Over the past five years, new technologies and players have emerged to disrupt companies and markets. Consumers continue to pressure manufacturers to create new products faster than ever. It’s unlikely that this will ease up, forcing industrial players to adapt to this faster timeline, in part with simulation-based design.

Manufacturing systems are changing from low-variability, worldwide shipping models to ones that include multiple products, smaller batches, made-to-order models, and factories closer to the consumer. This shift in production and supply chains requires a new strategy and a new process – one that involves simulation and robotics.

This webcast will explore the different roles and components involved in simulation-based design of production lines including robots.

In addition, attendees will learn how different designs and engineering changes can be accessed and utilized from a single platform. By collaborating across multiple engineering disciplines in a simulated environment, the manufacturing system can become a reality in the shortest amount of time.

Robotics Business Review Editor Keith Shaw hosts this webcast with Tony Karew, software introduction specialist at Dassault Systemes’ Delmia brand.

Karew has more than 15 years of experience helping companies transform the way they bring products to market by helping them implement new technologies for manufacturing.

For instance, product lifecycle management (PLM) technologies can help companies leverage design and manufacturing IP to streamline their processes and bring products to market faster than ever before.

Karew also has experience with technologies such as simulation-based design for robotics, as well as offline programming for spot welding, arc welding, and materials handling.

Karew will discuss the technology trends shaping the development of robotic manufacturing systems, as well as the benefits of using simulation-based design.
