Abstract

Suppliers of industrial paint finishing lines usually have only a relatively short time in which to submit tenders for the lines and get them up and running. “Simultaneous engineering” meets this need. Focuses on simulation software which allows the behaviour of projected installations as well as the associated physical and logistical processes to be examined in detail. Describes the 3D simulation system currently being used by ABB to determine object motion and material flow.
