DIGITAL FRIENDS

    Digitization of product life cycle

    Digital consistency in the product life cycle - this includes a process chain with automatisms and products that have been standardized and stored in a database. Simultaneous engineering in the mechatronic concept has enormous advantages for every enterprise.

    DIGITAL FRIENDS enables the digital twin as an element of Industry 4.0 and serves as a processing and improvement database in the enterprise for horizontal and vertical digitization of all levels.

     

     

     

    Range of services/sub-areas

    Four areas for your Digital Factory

    Through the four areas/processes Plant Design & Material Flow Planning, Process Detailing & Manufacturing Planning for Automation, Process Detailing & Manufacturing Planning for Machining Area and Process Reliability Validation, running processes can be analyzed, visualized, simulated and improved. Integrated planning, implementation, control and continuous improvement of all essential factory processes and resources in connection with the product can be carried out in a cost-saving and effectively optimized manner.

    Plant Design and material flow planning

    Simulation of complete production systems within the digital consistency of the product development process: planning - analysis - optimization of material flow, output, layout, automation and scenarios. All from project planning phase onwards with the help of the standard database.

    Process detailing and manufacturing planning for automation

    3D simulation of complete production systems within the digital consistency in the product development process: planning - analysis - optimization on material flow, output, layout, automation, scenarios, accessibility, interference contours and ergonomics. All from the project planning phase with the help of the standard database.

    Process detailing and manufacturing planning for working/machining area

    3D planning and simulation of the production process in the machining area of complete production systems within the digital consistency in the product development process: machining and process technology, cycle time, line balancing, machining definition with own cycles and generation of the NC code. All from the project planning phase with the help of the standard database.

    Process reliability validation

    3D-NC simulation of the production process in the processing area of complete production systems within the digital consistency in the product development process: cycle time, collision inspection, line balancing, strokes and accessibility of the machine. All from the project planning phase with the help of the standard database.

    Advantages

    SIMULATION SOLUTIONS FOR DEMANDING CUSTOMERS

    For years, FFG/MAG has implemented a multitude of sophisticated simulation solutions for renowned automobile manufacturers and suppliers, who were convinced of the advantages of DIGITAL FRIENDS simulations right from the start:

    • Shortened project time
      Through virtual planning and simulation, project time can be efficiently shortened and thus market entry or commissioning can take place earlier. 
       
    • Cost savings
      Costs can be reduced by shortening the project time.
       
    • Quality improvement
      Through simultaneous engineering with a mechatronic concept, planning quality and plant availability can be increased dynamically, flexibly and innovatively.
       
    • Automation
      Simulations can be automated through standardization such as a common database.
