Body Shop Bottleneck Analysis
To address the issues and complexities of evaluating bottlenecks within the plant, Ford Motor Company approached Visual8 to develop a V8-Bottleneck decision support tool for its Bodyshop in the Wixom Plant.
Plant Workflow Simulation
With the growth in business, Cam-Slide’s Management team required a Plant Simulation of its Cam-Slide Plant operations to analyze space requirements throughout the plant as well as supply and product flows.
Door Module Assembly Layout
Intier approached Visual8 to develop a simulation model on the four assembly lines for the door modules within the Shelby plant to address the materials replenishment and delivery capability of the module assembly lines.
Supplier Park Simulation
GM introduced its first Automotive Supplier Park at its Car Assembly plant in Oshawa, Canada. Visual8 was hired by GM to produce a simulation model to allow GM to fully understand the new logistics system.
Vehicle Logistics Simulator
Toyota Logistics Services (TLS) approached Visual8 to develop a computer model of the vehicle supply system that would enable TLS to quickly determine the ideal set facility parameters and operating rules that would impact possible facility expansion projects.
Weld Shop Simulation
Visual 8 developed the TMMC Weld Shop Simulation tool that provided the engineering team the ability to redefine their line-speed and buffer sizes. This resulted in an improvement in operator utilization and an associated cost saving.
