  • Body Shop Bottleneck Analysis
    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
    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
    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
    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
    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
    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.
