Injection Molding Inventory Management
Husky Factory Planning requested Visual8 to develop a simulation model of its SP Berner’s plant in Valencia, Spain in order to determine operational best practices for inventory management and lot sizes to maximize service levels to their customers.
Sappi Materials Handling Simulation
Sappi planned to install a new hardwood pulper, and Visual8 was tasked with creating a simulation model of the process. This Materials Handling Simulation could be used to quickly examine design alternatives and quantify their impact on production.
Paint Production Planning & Scheduling
BASF’s current scheduling process was achieved by manually sequencing a large number of small batches for different products, colors, and packaging requirements. The client contacted Visual8 to develop a discrete-event sequencing application, using SIMUL8-Planner, for the Louisville Facility.
Moen Plating Line Optimization
Project Case Study: Moen Plating Line Optimization Visual8 Deploys Custom Integrated Optimization Solution for Moen® Plating Line, Increasing Schedule Attainment by Over 30%
Robotic Patch Line Simulation
Georgia-Pacific’s Corrigan Plant produces a variety of plywood products for the building and construction industry. When the need arose to install a Robotic Synthetic Patch Line, Visual8 was engaged to develop a series of simulation models of the potential designs.
Nibco Capital Planning Project
Nibco found Visual8 simulation solutions to be a valuable tool for testing new strategies and communicating the results internally to team members.
