Production system and work cell design

Minimize project risk and maximize system efficiency with specialized toolsets for production system design.

Make faster, more informed decisions at every step from estimation to installation

Icon for estimation

Confidently estimate or bid on projects

Create up-front concepts with the right level of detail to accurately scope costs and timelines.

Icon for using data

Use insights to improve system performance

Visualize and evaluate system efficiency early in the process to make more informed design decisions.

Icon for design tools

Design more productively with specialized toolsets

Build your model faster and with fewer errors using capabilities specific to production system and work cell design projects.

Icon for completing project on time

Handover projects on time and on budget

Accelerate installation and reduce change orders by flagging potential issues early and planning construction sequences.

Factory line design done better

Production system designers need tools that cater to their unique process. Read this e-book to learn about the production system and work cell design capabilities that can help you meet the needs of your customers and deliver high-performing systems quickly.

Software for production system design

Video: Point cloud scanning

Accurately capture as-is state

Use laser scan data to measure, markup, and run clash detections between point clouds of the current state and the proposed design.

Video: Equipment asset library

Build a library of configurable assets

Author configurable equipment assets that can be inserted into system layouts and shared with your internal team or via the cloud.

Video: Production line design layout

Create production line layouts with ease

Use your familiar AutoCAD toolset and then convert 2D layouts into detailed 3D models automatically to inform critical design decisions.

Video: Virtual walk-throughs

Perform virtual walk-throughs

Make it easy for all stakeholders to understand the design intent with virtual walkthroughs of the integrated design and facility.

Video: Clash detection

Spot potential clashes before installation

Analyze your layout for clashes and space constraints to help identify potential problems that could occur during installation.

Video: Installation documentation

Create installation documentation

Quickly generate installation drawings of your production system design, including plan, section, and elevation views.
