Create a ProModel Simulation for an Existing Factory Layout in AutoCAD or Inventor

Module overview

This module will demonstrate how to create a process simulation for an existing factory layout using ProModel Simulation. These workflows help to bridge the gap between factory layouts designed using Factory Design Utilities in AutoCAD and Inventor and ProModel's powerful simulation capabilities. 

This module takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. By the end of module, you should be able to:

  • Develop the line layout for simulation in AutoCAD
  • Model the line layout performance inside ProModel
  • Modify the line layout in AutoCAD to increase production efficiency
