The assembly area available can be a serious bottleneck when it comes to scheduling and capacity planning for the assembly of special machines or bulky products at the construction site. Additional complications to be considered are changing delivery, assembly, commissioning and dismantling times and restrictions such as the floor load-bearing capacity, construction height and crane loads. With AREAPLAN, we help you efficiently plan assembly projects in a limited area under these conditions. Area planning becomes completely transparent, and optimized processes save you money.
"Everyday assembly planning and running through different configuration options has become much easier and clearer since the introduction of AREAPLAN. The strength in the solution is the improved project transparency for everyone. Future projects can be viewed over their complete time-frame. Any delivery delays that could affect the customer’s dead-lines are immediately highlighted, and clear for everyone to see."
AREAPLAN was created in close cooperation with FILL, our long-standing customer and a Visual Components user. The solutions available on the market at the time were designed only for one-time setup of assembly and project shops, and the special machine construction company therefore sought out a suitable alternative. We jointly took on the task of solving this complex problem.
This resulted in a powerful, efficient and future-proof shop planning tool that can be scaled at any time to accommodate expansions and new buildings. Unlike conventional methods, the new shop planning tool can recreate the constant changes between diverse projects and simulate time sequences in addition to the spatial shop allocation.
Our market research showed that this tool perfectly fulfills the demands faced by other manufacturers of special machinery or producers of bulky products intended for assembly at the construction site. This was how our project-related shop planning tool gave rise to our new AREAPLAN product.
