Automation Studio™ helps you draw quickly your machine in order to obtain a digital copy of the machines in your factory. The use of rich manufacturing catalogs in a database of thousands of preconfigured components allows you to have standardized symbols, their simulation behaviour, as well as all the manufacturer's references of the components you have in your machine.
Digital documentation allows you to easily modify your installation. Adding a new function to your machine may have drastic consequences on the overall performance of the machine. The simulation allows you to validate virtually any modification beforehand and to make the appropriate changes, as well as choose the right components. In case you want to upgrade your installation by replacing one element with another with different technical characteristics, Automation Studio™ allows you to check how this change affects your machine.
In production industries, the downtime of a machine has important consequences on the overall production of the plant, so it is important to minimize the downtime by ensuring that the defect has been properly identified during a failure. The Automation Studio™ Troubleshooting Module allows inserting virtual failures at the component level, which impairs the normal operation of the simulated machine. We can define and activate an infinity of What-If scenarios of failure or alteration of the performances of this machine. The symptoms thus reproduced during the simulation of the system makes it possible to diagnose the problems of the machine much faster by eliminating some potential causes without having to test this machine physically and, in many cases, without having to stop production to make the right diagnosis.
