A manufacturer of doors and windows uses simulation to optimize his painting department

The customer’s challenge


The increase in demand forces the manufacturer to review its painting process and increase the production rate of the department. The customer wants to optimize the production of its units. The following elements make the system impossible to analyze with an Excel spreadsheet:

  • The product mixes
  • Custom products
  • The variable production steps
  • The different operation times from a product to another
  • Work cells availability
  • The schedules
In addition, the client considers the possibility of selling the department’s services to third parties.
