Assembly Simulation Engineer

Perform feasibility studies of your assembly or disassembly process to mitigate problems and improve first-time quality with the DELMIA Assembly Simulation Engineer Role

DELMIA Assembly Simulation Engineer enables Manufacturing Engineers to validate product assembly and disassembly processes in 3D. A range of powerful, intuitive capabilities reveal any potential assembly issues.

Users can see the difficulty or ease of adding or removing a part and the associated tooling. These discoveries are quickly shared with other stakeholders, making change management faster and less complicated. The savings in time and cost are substantial, especially when applied to a large number of tools or complex production setups.

Assembly Simulation Engineer Benefits

Determine feasibility early in the design phase

Companies can perform assembly and disassembly feasibility studies early in the product and process design phase, when making changes are simpler and not as costly.

Determine assembly process validation during detailed process plan definition

Provides direct access to the operation sequences and product positions defined upstream by process engineers, eliminating the need to set up the initial state of the visualization before the assembly process detailing and validation. It supports configured product and process cases. This allows the manufacturing engineer to check several product and process configurations and fully validate the feasibility of the process

Improve assembly and maintenance process plans quality

Create and validate the assembly process in the context of the shop floor environment, with the best possible understanding of how it may impact the manufacturing or maintenance process.

Assembly Simulation Engineer Highlights

Interactively create assembly trajectories

View and share the product in its assembled state in 3D with other project stakeholders. Using simple, intuitive commands, they can create interference-free product disassembly trajectories and discover potential design-for-assembly issues earlier. Assembly trajectory creation capabilities cover different levels of assembly simulation and validation, including products, manufacturing items and detailed process plan validation.

Easily edit and modify trajectory paths

Provides simple, intuitive tools that let users edit a part’s trajectory. They can add, remove, or re-order points along the part’s trajectory path. Through the display of length and angle editors, users can easily control the distance value when creating linear or rotary motion.

Initialize Track Begin position with previous product position

Initialize the Track Begin point of the Operation Track from a part bin or a position defined by a previous operation. When the part bin position or a previous operation’s end position is changed, the new point position is automatically taken into account in the Operation Track.

See the product buildup, operation by operation, in the resource context

Leverage the work of upstream process engineers who have defined the manufacturing assemblies and the associated sequence of operations. To see the product buildup in the context of the selected operation and 3D layout of assigned resources, just select the desired operation from a Gantt chart, the tree, or an operation thumbnail. Get a clear picture of the state of the assembled product in the current context of the resources without the distraction of other product parts.

Define collections for clash detection

Within Assembly Simulation Engineer, manufacturing engineers can define different collections of part and assemblies to be considered either as moving or contextual group. Between each of these collections, the user can detail specific clearances to be considered during path computation. This will allow the user to fully specify the clash detection conditions without having to use the Manufacturing Simulation model with related scenarios and probes, and simply rely on the PPR Context model.

Define assembly simulation scenarios

Define and store assembly scenarios. Select trajectories and analyze the simulation. Multiple scenarios can be defined and saved, which helps users perform feasibility studies and evaluate the impact of product and assembly process changes. Users can play the results of a manufacturing scenario in a simulation or validation context without re-computing the simulation.

Detect interference during simulation

Assembly Simulation Engineer provides interference detection during simulation of the assembly process, making it easy to identify where further analysis is needed. Easily modify trajectories or the order of operations to avoid interference where possible. Users can also communicate seamlessly with product or resource designers to rectify design-for-assembly or design-for-manufacturing issues.

Create choreographed simulations

Define simulations of specific activities such as changing part colors, turning the visibility of parts on and off, displaying text and annotations, and modifying the camera position between trajectory moves. The Assembly Simulation Engineer interface allows process engineers to use a Gantt chart to manage, track, and choreograph parallel and sequential activities. This helps to define process animations suitable for collaborative reviews and presentations.

Design in simulation context

During simulation, users can stop and switch to a design application like Part Design or Sketcher, maintain the current transient state, and facilitate design changes in context. This helps them to modify resource designs with respect to geometrical constraints imposed by the 3D simulation context, and validate resources early in the process.

Perform swept-volume analysis during simulation replay

Generate swept volumes of part trajectories during animation replay. Swept volume results can be updated when a design or assembly path change occurs, eliminating the need for the creation of a new swept volume. Swept volumes are useful when analyzing the space constraints needed to manipulate a part into its assembled position—and to communicate these requirements to part designers and other stakeholders.
