Making Better Manufacturing Decisions with AIM
FACTOR/AIM (AIM) is a simulation system designed specifically for use in manufacturing decision support. AIM has been successfully applied to engineering design, scheduling, and planning problems within numerous manufacturing organizations. AIM operates on the Windows 95® platform and all model data is stored in a Microsoft Access® database. This open database structure provides many new opportunities. Models can be built faster by importing data from existing sources into AIM. Custom reports are easily created with Access® report wizards. In addition, simulation based decision support applications complete with menus and dialog boxes can be developed with Access® application wizards. Unlike language-based simulation products which require modelers to learn specific syntax and then your system to fit this syntax, AIM uses the language of manufacturing. Example AIM components include machines, operators, materials, parts, jobsteps, process plans (routings), and conveyors. In additi...
