SDI INDUSTRY: An Extend-based Tool for Continuous and High-Speed Manufacturing
Continuous or high-speed manufacturing equipment is an integral part of the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and consumer products industries. For many years, these industries have tried to use simulation to improve their processes with less than desired results. In the past, aggregation or continuous modeling techniques have been used which resulted in largely inaccurate and slow models. SDI Industry, the first simulation tool designed specifically for this type of process, is built from the highly popular Extend simulation package. It provides a unique architecture for simulating these industries and the complex control logic associated with them. Organizations use SDI Industry to evaluate scheduling strategies and plant configurations, find bottlenecks, and improve throughput. Industry provides an integrated database which allows the simulation fast access to data for failures, changeovers, and many other aspects of operation.
