For 15 years, GBU has been working as a simulation service provider for Badische Stahl-Engineering GmbH (BSE).
BSE is a global consulting company for the electrical steel industry.
In the long years of cooperation, we have over 35 material flow simulations in the areas of junkyard,
Steel plant, finishing, storage and transport logistics for our customers.
In the last completed project at a German stainless steel manufacturer BSE was able to help
Our material flow simulation of the processes in the steelworks shows considerable potential for increasing efficiency.
GE Power AG has been working successfully with GBU mbH for almost 10 years.
As a global leader in energy, GE uses ProModel simulation software
and Process Simulator for planning new, as well as optimizing existing production facilities.
Using material flow and logistics simulations, new production concepts for complete factories
or individual areas are tested for their plausibility and effectiveness.
Also in the field of plant engineering with its complex products is the use of dynamic simulation
Proven in the concept phase and is now integrated as a "standard" in the project planning.
GLC Global Logistics Competence Ltd., a global logistics consultant based in Munich and London,
has decided to use Process Simulator.
Process Simulator is an important tool for GLC as part of its Logistics 4.0 initiative.
International Automotive Components (IAC) is one of the leading international automotive suppliers
for interior components and systems.
IAC uses a material flow simulation created by the GBU based on the logistics simulator ProModel.
For a new plant, machine purchase decisions are made with the help of our simulation solution
as well as the JIT/JIS supply of the OEM customer.
LOBP Consulting, a consulting company for the lubricant industry,
decided to use Process Simulator Professional.
With the help of Process Simulator, design planning in grease and lubricant plants
as well as bottling and packaging systems are visualized, possible bottlenecks are visualized and optimized.
Zahoransky AG, a full-service provider of
final packaging machines and
Tamping and shearing machines for brushes and brooms
has decided to use Process Simulator.
With the help of Process Simulator, the potential benefits of new investment concepts are analyzed and communicated to the customers.
The consulting company emtecon GmbH, a consulting firm for transformation processes such as leadership,
Company succession and technical processes have decided to use Process Simulator.
With the help of Process Simulator, for example, the operating and logistics processes in large kitchens are visualized,
analyzed and developed solutions together with the customers.
Meiss and Partners, a consulting firm that supports the implementation of excellence,
has decided to use Process Simulator Professional.
With the help of Process Simulator, value streams and business processes in companies are made transparent.
So necessary changes succeed much better.
The simulation software Process Simulator has been successfully used for many years
used by master students in the course simulation in production and logistics.
After a short introduction, the students independently work on a task from their company
and present the results of the simulation study during the course.
Magna Exteriors, a wholly owned subsidiary of Magna International,
is a global provider of exterior trim components and systems.
Process Simulator is used to optimize the JIT / JIS supply of OEM customers.
The challenge here is a very large number of variants and one
resulting large variance of process times in the assembly processes.
sedak stands for large format, high quality
insulating and safety glasses up to 3.51 x 20 meters.
With the help of Process Simulator the future-oriented production system
of the glass finisher is being analyzed, visualized and optimized.
Since 1999, the Leonardo Group has been helping companies around the world to become more effective in the long term.
We generate sustainability through our own holistic approach. This is developed and implemented in teams of lean experts and psychologists together with the employees. In this way, we implement the right lean tools and get the employees appreciative.
Managers and employees develop a new understanding of leadership and personal responsibility. In this way, we create questioning, learning organizations with our customers. Further information: www.leonardo-group.com.
The Leonardo Group has been using simulation solutions from GBU mbH for many years to safeguard the line design and material supply of mixed model lines. Based on the material flow simulations of the GBU based on the logistics simulators ProModel and Process Simulator, the developed line designs are analyzed, visualized and optimized in a time-dynamic manner before realization. Typical tasks are the calculation of the placement and number of IPCs, the scaling of the throughput over the number of employees used, the determination of the necessary Kanbanmengen for material supply and the design of the routes of tugger trains.
The issue of Industry 4.0 is being discussed very intensively among those responsible for production at the moment.
The trend is towards decentralization, autonomy and networking.
In this changing environment, successfactory supports companies in terms of quality and productivity
from the analysis over the improvement concept to the implementation and success control.
Lignum Consulting stands for consultancy, planning and organization for the international wood and furniture industry.
Lignum Consulting has decided to use Process Simulator in Industrial Engineering, in order to expand the activities
concerning factory and plant planning, process analysis and optimization and Lean Management.
Hüttenwerke Krupp Mannesmann GmbH (HKM) is the second largest integrated steel mill in Germany with around 3000 employees
and an extensive product range specializing in the production of steel for the processing industry.
