Berkeley, CA – System Insights and Autodesk announced today that they are teaming to build solutions to marry 3D spatial modelling with real-time manufacturing data analytics. The first glimpse of these capabilities will be presented at Autodesk University 2013 in Las Vegas, December 3-5.
Carl White, Senior Director of Manufacturing Engineering Products at Autodesk stated, “By working with System Insights we aim to increase the visibility of manufacturing operations to facilitate flexible, agile and efficient production”. The solutions will also be able to identify areas where production efficiency and energy usage can be optimized and the traceability of product flows and processes can be improved. The synthesized data views will inform decision-making on production scheduling, plant layout, maintenance and asset health, process planning and toolpath design and evaluations of new capital investments.
Dr. Athulan Vijayaraghavan, Founder & CTO of System Insights, said, “We are very excited in partnering with Autodesk to bring VIMANA's realtime manufacturing data analytics to Autodesk's range of digital tools for factory design. By bringing the vimana’s proven capabilities in improving manufacturing productivity to Autodesk's products, we will be providing users a comprehensive realtime solution to visualize plant layouts, manage shop floor assets, and optimize complex production flows. These capabilities will increase manufacturing profitability, reduce operating costs, and improve energy efficiency and sustainability.”
