Define Factory Resource Layouts
DELMIA Resource Layout (RLT) gives manufacturing planners advanced, efficient tools for factory resource layout. They can leverage 2D factory drawings, if they’re available. RLT includes a catalog of parametric resources such as conveyers, shelving, tables, and containers that can be snapped to 2D drawings to quickly realize the 3D layout. Advanced positioning makes it very easy to move, snap, and align these resources.
RLT creates a V6 3D environment for defining and validating shop floor layouts, delivering them to the shop floor for construction, and sharing them with downstream stakeholders for enriching and validating process plans.
- Fast and efficient layout definition
- Collaborative plant design and early discovery of layout problems
- Access to layout data throughout the extended enterprise
- Leveraging of intellectual property
Define resource hierarchiesYou can use pre-defined resource types such as conveyors, robots, fixtures, and tool devices to categorize and organize resources. You can create an organization tree that represents a factory, line, workstation, or other resource type, locate the resources in the V6 catalog, and instantiate (copy) them into the organizational tree. Using patterns lets you quickly create a layout with properly aligned resources.
Import existing 2D drawings and blueprintsWhen 2D drawings are available, RLT gives you a way to import them into the V6 3D environment. They are placed on the layout floor so you can snap resources into defined positions.
Choose ready-to-use parametric resources from a catalogRLT includes a catalog of parametric resources—conveyors, part bins, tables, chairs, and shelves, to name a few. Users can select a resource and edit its parameters using a dialog box. RLT generates the geometry, and the resource can then be positioned in the 3D layout. All newly created resource instances can be edited again, and their parameters changed, with a specialized intuitive dialog.
Choose ready-to-use non-parametric resources from a catalogRLT also gives you a catalog of standard resources—hand tools, drilling stations, hangers, robots. You can select the resource from the catalog and copy it into the 3D layout for positioning.
Position and manipulate resource positions in 3DRLT’s 3D positioning tools let any user position a resource easily and accurately in the V6 3D immersive environment. Users can instantly snap a resource to a location, align it with other geometry, measure and move a specified distance, and check for physical contact (interferences).
Extract dimensioned and annotated 2D drawingsUsers can generate dimensioned, annotated 2D drawings of the 3D layout for use on the factory floor.
