DISCOVERING THE POSSIBILITIES

John DeereCompany: Deere and Company – Agricultural Equipment Manufacturer
Product Used: Custom System Package
Objectives:Create a computer simulation model of a new Paint Line System prior to construction and installation in order to define the following parameters:

  • Conveyor system logic
  • Optimum number of load spurs
  • Paint process purge strategy
  • Required length of cooling conveyors
  • Sizing of storage areas during normal operation and purge cycles

Results: The system simulations were performed before actual installation in the plant. This allowed the system designs to be optimized, the operating strategies to be defined in advance and saved considerable amount of time, money, and bad surprises during the startup phases. The animated models were used first as a communication tool between Deere and the system contractors. After the installation of the system, the computer simulation and animations were used as an operation and scheduling tool for the plant employees.
