Leverage Your Digital Factory
Manufacture more profitably by optimizing your factory floor layouts with Digital Prototyping. Take advantage of interactive 3D visualizations to show non-technical stakeholders who need to approve layouts exactly what the factory layout will look like. By creating a digital model of your factory, you can make informed decisions before installing and commissioning equipment on the factory floor, and:

Optimize and Visualize Your Factory Floor
Drop digital prototypes of equipment onto your 2D layout, visually detect interferences, and quickly try different what-if scenarios to get the optimal factory layout. Include a person in your 3D factory layout model to check ergonomics—a virtually impossible task in 2D. Addressing such issues before implementation helps you start manufacturing on schedule—so you can capitalize on market opportunities that benefit your bottom line.

Intel plans, develops, and builds complex, multi-billion-dollar semiconductor "fabs." The company asks suppliers for digital prototypes of equipment, which it uses in the 3D factory models it creates with Autodesk® Factory Design Suite.

"When you think about it, a building information modeling (BIM) model is really a digital prototype of a building or of the installation of equipment into a building. If Intel can build all [our facilities] in a similar manner, the entire process will go more efficiently and accurately."
—Jason Hosch, Industrial Engineer, Intel
