System Throughput Analysis
A dental appliance manufacturer needed more throughput in their plant and wanted to purchase an additional robotic trimming cell. They believed that this area would be the bottleneck to achieving the new required production volumes, and as a result, they contracted their system integrator to initiate the purchase.
AMT was contracted to simulate the manufacturing process and make recommendations. AMT used software simulation tools to model the manufacturing process that the dental appliance manufacturer was currently employing. The simulation revealed surprising results, and saved the manufacturer approximately $350,000.
