Today, companies that want to employ Lean Implementation principles to their operations realize that they need to examine their processes. After all, many problems don't necessarily stem from equipment or employees--it is wasteful activities and misspent time that can squander money and slow production. In many factories, at least 60 percent of their processes are wasteful, and can be eliminated. But to identify new solutions, you may need to conduct a more thorough investigation than just walking the factory floor. 3-D visualization is the latest in cutting-edge process simulators.

With 3-D visualization, you can enter all your data--including reports imported from your files--to create a multidimensional model of your workplace. Images can be incorporated from standard 3-D file formats. Sophisticated software systems will even automatically generate conveyors, and position objects based on statistical information from your processes.

It's easy to "see" why studying a 3-D model would have more benefits than looking at a two-dimensional drawing. After all, your production lines are three-dimensional--so you'll get more realistic feedback from analyzing a true-to-life copy. It's easier to determine which changes will be suitable for your floor space. Plus, with 3-D visualization software, you can zoom in and out, or view multiple aspects of your operations.

Bring Simulations to Life with 3-D Visualization

In short, 3-D visualization can be persuasive, dynamic, and innovative. If you need to present any potential changes for approval, 3-D visualization will give your higher-ups a clear view of your intentions. And a 3-D model is perfect to show employees what any new processes will entail. 3-D visualization software is available online, or through software dealers.
