We feel at home wherever component parts are assembled

We have gained our expertise and tools from the automotive sector and were able to transfer this knowledge to many other industries. Today we are also involved in aircraft, medical care and consumer products industries.

An interdisciplinary team of experienced assembly experts guarantees successful project work by Plan B assembly planning. In addition to engineers of various disciplines our team is made up of constructors, programmers and business economists. This range of proficiency ensures that complex assembly planning tasks are viewed, rationalised and considered from all necessary perspectives.

Planning in every detail

Assembly Process

With the use of customized planning modules, we are able to support concept development through to operational production. All our planning projects start with a thorough analysis of both product and process. Our planning always proceeds "from the inside out", targeting your specific priorities.

Our unique selling point is the combination of planning and realisation of assembly planning projects. On completion of the conception and planning phase, we can provide assistance in the selection of suppliers and implementation, or we can completely realise the project with our department of special-purpose engineering, Plan B assembly solutions. Either way, valuable experience gained from such projects flows directly back into our planning team.

We are well acquainted with all industries wherever component parts are assembled. Our knowledge and experience has been gained from automotive sector. We are now transferring this knowledge to aircraft, solar and consumer products industries.

What about you - what product do YOU assemble?

The apparently impossible does not intimidate us.

Digital Planning

Assembly processes and material flows are complex issues. Our simulation tools aim to make your manufacturing system manageable and comprehensible. Increase your productivity and benefit from resources, in order to reduce costs and optimise the working conditions for your employees.

  • Human Simulation
  • Material flow simulation
  • Machine simulation

With these building blocks, we are able to set up a virtual representation of your production facility. Your individual requirements determine the level of detail - from examining basic concepts, to a fully functional digital twin of your facility.

Benefits and goals of the digital factory are increased efficiency, improved planning quality, an abridged product launch and standardised planning processes.

We develop and optimize your technical concepts

Plant designs

Beyond process planning, we are able to develop precise technical concepts for workstations, transport solutions, automatic stations and robot cells. With a profound construction expertise and the most andvanced tools for 3D-construction and simulation, we create a functional basis for subsequent detailed construction. We will develop a variety of concept designs, which will then enable all influencing factors to be discussed and considered according to their priority at a very early project phase.

The evaluation of existing installations and their optimisation also requires the same approach and expertise. In many cases, we have been able to increase the plant efficiency significantly with specific modifications. For changes of cycle time or the introduction of new products we can handle the complete conversion planning. Thus, the subsequent utilisation of facilities offers significant potential for cost savings.

As with process development we adopt a holistical approach. Technical aspects such as mechanical, electrical and IT connections play just as important a role as issues of operablity and ergonomics.

Project management

External observation has often resulted in significant changes being implemented. As external project management consultants, Plan B benefits from not being directly involved in operational hierarchies. You will be surprised how quickly we familiarise ourselves with your company, your systems and the characteristics of your production. We assume overall responsibility and open communication paths, despite sometimes awkward issues. Close integration with the team has always proved to be a guarantee for success.

Our actions are always project-related and in consequence inter-divisional. We consider individual, operational framework conditions, deadlines, costs and resources and achieve agreed project targets by providing professional stimuli and motivating the existing team.

 

White Paper »Assembly Planning«

Assembling represents the core business of many companies. In order to ensure maximum benefit and efficiency, optimal planning is required.  To gain competitive advantage, it is essential for a company to have flexibility of manufacture, be able to prompt new product variants and also to react quickly to quantity changes. The investment both in assembly systems and the related IT-technology should be characterised by long-term-usability and variablity. Fundamental requirements such as efficiency, ergonomics and energy efficiency are afforded equal focus in order to achieve 100% product quality.

Planning and construction of assembly systems is a complex and profound matter. Our free white paper "Assembly Planning in Practice - the Plan B Method" will provide a comprehensive overview and summarise key elements and the essential procedure.
