Benefits of Ascon Digital Planning

Why should you work with Ascon Digital Planning

Continuous Data Availability: Enabling end-to-end availability of data, from planning to production, saves cost and time, by allowing all parties involved to work with the same data pool.

Interoperable Planning and Engineering Processes: A fully integrated and transparent exchange between planning, engineering and production leads to a more agile and optimized process, with a faster time-to-market and higher ROI.

Low-Code Process Planning: A low-code solution to design processes and automation capabilities, based on pre-defined models, will enable you to work faster and more efficient. Skilled worker shortages and long programming cycles are avoided.

AI and ML to Support Planning: Let AI and machine learning (ML) help you to optimize and automate your planning, e.g. planning tasks and results, in every phase of the process, so that you can focus on the truly important tasks.

Technological and Strategical Advantage: Digitally transforming your planning and production processes enables the bidirectional integration of data and information, leading to better decision-making and optimized workflows. Ultimately, you will benefit from higher quality, reduced costs, and shorter lead times.


Our mission
is to make production planning smoother by reducing efforts and time, improving the quality of the output and thus minimizing the risks of a flawed production plan.”

Features

What’s inside the Digital Planning?

Closed Loop:
We empower your planning, engineering, and operations teams to work with fully transparent and integrated data. For the first time, all teams operate from a unified data base, ensuring consistency in planning and execution. Our platform harmonizes data to meet the specific needs of each team at every phase, facilitating seamless collaboration. Insights and updates from one team are instantly accessible to others, enhancing efficiency and supporting the planning of new products or facilities.

Geometric Validation Enabler:
Experience an Industrial Metaverse gateway that enables a visual, geometric and 3D validation of a new or existing manufacturing plant. The conditions of the plant can be taken into account even in the early planning phase. To avoid any breakdowns (collisions, missing power supplies, etc.), visualize and validate new structures and equipment before the actual installation.

Simulate Material Flow:
Validate the entirety of your production systems, using 3D visualization (e.g. Nvidia Omniverse or Threedy). Model, validate and simulate all processes to ensure a smooth production process.

Resource and Layout Planning:
Pick and choose the necessary resources for your production from one central catalog in order to place them in a structured, virtual layout plan that will be optimized according to different criteria (such as costs, available space or time). This plan is the foundation for any further plant planning and production steps.

Manufacturing Process Design:
Define and optimize all processes for your production. This enables you to easily check the process for any issues, risks or other malfunctions, before actually starting or changing the production.

What can Digital Planning be used for?

Resource Planning

Common resource library simplifies planning.

Through a common (data) model, sensible resources can be chosen already in planning phase to avoid errors later in the process. Planning is production-related and shows gaps in the process, if applicable.

Variant Production

Plan and produce variants on the same production line.

Planning and production can quickly be updated and optimized, based on current data from machines. Quick adaptations to new input, such as customer preferences, means faster reaction to market changes.

Greenfield Planning

Plan your new production facility with ease.

All relevant parameters, requirements and specifications are defined, e.g. equipment, manufacturing processes, layouts for machines and facilities, safety and compliance requirements.

Brownfield Planning

Easy modernization, conversion, expansion of existing systems.

The possibility of simulating and testing planned changes based on a digital twin (new or existing) allows the early identification of potential risks, bottlenecks or problems.

End-to-end Data Availability

Use existing planning data to learn and save time and effort.

One continuous data model for all resource and process planning means every planning, engineering and production step is done on the same basis. This leads to less re-work and time and cost saving.
