Systems digital engineering tool optimises robot operations

March 28, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The Dassault Systèmes Dymola multi-engineering modelling and simulation tool allows engineers to analyse and optimise robot system dynamics and behaviour early in the design process.

Systems engineered robots and their environments operate as interactive 3D models from which their physical operation is defined and optimised. Users can create representations of complete systems as functional models for system level dynamic analysis. The CAD tool offers digital realism with 3D mathematically accurate robots and manufacturing cells. A physics engine incorporates detailed analysis and ensures that all systems can be optimised and integrated at component and system level.

When coupled with DELMIA Version 6 of Dassault Systèmes' digital manufacturing software, the virtual definition, planning, creation, monitoring and other production processes allow users to extend production resource optimisation. Humans are brought into the 3D model thanks to the software’s realistic manikins. Dymola’s system models are constructed from libraries representing physical parts including, motors hydraulics and electrics. Engineers can drag-and-drop these components to build up system schematics. DELMIA Version 6 and Dymola form part of Dassault Systèmes’ 3D Experience, to encourage collaborative innovation through the use of 3D models.
