Introduction of CIMSIM

If you ever come across digital manufacturing tools, you might have heard of the CIMSIM software tool. This computer integrated manufacturing tool is used for teaching and training to offer you a sense of the manufacturing industry's work environment. And, to gain the necessary expertise, you must be familiar with some applications, CIMSIM being one of them.

Here, I am going to give you a brief introduction to this tool.

What is CIMSIM

So, it is a didactic, interactive, easy-to-use simulation tool for teaching and training in the areas of manufacturing Automation. And it is used extensively to teach and train in the areas of enterprise integration. CIMSIM is also widely utilized in flexible manufacturing, integrated computer-aided manufacturing, manufacturing process management, and product lifecycle management. It's used in both Automation and Industry 4.0. It is a library of hardware that you can use to build and simulate your factory floor. Here, you can customize the factory layout, and sequence process times. You will also learn how to minimize processes to reduce idle time. It's a terrific way to learn about the various technologies that go into manufacturing and explore them in a virtual environment.

What will you get by learning this tool?

As previously indicated, this instrument is commonly utilized in factory automation training and instruction. By completing the course work and working extensively on this software application, you can implement industry-relevant shop floor processes across numerous industrial verticals. so, whether you are looking for a career in robotics, automation, or Industry 4.0 hands-on knowledge of this software is a must.

Why do we use CIMSIM?

As I already mentioned, it is used in flexible manufacturing systems and computer integrated manufacturing. We use it as simulation software. we can connect it with various machines and can observe run time and performance. To improve the system and make it error-free we use it.

CIMSIM's Objective

The purpose of this software is to create a platform for you to improve your core manufacturing abilities and apply them in real-world situations. In the Abhyaz platform, we are providing this tool and the features are given below.

Features of CIMSIM

  • Online with MTAB CIM setup and offline simulation software-You can witness the program in action with machines that have a hardware setup similar to the MTAB SIM arrangement. We may use it as a simulation software both online and offline.
  • Automatic safety features for machines in online mode-If you develop a program that may cause conflicts, it will notify you or issue a warning. For example, if you run the application, the machine will crash.

  • Three navigation screens are available to view all the devices working during runtime- Because it is computer integrated manufacturing, multiple machines can be linked to a single tool. As a result, we've created three navigation displays. As a result, you may see all of the devices you desire at the same time.

  • Network-based data transfer technology implemented for the communication of master to equipment Animated help file to execute the software- It will allow you to execute a program in software if you have one.

  • Each machine status and individual process time is displayed at a time and estimated time allocation for each command- It will tell you how long your program will take to complete when you run it physically, as well as how long each machine will take. The separation will also be shown. Alternatively, the combined machine time and process time will be presented.
