CSR Hebel is Australia’s leading manufacturer of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC), a lightweight masonry product in panel or block form that is widely used in the building industry all over the world today. They recently undertook the task of expanding their production capability through construction of a new manufacturing facility in Somersby on the Central Coast of NSW.
When initial designs were received from an equipment manufacturer, CSR Hebel engaged Simulation Modelling Services (SMS) to conduct an independent modelling based review to ensure that the design of the new facility would achieve their desired outcomes.
Working collaboratively with CSR Hebel, SMS were able to simulate the proposed design of the new factory using the Arena simulation software. Review of the simulation outcomes clearly demonstrated that the proposed design couldn’t meet the required performance criteria.
SMS were then able to work with CSR Hebel to identify options, quantify performance of those options and assist in the redesign of the factory to get to the point of achieving required outcomes.
