Our goal is to make the complex understandable, so that business and manufacturing decisions can be made quickly and with confidence. Since 1992 some of the world’s largest companies have trusted Paragon Simulation to guide their business, including Airbus, BAA, Bentley, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan, Perkins, Ibstock Brick and Xerox.
By their nature our simulation analysis projects are highly sensitive, but some of our achievements to date have included:
- Locating and sizing buffers in a confined assembly space for a car manufacturer, increasing throughput by 200 vehicles a week;
- Right-sizing the number of work-centres in an engine machine-shop, saving £7m;
- Applying single piece workflow (lean manufacturing) to reduce work in progress by 40%, with a corresponding improvement in quality;
- Optimising buffer-capacity and line overspeed to save £11m in equipment and building costs for a new plant.
