Applied Manufacturing Technologies announces service to automate analysis tasks
Orion, Michigan - January 8, 2007 - Applied Manufacturing Technologies announced the availability of new programming and development services to customize standard ergonomic simulation tools. The new service offers customers customized ergonomic evaluation tools that can be embedded within standard ergonomic simulation software to improve their manufacturing process by automating repetitive tasks and providing detailed analyses.
"Many issues pertaining to workcell ergonomics can be resolved by utilizing ergonomic simulation. However, standard ergonomic simulation software lacks customer specific ergonomic evaluation tools necessary to thoroughly minimize costs upfront. The tools within the software are very generic," said Joe Campbell, chief operating officer for Applied Manufacturing Technologies Inc. "With our new programming and development services, we can offer customers a more sophisticated tool set."
AMTs new programming and development services can help manufacturers automate repetitive tasks and provide customers with detailed analyses. Software customizing within ergonomic simulation can automate the process of taking measurements from simulation, performing calculations, putting the results into a report, and formatting the report. Additionally, many companies use specific analyses that are done only within their company and not found within standard simulation software. Simulators must retrieve values from simulation and manually apply those measurements to analysis equations. The nature of customized software allows these analyses to be performed by the user by only the click of a button. This seamless integration is undetectable by the user. AMT also uses customized software within simulation to provide more realistic motion for human models.

(AMT) is a leading supplier of complete consulting and engineering services, offering single-source engineering solutions to the automation and manufacturing industries.
