Thirty years of confidence
granted to flow simulation projects

Our clients are often large and well-known groups, but smaller companies, with equally interesting issues, have also called on our software and services.

The most famous are called Airbus, Air France, Alcan RioTinto, Areva, Ariane Group, Arkema, AstraZeneca, Aventis, BioMérieux, Bouygues, Chantiers de l’Atlantique, CSTB, Collins, Constellium, Cristal, Dassault Aviation, Danone, Dekra, ELI Lilly, Elkem, Estavayer Lait, Eurenco,  Fenwick Linde, Firmenich, Frontex, GlaxoSmithKline, Hager Electro, Ifremer, Jacobs, Johnson&Johnson, Kelloggs, Kerneos, La Poste, Lafarge, MEDA, Monsanto, Norpac, Novatech, OCP Maroc, Pepsico, Procter&Gamble, Quick Restaurants, Rhodia Solvay, Seqens, SNCF, Sofraden, Technip, ThyssenKrupp, Total, Toyota, Trivium Packaging, Unilever, Vico, Yoplait…

Our studies based on flow simulation have served many purposes:

Assign labor and equipment, test the efficiency of an investment, avoid queues of people, introduce a new product, analyze costs and manufacturing cycles, validate the fluidity of infrastructure for pedestrians, sizing kanban loops, testing production capacity, comparing evacuation routes, analyzing the profitability of a project and understanding its implications, reorganizing an administrative service, characterizing public reception areas, helping in  scheduling production, estimating the performance of an automated system, checking the fluidity of exchange centers, reducing stocks, work in progress, manufacturing cycles, etc.

All perspectives, all parameters

All perspectives, all parameters

It started with studying the impact of the "drive" on the surrounding roads, for several restaurant sites. Then the flow simulation won over the planning of the team members, the configuration of the workstations, the production ranges, the quality of the service...

Robots on production line

Robots on production line

Robots, cranes, skips and shuttles revolve around a new machine for cutting metal bars: applied to a production plan, it becomes a complex ballet whose simulation helps improving performance.

Security of matches at the Peace Stadium

Security of matches at the Peace Stadium

Here the simulation must test evacuation scenarios, with a very large volume of people to evacuate from the "Stade de la Paix". Clearances and stairs have been sized to ensure safety and efficiency.

Converging towards a building

Converging towards a building

Between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., more than 3,000 users of the Alto tower in La Défense arrive on foot, by metro, by car or by RER towards the offices building. A complex route which can be dangerous, and required fluidity checking at the entrances of the tower.

Entrance of a congress center

Entrance of a congress center

Congress attendees, speakers, translators, various staff converge on the reception desk some time before each conference or meeting: equipment and teams must be well sized to ensure both safety and comfort.

Looking for OEE

Looking for OEE

The model tracks down small stops or slowdowns that together impact Availability, Performance and Quality, and indicates ways to improve productivity, in particular through better sizing of conveyors.

The best production plan?

The best production plan?

The simulation here tests different production plans on a current and on a future installation, where certain products would be more prominent. Equipment and resources dedicated to certain product ranges complicate flows...

From bottle to pallet

From bottle to pallet

1Point2 works regularly on drug packaging lines, having built generic tools that allow to play with the rates, the stocks of consumables to be refueled, the conveyor speed, the related movement of pallet flows.

Travelers in the Toulouse metro

Travelers in the Toulouse metro

The construction of the 3rd metro line uses dynamic simulation to test the architecture of the stations and the layout of spaces as well as efficiency of vertical circulations.
