Design and simulation software
By Alison Dunn
Famic Technologies has launched Automation Studio P6, a trade-oriented system design, simulation, documentation, training and maintenance software solutions in the fields of fluid power, electrical and automation. P6 is the fourth complete Automation Studio new design. The software is designed to let companies safely perform collaborative work on a project or share key information, be it with customers, suppliers, or colleagues. P6 allows users to define defect scenarios in order to trigger failures during system simulation. A set of virtual dynamic instruments helps diagnose and repair these failures. This is designed to provide a safe and efficient environment to train maintenance and service personnel and sharpen their skills relating to specific equipment or systems. The user interface detects the discipline (i.e. fluid power, electrical, automation) and automatically adapts by displaying applicable commands and functions.
