With advances in automation, industry seeks for optimization while new products are developed and manufacturing processes are becoming smarter. In this sense, virtual manufacturing validations have been demanded for reducing the cost with physical prototypes, ensuring ergonomically safe processes and increasing the quality of processes by emulating it realistically, levering automation utilization in industry environments with a faster and safer manner. By that, this research proposes the use of Tecnomatix Siemens® PLM software for process simulation of 7050 aluminum drilling, material which is widely used in aerospace industry, allowing the evaluation of complexes scenarios with multi-robot integration and its conditions and variables, in order to improve the machining process and its aeronautical structural assemblies. Thus, this research provided a relevant contribution regarding the analysis of main process parameters to obtain an efficient sequence of drilling, its productivity and ergonomic conditions.
