Imagine a world where every construction project, no matter how big or small, is a masterpiece of efficiency, accuracy, and beauty.
PMI utilizes Siemens Tecnomatix Plant Simulation for Warehousing and Logistics Library software to enable you to rapidly create realistic simulation models of dynamic warehousing and logistics operations.
The fundamental needs for conceptual design simulations are user-friendliness and effective communication. During this stage, many aspects such as site layout, and time windows are still being considered, and detailed data is often limited. The comprehensive standard library facilitates conceptual simulations with user-friendly design tools, process flow animation, and visualization of critical performance indicators.
Detailed Warehouse Design
In the detailed design stage, accuracy and thorough "what-if" analysis are critical requirements. The available data on equipment and material flows can be used to refine conceptual designs. The library boasts a comprehensive collection of fully customizable equipment and control strategies for accurate simulations. An automated experiment evaluation environment provides the ability to analyze and optimize a variety of scenarios, including alternative layouts.
Planning and Optimizing Existing Operations
Comparing a warehouse operation to a simulation model is an objective way to improve its performance. Simulation models also play a role in operational planning. Efficient benchmarking is enabled by the ability to reuse data and have flexibility. A wide range of qualitative and quantitative data, such as past orders, inbound and outbound flows, and equipment failures, can be seamlessly integrated into the library, regardless of the source. Simulations create a dependable benchmark with a clear visualization of operational and performance metrics.
Redesign of Existing Processes
Periodically, warehouse operations require redesigning, typically when providing services for a new client or implementing technological advancements. During these changes, simulation can be highly beneficial. Trustworthy data about the current system can be utilized for this purpose. The Plant Simulation Warehousing and Logistics library is the ideal tool for even complex redesigns. Robust models can be created efficiently, and alternative scenarios and designs are clearly communicated through reports and 3D animations.
