Logistics Simulation

Visualise your best-case scenario

A new installation or adapting an existing, complex installation can bring uncertainties and profoundly challenge your industrial process.

From virtual tot reality

An Actemium consultant will discuss the scope of the system to be simulated with you, and what you want to achieve with the simulation. Our experience with simulating diverse production and logistical processes (conveyors, warehouse cranes, shuttles, lifts, AGVs, wrappers, etc.) enables us to communicate with you directly and efficiently and quickly understand the process exactly. This is also when we determine what input will be required to achieve a good and true simulation.

Basic model & scenarios

A dynamic and realistic basic model is created on the basis of the input collected. You then choose the various scenarios that you wish to simulate with this model. Thanks to its many years of experience and know-how in the area of industrial automation, Actemium can offer you suggestions with respect to your specific challenges. The built-in analysis tools help determine the optimum solution for your specific project. Finally, a well-founded decision can be taken using measurable data.

Benefits

  • Higher ROI from your logistics projects.
  • Determining the optimum performance of your industrial installations.
  • Risk-free test environment.

 

  • Better insight in your processes.
  • Detection of bottlenecks.
  • Result-oriented, sensible choices.

Typical application domains

  • Automatic warehouses.
  • Manual logistics.
  • Transport systems (conveyors, AGVs, cranes, sorting systems, etc.).
  • Assembly lines.
  • Packaging lines.
  • Production cells.
  • Process installations.
  • Robot cell.

Implementation

If you wish, Actemium can also execute your project. That offers you the certainty that the solution chosen will come as close as possible to the result of the simulation and you will have a very realistic estimate of both the costs and risks.

Simulation: a learning process

Simulation not only helps you take a decision, it also offers you better insight into your industrial processes. You get to better understand your installation and the factors that affect it.

By visualising in 2D or 3D, you furthermore obtain a clear and reliable model that reflects reality and can also be understood by people who are less familiar with the process. This allows you to communicate efficiently about the challenges and solutions.
