Through our material flow simulation, we have already been able to visualize the potential for process optimization at many customers, for which we have subsequently found tailor-made solutions in reality. Based on feasibility studies, we see which scenarios achieve the highest performance in your company and which challenges their implementation brings with it. We can also visualize the results of our analyses for you on request - for example in 3D.
Since the material flow is dynamic, it can be optimised in many ways. For example, our logistics simulations help to identify undesirable situations so that they do not even occur in practice.
This is our offer for you:
Buffer size optimisation
Checking standard times
How can intralogistics processes and the use of AGVs be planned and optimized through simulation?
When using transport robotics and driverless transport systems (AGVS) in intralogistics, it is crucial to precisely analyse the respective task and then optimally plan and adapt the system - from the individual vehicle to the control of the entire system. EK AUTOMATION offers you dynamic simulation of your material flows. Complex intralogistics systems can thus be optimally planned and dimensioned. System boundaries, bottlenecks, correlations, plant modifications and alternative solutions can also be precisely mapped. Our dynamic simulation enables us to plan, display and optimise both AGVS based and AGVS independent systems and material flows for you.
Material flow simulations enable us to organise your logistics processes in the best possible way. In this way, we save you costs that would have been incurred if you had suboptimal planning. Poor planning can be recognised, for example, by unexpectedly deviating system performance, delays in project execution or low production capacities. Both the VDI and the Fraunhofer Institute confirm that simulations significantly reduce the costs of new investments.
The costs incurred by non-simulation are significantly higher than the costs for a simulation.
By means of simulations in 2D or 3D, we can also clearly present complex processes. If required, a simplified or more detailed presentation is also possible. In this way, people not familiar with the subject are able to better understand systems and recognise long-term effects through time-lapse presentation.
With the help of logistics simulations, concepts can be tested quickly and cost-effectively. For example, you can check whether and by what means a desired goal can be achieved. Our realised plants show that the real results correspond very exactly to the simulated results (agreement >90%).
