Dematic’s Advanced Computer Simulation Modeling Software

You wouldn’t buy a car without taking it for a test drive; so why would you consider implementing a new logistics system without seeing how it is going to perform under a range of different operating conditions?

With Dematic’s advanced computer simulation modeling software, you can do just that: test drive your factory, warehouse or distribution center operation before finalizing the system design.

When test driving a new car, you select the route you travel based on the features of the car that you want to exercise. Similarly when constructing a simulation model, the ‘route’ is selected depending upon the objectives of the study. Simulations can range from a simple Concept Animation to a highly complex Operational System Capability Study. 

Supply Chain Services uses a 3D modeling tool called AutoMOD to replicate the proposed material handling solution. Using actual customer data and projections, they can prove throughput, identify bottlenecks, refine software and controls logic, and compare various operational planning methods.
