Simulation is a powerful tool that can be used to model small or large, simple or complex manufacturing, warehouse, or distribution processes. Simulation is often chosen due to its flexibility in terms of customization, and is the primary tool used to answer the “What If” question. Whether you are attempting to mitigate a bottleneck, gain confidence in your design process, reduce costly design mistakes, or justify initial capital expenditure for equipment, simulation is the right tool to support your analysis.
Typical 2-dimensinal CAD drawings can only convey so much information. Viewing a 3-dimensional model of a new warehouse, distribution center, or equipment (ie. conveyor systems, ASRS systems, racking, mezzanines) is a simple way to depict a solution to stakeholders whom may have varying levels of knowledge of these systems. Whether you are a distributor attempting to add value in your sales cycle, or seeking approval from management to procure new equipment or system, Velis can provide a solution which benefits your needs.
We recommended additional entry/exit lanes, a second scale, and process changes that would yield a 62 percent reduction in the check-in/check-out duration, greatly enhancing warehouse efficiency.
