Logistics Simulation
Logistics is the art and science of management, engineering and technical activities concerned with requirements, design and supplying, maintaining resources to support objectives plan and operation (Society of Logistics Engineers).
Logistics is a challenging and important activity because it serves as an integrating or boundary spanning function. It links suppliers with customers and it integrates functional entities across a company. With the ever-growing competition in today’s market place it becomes necessary for a firm to use its resources to focus on strategic opportunities. This includes several internal factors like management style, culture, human resources, facilities and several external factors like technology, globalization and competition.

Simulation software can help you increase your service reliability, optimize truck utilization, or complete more shipments. It can be used to identify areas of your logistics model that are causing problems, and then investigate solutions without expensive capital investments. FlexSim simulation software is especially effective at improving logistics systems. The pre-built objects make it easy to quickly build a model of your current system. With the model you can identify the problem and test solutions. Then you can improve your system with confidence.

Warehousing Simulation

Warehouses have specific system concerns. Whether it is cross dock, break bulk, storage, or consolidation warehouse simulation software can help make the processes within it more efficient. FlexSim simulation software can help optimize warehouse space and layout, identify ways to improve inventory turnover, or increase productivity of picking operations .

Supply-Chain Simulation

What if our supplier for this part went out of business? What if we shipped by train instead of truck? Simulation software can help measure the resiliency of a supply-chain and identify how changes on one end will affect the customer. FlexSim simulation software makes improving supply-chains easier. With a powerful statistics-based 64-bit engine, FlexSim can simulate any supply-chain no matter its size. .

Transportation Simulation

Simulation software makes improving your transportation process simpler. It can model the variability that is inherent in transportation, and determine the effectiveness of any approach. Building a network of transportation paths is easier with the built-in objects in FlexSim simulation software. Spend less time building a model and more time investigating ways to improve it.

Airport Simulation

Airports are complex systems that require comprehensive analysis. Simulation software is the ideal tool. It can help identify ways to reduce departure delays, improve baggage handling time, or move people more smoothly through security. Airport simulation with FlexSim is made easy by the built-in object library, where you can drag-and-drop people and equipment into the model. The 3D environment makes understanding what is really happening in your airport easier.

Traffic Simulation

Traffic simulation play keay role for planners and engineers that need an accurate and detailed assessmente of traffics impact on several environmental parameters, such us gas emission and road congestion. A simulation model that represent city topology, roads, travelling vehicles, traffic profile patterns is a perfect tool with the the purpose of analysis and assessment of vehicle movements and delivery activities and their impact on traffic and on environment. Simulation also allows to analyze a large number of operating scenarios, for different strategies and technologies, conduct comparisons and assess the impact of future conditions or events.

Emergency Simulation

Is your plan adequate? How long would it take to evacuate? Is a drill not feasible? Simulation software can be used to test evacuation or emergency plans. FlexSim simulation software is especially useful for analyzing emergency plans, because of it’s 3D environment. This allows you to see exactly what would happen, and where improvements could be made .
