Material Handling Simulation
Material Handling Systems utilize resources to move entities from one location to another. While material handling systems are not uncommon in service systems, their main use is in manufacturing systems. Material Handling frequently accounts for the majority of the production activity. On the average 50% of companies' operation costs are composed of material material handling costs. Given the impact of material handling on productivity and operation costs, it is crucial that material handling decisions are based on sound principles and practices.
Material handling systems are traditionally classified into one of the following categories :
- Industrial Vehicles
- Automatic Guides Systems
Our simulation software can easily represent them, integrated with manufacturing processes, allowing detailed analysis on determining number of systems resouces, material inventory and systems performance.
Simulation software can help decrease the number of touches by operators and optimize the movement in a material handling system. It can increase picks/day and pick accuracy. Our 3D simulation packages are ideal for simulating material handling environments. The 3D nature of the software helps identify and solve problems within the nuisances of material handling.
