OPTIMIZATION OF SEMI AUTOMATED PICKING STATIONS
Use of a simulation model to validate the design of a new material
handling system regarding orders
Study of different ways of preparing orders. Tool to support daily operative to choose the best resources configuration. Justification of the investment.
Working side by side with the client and system supplier, the development of the model was fast and succesful as it was being built and validated simultaneously. Therefore, once the 3D environment was created, all the logic were defined: ASRS ́s, transporters, conveyors routing, orders preparation and picking, etc.
Analysis & Results
How to verify the design of a new warehousing system? How to analyze and justify the investment?
