Logistics & Material Flow Simulation

Use the power of discrete event simulation for production throughput analysis and improve system performance

Producing and selling more products does not lead to more profit if you cannot extract maximum production efficiency from your manufacturing operations. Building products with inefficient manufacturing operations and capacity utilization can quickly erode your bottom line. Numerous factors affect the operational efficiency and throughput of manufacturing operations, and they are difficult to manage. These factors include:

  • Determining the optimal configuration for new production systems
  • Establishing proper levels of work-in-process inventory
  • Setting appropriate production schedules
  • Establishing the correct production throughput-to-resource utilization ratio

With Tecnomatix logistics and material flow simulation, you can use discrete event simulation and statistical analysis capabilities to optimize material handling, logistics, machine utilization, and labor requirements. Using stochastic tools with object-oriented and 3D modeling capabilities, you can increase your manufacturing accuracy and efficiency while improving throughput and overall system performance.
