Material Handling Simulation by Talumis

TALUMIS has extensive experience in analyzing automated handling systems. The main benefits in analyzing material handling systems using simulation can be found in a reduction in investment- and operational costs. The emphasis in analyzing and improving material handling systems is on the overall (hardware) design of the systems and on details of (PLC-) control rules.

It is very important to analyze various different scenarios and to use a dynamic stochastic approach to reveal all hidden bottlenecks. As systems and interactions become more complex, material handling systems can only be analyzed successfully by using simulation.

Material handling simulation: Why?

The need for efficiency in industry has never been greater, with personnel, fuel, transportation and material costs continuing to rise each year. Material Handling Simulation provides a way to put a process to the test in a risk-free environment, helping to avoid costly mistakes through observation and analysis. It also enables users to determine minimum storage costs without sacrificing the required output.

In more recent projects the benefits of operational use of material handling simulation has also been demonstrated. For instance in sorting and picking systems, it is possible to use simulation as a planning tool to determine where and (more importantly) when people and product are needed.

An important feature of simulating automated handling system is the visualization. The systems can be represented attractively and accurately in a 3D environment. In this way it is possible to walk through the future installations. This enables you to validate and create insight into the system for people involved. It also allows you to educate and train people in how the system will function.

Typical Questions that can be answered

  • Is the design of my system optimal?
  • Where are the bottlenecks and how could these be improved?
  • What are the best control rules in order to maximize output?
  • How would the system function in other future scenarios?
  • How does the system function when integrating within our other processes and systems?

Talumis uses the best simulation software: FlexSim

FlexSim is powerful yet easy-to-use software for simulation. A comprehensive and innovative simulation engine is hidden behind drag and drop controls, drop-down lists and many other intuitive features that make it accessible for anyone to experiment with a model. All simulation models are created to scale and are presented using 3D visuals, making it easy to watch the virtual system go through its daily operations and visually observe which elements are lacking in efficiency. FlexSim also gives decision makers the tools to confirm their observations, with impressive statistical reporting and analysis built right into the software.
