Thanks to simulation tools, we work in a setting that allows us to analyze warehouse dynamics under different conditions or different operating circumstances.
Simulation prior to implementation is necessary but not indispensable. That is to say, it is highly recommendable. It will serve to find out with great accuracy the necessary movements of material, time, resources, etc. Even if currently the facility is running correctly, the interesting thing is that it does so according to the growth forecast. At automated warehouses it is now very recommendable that when designing a facility made up of automated elements, applying simulation techniques facilitate the project’s launch, the evaluation of options, the prediction of the system’s behavior or a comparison of performance depending on different options.
Moreover, through simulation it is possible to analyze whether there are bottlenecks in the warehouse.
