Entwicklung einer Simulationsmethodik zur schnellen Dimensionierung komplexer Materialflusssysteme
Simulation models play an important role in the planning and development in intralogistics. Especially the layout and dimensioning of order picking processes, warehouses and handling engineering is often based on static estimations and rules of thumb. This leads to inferior planning results, because dynamic effects, such as peaks of orders, and sequential process steps are often neglected. The most common solution at the moment are event discrete simulation models, which create a significant workload for planning departments in logistical companies. Therefore, this article presents a concept for a progressive simulation method. This new approach enables the consideration of dynamic effects without an increase of workload. This contribution depicts the underlying requirements, the resulting theoretical concept and the implementation approach of the new progressive simulation methodology.
