Warehouse optimization and simulation
  Time, space, costs and service level are among the variables a distribution center can be analyzed. Spotting relevant drivers and leveraging on the right levers is paramount for decision makers.

Combining optimization and simulation models is the right mix to support decisions to be taken in distributions centers.


ACT Operations Research for warehouse


A virtual image of warehouse and internal logistics process provides you with a number of benefits:

  • validation and ranking of organizational choices, performance, costs and risks
  • ranking different layouts and alternative logistics solutions (e.g., high-level picking, kitting)
  • performance measurement of automatic handling systems
  • key parameters identification to implement the best strategies with third parties and suppliers
  • transit point process management simulation
  • workforce scheduling (e.g. forecasting staffing needs, matching organizational demand with workforce)
  • port quays and exit doors traffic forecasting
  • optimal shelf dimensioning (e.g., number, height).

Dynamic optimization

  • optimal positioning of pallets in stock (e.g., travelling time, letdown, wasted space, capacity)
  • optimal positioning of pallets on picking (e.g., travelling time, scheduling per picking frequency, cube and weight index)
  • dynamic optimization of picking display (e.g., automated positioning of incoming items, out-of-stock management, dynamic control of productivity and of service level agreements)
  • dynamic scheduling and optimization, picking list creation
  • dispatching optimization of automated vehicles (e.g., AGV, Traslo Device, shuttle).


Why to choose ACT Operations Research

New technologies bring huge opportunities. When it comes to complexity especially within the logistics domain, innovative techniques are paramount.
