Net Solver: cut times! Optimal dispatching in automatic warehouse!
NET SOLVER RTD - Optimal load dispatching
What problems does Net Solver – RTD solve?

Internal logistics handling system dimensioning.

Quantify the impact of your choices on routing strategies.

Spot the right number of vehicles you really need to perform your delivery tasks.

Spot the optimal task schedule.

Quantify the impact of task execution time-span variability on the whole system.

Whether you need to address logistics operations carried out within the factory or in external loading areas, ACT Operations Research Net Solver helps with their scheduling and dynamic assignment to handling units while executing faster and real-time orders and exploiting these at their fullest. This robust technology has been thought to deal with constant disturbances of logistics process such as devices break-down, congestions and arrests coming out within factory's handling areas. Net Solver is a powerful optimizer built on innovative algorithms providing a really high accuracy level. Capable to work in synch with field devices it interfaces well with other systems (e.g., PLC -programmable logic controllers, WMS).

Usage model
Working amid dynamic constraints and priorities, ACT Operations Research Net Solver spots the best operational sequence to be performed by handling units (e.g., AGV, shuttles, traslo, operators). Tasks/operations lists and scheduling are dynamically updated by following process evolution including e.g., new tasks, failures, traffic, delays. Used whithin warehouses and factories of complex processes, Net Solver performs dynamic real time scheduling of operations such as stocking, lay downs, picking and provisions from work centers. Net Solver is capable to manage handling operations in loading areas such as ports and airports for e.g., containers loading/unloading. Net Solver can be coupled with ARENA and SIMIO simulation software to weigh in transport demand, routing choices, vehicles numbers, execution time dynamics and their impact on the whole factory.


Main functionalities


  • higher handling units and operators deployment
  • faster tasks/operations lists execution
  • sequencing transportation tasks priorities
  • optimizing warehouse pick&drop operations (e.g. in automated warehouses)
  • working with few transport units
  • optimizing handling operations in loading areas (e.g., containers handling in hubs, intermodal and logistics centres)
  • optimizing automatic devices operations and factory handling workforce.


  • loading/loading time ranges
  • execution time range per transportation task (e.g., waiting time per order execution)
  • dynamic priorities in execution (e.g., thresholds based tasks)
  • the whole logistics constraints (e.g., vehicles capacity, direction, limited trafic areas)
  • traffic congestion
  • electric devices battery charging.


  • integrate to field and optimization systems in real-time
  • on-line tasks' updates and re-scheduling.


Main features and add-on components

  • integrate with simulation systems to weigh in stochastic variables.


Vertical markets

  • Transportation and logistics (e.g., handling, warehouse, ports, airports, interports)


ACT Operations Research technology integration and scalability

  • developed through Java technology
  • integrates with any SQL database compliant
  • integrates with ERP, TMS, WMS
  • a very powerful engine designed for parallel calculus
  • scalable for a number of CPUs.
