Sim3D - Throughput Analysis
Manufacturing and warehouse projects generate questions about dimensioning, throughput, and operation. The systems involved are dynamic, with product movements and resource allocation adding complexity into the mix. Sim3D speeds the build process with QuickStart catalog elements and allows you to concentrate on experimentation.

An accurate model provides the clarity to take confident decisions, backed up by numerical results. If different automation technologies are in competition to solve a problem, throughput models can help to settle the debate. Where the response of a system is dependent on the product mix flowing through it, a Sim3D model can be used to explore the system behaviour and understand its operation better.
Determine Layouts, Understand Routes
Overall product flow is studied and developed, and the optimum dimensions of racks, conveyors, and storage areas are determined. Equipment speeds, cycle times, and maintenance schedules are incorporated; breakdown rates and the variability of operator actions are taken into account where necessary. Sim3D models can be as simple or as complex as you require them to be, or as the situation demands.
Let Your Model Reflect The Project State
Sim3D models provide a focus for all those involved in decisions concerning the layout, equipment choice, operation, maintenance, or staffing of the system. The model reflects the current state of development of the system, in terms of layout, operation, and product mix.
The Advantages of Sim3D
Sim3D helps you to analyse system throughput, identify bottlenecks, dimension layouts accurately, and test out different operational modes to increase your understanding of how a system responds to changes. Bring «what if?» scenarios to life and compare results to select the best configuration and functional parameters for your requirements. Sim3D helps you to reduce the risk associated with your project decisions.
