Distribution Center Network:

With Simcad Pro's ability to dynamically interact with external data, companies have successfully implemented simulation to analyze the location of warehouses and distribution centers with respect to demand. Product allocation is no longer a guessing game, but a simulated science that simplifies one of the most complex problems in this industry.

Simulation Software for Warehouse

Using Simcad Pro Warehouse Simulation Software, companies proactively optimize their distribution centers by improving picking, receiving, slotting, put away and replenishment. Moreover, by optimizing picking schedules, man power and equipment optimization can be achieved.

Warehouse simulation can also help in analyzing the impact of future growth on the warehouse and help in identifying potential capacity constraints. What-if analysis can be used to determine potential impact of new flows and equipment on the operation.

Another key aspect that impacts warehouse efficiency is congestion at different location within the environment. Congestion analysis for incoming/outgoing trucks, internal pick sequences, and replenishment schedules can be simulated and optimized to improve efficiency and reduce overall cost of the operation.

Real-Time Predictive Analytics and Tracking

SimTrack is a dynamic 3D visibility and analysis tool that utilizes Simcad Pro's patented technology to provide real-time operational visibility, dynamic replay, proactive forecasting, and customization reports.

Alerts and Notifications

The user-defined proactive analysis environment allows for identifying problems before they occur and alerting appropriate personnel to take corrective action before they impact the throughput of the operation.


Remote Monitoring

Dynamic Forecasting & Analysis
SimTrack enables multiple remote views of the operation. In addition, a web based interface is provided for data monitoring and reporting.


Dynamic Replay with Analysis

Dynamic Forecasting & Analysis
Replay the tracked data just like a DVR. Rewind the clock and view the activities as they occurred. Switch SimTrack Health to simulation mode and use the replay feature to optimize and improve the flow using the integrated Simcad Process Simulator.

Real-Time Visibility

View tracked items in realtime in 2D or 3D. Hover over an item to display a quick summary, or click the item to display detailed tracking information and properties.


Dynamic Forecasting & Analysis

Dynamic Forecasting & Analysis
Accurately predict the future of the operation using live data feeds, Dynamic Simulation®, and historical trends. Display the forecasted state on web enabled dashboards for increased visibility.


Dynamic Schedule Adherence

Dynamic Schedule Adherence
Dynamically forecast completion time per order, part, and sub-assembly. Based on current constraints and downtime, SimTrack automatically reschedules the flow to minimize lead time, improve on-time delivery, and optimize efficiency.
