Warehouse simulation Software

Create a digital twin of the warehouse and optimize efficiencies, picking, replenishment, slotting and storage media. Use Simcad Pro to design a new warehouse, optimize an existing one, or plan for automation and capacity forecast. Connect Simcad Pro warehouse simulator to existing WMS systems to perform continuous analysis of picking strategies, man power requirements and wave release schedules. Moreover, Simcad Pro enables you to analyze and validate automation rollout, AGV/STV implementation, and ASRS capacity and capabilities.

Storage Density and
Slotting Optimization

Warehouse simulation can also help in analyzing the impact of future growth on the warehouse and help in identifying potential capacity constraints. Warehouse optimization is easily controlled and 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.

Distribution Center Optimization

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.

This case study presents an improved method to optimize the warehouse using an actual outbound dataset that takes into consideration seasonality, SKU slotting, rack types, and pick path. Moreover, the generated simulation model is used for slotting analysis and optimization.

Tracking and forecasting management within a supply chain often focuses on very complex operations that monitor all processes including: inventory, packaging, picking, replenishment, put-away, shipping and routing operations. Because there are so many different components ...
