Complexity and dynamic processese in distribution logistics
Modern logistics processes are characterised by their high dynamism and complexity. For instance, in the design process of an optimal transport and conveying system, sequencing and consolidation strategies also need to be taken into account. Therefore, simulation tools and methods are increasingly used in various planning phases of a logistics project.
Application areas for simulation range from feasibility studies very early in the planning process to Support during rough and detailed planning as well as in the realization and commissioning phase of the logistics system.Particularly in logistics projects, simulation technology can help to secure performance and decrease commissioning times, because with simulation, the interaction of all essential processes can be evaluated and optimised well ahead of time.
