  7. 7. Why this library?  The logistic market is a growing market, while the manufacturing market is decreasing.  More and more people discover the benefit of simulation, but they lack programming skills.  Plant Simulation has the best simulation engine, but historically has a manufacturing focus.  Logistic simulations should be done with less efforts and time compared to manufacturing. © cards© cards PLM Solutions 2009.

  8. 8. Market positioning 1. Logistic Service Providers  Warehousing and transport 2. Logistic Equipment Suppliers  Systems engineering for material handling and warehouse equipment 3. Logistic Consulting Houses 4. Manufacturing Plants with own warehouse facilities © cards© cards PLM Solutions 2009. All rights reserved. PLM Solutions 2009. All rights reserved. 8
  9. 9. Typical pains for Logistics Service Providers  Customer contracts are getting shorter. For each new customer a fast “first-time-right” ramp-up is needed.  Large customer base and product mix within one warehouse makes optimization difficult.  Need for dynamic design and analysis tools.  Difficult to convince new potential customers during tenders. No visualization available.  Difficult to optimize WMS systems since the customer-set is changing rapidly. Large costs are involved. © cards© cards PLM Solutions 2009. All rights reserved.

  10. 10. Market challenges  Logistics has become more than just “shoving boxes”  Typical logistic design issues can only be answered by simulation:  Capacity requirements?  Site and warehouse layout: size, width, depth, aisles?  Storage: ABC, Zones, dedicated, random, etc.?  Order picking: batching, routing, sorting, consolidation, etc.?  Effects of automation: robots, AGVs, AS/RS, carrousels, etc.?  Planning and control: schedules, order release, etc.?  Inventory management: order policies, cycle-counting, etc.?  Value Added Logistics? © cards© cards PLM Solutions 2009.
