Simulation based design of an electrified monorail system with high throughput and short delivery
Presenter: Dr. Monika Schneider, Expert in Intralogistics Simulation at Eisenmann Anlagenbau GmbH & Co. KG, Boeblingen.
The presentation tells the story of a design project at the conveyor systems department of Eisenmann. During several steps, the simulation model of an intralogistics system has been built up and modified to make sure, that the installation will meet all performance requirements. The way of modelling the electrified monorail system in a semi-automated way will be shown during the presentation.
Logistic center with High Bay Warehouse (HBW) and pallet conveyor system
Main material flow
Challenges during design phase
Layout and material flow of request for quotation
Layout of HBW zone:
Semi-automatic model generation in Plant Simulation:
First question to simulation: Is the monorail layout capable to handle the material flow?
Evaluation of the simulation runs:
Goal: Save second floor level of pallet conveyors
