The working method can be divided in certain steps.
Define an idea of a system that you want to test.
Storage systems,equipment,building,materials flow...
Look in the "How to.." section to get ideas in designing efficient systems
Setup a new project.Set identities.Define drawing size.
Create a layout.Make the building.Create storage system and working areas.
Add handling equipment.
Create administrative areas.
With administrativ areas you control how to place items (frequency placing),
sorting order for picking ...
Create the materials flow through the system.
There are 3 methods. Testcycles,order generators contolled by order structures and
reading from external files (could be on-line from a real system).
Setup reports.The reports gives information as summaries or in detail about what takes place in the system.
You can also setup benchmark reports to compare different simulations.
Simulate!Simulation can be shown i 2D or 3D.You can "sit on" a truck in 3D and see your sytsem from a
truck drivers view point!
Print the report.
Analyse the report output to find out weak points to improve.
If all seems OK , no more actions else change system parameters and repeat.
Look in the "How to.." section to get ideas how to analyse the reports.
You have now build the project in virtual reality,the last step is to realize the project in the real reality.
