Logistics and Material Flow Simulation
Use the power of discrete event simulation for production throughput analysis and improve system performance
Producing and selling more products does not lead to more profit if you cannot extract maximum production efficiency from your manufacturing operations. Building products with inefficient manufacturing operations and capacity utilization can quickly erode your bottom line. Numerous factors affect the operational efficiency and throughput of manufacturing operations, and they are difficult to manage. These factors include:
- Determining the optimal configuration for new production systems
- Establishing proper levels of work-in-process inventory
- Setting appropriate production schedules
- Establishing the correct production throughput-to-resource utilization ratio
With Tecnomatix logistics and material flow simulation, you can use discrete event simulation and statistical analysis capabilities to optimize material handling, logistics, machine utilization, and labor requirements. Using stochastic tools with object-oriented and 3D modeling capabilities, you can increase your manufacturing accuracy and efficiency while improving throughput and overall system performance.
Tecnomatix Plant Simulation allow you to model, simulate, explore and optimize logistics systems and their processes. These models enable analysis of material flow, resource utilization and logistics for all levels of manufacturing planning from global production facilities to local plants and specific lines, well in advance of production execution.

Tecnomatix FactoryFLOW is a graphical material handling system that allows you to optimize a factory layout based on material flow distances, frequency and cost. This is accomplished by evaluating and analyzing part routing information, material storage needs, material handling equipment specifications and part packaging (containerization) information against the factory layout.
