Using AnyLogic software for Supply Chain & Logistic to model basic warehouse operations for material handling analysis and optimization. The intended operations model similar to distribution center (discrete event) which involve three (3) main processes;
The expected result shall determine time taken for each process based on multiple scenarios (variable parameter) and to identify possible bottleneck/limitation on each scenario/process/parameter.
Objective of Simulation:
1) To analyse total time taken (min, max, average) for each process;
2) To capture waiting time for material on queue (each pallet at temporary storage area) between unloading to loading process (min, max, average);
3) To adjust the parameter (i.e. no. of truck, no. of pallet, no. of forklift) for multiple scenarios in order to identify the optimum setup for all processes.
Other details will be shared later and the simulation must be completed in 1 week time.
