With intimate knowledge of the warehouse design we utilize the most sophisticated tools in the industry to develop “time-based” simulation models of the picking process. Our simulation models provide the most detailed empirical data available as to the value of the recommended solution.
Most engineering analyses utilize spreadsheet models to calculate expected productivity levels. This approach compares a dynamic workload to a static condition. Our simulation capability provides a comparison of the dynamic workload to a dynamic condition. This process allows PDC to calculate downtime associated with congestion, empty pick locations and lack of available work. The simulation modeling process also allows PDC to accurately assess the optimal staffing levels.
