Ghafari’s Industrial Engineering Team Produces New Sortation Line Simulation
Dearborn, MI - Ghafari’s industrial engineering team recently produced a simulation for a food processing client using FlexSim’s discrete event simulation software. Facing a compressed schedule, we were able to quickly illustrate and evaluate the planned sortation line process for the client’s warehouse and gather valuable throughput and utilization data.
Using FlexSim, we stress-tested our client’s system to its maximum capacity in order to validate throughput and identify opportunities for process enhancement. Experimenting with system inputs, we were able to pinpoint potential bottlenecks as well as uncover ways of optimizing throughput.
FlexSim posted our simulation as a video case study that demonstrates their program’s sortation line analysis capabilities. Check it out here.
