Planning and execution security

Regardless of whether the system is a small or large project, simulation and emulation tools are recommended to secure the planning or test scenarios.

In order to check the turnover performance and the effects of different storage strategies in advance, we simulate your logistics system in an animated 3D model. Technical processes can then be easily analyzed and optimized. This allows improvements to be recognized and taken into account before the project starts.

A planning simulation has the advantage that you can already see your future system in full operation in moving pictures and check it before going live.

A detailed and functional replica of the logistics system with all drive and technology details, which goes beyond the simulation, is called an emulation. This model is designed so precisely that the coupling between SAP EWM/LES and the PLC controls – like the later system – can be comprehensively tested.

As part of the project work, IGZ offers suitable tools for every purpose:

  •      planning simulation
  •      PLC/plant emulation for SAP EWM/LES
  •      SAP SCE emulation

These simulation/emulation tools improve the planning results and reduce the costly and time-consuming introduction phase between SAP PLC and mechanics many times over.
