Simulatiemodel magazijn. Implementatie in Borland Pascal en Must.
Report 95.3.LT.4477, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
Simulation is very useful in the process of decision making for the new
layout of a warehouse. A warehouse simulation implemented in Taylor II
(version 2.20) showed that the used version of this pakkage does not offer
sufficient possibilities to flexibly simulate any warehouse configuration
and investigate the impact on the performance of interaction between
vehicles. The question arises whether or not this is possible using Borland
Pascal and Must.
A modelof a warehouse is described. Interaction between vehicles while
driving is included. The resulting simulation program provides the folowing
performance indicators for evaluation of different layouts:
The model has been built according to the process description method. It has
been implemented in object oriented Borland Pascal and Must. This study
shows that Borland Pascal and Must do not suffer from the constraints of
Taylor II. Unfortunately, Must and Borland Pascal do not combine this with
an advanced and easy to build animation, the strong feature of Taylor II.
- number of vehicles needed for intemal transport
- occupancy of these vehicles
- percentage of empty driving
- per product stored the time between moment of generation and moment of
completion of the order
- the number of orders waiting to be executed
