of entire factories and industrial plants
LogABS is 3D simulation software dedicated to the design and redesign of factory intralogistics. It is a tool supporting the creation and modification of the factory layout (spatial layout) and automating the process of designing and implementing logistic trains based on the Lean concept. The application uses built-in mechanisms of added value analysis, Yamazumi and PFEP (Plan For Every Part) analysis. Due to the fact that he uses the language of a production engineer, it greatly simplifies and accelerates factory modeling. The use of LogABS to support decisions by analyzing many design options helps to significantly reduce the costs of ongoing processes and planned implementations.
WHAT DOES THE LOGABS
DESIGNING AND REDESIGNING (IMPROVING) INTRALOGISTICS PROCESSES (MILK RUN)
PRODUCTION LINE BALANCING
WORK ERGONOMIC ANALYSIS (EMPLOYEES’ WORK LOAD)
Effectiveness of LogABS System
use of a database system integrated by PFEP
interactive layout – it gives the ability to change position of a production line, manufacturing cell on the layout of the factory with preservation all designed and implemented movements and positions inside the line, cell
building technological path allowing Lean analysis (VA and Yamazumi) enabling continuous improvement
automatic generation of sectors and routes of logistics trains
automatic generation of train paths and train operators
automatic generation of charts presenting the results of simulation experiments
drastic reduction in modeling time
ease of modeling of switchovers
Why flexsim graphics engine?
Because of 3D Visuals – Captivating Realism. Intralogistics Simulation should be just as capable of being visually compelling as it is analytically compelling. FlexSim GP fully 3D visuals, using the latest OpenGL graphics, allow us to see exactly what’s going on in the model as its running.
It’s much easier to compare results when we can visually see what’s happening to our simulated intralogistics system.
The 3D visuals also create opportunities for communication and teamwork among production engeneerings, logistics specialists, planners, Lean specialists, specialists process improvement, designers production systems and intralogistics
A simulation with accurate 3D models of the operators, workstations, production lines/cells equipment, and furniture found in your healthcare facility is far more compelling than a simple chart. And when you combine the power of FlexSim HC with your favorite spreadsheet or database programs, anything is possible!
„LogABS was created to support production engineers, logistics specialists, planners, Lean specialists, specialists process improvement, designers production systems and intralogistics. These people are interested in solving problems, not necessarily conquering skills in building simulation models. They confirm in interviews also that a critical factor is for them time. Potentially high time consumption preparation of the simulation model is an important premise for them to take decision to use technology or not simulation. Therefore, building models in a simple and short time is an important factor. Opposite this LogABS application is challenging.”
