Today’s logisticians are working in a fast-moving and ever-changing environment. Globalisation leads to increased competition in all markets and companies are driven to minimise the amount of stock held and want to speed up throughput. In short, logistic chains are becoming increasingly complex and the amount of available data is increasing exponentially. Consequently, we are noticing an increasing need for sophisticated data visualisation, analysis, modelling and simulation. Our logistics experts understand that you want to stay ahead of the competition and we will work with you to optimise your logistics processes.
Whether you work in the food industry, heavy industry, chemical industry or port sector, we are well versed in a wide range of logistics challenges. We have in-depth knowledge starting from the complete supply chain down to each and every piece of equipment. Whether we are investigating manufacturing facilities, farm-to-fork or pit-to-port systems, each logistic chain is a delicate balance between optimising equipment utilisation and reducing waiting times. To reach an overall optimum it is crucial to observe the complete logistic chain instead of assessing all components of the chain individually. Our experts are focused on analysing the entire logistic chains, including financial aspects and operational excellence (equipment usage, adding value, reducing operating costs).
Field of Expertise – Logistical Processes
Our current services in traditional markets are:
- Optimisation of operations (planning and production);
- Bottleneck identification and elimination;
- Sensitivity analyses;
- Improving factory design and space calculations;
- Performance measurement and quality improvement;
- Evaluating and setting KPIs;
- Selection of equipment;
- Risk assessment;
- Optimisation of storage and buffer size;
- Determining requirements for handling equipment.
Simulation Tool - FlexSim
FlexSim Simulation software is one of our tools which provide insight into the performance of complete logistic chains and makes it possible to identify bottlenecks and optimise capacities. This makes simulation highly effective for designing new logistic chains and optimising existing ones. Overall, simulation can be regarded as a means to provide more insight in dynamic behaviour of a system which cannot be seen otherwise. This leads to a better understanding of what can be expected in real life.
