Digital Twin Warehouse

Warehouse Digital Twin using Simcad Pro Digital Twin represents a virtual replica of the live warehouse operation including racking, picking, automation, staging, receiving, put-away and replenishment. The Digital Twin contains all of the constraints of the actual warehouse, and behaves similarly to the live operation.


A Data-Driven Warehouse Digital Twin takes the implementation to the next level by allowing the Digital Twin to load actual data sets from the WMS/WES/SAP and perform predictive analytics on the warehouse operation. A Data-Driven Digital Twin enables you to analyze historical performance, improve current operation and better plan for expansion and future operations.


Benefits of Data-Driven Digital Twin for Warehouse

  • Increase Warehouse Efficiency
  • Conveyance Design and Optimization
  • Material Handling Optimization and Fleet Sizing
  • ASRS, AGV and STV Capacity Planning
  • Facility Layout & Design
  • Distribution Center Network Analysis
  • Congestion Analysis and Reduction
  • Automation Validation and Design
  • Human and Automated Equipment Interaction
  • Capacity Planning & Scheduling



With Simcad Pro®, and Digital Twin Studio®, you can model, simulate and analyze a section of the factory or the complete factory digital twin from receiving to shipping. Using a patented multi-threaded simulation engine, Simcad Pro® Digital Twin is the tool you need for modeling, simulation and optimization of your facility.


Digital Twin Warehouse provides

  • Real time tracking in 2D, 3D and VR (Digital Twin Shadow).
  • Live analytics, dashboarding, alerts and optimization.
  • Direct connectivity to WMS / WCS / SAP systems.
  • Built in features to model, analyze and optimize all aspects of the warehouse including picking, storage media and slotting.
  • Fully interactive, no coding interface for quick model building and validation.
  • Accurate digital twin modeling with 99.9% accuracy.
  • Built in Value Stream mapping and lean analysis.


Digital Twin ROI

  • Eliminate multiple staging areas, Reduce the time to receive and rack incoming inventory
  • Improved replenishment schedules to eliminate “wait” on the pick line. Reduce delays in the checking area
  • Identify required labor requirements and analyze the potential benefits to existing automation technology
  • Test and validate automation investments
  • Identify, analyze, and mitigate the constraints imposed by potential slotting strategies
  • Impact on the physical facility: Expand and change the layout or optimize the layout of a new facility

Heat Map & Congestion Analysis

  • Import locations, SKUs, and constraints
  • Applies to new and existing warehouses
  • Slot based on velocity, congestion, weight, dimensions and more
  • Prioritize your location by strike zones, preferred pick locations, and elevation constraints
  • Organize by product type, category or manufacturer
  • Generate optimized Re-slotting movement sequences and Work Instructions
