Implementation of Calculation for Simulation of Milk-run Intralogistics System
Designing and modeling milk-run intralogistics systems create many aspects which have to be considered. Determining the appropriate number of trains together with defining the right parts for transport in trains and the definition of routes for them is often a big challenge for the designer. Next challenge is validation of designed system (number of trains, routes, and choosing right trailer for defined parts). For validation useful can be simulation model. In this chapter, authors present one step of methodology of designing milk-run intralogistics systems. They describe how to implement the calculation results about number of trains, trailers, and routes into the simulation model.
