In order to improve the efficiency of storage handling process, put forward the analytical method based on combining the Petri net modeling and Flexsim simulation. Firstly, the method uses Petri net for modeling to find problems in the process. Secondly, it uses Flexsim for entity simulation to make the system bottleneck clear at a glance. Finally, it achieves the purpose of optimization system through the modification of system parameters. The simulation results show that the method can find the system bottleneck more easily compared with the traditional method, with a visual effect, and can accurately reflect the handling process condition.
