The Ideal Tugger Train System with Intralogistics Software
Plan your tugger routes using sophisticated algorithms
Would you like to plan and optimize your entire material flow – not only your tugger trains, but also resources such as AGVs, forklifts and staff?
Then read about the advantages »material flow planning with ipolog provides!
When are tugger trains useful and worth the investment? Find out with ipolog!
The earliest and latest possible provision times are calculated backwards from the installation location based on real production program data. This ensures that the required material are provided at the right place and at the right time.
You can evaluate with ipolog whether using a tugger train system is advantageous and which resources are needed for the implementation. Simulate different scenarios and recognize temporary peak loads in the planning stage.
Depending on the planning phase (rough, detailed, serial) you can use ipolog to make key statements about the following target values:
Tugger train requirements
Tours per day
Your planning: roughly sketched or detailed
Planning in ipolog offers concrete possibilities for planning and optimizing tugger trains using a 3D model and detailed evaluation. The simulation has the advantage that activities such as loading, driving and unloading and the transports themselves can be traced in a tour Gantt over time.
In the animation and simulation of the tugger trains, they travel through the hall at the correct time in the 3D model on the basis of source-drain relationships. The displayed routes are not only visible in the 3D view. This means that all those involved in the decision-making process can find each other immediately and can discuss the represented situation together. Direct evaluation allows for the identification of specific bottlenecks and to develop and simulate optimal solutions in ipolog.
The density of the traffic volume in the facility can be dynamically displayed at any time in the form of a heat map. The more intense the coloring, the more vehicles are on the same route at that time. This allows for tugger route planning to be evaluated and adjusted if necessary. This immediate feedback accelerates planning and leads to reliable results.
