March 13, 2019 – Dematic introduced Dematic iQ Virtual, an emulation and simulation platform, that is used to validate and visualize the operational aspects of automated intralogistics systems for the warehouse. Dematic iQ Virtual allows users to thoroughly explore a proposed system configuration in a virtual environment and gain a true perspective on precisely how the system will perform in actual operation.
Dematic iQ Virtual provides an isolated, digital twin of the production environment where testing of the system occurs. The virtual emulation model uses graphic-rendering technology to portray labor productivity, inventory flow and the efficiency of material handling automation.
A direct connection to Dematic iQ Optimize Warehouse Execution Software (WES) enables the virtual emulation model to verify efficient system operation, confirm functionality of the software integration and determine how the system will perform during a variety of operating conditions. Dematic iQ Virtual is designed for evaluating various “what if” scenarios to determine impact on system performance. This evaluation process drives engineering improvements to system design. The emulation modeling software is used to evaluate the designs of both production and distribution intralogistics systems.
