The present work presents a modular, object-oriented and agent-based simulation model of a large warehouse for paper products. It integrates the well-known Ultra High Frequency Radio Frequency Identification (UHF RFID) technology to transform a simulation model into an interactive digital twin that receives data from the sensors and optimises routes and space allocation while trying to reduce the travelled distance, the handling and the potential congestion within the aisles. The system performs experiments and provides the operators with the optimised routes for the next 30 minutes, allowing to improve the management of the system.

Abstract

The present work presents a modular, object-oriented and agent-based simulation model of a large warehouse for paper products. It integrates the well-known Ultra High Frequency Radio Frequency Identification (UHF RFID) technology to transform a simulation model into an interactive digital twin that receives data from the sensors and optimises routes and space allocation while trying to reduce the travelled distance, the handling and the potential congestion within the aisles. The system performs experiments and provides the operators with the optimised routes for the next 30 minutes, allowing to improve the management of the system.
