ShuttleDos - 1

Flexible analysis of ShuttleDOS systems Graphic 3D simulation provide an insight into the system Dynamic system characteristics made transparent Future experiences applied today Flexible analysis An actual plant equipped with AZO ShuttleDos systems requires complex analysis during the design phase to verify the specified output ratings. An obvious solution is to accompany plant design with simulation. The versatile configurability of the simulation model makes it possible to respond flexibly to changes. For instance, it is possible to modify the number of shuttle units, travel ranges, types of screw, recipe data etc. and then immediately observe the effects on the simulation model. Graphic 3D model of the dynamic plant characteristics The graphic 3D visualisation of the simulation model sheds light on the often unclear dynamic characteristics of the overall system. Orders and recipes specified by the customer in advance are stored in the system to provide an initial visual impression of the future operational blueprint and characteristics of the plant. In addition to making any bottlenecks clearly apparent this procedure also effectively pinpoints unutilised parts of the plant. Experimenting with the number of shuttle units or changing the recipe sequence is also made immediately visible in the plant dynamics. Simulation with the FlexSim modelling tool • Discrete event-oriented • Object oriented • Configurable • Programmable • Import of 3D objects (e.g. 3D-Studio Max) • Open interface standards Future experiences Forecasts relating to achievable plant output, utilisation capacities, statistical evaluations, material provision recommendations, necessary plant equipment (number of mixers, number of shuttle unit, etc.) no longer need to be assumed but rather they can be considered as fact within the framework of the applied model accuracy. This guarantees complete confidence in the plant from the very outset. The simulation results make it possible to make decisions in terms of design measures, optimisation, saving options etc. in advance. Benefits for the customer By observing the simulation model, the customer can experience the future, as even in the planning stage he can see how his orders and recipes will materialise. The simulation model can already answer a host of questions. The dynamic 3D model provides clear understanding of the plant behaviour such as in the initial startup period and during regular production, changes to recipes, as well as in specifically selected best-case and worst-case scenarios.

ShuttleDos - 2

Model parameterisation A database provides the operating parameters of the simulation model. This makes it possible to easily manage customer-specific order and recipe data as well as the components required for this purpose. These data are just as decisive in terms of the time characteristics and the simulation sequence as the screw, scales and silo master data. The layout of the plant, i.e. the number and geometric arrangement of the metering points, the number and travel range of the shuttles, the number and arrangement of the scales as well as other layout parameters are defined by an...
