Warehouse Automation Simulation

Discover how Commonwealth’s simulations can unlock your distribution center’s optimal performance.

Our simulation services allow you to see the design at work.

The synchronization of material handling system design, warehouse management software rules and human methods in the distribution center is what sets top-performing facilities apart from their average counterparts.

All too often, companies spend big budgets on designing a new distribution center or improving an existing one, only to discover costly inefficiencies after going live. Simulation provides a 360-degree view of how the various processes, systems, and equipment can best work together to drive greater levels of efficiency, accuracy and speed.

Whether it’s risk mitigation, unlocking higher levels of efficiency, or troubleshooting, simulation provides a cutting-edge view into the intricacies of the distribution center.
