  • Utilization of equipment and operators
  • Time traveling between tasks versus actually “working”
  • Process delays
  • Maximum and average tank and storage inventories
  • Production actually completed in a day or week

What’s the best design?

Traditional design tools don’t reflect food plant realities: varying flow paths and production rates; competition for operators, equipment and storage; personnel bouncing between tasks to keep material moving, and; pathways congested with forklifts and people.

Engineers crave dynamic modeling tools that provide hard data as they strive for the “Best Designs”—and a way to prove it.

Enter SIM4food. Combining visualization with rigorous process modeling, we see trucks arrive at intakes (unevenly), material flowing in and out of silos and storage tanks, orders moving through processing and packaging, and plant personnel shifting among tasks.

Experiment to make your design smarter. Build collective alignment and buy-in for your final design.
