VISUALIZE YOUR WAREHOUSE WITH A DIGITAL TWIN
Imagine walking around in your warehouse without leaving the office, following every movement in real-time 3D. Visualizing bottle-necks and technical problems. And imagine testing new lay-outs and processes, without having to change a thing IRL. Wouldn’t that be cool? With Astro WMS® Digital Twin you can.
BRINGING YOUR WAREHOUSE INTO VIRTUAL REALITY
Technology keeps getting smarter, faster and more complex every day. That means more things can go wrong … and that you have less time to get it right again. That goes for warehouses too.
One way of meeting these challenges is to use a virtual 3D model, a so-called digital twin. The digital twin can be used for visualization, simulation and emulation (test and continuous improvement) throughout the system’s life-cycle, from design and budgeting to operations, support, expanding and retrofitting.

REAL TIME VISUALIZATION WITH ASTRO WMS® DIGITAL TWIN
The concept of 3D modeling is already established in production environments and other types of automated systems. And now we at Consafe Logistics are proud to bring the technology into logistics, with our new add-on module Digital Twin.
Simply put, it gives you the possibility to create a digital copy of your warehouse in 3D. This copy, the digital twin, can then be fed with information from Astro WMS® and provide a real-time visualization of your current warehouse activities.
The visualization can be used for several purposes, such as:
- Overview of warehouse operations
- Evaluate and develop work processes
- Simplifying identification of goods and resources
- Training of new personnel
- Present operations for partners and customers
NEW! SCENARIO-BUILDING MADE EASY
Now, with the latest developments of Astro WMS® Digital Twin, the virtual reality model can also be used to simulate different scenarios or design options in your warehouse, and measure the results based on actual operation data. By changing operation parameters and warehouse lay-out in the digital twin you can evaluate different alternatives and decide on the most effective solution, without spending unnecessary time and money on re-builds and organizational changes. This is useful in situations such as:
• Stress-testing of work processes in challenging situations (e.g. Black Friday)
• Set-up of new 3PL customers
• Adding new product groups
• Warehouse re-design or new-build
