The logistics simulation simPEL was developed 2009 – 2011 within the project simKMU in cooperation with the Fraunhofer IPA. We created a simulation of small flow productions as they are common in small and medium-sized companies. Central features were layout planning and exploring ideal dimensions for buffers.
In difference to the existing large-scale solutions like Plant Simulation or Process Designer simPEL addresses users with little previous knowledge and smaller time budget, e.g. production planners in small and medium-sized companies. For this reason simPEL is far less complex than these applications both in modeling and in handling.
