3D digital twin

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Tecsys Inc. launched a Digital Twin 3D Heat Map, at Promat 2023 today.

The company calls it a “no-code” solution, saying it automatically maps warehouse data to a 3D representation of the warehouse floor and let customers track pick and replenishment operations by navigating the warehouse on their PC or mobile device.

Tecsys says the twin lets WMS users visualize warehouse data and identify areas of high interactivity where there are opportunities to improve workflows and throughput.

“We are very excited to launch our Digital Twin 3D Heat Map solution, which is a game changer for warehouse operations,” said Chris McPherson, director of analytics at Tecsys.

“This is an adaptable and interactive solution that provides our customers critical insights and the ability to track key performance metrics. It empowers them to make informed decisions to drive efficiencies in labour and operations.”

The Digital Twin 3D Heat Map solution is backward compatible with multiple versions of the company’s Elite WMS product. The digital twin representation can be generated automatically data in the system, a process that usually requires manual input and mapping.

By delivering a compatible and visually intuitive tool, Tecsys is making digital twins available to any warehouse operator. “This is the way we make digital twins in the warehouse accessible and mainstream,” explained Vito Calabretta, senior vice-president of global operations.

“Traditional solutions that provide this degree of twinning require massive amounts of custom work by professional service providers. We turned that model upside down so that every organization can tap into the performance benefits of digital twin analytics in the warehouse.
