Dematic has introduced iQ Virtual, a new emulation and simulation platform, that is used to validate and visualize operational aspects of automated systems for the warehouse.

Dematic iQ Virtual allows users to thoroughly explore a proposed system configuration in a virtual environment and gain a true perspective on precisely how the system will perform in actual operation.

The virtual emulation model uses graphic-rendering technology to accurately portray labour productivity, inventory flow and the efficiency of material handling automation.

A direct connection to Dematic iQ Optimize Warehouse Execution Software (WES) enables the model to verify efficient system operation, confirm functionality of the software integration and determine how the system will perform during a variety of operating conditions.

Dematic iQ Virtual can evaluate various “what if” scenarios to determine impact on system performance. This evaluation process drives engineering improvements to system design. The emulation modeling software is used to evaluate the designs of both production and distribution intralogistics systems.
