Case Study



Warehouse optimization


An OEM lifts’ company wanted to optimize the logistic operations in order to absorb the annual growth of its business (4% per year) without extending its warehouse or building a new one.
  • Period : 4 weeks
  • 3D modelling and simulation of the current situation and 2 future scenarios
  • Optimization of layout, stocks, flows and forklift utilization
  • Results analysis, SWOT and recommendation
KPI & Results
  • Reduced Cycle time of picking/Purchase Order: -23%
  • Reduced Forklift distance traveled per picking: -17%
  • Opimal number of picking FTE: -6%
  • Reduced Crossing flows frequency: -38%

3D modelling and simulation of a new factory



The company wanted to simulate the new factory in order to validate the concept (layout, flows, equipment, ressources) before implementing it.

  • Period : 5 months
  • Basic & Detailed design: 3D model of the new factory
  • Simulation of all the activities (supply, production, packaging, palletizing, storage, expedition) and logistics flows (RM, pallets, poducts, AGV, forklifts, operators)
  • Optimization of the initial design
KPI & Results
  • Optimal number of manual and automatic stations
  • Optimization of pallet flow (MP, SF/F products, packaging, etc.) between different areas of production, packaging, buffers and automatic central store
  • Optimal number of resources (operators, AGV, cranes, equipment)
  • Designing the AGV network


Construction of a new hospital


In the context of a new hospital construction to regroup 7 hospitals activities into a new main one and two antennas, the management wanted to build a dynamic simulation model in order to challenge the basic design of: the reception, the admission and emergency activities

  • Input data collection and analysis
  • Refining patient flows
  • 3D modeling
  • Scenario development
  • Dynamic simulations
  • Analysis of results and recommendations
KPI & Results
  • Sizing of 3 zones (according to the zone, validation or modification of the number of boxes / rooms following the analysis)
  • Adaptation of the capacity according to the load (variable according to the hours)
  • Planning tool
  • Communication tool

Flow Optimization of operating theatres


As part of the integration of new oncology and urology activities (+ 28% planned hours), the hospital management wanted to optimize operations’ flows of the 4 existing rooms.

  • Input data collection and analysis
  • Field observations and interviews
  • 3D modeling
  • Dynamic Simulations
  • Analysis of results and recommendations
KPI & Results
  • Opimization of patient flows (entry/exit of operation room)
  • New layout proposition (validated by architechts)
  • Sizing of the recovery room

Compare several propositions of an architectural contest


As part of the construction project of a new building, ProcSim has intervened as a flow expert.

  • Period: 2 months
  • Model the 4 proposals and compare them on the basis of: patient flows, most representative logistic flows, external access, emergency, emergency drop-off
KPI & Results
  • Compare and rank the 4 projects
  • Flow visualization for each proposal
  • Measure lifts’ occupation
  • Detect cross-docking flows (ex: clean and dirty flows)
  • Hospital access and occupation of emergency drop-off
