SMS worked collaboratively with CSR Hebel to simulate their proposed new manufacturing facility. The resulting Arena simulation software clearly demonstrated that the proposed design could not meet production requirements.
Simulation modelling of coal stockpiling and logistics for BHP
SMS developed a simulation model of a complex raw coal transportation system to address bottlenecks and inadequate storage. Relatively minor infrastructure upgrades were recommended, avoiding anticipated new stockpiles or other major investment. The model was then available for ongoing use, to support decision making for other proposed projects and upgrades.
