Port of Miami
Developed an assembly line simulation model with flexible Excel user interface and Arena / Siman discrete event simulation model. The flexibility and ease of use of the simulation interface allowed Yorozu Automotive to model all of their assembly lines with a single simulation consulting engagement. The simulation model was used to not only assign work to existing lines as demand fluctuated, but to also plan equipment and space requirements of future assembly lines.
Developed a simulation model of vessel unloading and over the road (OTR) traffic at the port. The objective was to aid the Port of Miami in determining the appropriate number of rubber gantry cranes (RTG) for current volumes and future growth. The model effort also evaluated gate capability with varying levels of OTR demand. An Excel user interface and Arena / Siman discrete event simulation model was used.
Phoenix Rental Car Center
Developed and utilized an AnyLogic simulation model to determine the best layout of various proposed layouts. The model analysis showed that operational changes would have a bigger impact on system performance, thus saving the rental car center from making a major capital investment that would disrupt passenger flow during construction.
ES3 – Comprehensive Model
Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines
Participated in developing AutoMod simulation model of door to door activity in one of the world’s largest wholesale grocery distribution center. This included modeling of trailer arrival, trailer unloading, conveyor induction, crane put away and get operations, trailer loading, and trailer departure. This model was used to quantify the impacts of various improvement options being considered. The model was also used to quantify the true capacity of the system, so that upper management could begin to plan for the sales point when the system would no longer be able to keep up.
Cruise ship companies pride themselves in the dining experience. At the same time, if any galley has too much equipment that may mean fewer passenger cabins, and less revenue for the vessel. During this project, we developed an AnyLogic simulation model of all the proposed galleys on a new generation of cruise ships. Conducted model analysis with project demand data to determine the appropriate type and number of each piece of equipment in each galley.
American Red Cross
Developed multiple simulation and spreadsheet models to improve the blood supply chain. Models included mobile drive setups, call center queuing models, National Testing Laboratory (NTL) instrument model, and business process models.
