Flexsim is a 3D simulation software program used to model filling, packaging, labeling, palletizing and other manufacturing, material handling, and supply chain flow processes. Flexsim allows the end-user to build models and present “what if” conditions to the model in an effort to optimize a system, where “optimize” is generally defined as producing (picking, servicing, etc.) more products per unit of time and at lower cost. Flexsim allows the end-user to test ideas and prove their value prior to implementing them in the actual system. Flexsim also allows the end-user to communicate the model’s results through 3D animation, reports, and graphs to both technical and non-technical audiences.
