Khalifa University of Science, Technology & Research, or KUSTAR is a science-focused university located in Abu Dhabi. Founded in 2007 Khalifa University was established in an effort to support a knowledge-based economy that will contribute to the state’s post-oil future with a current student population of approximately 1300. The Industrial and Systems Engineering faculty acquired Flexsim Healthcare Academic license as the University is preparing to establish a College of Medicine and Health Sciences. The Al Ain-based United Arab Emirates University, which uses Flexsim HealthCare since 2013 at their College for Medicine and Health Sciences. Khalifa University is the 2nd in the country adopting this sophisticated software for hospital planning, optimization of patient flow and maximizing resource utilization.
Together with our Dutch partners Talumis and their special Flexsim module for simulating bulk and liquid goods called FloWorks, we are validating the planned plant upgrade for Al Rawabi Dairy Plant in Al Khawaneej. To meet future demand and seasonal peaks, the current facility will be upgraded by investing several million USD in new equipment, such as tanks, mixers, pasteurizers and filling lines. As the production of a variety of dairy products in different batch sizes becomes pretty complex, we built a virtual model to test the future production plan before the investment is made. The simulation maps every single product flow and recipe, it will show potential bottlenecks and extensive statistics and utilization can be gathered to optimized the suggested layout.
We have completed a project for TRIBOT and its advantages for the supply chain. It’s a great idea of having triangular containers to fill the gaps between round drums to maximize space utilization. Larger tribots are even more economic! To crunch the numbers and visualize the concept for potential investors, we were commissioned to produce a short animation video:
Gulftainer operates the Sharjah and Khorfakkan Container Terminals in the UAE as well as terminals in Brazil, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and the USA. Before implementing their new custom-designed Port Operating System, they are using ISL’s Chesscon Vitual Terminal to test the software, features and strategies in a risk-free environment. They have developed several Test Scenarios and the our emulation tool acts and responds like the equipment / operators in the real port would do. Then they can derive statistics and logs and detect errors if any tasks were wrongly assigned or which allocation strategy works best. Vinay Sharma, the Head of IT said, that the Chesscon Virtual Terminal was indeed very helpful to assist them with the testing before going live, it showed where the bottlenecks are.
We have simulated the electric monorail system for transporting carts and pallets through the Emirates Inflight Catering facility a few years back at the initial design stage using Flexsim simulation software. The incline-capable Schierholz Electric Monorail System ensures rapid, safe above-ground transportation of goods.
