Virtual warehouse

Virtual warehouse: the 3D planning of the storage areas

The design and planning of a warehouse is relatively complex; after all, it is necessary to think here both in terms of the boundaries of the warehouse itself and in terms of external factors (incoming and outgoing goods, etc.). Especially for the development of flow charts and other processes it is advantageous to consider all details of the warehouse by means of visualization. A virtual warehouse is thus a software tool that can be used for initial planning as well as for the expansion of warehouses - in recent years not only through 3D representations on the computer, but also for training purposes for pickers, etc. using VR glasses.

Depending on the intended use, a virtual warehouse can also be understood as a virtual warehouse, which, unlike the classic warehouse, not only covers the physical inventory, but also provides a link to retailers. This makes it possible, for example, to flexibly adapt product ranges in e-commerce.

Important: However, a virtual warehouse is predominantly understood as part of logistics planning, which is based on a virtual environment and helps to visually map logistical processes, trace routes and thus better identify weak points.
