Ask any experienced modeler, ‘What’s the most important part of modeling?’ and you’ll be surprised that a majority will say the same thing – planning! The first part of planning is establishing a structure for your project and in this first issue we are introducing Rockwell Automation’s Project Guide to share the structure that we follow when planning a project. Are you following these steps in every project? Are there steps that you’d like to include?


Easy-to-Build Logistics Process Flow 

  • Arena utilizes a modeling methodology that enables you to build a logistics process flow in a fast, intuitive and easy-to-learn manner.
  • Arena’s drag and drop elements and structures allow you build simulations and visualize results with engaging 2D and 3D animation capabilities that do not require programming assistance.

Dashboards for Logistics Optimization 

  • Arena’s built-in dynamic dashboards give you the insights you need to fully optimize logistics.
  • Within Arena you can build customized displays of the model information to enable you to better understand what is happening in your process.
