Abstract

This paper proposes real application example of industrial reorganization based on the use of the Simulation. Simulation development and use is presented as a methodological approach to solve the problem of warehouse reorganization. This is the first step to develop new innovative techniques, obtained through a combination of Artificial Intelligence (AI) methodologies; these new techniques linked to the simulator can become the support to the re-engineering process in a highly detailed scenario.
