Economic control concepts

The control of all units within an automated goods transport system is the central logistical element in ensuring smooth processes. Dürr offers individual control system concepts (as well as their associated visualization systems) for hospital logistics.

Our services

  • Accurate planning and execution of material flow controls
  • Updating from S5 to S7 controls
  • EMR drive technology with the latest generation of frequency converters

Updating your controls to Dürr's latest control concept is carried out during normal operation without disturbance to daily transport jobs. This ensures a smooth transition of your system enabling it to meet your current logistical needs.

System functionality test with a Dürr individual simulation

At an early stage Dürr can, on request, carry out a detailed simulation of the whole automated goods transport system. We check the functionality of your system and evaluate its success based on transport throughput. With a simulation model, empty runs and system reliability and availability are easy to assess. The results of your individual virtual simulation can then be applied in reality to optimize your controls.

We evaluate the following key system factors

  • Different types of transport jobs
  • Run times
  • Processing of kitchen jobs
