Multi-user online service implementation for web-based factory modeling. Rich user interface and scalable backend system to build online simulation services on or do other processing of factory data. Demo at

Fraunhofer SimWebApp Web Site


  • Full featured web frontend and backend to model factory layouts for logistics simulations
  • User interface collects parameters for resources (staff, machines, stocks), products (parts list) and processes (work plans)
  • Scalable queueing system for simulation jobs
  • Conversion layer to translate between frontend factory model and simulation engine
  • Wrapper to invoke simulation engines (exchangeable)
  • Drill-down navigation to analyse simulation results
  • Fast rendering of result diagrams for a variety of logistics performance indicators
  • Multi-user online service implementation
  • Flexible role-based access control on action level
  • Seamless integration of interactive simulation models into the world wide web. Deep link into models from any webpage. Example ... Open a simulation model (a specific case study) with a generic demo user account:
  • Integrated framework for educational video seminars
  • Management of simulation projects and models for endusers
  • Extensive error handling and logging available throughout the implementation
  • Well documentated software architecture and well readable english source code
  • Standards-based: XHTML, CSS, Ajax, SOAP, SQL
  • Modern application design utilizing object-relation mapping
  • Distributed software and service architecture for scalability
  • Cross-browser compatible for Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari, Opera with current releases
  • (MIND: No simulation engine or algorithms included. With e.g. Desmo-J, Open Source simulation engines you could use, do exist. SimWebApp adds an intuitive web frontend for factory modeling and additionaly a multi-user online-service infrastructure to build industrial grade web-based simulation services on.)
