About the Library
• The HBW library has been created from
scratch
• Replaces the former HBW3D library
which is no longer supported
• The HBW library provides more objects
than the previous HBE3D library
• The HBW library is free of charge, it
does not need any special license
• The library is part of the Plant Simulation
13 installation

Purpose
• The HBW library can be used to create a
high bay warehouse system for the
automotive and other industries
• The High Bay Warehouse is a storing
object, based on the built-in object
STORE
• The warehouse management system
controls all activities for storing and
retrieving products in the warehouse

The Objects of the Library
• The HBW library provides two objects
• The warehouse management system
WMS controls all storing places in the
warehouse
• The object Racklane provides the
functionality of an entire rack lane
• The method userSetTarget can be used
to get all storing parameters from the
warehouse and storing them as
attributes of the MU which activates the
method

The MUs of the Library
• The EUR_Palette is a standard palette
with the dimension 800 x 1200 x 144
mm³. Its capacity is 1.
• The EUR_Palett_2x2 also is a standard
palette but has a capacity of 2x2
• Both MUs can be used as template for
your own MU

Warehouse Management System (WMS)
• The WMS collects all information about
the rack lanes of the warehouse during
the INIT phase
• Clicking the Show Content button
displays a table with all products and
quantities currently stored in the
warehouse
• For each product you can define in
which rack lane the product should be
stored
• If you want to automatically remove
products, you can define the time at
which removing will start and the interval
between two removing activities

Creating a Sample Model
• In a first step we want to make sure that
product AA will be stored in RackLane2,
product BB in Racklane1, and product
CC and DD in the Racklane
• Open the dialog of WMS by double
clicking its icon
• Click Open Table of Predefined Racks
• Enter the name of the products and the
rack lane where you want to store the
products
• Reset and Start the simulation run to
view the results

Removing Parts
from Warehouse
HBW – High Bay Warehouse
Removing Parts from Stock
• By default, parts will be removed from
stock automatically
• Removing starts after 20 minutes and
parts will be removed every 5 minutes
• Here we want to show how you can
remove parts from stock on your own
• For this, clear the check box Activate

Removing Parts from Stock
• Insert a Method object
• Insert a Variable of type integer and call
it RemoveOrderNo
• Open the Method
• First we need to know how many parts of
each type are currently available from
stock. This will be done by using method
stock of the WMS
• Select one of the products and the
quantity you want to remove from stock
• Increment the order number
RemoveOrderNo
• Call removeProducts of the WMS
• One or more palettes will be removed
from stock. The palettes have the
attribute OrderNo with the Siemens PLM Software

Creating Your Own
WMS
HBW – High Bay Warehouse
Creating Your Own WMS
• If you want to create your own WMS,
you have to support several functions.
These functions will be described in
detail below.
• Create a new Frame in the Class Library
• Insert a Method and call it INIT
• This method needs to have a callevery statement:
• Starting at root, all methods with the name register will be called. The parameter for
the method register is the identifier HBW, the WMS object, and the method which
should be called to register (register_HBW)
• The rack lanes will then register themselves by calling the method register_HBW

Creating Your Own WMS: Method register_HBW
• The Method register_HBW is called by each
rack lane
• The following parameters are defined:
• RackLane: the name of the rack lane
• Box_W: the width of a storage place
• Box_D: the depth of a storage place
• Box_H: the height of a storage place
• Columns: the number of columns of one
rack
• Rows: the number of rows of one rack
• These are the definitions of a rack lane

Creating Your Own WMS: Method getFreePlace
• We need a method called getFreePlace.
The usage of this method can be seen in
the method userSetTarget
• The Method getFreePlace has the following parameters:
Product: the name of the product (input parameter)
sizeW: the width of the product or the palette carrying the product (input parameter)
The size parameters can be used
sizeD: the depth of the product or the palette carrying the product (input parameter)
to select a rack lane with the
storage
place dimension fitting the
sizeH: the total height of the product and the palette carrying the product (input
parameter)
size parameter
orderNo: the order number for storing the product/palette (output parameter)
Racklane: the name of the rack lane where the palette/product will be stored (output parameter)
Side: left or right defining the rack within the racklane (output parameter)
Column: the column number of the rack (output parameter)
Row: the row number of the rack (output parameter
• The return value of the method is of type boolean, true if the output parameters have
valid values, false otherwise

Creating Your Own WMS: Removing Products
• Add a Method and call it removeProducts
• Parameter of the method:
• OrderNo: the order number of the remove order, mostly defined by the calling
method
• Product: the name of the product to be removed from stock
• Quantity: the number of products (not palettes) to be removed
• First check if the product is defined in the warehouse
• Check if there are enough products available in the warehouse
• Determine the Racklane from which the palettes have to be removed
• You might have to remove more than one palette from the warehouse. For each
palette to remove call:

Creating Your Own WMS: Parameters of appendOrder
• Each rack lane provides the method appendOrder to append orders to the RSU
• This method has the following parameters:
•
orderNo: the order number for storing or removing palettes
•
orderType: the type of the order (put or get)
•
Column: the column number where to store or remove the palette
•
Row: the row number where to store or remove the palette
•
Side: left or right to define the rack where the palette should be stored or removed
• After the RSU has finished removing a palette from the warehouse, the method
