With the rapid development of China’s logistics technology, four-way-shuttle based storage and retrieval system( FWSBS/ RS) is gaining more and more attention by virtue of its flexibility, convenience and efficiency as a new automated storage technology, but it takes more time for the conventional simulation, which brings inconvenience to the early planning and modeling of the logistics system. Based on Flexsim, an automatic 3D modeling system of four-way shuttle with user-defined parameters is developed by using the idea of automatic modeling. The corresponding task list was automatically executed and the warehousing operation was performed. The utilization rate of relevant equipment and the efficiency of the system were counted. The system makes modeling more efficient and convenient, In addition, it reduces the difficulty of using Flexsim and extends its application in intelligent manufacturing simulation. The example application shows that the system has excellent performance and good interactivity, which can better meet the needs of planners and designers.
