What is a Weight and Balance system?
Please browse the recent articles featuring Weight and Balance. The CLOS blog features industry news, latest customer stories, product features and analysis for our customers and peers in the industry.
A Weight & Balance system (WBS) is used to calculate the load capacity in logistics. Within a military environment, this is a critical part of the logistics planning. Calculating weight and balance requires comprehensive data in terms of size and volume for different types of cargo and transportation and can be a complex process, particularly in the military logistics field.
Using some of the latest technology, solutions to real challenges in W&B logistics can be found to optimize the system through automation and simulation. A logistics optimization system aims to accelerate military load planning, enable better CDM and ultimately increase potential mission success.
