QuestionWarehouse Visualization Pin

Guys,

I'm trying to look for the best graphics toolkit to help me out in creating my new application. I'm not sure whether I should choose OpenGL with SDL, Microsoft XNA, etc...

Here is a brief idea about the application:

The Warehouse Watcher is a visualization system that helps warehouse personnel see the warehouse in front of their eyes, navigate through it, and get the information required in significantly lesser time.

Display

The WW system displays warehouse(s) in 3D. It should be capable of displaying one or more warehouses based on the customer needs. The primary objects to be displayed in a warehouse are locations, pallets, items, and labels. The secondary objects are forklifts, staff offices, conveyers, workers, trucks, and other objects that make the graphical representation of the warehouse more realistic. The objects must be displayed in right scale and with appealing graphical representations.

Navigation

The user will have the capability to walk through the warehouse. The user can look and move in any direction. S\he will have the option of exiting the warehouse through its doors and entering into another warehouse. A collision detection system must be implemented in order to make the user’s movement more realistic. The user has the option of whether to enable collision detection or disable it. The user will also have options of magnifying objects, looking into their details and rotating them. The user will also have the capability to increase\decrease his\her speed while walking\running around the warehouse.

Selection

While navigating, the user must have the option of selecting a certain object and looking into its details. When the mouse moves over a certain object, it must be highlighted. This functionality is optional as it would affect performance. In order to implement the selection and highlighting of objects, the selection mode picking method must be used in order to keep track of all objects displayed in the 3D coordinate system. When an object is selected, the user will be taken near to that object and the major information about the object must be displayed on a side pane.

Search

So we were able to walk around the warehouse and navigate the objects, but what if we really want to check a single SKU? Walking around and trying to find this SKU manually will be as much headache as trying to find it physically. That’s why the search functionality would prove to be very useful in trying to find specific objects in the warehouse. For example, if the user is trying to see how an SKU is distributed in a warehouse, s\he can simple search for it, and the system will highlight all the occurrences of this SKU in the warehouse and take the user to its first occurrence.

Data Analysis

This should be the most important part of the project and the reason why a customer would purchase such a product. This part would analyze the customer data and give customers key performance indicators and tips on improving their warehouse operations.

Database Connectivity

Libraries I am thinking of are DLINQ and NHibernate.. Would appreciate if someone can tell me which is better it if there is some other alternative.





Best Regards,
Ali B,
