Given its superior efficiency, internal logistics in the automobile industry set an example for other sectors. OEMs, suppliers and logistics experts work together to guarantee the smooth material flow into the production process. A single container of parts arriving late, or at the wrong cycle, can bring the production line process to a standstill. Automobile manufacturers and suppliers require an intelligent internal logistics software solution to overcome these challenges.
Efficient Factory Logistics
Thousands of daily transport orders ensure the supply of the assembly line. Optimization software assures the efficient and timely execution of all these transport movements. Using INFORM´s intelligent in-house solution, material flows and internal transports secure an optimized delivery of supplies for production.
The intralogistics software solution SYNCROTESS is a comprehensive tool for planning and the real-time control of transport processes. Thus, material flows can be managed, implemented and made transparent.
Solution SyncroTESS Features
INFORM offers comprehensive solutions for internal logistics in the automotive industry. The internal logistics software can be adapted to different logistics and production approaches. Transparency in the material flow and the optimum utilization of resources play a leading role.
- A transport management system controlling all resources
Employees, as well as all active and passive resources, can be managed using one system: forklift trucks, tractors or special devices, and all kinds of passive transport accessories (e.g. trailers, swap bodies, containers, racks).
- Intelligent real-time optimization
Real-time optimization of all resources for the execution of internal logistical processes as well as automated assignment of work and move orders. Instead of considering all individuals resources isolated, the internal logistics software system generates a solution by simultaneously taking into account all occurrences. The results are assigned as new orders to the drivers and automated guided vehicles.
- Management of multi-stage transport
Various delivery concepts can be modelled. A distinction is made between one-stage delivery concepts such as JIT and JIS and multistage delivery concepts with the use of supermarkets or cross-docks. The software system allows the internal logistics planner to easily configure such delivery concepts and the system assures that such concepts are executed in reality.
- Online material tracking
Real-time information on the current positions of parts and material by collecting status and position updates from scanners, RFID etc.
- Comprehensive performance measurement
Online KPI's, comprehensive reporting and historical information at the touch of a button.
An optimum production process in the automobile industry requires an equally optimal internal logistics process. It plays a decisive role in both quality and cost efficiency.
