In comparison to the previous assembly plant, which used the route train method in fixed cycles, the new component plant typically produces in batches, so material supply must be organised in a way that is quicker and more flexible than before.
A route optimisation on the plant premises was also achieved by implementing a new transportation network and cleaning up the so-called station overview. In addition, SyncroTESS optimises all those transport orders which, due to their complexity, are not suitable for other standardised transport concepts such as scheduled route traffic.
This also applies to the transparency of the capacity utilisation of the vehicles with the aid of a special SyncroTESS evaluation tool - an important piece of information, particularly in the restructuring phase, in terms of monitoring developments over time. After all, there are currently around 1,000 transport orders per day in the system, which is around 25 percent more than in the old plant structure.
- Flexibilization of the material supply
- Reduction of 20% of empty runs and downtimes of the forklifts
- Increasing the effectiveness of the industrial trucks used
- Connection of autonomously moving transport vehicles
