In 2006, the SYNCROTESS transport management system replaced the manual management of transport orders at CLAAS. With today's internal logistics order volumes, this method of working is no longer conceivable for anyone involved. Today, CLAAS relies on efficient production logistics that need to be optimised using intelligent algorithms.
From a bird's eye view, the system looks at all transport orders placed by the ERP system or manually and, considering numerous framework conditions and parameters, calculates path and time-optimized routes to avoid empty runs, deliver to the assembly on time, and optimize the use of available resources.
Since the expansion of the 2021 software, plant traffic has been reduced by optimising the use of tractors. Internal material flow has become more flexible, empty runs have been minimised and processes have been further improved for the 45-member team.
