Inventory and Materials Management
Reduce errors and production bottlenecks
ENSURE GOODS AND MATERIALS ARE AVAILABLE WHEN AND WHERE THEY'RE NEEDED
Having the right materials available when and where they’re needed keeps your production processes moving from the moment you receive raw materials until you ship the end product to your customers. Using real-time data you can optimise the material management in your plants and warehouses, reducing waste and downtime across your entire operation.
Situation: Materials needed just in time
There is a constant and critical need to move materials into, within, and out of your warehouses, distribution centres, and your plants themselves. Doing this efficiently is critical to the success and profitability of your business. Raw materials need to be replenished just-in-time without halting production, work in process needs to be tracked closely, and inventory levels need to be optimized for raw materials, finished goods, and even the spare pools utilized by your manufacturing equipment itself.
