Fully networked Material Flow in Logistics and Production

Processes in logistics and production are nowadays considered to be "integrated", but in many companies they are still in fact worlds apart, and only come into contact at the transfer points of materials and goods. This results in non-transparent and cumbersome processes, excessive warehouse and WIP stocks, and time and quality losses.
In this scenario, efficient production down to batch size 1 remains wishful thinking.

It doesn't have to be that way.

The integrative connection of warehouse management (WMS), transport control (WES) and production control system (MES) enables a higher level of transparency and efficiently interlinked processes to be achieved. This results in a high level of customer satisfaction and releases tied-up capital for important investments.

WMS viadat and HYDRA

  • Connection of production machines to the WES via MES
  • Material transports synchronized with production processes
  • Demand-driven material supply to machines and supermarkets with the precise parts needed at a given point in time, and goods collection, by means of cranes, forklifts, tugger trains, conveyor systems, AGVs, etc.
