Smart factory in the industrial production
Efficient processes by combining logistics and production
Are you looking for the right software for efficient processes in warehouses, internal material flow and production supply? Do you need reliable and flexible logistics, perfectly coordinated and optimized processes as well as true product traceability along the entire internal value chain? Would you like to have maximum throughput speeds with reduced inventories and consistent cycle times?
Our viadat warehouse management system supports you in this. The software detects incorrect or excessive work in progress inventory, can automatically compensate or reduce it and thus reduce errors during picking and storage. In addition, viadat intelligently calculates processes in advance, ensures fast throughput times, optimal supply of production machines and supports you in the placement of goods – the system recognizes fast and slow-moving items and positions them accordingly in reach or at the back of the warehouse.
- Networking of material flows through interface to MES
- Linking logistics and production paves the way to the Smart Factory
- Optimally coordinated processes
- Minimization of stock and work-in-progress inventories
- Reduction of downtimes
- Optimized production supply
In the latest release viadat features a standardized interface to the common Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). This enables you to network material flows across traditional boundaries and to integrate logistics and production processes. WMS and MES are equal partners but use and generate different information. Both systems have their own decision-making powers. While the MES knows what and how much which machine produces and which material is required when at which production location, the WMS knows where these required materials are located. It controls the supply and disposal of material as well as the transport between the production units.
By combining logistics and production, the manufacturing industry benefits from lower warehouse and work in progress inventory, greater transparency and the economical production of both small batch sizes and large series – the prerequisites for Smart Factory.
