In a fast-paced world where newer and better technology are unfolding rapidly it is hard to keep up as a machine constructor. Everybody communicates with everything and vice versa. But also, concepts are changing. Customers do no longer want a product, they want a solution. Focus of machine builders will become more and more on service and the delivery of customized products based on modules. Is important to be able to deliver or replace components quick. Of course, it’s inevitable that components can be tracked and traced. It’s important for machine builders to be flexible and innovative. This to live up to foreign competition and to satisfy the more and more high demanding customer. Supply chain is of crucial importance in order to keep up with the OEM-er and suppliers. Lean and efficiency throughout the supply chain is a must, resulting in shorter cycle times, happy customers and a healthy profit.

StockControl will support warehouse with digital processing of transaction of products and materials. This way you will prevent workorders being started without the proper materials in place. In case of missing parts, the operator can file a pick request digital, making sure the order can start asap. Picking orders, goods received, handling of materials, will all be presented digital to the warehouse employees. Due to the realtime connection with ERP, you will be able to monitor the movements of materials and parts.
QualityControl handles scrap and deviations reported digital by the operators. The main goal of the Smart Production Suite is that operators focus on producing and nothing also then producing. The entire organization has a “bring” attitude making sure that operator can always continue working and will not be distracted by searching for materials or wasting time on scrap and deviations. When deviations or scrap are reported, Quality will receive an alert so they are immediately notified when deviations occur. This way all information is available to analyze the root cause.
The Smart Production Suite will support you with the fully 100% digitalization of your organization.
