FACTORY AUTOMATION

Factory management in the era of Industry 4.0

In the Industry 4.0 era, the key word is digitalization, a phenomenon that makes it possible to collect and analyze data through machines. This leads to faster, more flexible and efficient processes so that high quality goods are produced at low costs.

An Industry 4.0 factory is an independent and interconnected entity that has the ability to collect data, analyze it and make automated decisions. This is possible by implementing a suite of systems for the management of all production activities, from the planning stage to the actual manufacture of the products.

APS & MES – the first step towards Industry 4.0

APS is a tool for modeling and testing production scenarios before they are put into practice. The system is frequently used together with the MES solution, which handles the execution of production plans generated by APS.

With the help of a MES solution (for executing factory activities) information can be automatically transmitted to the workers in the production unit.

APS – Advanced Planning and Scheduling

APS shows you what to produce, when to produce, on what equipment and with what resources. The system uses advanced computational algorithms that help balance production capacity with demand, to generate feasible production schedules. With APS you plan in a much shorter time the entire production activity, starting with existing operations and resources to raw material requirements and maintenance activities.

WMS (Warehouse Management System) helps you gain full control over the flow of materials in the factory, monitor consumption and production efficiency, and automate quality control processes. The system includes rules for unloading goods (FIFO / FEFO / CMP), allows the management of different units of measurement (l, kg, m, pcs) and offers the possibility to reserve stocks. WMS also ensures serial / batch traceability for raw materials, semi-finished products and finished products.

What challenges do you solve with the warehouse management solution?

Chaotic and inefficient placement of goods in the warehouse

Complex logistics processes difficult to manage and monitor

Lack of visibility on resources and activities in the warehouse

Insufficient and inefficient storage capacity

Human errors in picking and processing orders

Lack of traceability on series and batch for raw materials

Monitoring quality control processes

Tracking consumption and production efficiency

The Inventory system shows you what you need to order, how much to order, when to order and where to store the goods, in order to properly cover stock needs for the production unit. Through the application you can easily plan the necessary stock and you can quickly generate orders for supply, transfer or production. Moreover, the system takes into account all the variables that could influence the size of demand, such as seasonality or trends, so that stocks are permanently correlated with production.

What challenges do you solve with the stock management solution?

Wrong estimation of the need for raw materials

Long time planning of stock requirements

Lack of real-time access to stock levels in multiple locations

Difficulty to adapt to changes in demands and conditions

Lack of access to stock forecasts depending on history, orders or other criteria
