Overview

 

Manufacturers today must manage the complexity of producing smaller lot sizes, with shorter lead times and increasing raw material costs. In addition, supply chain issues and internal part shortages have driven manufacturers to increase buffer stocks in their warehouses, leading to high investment costs.

In this challenging environment, any misuse of material can impact quality and profitability, and smart management of the intralogistics and material flow within the factory has become more important than ever.  Manufacturers need a solution for just-in-time material logistics, so that only the materials needed on the shop floor are allocated, and excess warehouse stock can be eliminated through high accuracy, real-time inventory management.

Siemens Opcenter Intraplant Logistics (IPL) gives manufacturers the tools they need to master material flow throughout the plant, from inbound receiving to outbound shipping, including quantities, status and locations. The intralogistics solution:

  • Delivers raw material and sub-assemblies to the right place at the right time
  • Manages and automates logistics operations on the shop floor
  • Integrates with scheduling, MES, ERP, AGVs, automatic storage solutions, real-time material tracking and connected electronics (IoT)

Join the webinar to learn how manufacturers use IPL for intralogistics automation and to increase flexibility, quality, and profitability.
