MES | LOGISTICS MANAGEMENT

An advanced, IoT-powered solution that significantly cuts the cost and risks of transportation and logistics, such as FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management, can easily become the source of a major competitive advantage for a manufacturer.

Introduction to FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management

FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management is an exceptional digital platform for managing and optimizing logistics and transportation related to producing and delivering products to customers in the most efficient manner.

 

It features three major capabilities:

  • FactoryWorxTM Logistics Transportation Management (TMS)
  • FactoryWorxTM Chain of Responsibility (COR)
  • FactoryWorxTM Load Builder

FactoryWorxTM Transportation Management System (TMS) manages the physical journey of the product from the loading dock through production lines, to customer delivery. With powerful tracking and tracing capability it streamlines transportation requirements across product life cycle, analysing costs from multiple carriers to help you reduce costs, improve operational efficiency, and enhance customer satisfaction.

 

In addition, the FactoryWorxTM Chain of Responsibility (COR) functionality provides advanced tracking of product transportation along the entire supply chain to reduce the potential cost and risk legal and ethical compliance.

 

The FactoryWorxTM Load Builder is an advanced functionality of FactoryWorxTM Artificial Intelligence solution. Its purpose is to deliver maximum cost savings and efficiency by eliminating the cost of labour. It is used in fully automated production and storage facilities, i.e. “lights-out” or “dark factories” replacing human labour with robotics.

OPTIMISED & AUTOMATED TRANSPORTATION PROCESS

FactoryWorxTM Transportation Management

About FactoryWorxTM Transportation Management System (TMS)

Efficient transportation depends on multiple factors, that vary in the degree to which the company can easily control them.

 

Focused on contracts and collaboration with carriers, the FactoryWorxTM Transportation Management module manages pricing and tariffs and aligns it with customer requirements and other factors to determine the optimum necessary cost of transport of goods. FactoryWorx software will automatically make these decisions and choose the best carrier.

 

FactoryWorxTM Transportation Management System (TMS) utilises data from the supply chain to enable predictive production scheduling  in response parts availability and other changes in the supply chain.

 

Through its ERP integration, it also provides insights on a more granular level of materials control, tactical production and materials planning, and quality control.

 

Functionality:

  • Tracking – rates, tariffs and tolerance reporting.
  • Transportation – planning, monitoring, traceability.

PRODUCTION ACCOUNTABILITY GOES BEYOND PRODUCT DELIVERY

FactoryWorxTM Chain of Responsibility (COR) Management

SMART INTEGRATIONS

About FactoryWorxTM Chain of Responsibility (COR) Management

Road laws called “Chain of Responsibility” state that everyone in the supply is responsible if they breach or fail to actively prevents breaches of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL). The COR law extends to preventing or reducing potential harm or loss (risks) to yourself and others.

 

Managing (controlling) these risks requires that businesses recognize and consider all potential dangers and satisfactorily reduce or avoid them before they occur.

 

The FactoryWorxTM Chain of Responsibility module uses data analytics and provides tracking of events during the transportation of goods along the entire supply chain to ensure visibility of compliance to road laws called “Chain of Responsibility”. It is essential in minimising and  eliminating potential risks and costs.

Functionality:

  • Time slotting to leave and come.
  • Planning route.
  • Load building.

Benefits

  • Contributes to customer satisfaction through consistent, cost-effective, on-time product delivery through  smart, predictive transportation, storage and handling of products and materials.
  • Reduced cost of production by keeping optimum stock levels.
  • Reduce cost of down-time due to out-of-stock problems.
  • Improved production efficiency by providing stock to production lines when needed.
  • Optimise costs of transportation with cost analytics and scheduling.

SMART INTEGRATIONS

FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management and ERP

Integration with ERP and other Business Information Systems, including Supply Chain data enables FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management to leverage connected data and advanced analytics to optimise cost of transportation and trace Chain of Responsibility information. This data includes the following elements that inform decisions for Logistics:

  • Product specifications
  • POs
  • Compliance information
  • Locations
  • Supplier price lists

Management and FactoryWorxTM MES

The biggest advantage of adopting FactoryWorxTM Logistics Management is that it integrates with the comprehensive MES suite of intelligent production data. The two FactoryWorxTM MES modules that complement and enhance Logistics are Inventory Management and Warehouse Management.

Inventory Management Integration:

Integration with Inventory Management leverages data information as it moves in real-time from or to stock and ensures accuracy though stocktakes and cycle counts to inform transportation module about any requirements and trigger optimised stock transportation planning and execution.

  • Stock management
  • Inventory management

 

Warehouse Management Integration:

Integration with Warehouse Management  leverages data from all areas of production and is available from a range of devices. The major feature of this integration is the maximum accuracy of data available for production:

  • Barcode scanning
  • Mobile devices
  • Label printing and coding
  • VR glasses
  • Sensors
  • LGVs

PRODUCTION ACCOUNTABILITY GOES BEYOND PRODUCT DELIVERY

The Ultimate Power of the FactoryWorxTM Load Builder

The FactoryWorxTM Load Builder is an advanced functionality of FactoryWorxTM Artificial Intelligence solution. It delivers maximum cost savings and efficiency in “lights-out” or “dark factories”, which refers to fully automated, robotics driven production and storage facilities, without any human labour on premises.

  • Robotics doing simple human tasks - Cost of handling and labour – and errors – reduced
  • Each smallest step in production – automated and centrally controlled
  • More automation conveyors – load builder decides how pallets are put onto trucks and where do they go including weight and load on trucks – to optimise cost of freight.
  • More automation conveyors – load builder decides how pallets are put onto trucks and where do they go including weight and load on trucks – to optimise cost of freight.
