Internal logistics optimization is the key to lean production. Stop wasting your resources with a material flow control module by Productoo.

Waste elimination

Eliminate unnecessary transport, waiting or excess inventory. Lean logistics means the right material is at the right place and time.

Real-time feedback

Real-time updates about the production progress allow you to be flexible, adjust to changes quickly and prevent issues from escalating.

Lead time reduction

Waste elimination helps you reduce lead time significantly. Achieve a connected flow without unnecessary stoppages!

Inventory optimization

If you have the right information about upcoming production, you can optimize your inventory and use up less storage capacity.

Efficient production stock management

Control your WIP and stay informed about material consumption!

  • Future consumption of material inputs is available at one click so you can prevent unnecessary production stoppages. It also helps you utilize your stock capacity more efficiently.

  • The kanban loop dashboard gives you a clear overview of the status of your semi-finished goods production. This allows you to control your work-in-progress by keeping a limited number of items in the loop.

Production schedule is updated in real time. This minimizes mistakes in line feeding.

Line feeders see the list of materials to be prepared and confirm the preparation with these buttons.

It's possible to add any comments.

Real-time line feeding

Keep your line feeders on track!

  • Line feeders have access to the current production plan in order to see how much material needs to be brought to production lines and when.

  • A checklist is available for a clear overview of what's left to prepare.

  • All is optimized for tablets so your team can stay mobile and updated on the go.

Logistic leveling scenario helps you create optimal picking loops.

Monitor the capacity of your picking loops.

Picking of finished materials

Optimize your picking process!

  • Once materials are produced, they should be picked and transported to the warehouse or to the expedition area. Productoo optimizes the number of items to be picked (= logistic leveling) so you utilize the capacity of your logistic equipment efficiently in each picking loop.

  • Pickers see where they need to pick the items and where to transport them. They confirm each step using action buttons.

Real-time truck image monitor

No more mixed up or late deliveries!

  • The Truck Image Monitor informs you about all upcoming shipments as well as your expedition history.

  • You can clearly see the progress of the preparation of each outbound delivery.

  • This way you can make sure your goods are ready and shipped on time.
