Material flow control: from the warehouse to expedition.
Eliminate unnecessary transport, waiting or excess inventory. Lean logistics means the right material is at the right place and time.
Real-time updates about the production progress allow you to be flexible, adjust to changes quickly and prevent issues from escalating.
Waste elimination helps you reduce lead time significantly. Achieve a connected flow without unnecessary stoppages!
If you have the right information about upcoming production, you can optimize your inventory and use up less storage capacity.
Number of kanban cards in the loop
Material group selection
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.
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.
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.
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.
