The most important task of the systems in production focuses on correct material procurement, optimal order control and smooth material flow. From material supply to the individual assembly stations, to the machines, to set formation, test benches and stock returns, the processes are very different. At the same time, performance and quality must be guaranteed in every single step.
When cycle times in production are constantly becoming shorter, the variety of articles is increasing and model variants are growing, the demands on internal material flow control are also growing as a result. We support you with qualified workshops and research methods as early as the analysis of current processes and process strategies. For the subsequent implementation of the results, we can offer you a range of tried-and-tested order-picking systems such as eLocation, Pick-to-Light, Voice Picking 0der Pick-by-Frame, implement the elaborated strategies and optimise the route train control and localisation, tool location and material provision.
In today's enterprise resource planning, replenishment control is a fundamentally important process. It can contribute significantly to increasing the efficiency of the material flow. In addition to the requirement to ensure replenishment of picking points (supermarket, assembly line) and to guarantee constant warehouse availability, it is important to place the correct material variant at the correct storage or picking point. Incorrect positioning inevitably leads to incorrect picks during order picking. Take advantage of our experience in implementing systemic employee support in replenishment processes and benefit from the advantages (product quality, labour productivity and inventory accuracy).
In order to minimise material transports and to optimise the production flow through shorter handling processes, kid-formation processes are often used in factories. The assembly of components and parts (in quantity and quality) required for the manufacture of certain products or assemblies are significant for flawless and faultless shoring. We select the right concept from the extensive portfolio of methods after a thorough analysis of your processes.
In order to optimise the manufacturing process of production goods in terms of time, cost position and, in particular, susceptibility to errors, we offer you various processes and systems for assembly support, primarily for locating components and installation position on the product. Depending on the requirements, the process sequences and the user acceptance, systems such as Pick-by-Beam, Pick-by-Vision or also eLocation can be used.
While quality assurance is pro-actively carried out in the factory using rules and standards, quality control activities serve to identify and sort out defective products using examinations, tests and inspection mechanisms (standards). Ultimately, the aim is to minimise rejects and rework and to safeguard the company's reputation. Depending on the inspection steps and standards to be monitored, we can support you in achieving your goals with different methods.
