• Production Industry

    Just-in-sequence planning and consistent transparency

Apart from production planning, the storage of raw materials, partially finished and finished goods for an optimized production line or machine supply and waste disposal is an important area. This requires precise logistics of materials, from an optimized planning of deliveries considering the transport volume to a flexible handling of bottlenecks and the related access to recent goods receipt. The use of PSI Logistics Suite provides you with the necessary transparency and safety you need for smooth production logistics.

Our Supply Chain Management System PSIglobal includes functions, e.g., for:

  • Control of material flow
  • Just-in-sequence supply via JIS, JIT or KANBAN
  • Forklift guidance system
  • Time slot control/slot management

Our software enables, e.g., the following:

  • Supply of manufacturing lines with raw materials based on information from ERP and MES systems
  • Automatic goods receipt of the incoming goods from the manufacturing lines through the integration with the MES system
  • Collection of all required inventory attributes for the goods to be produced: Production date, line number, shift number
  • Safeguarding of the tracking of the raw materials used for the production of finished goods

All operations can consistently be presented in the PSI Logistics systems, i.e. due to the use of state-of-the-art technologies as well as the control station with cockpit function to a complete master display with integration of existing systems, interactive interventions and thus an optimal control of all bottlenecks is always possible.

As a complement to the production environment, a spare parts management is possible and will be controlled via PSIwms. Apart from the complete management of the central and regional warehouse to mobile warehouses on assembly and repair vehicles by using the mobile online terminals with GPS function, the entire material flow is optimized and controlled in PSIwms. The acceptance of repairs and the management of alternative articles should be mentioned here.
