Material replenishment is a production-critical and cost-intensive factor for companies. Insufficient transparency into material inventory and needs can lead to disruptions throughout the entire material flow. Capturing and processing position data is essential for monitoring resource utilization, which allows companies to produce effectively while preventing costly downtimes.
Automated material replenishment relies on full transparency about the status and location of assets and materials. Different location technologies enable companies to preemptively detect material needs and automatically trigger replenishment processes.
1 | Lack of Transparency:
Incomplete or insufficient material monitoring across various spaces (logistics and assembly) leads to disruptions in replenishment control and ultimately production.
2 | Costly Material Shortage:
Bottlenecks in material processing can lead to machine or process stops, and expensive production downtimes.
Drawing boundaries — Geofences and event triggers (min/max levels) can automatically control material replenishment. This allows production/logistics teams to replenish material quantities as needed without manual actions.
Full visibility — eKanban dashboards visualize material inventory status at all times. Material containers are refilled by rule-based, automated replenishment orders.
