Sophisticated manufacturers view mobility technologies as a competitive tool to improve the efficiency and economic value of just-in-time production strategies. Smart Supply Chain solutions from Precyse empower companies to improve productivity and quality, enhance real-time decision making, and significantly refine inventory tracking methods. Our Entity Awareness Networks integrate AIDC (Automatic Identification and Data Capture) technologies such as Barcode, Passive RFID labels, and battery-powered Smart Tags into a seamless infrastructure. Key benefits of the Precyse Smart Supply Chain Solutions include:
Yard and warehouse: Coordinating the various activities in high velocity, large-scale logistics and storage facilities presents daunting challenges for manufacturers and suppliers. The Precyse Entity Awareness solution for Smart Supply Chain helps you stage materials, equipment, and finished goods where you need them, when you need them, in a cost-efficient way. The solution combines low-cost passive RFID and barcode with long-range active sensor devices that use local network or assisted GPS to deliver “hands-free” location and asset status instantly. Data collected is in turn integrated through centralized or distributed EQ AGS gateway servers, analyzed for relevancy and effect, and delivered to end users through a customizable dashboard or by interfacing with existing legacy systems.
Work in Progress: Process bottlenecks, manual exception handling, and material flow inefficiencies all drive production costs up. To reduce production line shortages and variability, the Precyse Smart Supply Chain solution provides real-time location and wireless data capture capabilities that help managers monitor and build progress on the line. The Sentinel server’s Virtual Factory dashboard view provides licensed users across the organization with real-time visibility into the current manufacturing status, actual to goal build rates, takt and cycle times, variance and more – all automatically captured and current. By effectively managing Work In Progress, companies can optimize utilization of capital assets and increase overall efficiencies while improving customer satisfaction and product availability.
Material Flow: Ensuring inventory availability is critical for cost-effective manufacturing operations. Material flow variability results in line shortages, increased material cost, and waste. The Precyse Smart Supply Chain solution provides companies with an automated tool kit to validate build-plans with the actual movements of materials across diverse supply chains. The solution drives supplier accountability through real-time visibility and reduces overall material and manufacturing costs. Improved material management can make Just-In-Time (JIT) or Sequence-Specific ordering significantly more efficient, saving an average 10% of total JIT inventory.
