Material flow for manufacturing and intralogistics processes

The users determine the work procedures with mobiTOUCH

mobiTOUCH covers a majority of operational logistics and manufacturing processes in one application, and thus simplify the IT integration in the internal processes. The mobiTOUCH system is the sophisticated tool to reduce transport and reaction times - and ensures fast and transparent access to all information in the process steps of internal transport chains.

As a sub-system, mobiTOUCH can be integrated into a higher-level system or work as a stand-alone system with all its components, in order to ensure seamless internal material logistics. Interfaces to common ERP and MES systems ensure an exchange of information in real time.

Flexibly illustrating storage area structure and topology

Rapid adaptation to changed processes

mobiTOUCH rapidly implements necessary adjustments of the storage area structure in the intralogistics process, which includes

  • new storage locations, areas, paths and places
  • new islands, machines and parking areas
  • new routes for transport trains
  • new transfer points for automatic conveyor equipment and
  • hierarchical resupply systems (e.g. using the waterfall method).

 

The system selects from a number of methods for creation of transport orders and their processing methods, and accurately illustrates the controls for the relevant required material flow.

Examples

  • Container and batch FIFO
  • Creating reserves from production and/or for dispatch
  • Handling replacement articles
  • Supporting urgent requests
  • Taking account of alternative packaging types
  • Automatically creating packaging and outer packaging orders if necessary
  • Minimum downtimes between transport orders.

 

The actual information on the article, available quantities, storage place occupation and on the batch can be called up at all times by mobile (MT MDE) and via desktop (MT CLIENT), so that bottlenecks are identified at an early stage, and the structures can be adapted accordingly.
