Material & Logistics Planning
A proven way to reduce line side inventory levels by 84% and part shortages by 98%
Collaborative application used to document the storage and delivery plan for every part, with the ability to support execution and analysis
Create, track, and manage kanban containers with internal and external suppliers
Generate pick lists and track and manage kit carts and sequenced items for specific units and batches on the line
Visually analyze material flow, evaluate plant layouts, and minimize material handling labor for a better layout, faster
Do you spend hours updating control cycles, maintaining kitting plans, and creating kanban cards?
Proplanner provides a spreadsheet based user interface for creating PFEP data, which can be directly transformed into physical kanban cards and electronic part picking signals.
Do you have real time tracking of your supply chain? Are you immediately aware of part shortages and skipped kitted parts?
Dashboards and reports for supermarket operators, supervisors, and managers enable better decision-making and awareness of issues.
How do you know your floor space, racking and material handling personnel requirements for changing product and demand levels?
Rapidly generate and compare scenarios based on changing inputs and assumptions.
How are changes to part delivery locations communicated across departments?
Proplanner synchronizes process plans, work instructions, line balances, and part plans.
Are you able to visualize and quantify your material flow?
Flow Planner allows you to create spaghetti diagrams and evaluate trip and route based delivery options to accurately quantify material handling requirements.
Proplanner merges the assembly process plan with logistics definition and execution to enhance the capabilities of the material planning and logistics organization.
Spreadsheet interface and mass label and kanban card printing reduce time to set up and deploy
Visibility of delivery system health and performance through live dashboards
Auto-generated and electronically delivered part pick lists
Reusable and electronically validated part plan data
Lower cost and improved capabilities compared to ERP
Visualization of part flows and material handling resource utilization throughout the plant
Proplanner provides a single system for engineers to create a plan for manufacturing. We suggest you review these solutions next:
