Digitalized intralogistics planning as a solution to your challenges

Flexible and smooth running intralogistics is the basis for an optimally functioning factory. To ensure this, it is necessary to make optimal use of cost drivers such as workers, storage space and operating resources. As part of intralogistics planning, the efficiency, flexibility and supply security of your internal logistics system must be ensured. Complexity drivers such as variant diversity and ever smaller quantities does not make this task any easier.

In intralogistics planning, solutions are generated in the environment of internal logistics in a systematic process and under consideration of objective goals. General tasks are the planning of logistics processes and material flow, investment planning, forecasting of costs and product influence in line with production.

Do you also face the following challenges when optimizing your internal logistics?

  • Volatile markets lead to inaccurate forecasts

    Fluctuating markets make reliable forecasting almost impossible. To counteract this, you must be able to dynamically adjust your intralogistics planning at any time, from delivery and picking to material transport and final assembly. Manually impossible! ipolog enables you to adjust your material flow planning at the push of a button in order to react quickly to fluctuations.

  • Individualized products need flexible processes

    The trend continues to move towards batch size 1. This development unfortunately creates a lot of disruption in internal business processes: picking is becoming more complex, warehouse logistics are becoming confusing, and goods transport is becoming inefficient due to the increasing number of small goods containers. Logistics processes that are no longer manageable mean that bottlenecks persist and optimization potential remains unused. Digital intralogistics planning helps you create transparency and maintain an overview. Our ipolog intralogistics software helps you easliy and quickly plan the required resource depending on the production program and can specifically optimize the lead time.

  • Cost & time pressure

    Cost & time pressure

    Are shorter planning cycles, increasingly complex products and rising cost pressures keeping you up at night? Are your key figures plummeting? Are you always one step behind with process optimization? No wonder, because these challenges can’t be mastered with the usual tools. Digitalizing your logistics processes helps you create transparency about transport costs, gain an overview of internal key fgures and uncover and fix bottlenecks. Become the master of your internal material flow with digital support from ipolog!

  • Unclear internal processes and lack of transparency

    Are there too many cooks in the kitchen? Do countless documents have to be modified and many specialists from different departs have to sign off on logistics planning? This takes lots of extra time and is often confusing for collegues from other departments. Would you like to make things easier and create more transparency across departmental boundaries? This can only be accomplished with digitalized intralogistics. The seamless integration of all information in ipolog creates transparency and enables productive team work with a sustainable improvement of processes.

Discover the potential that lies in intralogistics software solutions

Dynamic and time-delayed demand and delivery fluctuations are hardly controllable with linear calculation approaches – as often used in Excel. ipolog software helps achieve process reliability through simulation and visualization. Your quality of planning increases because bottlenecks in critical time windows can be more quickly detected, transport costs can be more precisely determined, and the entire supply chain (incoming goods, picking, warehousing, flow of goods and material provision) can be holistically represented and visualized. Logistics strategies can be quickly and easily assessed and compared in one step. You now have an overview of your logistics processes, can make targeted recommendations for action and can justify these actions with key performance indicators (such as lead times). Increase your efficiency even across departmental boundaries.

With the integration of all data in one tool, enjoy a platform on which all specialists can productively work together. Warehouse logistics, flow of goods and automatic guides vehicles are no longer planned in indivudal documents and workflows, but holistically in one software. Master the multitude of documents, bundle all information in one place and create a unified concept of your supply chain. The understanding of the big picture of your internal logistics processes will increase potential across the entire supply chain. Begin the optimization of your supply chain now and shorten the „time-to-market“.
