Logistics planning in ipolog – the way of the future
Your logistics structures need to be designed in such a way that you can master the increasing challenges of the market. But an increasing number of variants, smaller quantities and price & cost pressure create a complexity that is hard to overlook. Achieve decisive competitive advantages by advantageously linking functional areas and ensuring your logistic process interactions are optimized.
This is how our ipolog software supports you. Learn more.
The ideal design of production and logistics processes, efficient intralogistics and standardized delivery forms are central factors for the success of a company.
We offer an integrated logistics planning software for optimal and efficient logistics planning results. ipolog is a powerful software tool for integrated digital intralogistics planning. ipolog enables you to design logistics systems in an optimal and efficient manner.
Why is it so important to improve your logistics planning?
A company-specific design of internal logistics processes and systems is crucial to ensure efficiency, flexibility and supply security. The main driver of complexity is the variety of variants and the resulting number of parts. This means that logistics must be flexible, and cost drivers such as space and operating costs must be minimized.
Ideal logistics planning ensures that the right parts are provided at the right place, at the right time, in the right quantity and with the optimal resource requirements. It is important to be able to analyze fluctuations throughout the day and the different requirements within any given period.
Do you also face the following challenges in your logistics planning?
Planning difficulties due to volatile markets
Volatile markets make forecasts inaccurate, which makes logistics planning difficult. ipolog helps you to plan flexible systems that allow you to react to fluctuations and make dynamic adjustments.
Individualized products need flexible logistics
Industry trends are moving more towards the individualization of products. As a result, logistics must be flexible in order to respond to changing requests. Optimization in ipolog allows you to adjust the required resources quickly and easily.
Shorter cycles and increasing cost pressure
You have to manage shorter planning cycles with increasingly complex products and increasing cost pressure. Start your logistics optimization through digital support in our ipolog software.
Experience the added value of logistics planning supported by software:
Fluctuations in demand over time cannot be optimized with linear calculation approaches (such as Excel). With support from software such as ipolog, you can digitally reinforce your planning (e.g. through visualizations or simulations) and increase the quality of planning, since errors can be detected much earlier.
You can also achieve an increase in efficiency through structured planning processes, consistent data and better communication between the planners involved. This can help shorten the “time to market".
Logistics optimization done right with ipolog:
Our optimization software offers you a wide range of functions for almost all areas of logistics planning. ipolog offers a simple and intuitive user interface with a structured workflow which provides an overview of the planning process. No other tool on the market provides such a comprehensive range of functions.
See the advantages of logistics planning in ipolog at a glance:
From Start to Finish
ipolog software accompanies you in all phases of planning and optimizes your logistics planning.
ipolog software performs calculations based on dynamic values instead of just average values. This means the line-back calculation is based on a continuously changing production program.
3D visualization provides a better communication basis and planning security.
A predefined, structured workflow ensures better standardization within the company.
Merging of Seperate Departments
With ipolog, the often-separate assembly and logistics departments become one value-adding unit. The continuity between data and processes can become a reality thanks to a common digitalization tool.
Intuative User Interface
Many experts optimize production logistics using many different tools (Excel, Visio, PowerPoint), each of which requires training. ipolog combines different areas of expertise into one software that is easy to learn and intuitive to use.
Five simple steps to ideal logistics planning:
It doesn’t take long to easily optimize your intralogistics in ipolog. Prepare your data in five simple steps and quickly reach your goals:
1. Initial analysis of production processes including production logistics
Resources, process and time modules, shift plans, part data, production data, Excel spreadsheets
2. Mapping the layout
3. Modeling material flows and allocation of parts
4. Calculating resource requirements
5. Evaluation of costs and personnel requirements
We would love to have a nonbinding conversation with you about your project and unique circumstances. We are eager to use our software to help revolutionize your logistics planning.
