Experience ideal material resource planning with ipolog
The basis for a smooth production process is the availability of all necessary capacities. If the required material resources and personnel resources are missing, production comes to a standstill. Especially when planning a new factory environment, the data basis is still very imprecise at the beginning, especially for parts and container information. There are also regular adjustments to the warehouse equipment and logistics areas at the beginning. As a planner, you have the task of adapting to constant changes in order to be able to make statements about the use of resources during capacity planning.
Your factory planning must be constantly adjusted, taking into account logistics areas. In doing so, you must stay in budget without waste and without overloading employees. As a project manager, you will quickly reach your limits. Find out how our ipolog software makes your work much easier and more efficient compared to widely used solutions such as Excel!
With ipolog, a statement about the investment costs incurred can be made right at the beginning of the project planning. Subsequent price changes for resources can be adjusted with little effort and the required investment costs for the planned factory environment are updated at the push of a button.
With the help of ipolog, you can optimize the use of your capacities and simplify your resource management. If, for example, the production program changes, this scenario can be simulated and the changed resource usage analyzed. Production processes are viewed holistically. The software makes it possible to easily reschedule capacities and achieve optimal utilization.
Why is optimized resource planning so important for your company?

ipolog helps you gain confidence in the midst of uncertainty. Transportation requirements can be calculated throughout the day with ipolog. At no time- even during peak periods- will too few transportation resources be available in the planning scenario under consideration. ipolog supports planning with a comprehensive visual representation of resource requirements for transportation resources throughout the day. This is a much better approach than long Excel spreadsheets.
The demand for transportation resources can vary depending on the time of day and order requirements. During planning the question often arises if currently used resources are still enough when the production program is increased. With ipolog, changes in the production program can be simulated and tested for feasibility if products per day are increased. In addition, an optimization and capacity evaluation of current planning scenarios can be performed.
The required resources in the respective planning scenario are always kept in mind with ipolog. Both transportation resources and logistics equipment are considered.
Get a good feeling about your resource planning with software optimization
Resource planning is more than just an overview of required resources in a certain area. Resource planning requires a holistic view of material flow, quantities and layout. The three essential components for the statement of resource requirements can already be considered in the early planning phases with ipolog.
The transportation resource requirements are displayed at any time in corresponding evaluations. Depending on the planning phase, various analysis options in ipolog provide a rough overview of the demand for transportation resources in individual shifts. For a closer look at the plan, a Transportation Gantt display of the concrete transport orders can be used.
In additional to the number-based evaluation of the transportation resources required, the 3D display supports the planning process with a visual evaluation of the traffic volume in the planning area. The traffic volume for a respective scenario can also be analyzed in 2D using a heat map and intersection analysis.
The effects of line balancing can be directly seen after import into ipolog. The effects on transportation can also be seen through individual evaluation. The required logistics equipment is also displayed, and the update takes place directly after changes are made to the input values for resource usage.
Our solutions for improved resource planning
Interested to learn more? Optimize your factory environment in just a few steps:
1. Import your data
Begin with the importation of resources and available logistics data (typically from Excel).
2. Plan material flows
Then the direct planning of material flows can take place. This allows for the calculation of resource requirements.
3. Play through scenarios
The effects on resource requirements due to changes in the production program can be examined.
4. Optimize resources
Now the production is ready for resource optimization.
In additional to planning and optimizing resource requirements, ipolog also assists in warehouse planning and material flow planning . The effects of changes on resource requirements are always immediately visible. This includes personnel planning , production planning , and material flow planning.
Are you ready to take the next step in your resource planning? We can help you optimize your resources already in the planning phase.
