These customers are already successfully optimizing their production planning with the ipolog software. Read our success stories here and find out exactly how ipoog has helped to make logistics and assembly planning efficient.
What can ipolog be used for?
Logistics planning in ipolog creates transparency, improves capacity utilization and helps acheive a smooth material flow. Tugger trains, forklifts and AGVs can be automatically clocked.
Our software allows for the visualization of processes and material provision (assembly lines or individual work stations) directly in the factory layout complete with a worker path simulation.
Material Supply Planning
Reduce the required planning time for material supply through intelligent algorithms and transparent visualization in 2D and 3D. This includes material supply to machines, production lines or individual workstations in assembly. Avoid waste and optimize picking!
The software in numbers – how to optimize your production planning
An accelerated and structured planning process sets standards and shortens project duration by up to 30 percent.
Utilization of operational staff and resources in assembly and logistics can be increased by up to 20 percent.
Minimizing worker walkways in assembly and picking get rid of up to 50 percent of non-value-adding activities.
Required effort for modifications
Adjust changes at the touch of a button: It is no longer necessary for several people to adjust a multitude of documents in Excel, Visio or CAD.
What does planning look like in ipolog?
Joint preparation of the planning premises
Simulate & visualize scenarios
Do you also face the following challenges?
I never know what the effect of a changed production program will be
New senarios can be simulated and evaluated in ipolog even after the new production program has been imported. With our software you can simulate the next day in detail or roughly plan the next year.
It takes me hours to update all files and lists even for small changes
ipolog integrates your data to provide you with a comprehensive understand of your assembly processes and material flow. Changes can be easily imported and the effects can be viewed immediately.
I don't know what my material flow looks like - I can't visualize or quantify it
You can create one-click Sankey diagrams as well as evaluate various material flows in ipolog to accurately quantify production logistics requirements.
I have to search for hours to find data for management reports
In ipolog all data is bundled into one tool. No more annoying asking around and searching. Results are clearly arranged in evaluation modules so that everything is available at a glance. You can simulate processes and visualize them in 3D to provide management and colleagues with a better overview.
If I don't want to use average values, I reach my limit with Excel
Simulate different scenarios in ipolog and compare them with each other, all on the basis of detailed values. A concrete production program with the sequence of orders is taken into accout to make the effects on production and logistics visible.
I lack KPIs and visualizations that help me make decisions and improve processes
Thanks to the detailed key figures and 3D visualization in ipolog, you can immediately recognize bottlenecks. The stocks on the line, parts per container and worker paths can be adjusted to reduce material handling costs. Furthermore, material flow can be simulated and delivery routes and material zones can be optimized as part of logistics planning.
Each department works with different tools
ipolog provides you with the opportunity to plan across departments because all data is collected into one tool.
I never know what impact a change to the model mix will have on the assembly and assembly workers
Immediately see where bottlenecks are located. You can compare different scenarios in ipolog to preview planned changes and avoid negative outcomes.
