Getting the right parts to the right place at the right time is essential in any factory. The Panasonic Logiscend Replenishment Application ensures your operators never run out of parts at any point in the process.
Parts replenishment is a key function in any manufacturing operation. The Panasonic Logiscend System allows an operator to “call” for parts or services by pressing a button on the VIEW Tag, having the tag “auto call” via an optional sensor, or ordering parts with a tablet and immediately receiving a response via a “call sent” message right on the tag. The warehouse receives the message and executes the pick. Delivery is then scheduled via configurable routes and instruction is sent to the driver for pickup. The entire system is wireless, enabling low installation costs and quick reconfiguration for a dynamic factory.
Standard work: No training or re-training necessary
This simple and intuitive system includes visual indicators and instruction right on the VIEW Tag for the operator, warehouse and driver. Visual instruction and automatic driver routes require little to no training – providing for ease of use and deployment.
- Automated call is triggered when rack or bins are empty, eliminating opportunity for error in parts call
- Eliminates need for manual replenishment flags and material handler “searching”
- Increases employee retention rates with highly simplified system (less training required)
Monitor KPIs: Manager & driver dashboards
Create data never before available for visibility into individual calls, picks and deliveries, helping you to understand pinch-points to ensure efficiency and opportunities for process improvement in real-time.
- Analyze bottlenecks to improve throughput
- Balance processes and eliminate waste (Muda)
- Connects easily to existing ERP/MES/WMS systems
Re-configurability: Simple wireless deployment
The Logiscend system requires no wired infrastructure so it is easy to reconfigure or add in a part change on the fly – no IT involvement is necessary.
- Dynamic supermarket capability
- No hard-wired infrastructure is required, easy to reconfigure zones
- Reduces capital purchases, fewer racks and containers necessary
