LOGISTICS MANAGER SUITE brings together all of the products developed and integrated by a-SIS into 3 main functional sections:
- Supply Chain Management: decision-making layers which allow the control of multi-site organisation, the allocation of orders to the right warehouse, as well as the management of supplies and the optimisation of stock levels. .
- Warehouse Management: warehouse control from goods-in to dispatch..
- Flow Management: the optimisation of transport flows, with complete solutions which can be applied just as well to "loaders" as to "transport organiser" profiles.
Why LOGISTICS MANAGER SUITE ?
The fundamental idea is the conviction that the logistic systems, given the environmental and energy-saving preoccupations, will be increasingly multi-site and hierarchical.
The Supply Chain’s information systems will have to find the balance between platform organisation, stock distribution and flow optimisation to fulfil the market’s demands and service quality aims.
Logistics Manager Suite: at the core of the Supply Chain Execution
Shortening delivery deadlines, increasing the number of references, product heterogeneity, frequent changes in managed references, very low error tolerance, fluctuating or seasonal activity, respecting quality norms and standards... These are our stakes, whether in an activity growth context or the development of your logistic strategy. The optimisation of physical storage, to reduce the need in working capital
Relying on an extended functional coverage and the added value from the best sectorial practices, our solutions enable you to progress in concrete terms on 5 performance axes:
Physical storage optimisation, to reduce the working capital need
|The first mandatory condition for optimized operation of the logistic site is good storage organisation starting with clever product dispatch at goods-in. This important step must take the features defined for each product into account based on a set of storage rules which is completely customised by parameters, a slotting tool and ABC analysis.|
The optimisation of the picking area is also important. Our tool for picking layout allows optimised positioning of the logistic units. So taking the geographic constraints and each product's time parameters into account and allocating each product to different picking locations, our solutions optimise the picking and balance the workload for the different picking locations.
Productivity optimisation, synonymous with financial performance
|The warehouse's overall performance depends on efficient well-designed processes. The optimisation starts with the reception of the goods, for instance by scheduling bay activity and by a pre-planned integration of the goods coming in. Once the productidentified in the warehouse, the automatic and efficient management of the stock movements allows the optimization of the operator movements.|
Order fulfilment is a key process and is secured by an adapted supply management ensuring supply without interruption and by a load simulation tool for launching by wave and by box. Our WMS also features activity balancing, resource optimisation by area and the scheduling of transport operations.
Our numerous pre-packing and slotting optimisation methods ensure our systems correspond to sophisticated split case picking. Furthermore we offer an innovative range of assistance tools from voice solutions to pick-to-light displays to increase the picking speed.
Quality improvement, a real advantage over competitors
|Overall quality is primarily based on a complete and well organized product database. The products must be efficiently checked at goods-in including full features and strict suppleir quality control. The conformity of the stock is also important for good warehouse operation. This is ensured by regularly stock reports and continuous stock input and output control.|
Another important point for any logistic manager is the reduction of the picking error rate which is ensured by the real time control of the operations and checking procedures at the end of the line. And the final point for picking quality is the dispatch load check.
multi-level traceability, synonymous with safety
|Traceability is a critical point in certain fields of activity and presents two levels: |
- Product traceability: products are traced by batches and serial numbers facilitating the product recall;
- Event traceability: the historisation of operations enables you to have available performance analyses and a full audit trail (GAMP and FDA 21 CFR PART 11 norms), whether in the warehouse or during the deliveries to final customers.
Activity improvement using decision-making control, to improve anticipation
Our solutions allow you to monitor activity for each logistic process: quantities which were actually received, changes in stock status, dispatches carried out, transport activity monitoring, deliveries received... At any time, it is possible to display the stock content by product code, the occupancy rate by location, each movement’s general history or transport mission planning.
Numerous functionalities allow you to plan human and material resources, to organise carrier allocation, to simulate transport costs and to allocate your own vehicles to delivery missions. Using dedicated interfaces, the detailed monitoring of operators’, pickers’ and drivers’ activity takes place in real time.
