The challenge from Siemens Elektronikwerk, Amberg, Germany
Material transparency on the production floor with SIPLACE Facts
Reiner Thiele, Production Engineering
“One of our goals at Elektronikwerk Amberg is to achieve maximum material transparency in our production. We repeatedly encounter discrepancies between our theoretical and actual inventory numbers, which can easily lead to production stops. We would like to have a solution that lets us locate material in the shortest possible time.”
Our challenge: Does the SIPLACE team achieve maximum material transparency?
SIPLACE Facts is an order and materials management solution that was designed especially for the requirements in electronics production. It seamlessly links the ERP system with the production floor and handles material flows from receiving to line placement as well as returns to the component stock. Stock and consumption data for components and reels as well as their locations in warehouses or on production lines are fully transparent at all times. It also takes storage strategies (FIFO, etc.) and exposure times of MSDs into account.
