With the Panasonic Logiscend System you will have smart material flow, brilliant results.
What is the most common cause of factory inefficiency? The most reported issue isn’t machine uptime, defective materials, operator skill/training, or resource scheduling. It’s material flow management. In simpler terms, the #1 problem impacting output is “getting the right parts to the right place at the right time”.
Material flow problems take many forms: Late replenishment of parts to an assembly line’s stations, slow and error- prone kitting of parts prior to assembly, inability to change the routing of parts in response to machine uptime or operator availability, endless manual counting of parts to maintain even basic WIP inventories and daily productivity metrics, inability to easily flag and handle exceptional conditions such a QA holds and re-work, failures in detecting the delivery of work items to an incorrect manufacturing station or storage area.
In this webinar you will learn about the 5 applications that make up the Panasonic Logiscend System. Picking, Replenishment, Smart Containers, Work Instructions and Asset Tracking. Logiscend was designed to tackle all these issues and more — with one simple and elegant system. In nearly all installations, a Logiscend solution will pay for itself in hard operating expenses within 12 to 18 months. Further, it was designed to operate with minimal disruption to existing processes and without the need for operator training. The Panasonic Logiscend System is new and unique, but it is not unproven. Companies such as Daimler and many others are already using this system on their volume manufacturing lines.
Join to see how you can:
• Reduce material handling labor
• Reduce errors and rework
• ROI in less than 18 months
• Increase WIP inventory accuracy
• Reduce operator training time
• Eliminate line-side downtime
• Save thousands of dollars just from eliminating paper!
We have worked with factories all over the world and found that the #1 problem impacting their output is the same – material flow management. Machine uptime, defective materials, operator skill/training, or resource scheduling aren’t the biggest issues. It’s simply: “getting the right parts to the right place, at the right time". Logiscend was designed with this in mind. If you ask yourself these questions, you will want to attend this webinar.
• Does production regularly come to a near-standstill as issues inevitably pile up?
• Do you often reassign/reschedule routes for work in process?
• Do you manually track down containers to apply new instructions?
• Is managing the count, sequence or status of your WIP inventory a challenge because it’s manual?
• Do you have teams of “runners" that are sent out to the floor to find specific containers for a job or inspection?
Too often, the result is chaos on the factory floor by late afternoon. The Panasonic Logiscend System is the solution to those issues and more. Join us on February 18, 2020 to learn more about the Logiscend Solution and how it can work to solve your material flow problems.
