Wireless networks for information flow

How are moving components and load carriers to be integrated in the company information flow? A wireless-based automated material requisition system is available for just this task and monitors stock precisely anywhere within the (material) flow.

Remote supply replenishment - Integration of AGV, dollies and eKanban racks

Why is an automated requisition system necessary if you already have an ERP or WMS? A good question. It is necessary if stock levels are to be managed not approximately, but precisely.

Closing the gap in the information flow - Live monitoring of material flow with wireless network

Farewell to the conveyor belt: under this motto, multiple forward-thinking companies have reorganised their material flow. Stationary conveyors have been replaced by mobile and thus flexible units, such as AGV, tugger trains or mobile eKanban racks. The prerequisite for such advances is a new approach to information flow – and the logical way to solve this is wireless technology.

The wireless backbone supporting communication

When automating intralogistics, the guiding principle has to be: information flow before material flow – the latter always being mobile. With a wireless network, processes are represented comprehensively and precisely at all times.

Transparency down to the last metre

MATERIAL FLOW – At Volkswagen in Dresden, "transparent manufacturing" is completely real, as more and more production companies now realise the principle of complete transparency, at least at the level of material flow. A wireless automated material requisition system closes the (information) gap down to the last metre.

Sensors and antennas are best when integrated

In a project by the cluster of excellence it´s OWL, steute is currently testing the integration of sensors and antennas in the enclosures of control systems and user interfaces for industrial, as well as medical applications. A combination of laser-direct structuring and additive manufacturing is being used. The results are extremely promising.

Stock monitoring: remote materials requisition for efficient intralogistics

Uninterrupted monitoring of stock within the in-house material flow is a prerequisite if replenishments are to be needs-based. The usual enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems have some gaps which can be closed by opting for a remote automated materials requisition system.

Remotely controlled transparency - Towards the digital shop floor

When optimising in-house processes, a remotely controlled shop floor information system can be the solution to improving inventory management, e.g. of assembly components. It enables the complete inventory within eKanban systems and the "supermarkets" supplying the factory to be digitally visualised. The system is very versatile, not least due to its wide variety of available wireless sensors.

Integration in information flow - Material supply: transparency from start to finish

Sensors have an important role to play in material requirements planning (MRP) for e.g. assembly lines. They detect the current stock status at the various assembly points and can then send a signal triggering needs-based material flow management. This works particularly well when the sensors transmit their signals within a wireless system developed especially for this purpose.

Wireless-based eKanban for the shop floor and logistics

The basis for uninterrupted integration of physical objects in state-of-the-art factories is a system which is perfectly adapted to the application in question. Facilitated by a wireless network, such systems enable data and information to be captured and made available to downstream intelligence. As real-life examples have already shown: investing in a wireless automated materials requisition system can prove cost-effective within just a few months.

Remote material requirements planning using the pull principle

The replenishment of assembly components not in the managed inventory is a good place to start when digitalising and optimising the shop floor. For this task, a wireless-based automated materials requisition system is available to users. The cost and effort of installation and initial operation are manageable, the tools exists, and the benefits are considerable.

eKanban systems: remote replenishment

Flexible production and intralogistics requires an information flow which is also flexible. Cabled communication reaches its limits very quickly. Wireless networks are the ideal solution here, for example with eKanban systems such as those offered by companies like steute.
