Overcome supply issues in electronics manufacturing with intelligent intralogistics

With an increase in supply chain issues and unpredictable lead times, without an intelligent inventory control system, electronic manufacturers face a lot of problems. The operational costs of inefficient logistic processes can significantly impact the profitability of producing the products.

Siemens provides a range of smart capabilities for material handling across the factory. Introducing the Siemens Intra Plant Logistics (IPL) solution, a smart, innovative technology that enables companies to coordinate production and logistics to boost productivity and stay on top of the competition

The importance of material management in electronics manufacturing

The way material is managed today often leads to efficient flow across the factory, limiting line performance because materials are not where they need to be at the correct time. The need for added physical storage space, especially when some materials and components require specialized storage with visibility to expiration dates, also adds to overhead costs.

By improving material management, electronics manufacturers increase their flexibility, agility, profitability and product quality to gain a competitive advantage in the industry. Siemens IPL increases agility through just-in-time (JIT) and just-in-sequence (JIS) operations to ensure materials are in the right place at the right time.

Smart intralogistics: meeting tight deadlines in electronics manufacturing

Smart capabilities enable sustained competitiveness and a way to meet tight deadlines. Siemens offers a broad range of smart capabilities for material handling across the factory:

  • Real-time inventory management

  • Setup verification

  • Inbound/outbound management

  • Replenishment

  • Storage management

  • Transport management

The key benefits of intralogistics for electronics manufacturing

More efficient inventory management solutions enable companies to:

  • Optimize inventory costs with a fast ROI (return on investment) and low TOC (total ownership cost)

  • Reduce material quality issues by maximizing product quality and material safety

  • Increase production performance through increased flexibility and agility

  • Increase logistics operational efficiency by reducing labor costs and boosting efficiency.
