In industrial production, the degree of complexity, required flexibility and amount of variants is overall increasing. As a result, the available space for materials at the assembly site is becoming scarcer, and material supply disruptions are becoming increasingly cost-intensive.
The cost-effective provision of the right material at the place of need in the required quantity is a growing logistical challenge.
With WSN's Automatic Material Supply Control System (AMS) as an eKanban solution, you are able to meet these challenges.
A network of roller conveyor sensors equipped with latest wireless technology (WSNet) automatically detects the specific material requirements instantly and transmits the material request to the warehouse management system without any delay.
While WSNet Conveyor Sensors reliably report the current occupancy status of SLC (small load carrier) replenishment spots to a WSNet Gateway, our WSNet Call Buttons enable an instant and error-free material request for large load carriers (LLC), at the press of a button.
A clear status visualization of all eKanban carrier locations is provided at any time by the AMS control center software.
