VISIBILITY THROUGHOUT THE SUPPLY CHAIN

  • Full transparency of material flows, capacity availability and stock levels
  • Integrated resource monitor
  • Always the latest data with help of direct integration to the data sources (e.g. SAP)
  • Automatic aggregation to visualize the most important information regardless of consideration level

Lack of transparency in supply chain operations often causes inefficiencies. Consolidation potential, stocks, requirements and supply options are observed locally and separately. W2MO enables complete visibility throughout the entire supply chain, efficiently minimizing the risks and elements of uncertainty, reducing the stocks and helps to take the optimal decision in terms of costs and capacity. The integrated resource monitor helps to achieve an overview of stock and capacity. Shortages or overstocks as well as bottlenecks are made visible in all the processes. Transparency is the key to efficiency, no matter if there is a central supply chain controlling or all the decisions are made locally.

OPTIMIZED MATERIAL FLOW PLANNING AND CONTROLLING

  • Proven heuristics and sophisticated algorithms for the optimization of the material flow control
  • Detailed analysis and comparison of planning scenarios
  • Consideration of multi-level BOMs and material-specific production capacities
  • Easy download and quick processing of the results
material_flow_simulation_optimization

Complex cost and capacity structures, interactions and restrictions between individual players bring major challenges for the optimization of materials and products flows in logistics networks. W2MO calculates optimized product flows on an order basis and simulates the resulting expenses, workloads and stocks. Multi-level bills of materials and material-specific production capacities are considered, if necessary. Extensive analysis possibilities enable the quick identification of cost drivers. W2MO planning tools range from an interactive heuristics-based approach up to sophisticated optimization algorithms. The quality of the planning is compared and ensured by various scenarios and planning alternatives. Evaluations and visualizations can then be easily integrated into presentations. Therefore, stakeholders from all areas can have access to the results.

FREIGHT COST CONTROLLING

  • Mapping of multi-dimensional freight tariffs
  • Permanent monitoring of transport costs
  • Selection of the cheapest shipping rate per transport
material_flow_simulation_optimization

The cheapest shipping rate will be chosen out of all the existing transport contracts for each package. This selection does not only consider equivalent shipping rates but is also able to calculate and directly compare the resulting costs of weight, volume or distance-based tariffs in different zones and even more complex tariff structures, e.g.: number of parking places or required loading meter. The calculated freight costs per package can be compared with the actual costs.

FREIGHT OPTIMIZATION AND PACKAGE / LOAD BUILDER

  • Optimized pallets and package building
  • Creation of the packaging schemes in 3D
  • Consideration of relevant product master data, e.g. stacking factors, compressibility and fragility
  • Cascaded packing of the cartons starting from the pallet up to the Truck Load Builder

Mapping of the cheapest possible packages and pallets is a difficult and mathematically complex task.

On the one hand, the shipping volume should be minimized (to avoid shipping “air”), on the other hand the stability of pallets, boxes and containers should be considered as well. Based on the given restrictions, W2MO automatically calculates how packages have to be constructed and allows the entire step-by step visualization of the packaging scheme in 3D. It not only considers the exact dimensions but also criteria like stacking factors, compressibility and fragility. The calculation of a packaging scheme can be performed cascading over several stages. Articles are packed in the shipping containers; the formed packages are stacked on pallets – these eventually form a truckload.
