On Focus - Discrete Manufacturing

Whitepaper Series: Discrete Manufacturing in the Digital Age  

When it comes to the future, the look at possible process optimizations should not be missing. The software sector has seen rapid development in recent years. Cross-departmental automated process mappings are on the advance in many places. This also applies to the transparency of calculation processes from sales to service.

Use the information provided here and reconsider your processes. Where does digitalization bring you quick success?

Whitepaper: Intelligent logistics optimization

Optimizing the way products are placed in picking areas allows your workers to save time. It lets them pick up multiple orders at the same time, using the quickest way.

Similarly, you can also save time by optimizing order distribution among available vehicles. Both tasks can be accomplished using mathematical algorithms.
