Always at the forefront of technological innovations, and responding directly to the needs of our customers, we are delighted to introduce Supply Chain Reporting to our PreBilt portfolio. The solution provides live reports from SAP and displays key data on a wallboard, helping managers and employees alike by increasing warehouse productivity and processing efficiency, while decreasing downtime.
Supply Chain Reporting was developed following a customer request for an order screen in its staging for production area. Components for production were picked from different areas of the warehouse, and a visual marker was used to identify the components which were ready for production. This was proving a slow process, leading to time delays, which in turn affected production rates and so the customer required a more efficient solution.
The additional capability within PreBilt takes the form of a wallboard which displays live customised reports from SAP. The data can be refreshed manually, as well as automatically in easily adjustable intervals, with the last refresh time visible, ensuring the information displayed is consistently up to date and accurate. Furthermore, the screen display can be configured to be as simple or as detailed as required.
Supply Chain Reporting serves as an easy way to provide everybody on site with key operational data simultaneously, benefiting the warehouse operatives and the business. Managers are kept informed of stock position and outstanding tasks to be completed, allowing for processes to run smoothly and efficiently. The solution also enables warehouse operatives to complete tasks as soon as they are ready, minimising downtime.
Commenting on this latest development, our product manager, Geoff Gray, said: “We are continually responding to customer feedback and looking at ways in which we can further improve supply chain processes for our customers. We are delighted to be able to enhance our PreBilt portfolio with Supply Chain Reporting, which provides live updates displayed in the warehouse, ensuring tasks get completed without delays, enhancing processing efficiency and warehouse productivity.”
