Automatic Dispatching Management


Challenges

Dispatching and warehouse management doing very well is one of the most important factors in increasing productivity in manufactories. In fact, one of the biggest problems of many firms is not to manage this process correctly. In generally, all processes which being from goods receipt to goods issue are managed manually by firms. The manual management makes tracing goods movement difficult in manufactory and causes to possible production delays.

On the other hand, tracing in goods movement real-timely can prevent possible production delays, material waiting of machine and delivery delays. This real-time tracking is supported with automatic notifications by the system and thus, dispatching in manufactory become stable.

Scenario & Solution

The solution that MSF provides is real-time tracking of dispatching movements from goods receipt to goods issue via notifications. Movement of dispatchers includes to the real-time monitoring and on each transport movement, notifications are created automatically by the system. Dispatchers confirm the notifications and then goods are transported to required locations.

As shown in figure above, first of all, goods receipt notifications are created automatically for  the purchase order of the raw materials and then they are confirmed when they are received to incoming warehouse of the manufactory from the supplier. Now, production order notifications are created automatically for the production order, to make sure that the raw materials are transferred to the workstation at the right time before the production starts. And then, on site transfer notifications are created automatically to notify the dispatching unit when the semi-products are completed.

Notifications are confirmed when the transfers are completed to the other machine. In this steps, if there are any scrap products, scrap notification is created automatically for the defect products to be sent to the scrap warehouse. At the same time, notifications are created automatically when production order is completed so that the final product will be transferred to the final product warehouse.

The last step is that good issue notifications are created automatically for the completed products to be delivered to the customer at the right time.

Results

MSF provides automatic dispatching and real-time monitoring of the products in the manufactory. In addition to these, MSF provides that transport of products without any waiting to required place by dispatchers.

As notifications are created automatically in each dispatching movement, the production area is taken under the control real-timely by the system.

Products are monitored from goods receipt to goods issue real-timely and thus, problems such as delivery delays, production delays and missing material on the workstation are eliminated.

Summary

The entry of the products to the warehouse and exit of the products from the warehouse can be traceable thanks to MSF automatic dispatching. On site tranfers in-firm which based on production order notification and sales order notification are suitable to trace easily.

Using MSF automatic dispatching offers an advantages to see the big picture on all dispatching movements. With real-time and accurate information, dispatching processes are managed automatically.
