Access to timely information can help manufacturers and producers identify issues before they happen, lower their inventory costs, and potentially reduce capital requirements
Supply chain management is the centralised management of the flow of goods and services and includes all processes that transform input materials into final products, as well as the continued monitoring and support of outgoing products after delivery to the end customer (‘servitisation’).
By effectively managing their supply chain, companies are able to cut excess costs, reduce unproductive time, improve product quality and consistency, and deliver products to the consumer faster with the option of additional supporting services.
Providing an integrated supply chain management platform can become complex when dealing with information generated from multiple sources and sub-systems and in some cases from different companies.
Dematec has substantial experience in understanding our clients’ objectives and evaluating the most suitable methodology and platform for delivering secure and fit-for-purpose solutions for monitoring and managing supply chains both on the input and output ends of production.
Industrial IoT platforms such as Dematec’s D-TEKT™ can provide the connectivity, flexibility, and scalability to enable data to be gathered, aggregated, and managed to deliver a cohesive supply chain management solution.
Implementing a cohesive supply chain management solution provides numerous benefits:
- Improved productivity and maximisation of production capacity
- Compressed production lead times
- Reduced waste of materials and time
- More consistent quality outcomes
- End-to-end traceability of product genealogy
- Optimised resource allocation
- Opportunities for value add to products after delivery to end customers (‘servitisation’)
