Material Handling

Real-time location tracking

Optimal resource utilization and efficient material flow management through real-time tracking data

With INTRANAV’s Real-time Location System you can obtain up to ±10 cm precise location positions for your material handling equipment indoors, monitor the status and condition of your deliveries in the yard, for example during loading and unloading. In connection with ERP/EWM systems, all bookings can be automated and digitalized. Analyze your process efficiency with the tracking data obtained and then improve the routes of your MHE for an optimal use of resources along the supply chain.

Challenges
in material flow management

Indoor & Global Management

  • High search efforts
     

    Material handling equipment is searched for too long due to lack of transparency of all equipment & goods in the hall or yard.

    Goal

    Direct findability of material handling equipment through accurate real-time location information.

  • Restricted reaction times

    Slow or too late interaction during incidents in the production flow.

    Goal

    Permanent real-time monitoring of your material enables timely intervention in the event of incidents and faults in the flow of goods and production.

  • Inconsistent conversion of FIFO & LIFO

    Non-compliance with First In – First Out and Last-In – First Out storage procedures will result, among other things, in exceeding the minimum shelf life.

    Goal

    Compliance, assurance and control of FIFO & LIFO through real-time tracking monitoring of your stored goods, materials and production goods.

Real-time location information
for efficient and transparent material supply

  • 1

    Increase of throughput times

    Fast retrieval of material handling equipment through real-time tracking ensures an increase in processing times and order production speed.

  • 2

    Unlimited transparency

    Continuous tracking of the load carriers (floor rollers, pallet chassis, pallets, containers etc.) and the material handling equipment.

  • 3

    Optimal utilization of resources

    Any transport and storage equipment, as well as goods and means of production can be used efficiently as soon as location information, required transport time and the transport route are known.

Real-time location information about your resource utilization
as a prerequisite for lean production

Load carrier tracking

Indoor & yard management

  • Precise positioning of load carriers (boxes, cartons, pallets, bins, containers) on the shop floor (indoor) and in the yard (outdoor) through live display on the INTRANAV.IO map
  • Reduction of scanning efforts, through Auto-ID / Auto-Recognition
  • Automated triggering of processes (e.g. door opening, warning lights, etc.)
  • Route and vehicle utilisation optimisation
  • Cargo monitoring by INTRANAV SMART sensors
  • Warnings in case of dangerous situations, process interruptions or when driving into unauthorized zones on the premises

Optimization through material flow tracking
with the use of INTRANAV

  • Reduced material and storage costs

    Timely storage and retrieval of goods and materials prevent the loss of value, and shrinkage is also prevented by the transparency of the location.

  • Resource efficiency &
    time saving

    The real-time component also allows the reduction of manual scanning of barcodes (auto-ID )/ auto-detection automates the recording of inventory changes.

  • Process safety

    Freight, load carrier and general process monitoring by INTRANAV SMART sensors and location accuracy of objects on the shop floor.
