Logistics network planning, scheduling and controlling of perishable materials, raw materials and products – often linked to a complex product range design – is definitely challenging. A shelf life planning software can help to simplify the management & planning of these material and product groups. The existing SAP system serves both, as the primary data source and the server of the application.
In the case of perishable goods, incorrect planning can very quickly cause major financial losses. But not only that: the destruction of valuable raw materials and products – often foodstuffs or pharmaceutical products – is also unjustifiable from a sustainability point of view.
In addition, there are increasing legal requirements, e.g. regarding the traceability of food, which require a very high degree of transparency across the entire material and information flow.
With the help of the ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench Shelf Life Cockpit, you can quickly and easily gain an overview of all critical stocks. All this without additional infrastructure and separate data storage. As the integrated warning system indicates the expiry of material stocks, a reliable capable to promise (CTP) is possible at any time. In addition, material quantities that have already expired are removed from the material balance of available inventories and are no longer planned for further use.
