Logistics flow management
To make the right decision, you need to have the right information. Simcore supports you in the analysis of your flows.
Flow management consists of directing all successive activities carried out during the fabrication of a product or its distribution. This movement of materials/components/subsets/works in progress/finished products throughout the fabrication and distribution chain form the flow.
In a factory, when all of the fabricated products go through the same production steps, there is one single production line and thus one flow. However, we found ourselves with products A, B and C going through a series of different activities at some point in their fabrication for each of them, we have three production flows in total. A flow is also called a value stream.
The aim of this flow management is the identification, the analysis and the decrease of all kind of waste
The objective is to separate activities with value-added and with no value-added (from the point of view of the clientele or the need to be met). Activities with no value-added (origin of loss and waste in the process) are then removed. That decrease of waste will eventually become a competitive advantage for the company.
SIMCORE’s mission is to help you by providing its skill to put in place and use decision-making tools and methods.
We will assist you in the precise definition of your issue from the flow mapping to the specifications’ drafting.
