Staying competitive in manufacturing requires the optimization of JIT (just-in-time) supply chain networks that achieve end-to-end visibility of transactions and the corresponding data. The requirement to increase capacity within the same physical plant means that manufacturers must innovate and work with best-in-class technology to ensure sustainability. This creates fluid movement of raw materials and finished products, while at the same time reducing labor expense through the enhanced capability to plan and optimize effectively. Any delay causing critical items to be out of sequence is a costly mistake and is to be avoided. Exotrac’s Real-Time Yard Management Solution (YMS) facilitates the proactive planning and orchestration required within the manufacturing campus. The system combines cloud-based software with leading-edge wireless technology to achieve real-time visibility of all transactions and assets.
Visibility extends from the manufacturing campus to seaport, rail yard, production and distribution facilities. All constituent groups view the transactions and activity being conducted throughout the manufacturing operation in real time. This visibility provides the management team the ability to immediately react to issues that may impact the efficient flow of JIT (just-in-time) raw materials into the production facility. Exotrac ensures that the yard operation becomes the portal through which our customers command and control the flow of raw materials, work-in-progress (WIP), and finished products into and out of the manufacturing facility — all in real-time with actionable visibility. We work with our manufacturing customers to support their efforts by providing an effective yard management system, supporting their goals and expectations of end-to-end supply chain visibility. Our Yard Management Solution allows them to proactively plan, organize and optimize their supply chain. The result is supply chain efficiency, cost reduction and high level customer experience at an economical price
“ Exotrac helped us increase our production line throughput because we can now visualize and prioritize critical shipments that are necessary to keep our lines going. Being able to see what is on the property and plan for shipments that had not yet arrived gave us the competitive edge we were looking for. ”
