Material flow analysis as an important tool

Companies cannot avoid a material flow analysis if they want to work economically. It should therefore be seen as the basis for process optimization. If material is not used and therefore not in flow, no money can be earned with it. Material has to move, and it has to move quickly and directly. A material flow analysis is an important tool for ensuring this and taking the right steps. This enables material flow costs to be determined and, if necessary, redirected to other areas. The positive result of this analysis can therefore only be the saving of costs, time and resources. Incidentally, this should be carried out at regular intervals.

The advantages of the analysis

Production processes never stay the same, they are constantly changing. This change in conditions means that the various areas such as production, intralogistics and storage must be adapted accordingly and weak points identified. The advantages of material flow planning are obvious:

  • Avoidance of delays
  • No unnecessary waiting times
  • Standstill is avoided
  • Reduce production, transportation and storage costs in advance
  • Avoidance or reduction of price increases

The steps of a material flow analysis are usually the same. First, the objectives are formulated, then the expected results are determined. A database is then created. By examining the system processes, an inventory is carried out and evaluated. After documentation and graphical representation, the results are presented. In this way, the deficits become visible and optimization can begin.

The digital twin as a tool for material flow analysis

We also offer the option of optimizing your material flow using a digital twin. This can be realized entirely according to your wishes and supports the classic material flow analysis as a tool. This offers you various advantages, such as

  • Higher data consistency & quality
  • Improved efficiency in assessment & vulnerability analysis
  • Less time required to evaluate the data
  • More efficient consideration of changes

We have specialized in the Plant Simulation software from Siemens and visTABLE from Plavis GmbH. This enables us to take all details and data for the material flow analysis into account and to work according to the current state of the art at all times.
