Nulogy releases new capability to automate materials replenishment on manufacturing production lines
Nulogy's new capability helps automate the flow of materials on the production floor, preventing downtime and detrimentally effected customer service levels.
TORONTO — Nulogy, a provider of agile supply chain solutions, announced the release of Just-In-Time Line Replenishment on Feb. 10, a new capability meant to empower contract packagers, contract manufacturers, and value-added third-party logistics providers to fulfill customer orders with less labor overhead and line downtime, resulting in higher levels of operational efficiency, profitability, and customer service.
With the rapid pace and constant demands associated with contract packaging and manufacturing operations, labor costs and line downtime due to material shortages can hinder business growth and customer service levels. Nulogy’s new capability helps automate the flow of materials on the production floor, preventing downtime and detrimentally effected customer service levels.
“Nulogy’s Just-In-Time Line Replenishment capability is the latest innovation in our mission to bring agility and automation to contract packaging and manufacturing operations,” said Jason Tham, CEO, Nulogy. “These efficiencies on the floor translate into reduced costs, increased profitability, and stronger, healthier supply chains—which are needed now more than ever.”
This capability automatically triggers pallet pick requests based on space available in the line staging area, inventory on the line, and line consumption rate. With this new capability, contract packagers, contract manufacturers and value-added third-party logistics providers can:
- Reduce line downtime due to material shortages
- Reduce overhead labor
- Increase floor space available for revenue-generating activities
- Prioritize forklift traffic and work queues
By leveraging Nulogy’s Just-in-Time Line Replenishment capability, external supply chain providers may be able to efficiently manage their resources for more streamlined operations.
