Shifting to next-generation web-based architectures to improve UX, inventory accuracy, performance and costs
Managing factory or warehouse logistics occurs in various areas and levels, requiring multiple types of support to efficiently track inventory. Using Opcenter™ Intra Plant Logistics (IPL) software, which is part of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform of software, hardware and solutions, provides a just-in-time (JIT) methodology called kanban and changeover.
