OUR SOLUTION


We have developed from scratch a Digital Twin in order to:

  • simulate all possible future scenarios, obtaining precise calculation of lead times, service levels and saturations;
  • validate the re-layout/material flow hypothesis before any intervention;
  • find the optimal configuration in terms of allocated FTEs and shifts for any possible demand which yield maximal throughput.

We have also designed an OCR-based real-time digital traceability and jobs scheduling system, integrated with the existing ERP, for guaranteeing the optimal scenario in case of unpredictable demand and jobs priorities.
