Challenges

Standard - Out of the box functionality

One of the biggest traps in logistics is being limited to "standard".

Out of the box (isle-) functionality will leave you with an inflexible, non-integrated and non-evolving system.
Each company handles its "flow of goods" in its own manner, with different requirements for the different steps in the flow.

With this in mind ENGIE Fabricom started developing a new logistic approach about 20 years ago…

 

Flexible – Modular – Configurable – Integrated

ERP on TOP

Everything you buy or sell starts within your ERP system. Suppliers, customers, materials & products, pricing agreements, stock information, delivery and shipment information … are all known and managed within your ERP system.

But how much human effort, time and paperwork is still related to “logistics” not integrated into or linked with your ERP and Process Control System?

What about tracking and tracing of all these steps?

PCS/DCS in CONTROL

Production is well managed and controlled by your Process or Dedicated Control Systems. Orders are exchanged with ERP, and transferred into production data. Production planning is well done.

But what to do when the flow of raw materials into your production facility stagnates? Can you be sure that production has sufficient input during the week-end?

What if the production quality decreases due to a bad delivery batch? Where did it came from? Can I detect this earlier and stop the input flow? Can I manage this directly in the field?

What when a certain customer postpones its goods-pickup and blocks my outgoing silos? How can I optimize the utilization of my silos?

What to do when I have 50 silo’s to manage and 200 trucks to load, but not enough resources to handle this?

Realtime integration

What if … all my questions and issues could be solved? In real-time? With one system?

ENGIE Fabricom can offer its Logistics Management System. A modular soft- and hardware solution framework.

It’s not STANDARD nor OUT OF THE BOX, but built on open standards using Microsoft Technology.

During the years our LMS solution grew in functionality and modularity, being able to interface to whatever system or solution available on the market today.
LMS is the middleware between your ERP and your Process System.
