Whether it's paper, foil, metal or textiles: such materials are produced on reels for the most varying applications. And the companies doing the further processing have to take into account a variety of product characteristics already when purchasing. For this reason, a detailed labelling of each reel is indispensable for controlling all the subsequent processing steps.
Unit information is simply not enough. Lengths, qualities, widths, weights, material thickness, reel and core diameter – these and numerous other details are a prerequisite for guaranteeing consistent thorough process security. From Purchasing to Logistics and Processing on to Sales: All workflows are controlled and interlocked seamlessly based on the detailed information.
The requirements for labelling in coil handling are so complex that currently customary standard ERP software usually is not able to provide a solution for this specific production area.
The Avantgarde high-tech solution for Dynamics AX was expanded to comprehensively cater to the needs of reel-processing companies. The module for coil handling contains intelligent functions for the reel logistics as well as controlling and significantly optimising production workflows. So, for instance, primary and secondary paths are defined and several production activities take place in one pass. The functionality of this unique solution from Avantgarde is impressive. It was developed on the basis of many years of experience and a comprehensive understanding of the special requirements of coil handling.
