Optimized truck traffic on the factory premises
The yard control system for SAP enables the coordinated control of ramp scheduling and gate processing.
The FLX-Yard Management solution supports the process handling from the registration of the truck at the gate, loading and unloading up to leaving the factory premises. The current unloading status and the position of the transport are directly monitored and controlled via a cockpit.
Incoming trucks are entered directly into SAP via a fast entry mask and registered for goods receipt or dispatch. The driver receives a registration slip which allows him to be uniquely assigned to an SAP shipment and processed. In the next step, the planning of the transports to the corresponding loading ramp is carried out. In this way, registered shipments can be identified directly using status tracking. The control and assignment of incoming and outgoing shipments to the available loading ramps is carried out using drag & drop.
The allocation of the loading and unloading orders is carried out by the integrated material guidance system to the industrial trucks in a resource-optimised way. By combining the transport control system with the yard control system, you use the synergies of both SAP add-ons.
With the yard control system, the ramp and gate handling is completely documented in SAP. The focus of this innovative solution is on simplifying ramp and gate handling and the coordinated control of the trucks. The yard control system supports the process handling from the registration of the truck at the gate, through loading and unloading, to the exit from the factory premises. This makes SAP Yard Management easy and fast to administer.
