RedPrairie has begun integrating its own Build-To-Order product's in-line sequencing and work order processing capabilities into its Warehouse Management System (WMS). The new updates support production line requirements, improving efficiency and accuracy for build-to-order manufacturers. These and other enhancements within the current release of RedPrairie's Supply Chain Execution suite integrate work orders, production information, and process flows from raw materials receipt through distribution, improving efficiency and accuracy. The new WMS additions allow several work orders to be allocated, scheduled, and system-directed across multiple work stations. Labor standards, which improve distribution workforce performance, have also been extended to the production line.
RedPrairie's Build-To-Order solution provides in-sequence parts and component delivery to production lines, error proofing and traceability, shop floor integration with material handling equipment, and outbound delivery sequencing. This reduces lead times and inventory costs, improves on-time delivery, and enhances lean manufacturing efforts.
The new release also adds to the WMS's vendor-managed inventory capabilities, improving visibility and control over inventory hand-off from supplier to customer. The new updates include support for the role third-party logistics providers often play in the process, tracking supplier information down to the item level, offering time-appropriate ownership transfer and rules-based allocation algorithms by supplier.
