Logistics Wiki is an application that allows multiple teams to share information and work together to ensure that goods arrive and leave site in an organised fashion.
Logistics Wiki allows a single source of information to be shared across multiple teams in a controlled fashion so that it is easy to see, easy to change ( where authorised ) and easy to add to.
Logistics Wiki integrates closely with Operations Wiki but it can also be used as a standalone system.
Logistics Wiki helps you to :
- Reduce cost & risk
- Enhance control
- Increase Competitiveness
One of the most useful interfaces in Logistics Wiki is the calendar view. This view shows when deliveries are due and can be colour coded by product type.
The daily view is typically displayed on a large monitor in the control room and the weekly view is the preferred view for the Logistics/S&OP team. Clicking on an entry on the calendar opens the associated records.
Easy Modification of schedules
One of the key benefits of Logistics Wiki is that information can be updated very quickly. An authorised person ( typically the Logistics / S&OP team ) can simply drag the delivery from one slot to another. This updates all of the screens and keeps an audit trail to show who made the change.
The Logistics Wiki is all about teams working together and sharing information. To do this well data needs to be collected on simple forms which can be easily changed over time e.g. if there is a safety initiative on PPE then collecting some information on PPE can be easily added to the delivery paperwork.
Capturing Written Notes
Although much more information is now electronic an important element is still paper and will continue to be on paper for some time to come. The application supports the use of paper forms by providing simple schemes to attached scanned documents or photographs pf documents which is increasingly common.
Dashboards and Reporting
The application has dashboards showing performance. Users can click on these dashboards to open the underlying data. The application also integrates with Excel to automatically generate configurable charts and tables.
Secure On-Premises or Cloud deployment
The application is robust and secure. User permissions can be managed from within the application or can be linked to your Microsoft credentials. The application is available as a browser application or as an IBM Lotus Notes application and can be deployed within your firewalls as an on premises solution or via the cloud as a Software as a Service ( SaaS ) solution.
The application significantly improves efficiency by allowing information to be quickly recalled and workflow processes to be completed faster.
Improved Sharing and Competitiveness
The application allows information to be shared across not just teams but also plants, sites and organisations allowing the whole organisation to benefit from the collective experience across the business.
Improved Control, Delegation & Reduced Risk
The application allows you to take the existing best practice processes within the organisation and put them into a robust configurable electronic application that can be easily monitored. Individuals benefit from having consistent and documented best practice processes while team leaders benefit from being able to manage by exception. This approach also opens up significant opportunities to collaborate across broader teams and delegate activities.
