MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG Nuremburg: Engine Production



 MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG Nuremburg

Sector:  Automotive

With the introduction of flexis Monitoring we are now able to detect part shortages earlier in the near term horizon. This in turn enables us to start the escalation process to avoid missing parts earlier and to prevent and reduce turbulences and costly retrofitting work in the assembly process.
Werner Mohri, MAN Truck & Bus AG

Components under control - More transparency on parts availability and manufacturability
MAN Truck & Bus AG manufactures diesel and gas engines in Nuremberg and supplies the complete internal manufacturing network of the commercial vehicle manufacturer. In addition, engines for special purpose vehicles, and marine and industrial engines are manufactured for external customers.

Overview all along the line
The number of required parts and different variants makes it difficult to keep track of the availability of parts. Transparency about the physical stock (on the line or in storage) is needed to ensure the smooth manufacturability of the scheduled sequence. The flexis solution now even includes those parts that are still in transit. In this way flexis contributes decisively to identify bottlenecks in time and to be able to take countermeasures selectively.

Manufacturability test in real-time
The flexis solution offers two main views. First, it informs the scheduler which jobs are affected by part shortages. Secondly, it indicates to the controller which parts cause bottlenecks. flexis also determines accurately the date and time of when parts will run out. Bringing all this data together provides a reliable basis in order to take appropriate measures in a timely fashion.
