Let's get in touch.

Every new production object is provided with a unique record and with the intended interim storage warehouse in the production sequence, and an appropriate transport order is created for the warehouse management system. If the activation of a new production order results in material requirements, the corresponding retrieval orders are also generated for the warehouse system.
CAT is the origin of these transport and retrieval orders. It automatically generates them in the background as the result of an entry made by an employee. This way, users are spared from having to use warehouse management functions such as “Create transport order.”
The close interaction between our MES and warehouse management also provides employees with the possibility of checking whether or not production orders can be started on the basis of the current material situation. Based on available inventory, employees can decide to put an order on hold when the lack of material would likely result in the order being interrupted at some point during the process.
