You have successfully displayed the current status of your planning factory in IPO.Log 4 Material Flow. Your next goal is to identify and evaluate improvement potential.
To do this, first copy your entire project in the start view of IPO.Log 4 Material Flow.
Then open your new project so that you can now make changes without the changes affecting the current status. The effects of your changes can be immediately compared with the previous planning status by comparing the projects.
Select one or more improvement suggestions from the following options and implement them in your copied project:
- Use FTF instead of a forklift between incoming goods and the first warehouse/processing stage
- Use FTF for the supply of supermarkets instead of route trains
- Divide the supply route of the assembly line into two routes, each starting from one of the two supermarkets.
You have now learned the most important functions of IPO.Log 4 Material Flow and can independently identify and evaluate optimization potential.
