Software for planning, optimization, simulation and control of logistics processes.
Logistics today means much more than just transporting or storing goods. It means the digitalization, organization, planning and control of complex flows of goods. But the reactions to short-term changes in the framework conditions in the supply network are also becoming increasingly important. The design of logistics processes, their mapping and integration into existing systems by means of IT play a decisive role in the quality of services and products and thus ultimately in the sustained success of companies.
The Logistics Informatics unit has a wide range of tasks: The focus of Smart Transport Logistics is on the organization of logistics flows and material flows, as well as their recording and processing. The planning and control of cross-company logistics processes is dealt with in the area Information Systems for Logistics Networks. The efficient design of the information flow through the use of modern technologies for the communication and interaction of systems is essential. Internal logistics issues are addressed in the Material Flow and Production Planning focus. The operative control of individual areas includes automated transport control systems or the control of warehouses up to the fully automated production control center. In the field of Detailed Product Planning, which is the coupling of batch size and sequence planning, we apply our know-how in mathematical modeling and the solution of these models in order to develop tailor-made tools. The decisions can be validated using simulation methods.
In the age of Industry 4.0, enterprise data is seen as an essential part of the value chain. The digitalization efforts aim at a comprehensive and automated collection of these data streams. In doing so, companies are faced with the challenge of obtaining valuable information and know-how from the collected data. On the one hand, real-time information is to be analyzed and processed for the reaction to short-term changes during operation; on the other hand, additional knowledge (prescriptive analytics) is to be derived from the collected data pools. RISC Software GmbH meets these current requirements of modern data management and offers ANNA, an individually adaptable virtual production assistant for knowledge generation of production data and machines.
