Production Logistics, Kanban

MES PHARIS® includes a wide support for solving of process associated with the Production logistics. The advantage of the integration of this area into the MES system is online availability of necessary data from the ERP system and simultaneously is possible to use the hardware resources for running MES PHARIS® in the production.

Into MES PHARIS® is integrated the methodology for supporting a lean manufacturing. The task of MES PHARIS® is to ensure the production of actual requirements as soon as possible in compliance with the minimum quantity of stock. MES PHARIS® is suitable for implementation in production with Just in Time (JIT), a manufacturing process control by the actual need.

Production logistics in MES PHARIS® is integrated into three main areas:
  • Packing units,
  • unique part identification, traceability,
  • kanban,
  • delivery notes.

Packing units

The management of packing units solves the filling of the packing and pallet units directly in the production and handling with it.

The area of packing units offers the following functionalities:

  • Packing requirements – including the records of types and packing capacity and pallet units, alternative units, default labels, etc.
  • automatic filling of packing units – based on the online information about the produced pieces. It offers also an information about the packing unit which is actually filling. The possibility of label printing, refilling of units, selection of the alternative units etc.,
  • label printing – the possibility of printing the packing and pallet labels. Support for the user creating of labels of more types,
  • storage of units – within the label printing is possible to cause the automatic storage of packing or pallet units in the ERP system. MES provides an overview of storage units,
  • inspection of the correction of units – it offers a monitoring and management of filled units.

Support of production logistcs through the production mini client:

  • Decommissioning of nonconforming products,
  • transfers among the packing units (refilling of units, transfers from substitute packing units ...),
  • transfers of packing units among the pallet units,
  • additional print of labels and pallet units,
  • creating and cancellation of packing units and pallet units,
  • setting of control symptoms.

Unique part identification

Traceability is especially useful for the production in automotive and mainly related to the production of safety components such as airbags components, components of fuel system, etc. Here is required by the customers the ensuring a traceability and archiving.
MES PHARIS® has an integrated funcionality for documenting, tracking and archiving of all accompanying information related to the production of parts. Production genealogy can be maintained for each batch or individual pieces.

As part of the traceability are stored the accompanying information:

  • Used materials, semifinished product including batchs,
  • technological parameters - temperatures, material cushion, pressures, duration,
  • management of control - complying of the control plan, measuring values,
  • persons involved into the manufacturing process,
  • work confirmation, nonconformities, corrective actions,
  • used program, set of parameters in the machine,
  • used tool,
  • maintenance,
  • etc.
It is a support of the unique part identification. Within the projects we have implemented the identification of individual pieces - usually by using BarCode. MES PHARIS® can be connected with a laser that ensures the burning the identification which is consequently tied with the parameters of the particular piece.


Electronic system of KANBAN is used for the management of material requests. The module allows automatic or manual creation of material requests. The requests are intended for deliveries or carting of material. The material requests are directed to the production, stores or handling.
The requests directed to the production are usually generated by the assembly workplaces and controls the production of the work units. The requests directed to the stores are usually generated for purchased raw material or semifinished products. The requests directed for the handling serve for delivery of material (input components) to the work unit or carting (products or wastes) from the work unit.
The module is available from MES PHARIS® cliens (main client, production client, mini production client).
A scenario of possible use:
  • Operator creates a request to the delivery of material for the following production,
  • the store receives the request and after the dispatch of material from the store transfers the material for handling,
  • handler takes over the request and delivers the material and confirms the delivery.
Another typical scenario is creation of the request of manufactured component (which is used for production plan) or creation of requests for carting of material (products or wastes).

Delivery notes

The module of delivery notes allows creation, editation and printing of delivery notes with support of using the available data from the MES system.

MES PHARIS® supports a complex management of delivery notes.
