In the ICAP-SIRA production unit of Parabiago logistic handlings are automated. Automatic trucks (Self Guided Vehicles) remove the pallets of finished products from an accumulation line and take them directly to the chosen warehouse area. These vehicles, furnished with intelligent terminals, are connected by radio to the computer-logistics system, run by just one operator, who programmes the missions, optimizes the route, takes care of the system diagnostics and monitors all operations in real time.
The same vehicles also remove the pallets with raw materials and semi-processed products from the warehouse and take them to the various production units, according to the daily or requested scheduling programmes.
Questo sistema informatico logistico, totalmente affidabile, è collegato in rete con il calcolatore centrale. Si è così ottenuta l'integrazione informatica in tempo reale di tutte le attività aziendali: dai laboratori alla produzione, alla movimentazione, al magazzinaggio, agli uffici commerciali ed alla spedizione ai clienti.
In the Barberino di Mugello location a state-of-the-art computer system manages all aspects of production, and interventions can be carried out both on quantity and quality parameters, with a continuous exchange of information between the process computer and the management computer.
