Manage Your Highest Cost Area

Purchasing

By developing the precise roll stock strategy your purchaser can make sure they always have the paper required without having to overstock. RMS allows for transparency and visibility into the accurate inventory for on order, in transit, and on-hand rolls allowing for better planning management. Save money and improve cash flow by ensuring you have the right paper when its needed without having cash tied up in non-moving rolls.

Front Office

Real-time integration within the Amtech products allows for information to be immediately delivered, viewed, and acted upon at the front office. Your front office staff can pro-actively manage vendors, print roll tags, view individual roll history, produce reports to analyze and track inventory and search the entire roll stock inventory. Now your staff can address potential issues before they happen and provide immediate answers to your customers.

Clamp Truck

Your clamp driver can trust the PCR values, receive incoming inventory, and stage rolls at the right location. Wet end operators have access to real-time information so they can correctly stage inventory at the corrugator. They are able to print in-house roll tags and view important manifest information. Transit damage can be recorded at the time of receipt by the receiver and non-confirming material is prevented from moving into production. This keeps your business on track and improves vendor quality and control.

Production

RMS delivers vital, time-stamped data to operators about roll paper characteristics (moisture, porosity, STIFI, ring crush, etc.) by simply scanning the roll ID number. It reports and categorizes waste at various steps through the process, providing an accurate accounting of paper usage within the plant down to the individual roll level. Time-stamped events facilitate subsequent reviews and enables matching of wet end consumption to dry end production for ISO traceability. An accurate roll history is maintained while keeping your operation informed.

Tag Management

Accurately determine the number of sheets in each stacker discharge, print load tags and provide stacker operators with order specific information for quality checks while interfacing with external systems such as corrugator dry end, sheet counters, and conveyor systems. Supporting an unlimited number of load tag formats, you are able to easily meet plant and customer requirements. Improve accuracy, reduce costs, and enhance the reputation of your business.

Roll Stand Manager

A single-source, non-interfaced, roll stock management solution, RMS accurately tracks consumption and inventory using automated sensors at each roll stand. In real-time, the system measures and records the lineal footage on the corrugator, quantifies the actual lineal consumed during a run, and identifies the paper remaining on the roll so you always know when a splice occurs. Eliminate issues caused by human error, prevent vendor mistakes, and stop trying to manage multiple systems.

Roll Stock Replenishment Advisor

A web-based tool, the Roll Stock Replenishment Advisor recommends what inventory to procure and when. Operating in a totally integrated environment and in real-time, the system utilizes intelligence to evaluate areas such as: run rates vs. consumption and roll stock pipeline then makes recommendations. This allows you to stay ahead of problems, expedite placed orders, and proactively know when to have orders delivered.

Alerts

RMS delivers immediate visibility into board upgrades that adapt to order specifications and inventory on hand. Alerts sent to leadership and operators about the insertion of upgraded/ incorrect rolls provides for immediate decisions to control spiraling upgrade and/or “ghost” costs. Stay proactive with managing your business’s highest cost area.

Data Analytics and Business Intelligence

Your operations can be assured of the accuracy of roll stock inventory and improve operating efficiencies in the areas of roll stock receiving, storage, removal, consumption, and inventory control through accurate, real-time information in an integrated environment. Maximize your investment in roll stock inventory through an optimized roll stock strategy, improve waste reporting, consumption measurement, and inventory tracking.
