Logistics Management Module Supports Marine, Rail, Truck Operations
Emerson has added a movement logistics management module to its Syncade Smart Operation Management Suite. The new application complements Emerson's established base of instrumentation, control and custody transfer systems for tank farm and terminal product movements. Initial installations include terminals and tank farms in North America, Europe and Asia.
Combining the DeltaV automation system with the Syncade suite's operations management capabilities, the new Movement Logistics Manager (MLM) application supports marine, rail, truck and pipeline site operations. Key components include order management, logistics planning and scheduling, inventory management, and production accounting. It connects and interacts with every level of the operation, from enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to the devices that load the ships and trucks and open the gate at the terminal. The system manages tasks such as custody transfer of products, printing shipping documents, and reporting final accounting results back to the ERP for invoicing.
