LOJISTIX®

The central platform for your JIS processes

LOJISTIX is the solution for optimized JIS processes and increases your efficiency, flexibility, and transparency. You thus benefit from our concentrated JIS consulting and process expertise.

Two WSW employees are sitting in the meeting room talking about the LOJISTIX product.

Mastering the supreme discipline of logistics

Whether you are an automotive supplier, logistics or sequencing service provider: Your business success depends to a large extent on supplying customers with assemblies and parts on time and in the correct sequence at all times. However, just-in-sequence (JIS) processing, also referred to as the "supreme discipline" of logistics processes due to its complexity, presents an enormous challenge.

At WSW Software, we support you with the modern, powerful JIS and logistics platform LOJISTIX, which completely covers the logistical JIS process and thus becomes the central clock for your JIS processing.

When you benefit from LOJISTIX

JIS processes place special demands on companies. LOJISTIX is the central platform that enables you to master even complex challenges.

You want to save costs in your production and logistics with the help of digitization and automation.

Your goal is higher quality and a lower error rate in sequencing.

You want to be flexible and be able to map new processes without major project effort.

You do not want to use your ERP system for your JIS processes, you need a decentralized system for individual locations, or you want to set up an emergency system.

Your company is growing and with it come new locations or even new customers (with additional OEM processes).

Challenges

With the help of LOJISTIX, you can meet your customers' requirements for your JIS processes without much effort.

  • Error-free communication: The central challenge in JIS processes is very accurate, clear and error-free communication with your customers. If correct data processing already fails at call-off receipt, you will no longer be able to meet the sequencing specifications.

  • Independence from the overall process: Many companies have special requirements for JIS systems: they must function stably, cannot be paused for long periods of time for maintenance or updates, and must also function independently of the central ERP system.

  • Risk mitigation: With JIS specifications, the responsibility for smooth processes is increasingly shifting towards suppliers. Faulty or late deliveries cause immense costs and can be avoided with end-to-end digitized processes.

  • Simplification through digitization and standardization: Individualization and increasing model diversity are causing growing complexity on the part of suppliers. Analog processes can no longer cope with this. Digital solutions that do not have to be constantly adapted through programming, but can be easily configured, ease the situation.

  • Growth despite price pressure: The automotive industry is known for supplier competition and enormous price pressure. Efficient and end-to-end digitized processes create an advantage over your competition.
