Emerson Process Management SyncadeTM Suite manufacturing execution system now provides terminal managers with increased security tools and improved control of material movements and inventory. Version 4.9 of the Syncade Logistics Module allows operators to effectively manage the storage and distribution of materials transported by railcars, trucks, ships, barges and pipelines.
To safeguard material and operate efficiently, terminal mangers need visibility to the status and stock ownership of their tanks. Syncade Logistics enables operators to see both source and destination tank values to verify that moved quantity is accurately and safely stored and delivered. The module also facilitates tighter control of inline blending, tank swing changeovers, and accounting at the line segment level for precise stock allocation.
The module’s robust material tracking and automatic generation of Bill of Lading and other required documents, makes it easier to provide customers and regulatory agencies with clear documentation of the materials during transit and storage.
Syncade Logistics helps ensure the security of a terminal by controlling access to the physical facility and materials, and by capturing verification of railcars and trucks via security cards, biometric controls of RFID tags. This transactional information is archived and can be quickly retrieved for review or analysis.
