Arrow and Perzeptron roll out material-planning optimisation software

Arrow Electronics and supply chain consultancy and software provider Perzeptron will supply Perzeptron’s MiG material-planning software throughout EMEA. The move looks to extends Arrow’s capabilities as an end-to-end technology solutions provider.

MiG is designed to be connected to existing ERP systems easily and uses a common database for customer and production orders as well as materials, and provides them in separate views for purchasing, production and logistics, sales and management. The software simplifies communication and coordination between departments, reducing lead times. Material bottlenecks can be identified quickly and rectified.

The MiG software has been developed to improve the production process flows of contract manufacturers, OEMs and electronic manufacturing services providers. It helps to ensure that materials are supplied efficiently, reducing processing times and minimising the amount of capital that a company has tied up in its production process. This helps to improve both productivity and delivery reliability.

As part of the cooperation, MiG Advanced Edition will be enhanced to include direct links to Arrow and various other component distributors, providing users with easy access to component stock availability and pricing information.

Andreas Koch, managing director of Perzeptron, said, “The MiG functions for production process flows, material management and inventory optimisation will provide significant benefits to manufacturing companies, preventing capital from being tied up unnecessarily and improving liquidity as a result.”

Commenting Matthias Hutter, vice president supplier and product marketing EMEA at Arrow, said, “Many people know Arrow for the support it provides during the ideation, design and specification process, but as a technology solutions provider, our service goes much further. This cooperation with Perzeptron is an example of how Arrow and its suppliers can add value throughout the supply chain, delivering improved efficiency and better utilization of resources.”
