BMW: Paperless internal material transport and error-free deliveries

  • Application: Container tracking and loading control

  • Integration: with SAP® WM

  • Special feature: Integration of freely navigating transport robots in resource control system

For its intralogistics lighthouse project Supply Center VZ2 at the Landshut location, the BMW Group required a paperless material flow with automatically triggered postings in the ERP system SAP® WM. The aim is to permanently ensure correct deliveries to internal and external customers. In addition, the transport capacities (forklifts and AMRs) are to be optimally utilized via an intelligent control system.

It quickly became clear that the defined goal could only be achieved by foregoing the error-prone scanning of barcodes by forklift drivers. For this reason, the BMW Group opted for IdentPro’s Warehouse Execution System at an early stage. The solution was set when selecting the logistics partner and since July 2017 the system navigates and supports the forklift drivers in the scanning-free execution of internal transports. All transport orders are monitored in the background by the Forklift Management System for correct execution (source, HU, sink).

“We are delighted that the BMW Group is relying on innovative digitization solutions for internal material flow for its forward-looking supply center in Landshut and has chosen our Warehouse Execution System for this reason. The positive feedback from the BMW Group confirms to us once again that the digitalization of intralogistics leads to sustainable increases in productivity while eliminating errors.”

Refresco: more transports due to elimination of scanning and reduction of empty runs

  • Application: Tracking of pallets without scanning

  • Integration: with SAP® EWM (partner: prismat GmbH)

  • Specialty: Transport of up to 6 load units simultaneously, integration with conveyor technology

Refresco Germany is part of the international Refresco Group, and, with over 6 billion liters, one of the leading producers of fruit juices and soft drinks in Europe today. Task: The consolidation of two locations required a significant improvement in warehouse efficiency. The goal was the complete elimination of any unproductive processes, such as manual barcode scanning, searching for pallets, storage locations and batches. Implementation: The previous warehouse management based on a classic SAP® WM solution with hand scanners was converted to SAP® EWM and automatic feedback through the automatic localization and identification of forklifts and pallets using IdentPro’s Warehouse Execution System.

Our goal was a significant and sustainable improvement in warehouse efficiency. After evaluating other solutions for forklift localization, we chose IdentPro’s Warehouse Execution System. The system works reliably and integrates optimally into SAP® EWM. Today, we transport well over 25% more pallets with an unchanged fleet of forklifts. IdentPro is a constructive and reliable partner. The optimization of further locations with the Forklift Management System is in planning.“

A+C Plastic: Customer deliveries and removal from storage with loading lists and automatic checks for accuracy and completeness

  • Application: Stock transparency, paperless loading and simplified traceability

  • Integration: with DS-SOFTWARE

  • Specialty: Integration of scales; grown, labyrinthine topography

A+C Plastic produces 25,000 tonnes of high-quality industrial packaging made of LDPE film on ultra-modern extrusion lines every year. As one of the most modern production facilities in Europe, A+C Plastic offers individual and tailor-made solutions for all important industrial sectors. In addition, very individual application areas are also served.

In multi-stage production processes, a large number of products and product variants are produced. Semi-finished and finished goods and residual quantities are weighed before storage. The aim of A+C Plastik was to ensure accurate pallet tracking within the warehouse and during dispatch. For loading, the forklift drivers receive loading lists on the forklift terminal and are navigated to the goods required. Completeness and correctness of the loading are checked automatically.

IdentPro’s Warehouse Execution System is based solely on natural environmental features, this has made system implementation much easier in the winding terrain.

“A+C Plastic has decided to digitize its warehouse and now benefits from 100% inventory transparency. Among other things, this also speeds up the annual inventory considerably. Trucks are loaded correctly faster and reliably, as forklift drivers are guided to each requested pallet.”
Michael Wack, Managing Partner IdentPro.

Warsteiner: Avoidance of the scanning obligation with SAP EWM, optimization of empties collection and resource utilization

  • Application: Tracking of pallets without scanning, handling of empties, scan-free factory transport

  • Integration: with SAP® EWM (partner: prismat GmbH)

  • Specialty: Transport of up to 12 load units simultaneously, integration with conveyor technology, dialogues at the forklift terminal for empties collection. Loading image for scan-free transports between two plants Loading pattern for scan-free transports between two plants

The Warsteiner Group is a successful family business exporting beer to over 60 countries, the leading position among German private breweries. Task: After conversion to SAP® EWM, the company will continue to work without barcode scanning. The goal was to achieve complete transparency of full and empty stocks as well as all shipments. At the same time, empty runs are to be reduced and the handling of empties simplified for the forklift drivers. Implementation: Warehouse Execution System from IdentPro complements SAP® EWM and takes over the control of the forklift fleet. Confirmations to EWM take place automatically. By means of an application developed by IdentPro at the forklift terminal, four clicks are sufficient for the collection of empties. Also newly introduced is a “loading image” which enables the scan-free exchange of goods between the locations Warstein and Paderborn.

“The Warsteiner Group follows a clear premium strategy for its products and services and invests according to the motto ‘Innovation and investment by tradition’. The use of state-of-the-art production technology and logistics is seen as an indispensable prerequisite for future-oriented action. We are pleased that the Warsteiner Group has chosen our Warehouse Execution System. Both production and customers benefit from error-free supply thanks to integrated process monitoring. Optimization algorithms and full inventory transparency ensure a sustained increase in productivity.”
