A+C Plastic Plastics industry

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
  • Solution: Warehouse Execution System
  • Integration: with DS-SOFTWARE
  • Specialty: Integration of scales; grown, labyrinthine topography

A+C Plastic produces annually 25,000 tonnes of high-quality industrial packaging made out of LDPE film at state-of-the-art extrusion lines. 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, geschäftsführender Gesellschafter IdentPro.

BMW Automotive industry

BMW: Paperless internal material transport and error-free deliveries

  • Application: Container tracking and loading control
  • Solution: Warehouse Execution System, AMR
  • Integration: with SAP® WM
  • Special feature: AMR integrated into order distribution of the ERP 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.”

ELA Container mobile
room and building solutions

ELA Container:Full transparency in real-time, without scanning!

  • Application: Track & trace of all mobile room and building solutions from containers
  • Solution: Warehouse Execution System
  • Integration: SaaS Solution
  • Specialty: Tracking of the massive containers starting directly after production.

The northern German company ELA Container from Haren (Ems) produces and configures mobile room and building solutions from containers. To maintain an overview, the company trusts in IdentPro’s Warehouse Execution System (WES) software solution to reliably locate and identify the containers in real-time.

Task: Container management was previously done manually and without system support, which resulted in a high amount of searching and administration work. The great number of containers and their many variants also made fast workflows difficult. In order to meet the increasing customer requirements and to maximise process efficiency, 100% transparency of all container inventories was to be achieved. For this reason, they decided to use IdentPro’s Warehouse Execution System (WES) to optimise the existing processes and thus improve productivity.

All container inventories can be viewed at any time and in real-time (RTLS). The smart IoT solution ensures a significant increase in productivity for the north German company.

“It was very important to us that the knowledge about our warehouse is available to all employees at all times. This is only possible if all processes are recorded immediately. The advantages of this real-time data were quickly recognised and internalised by everyone, both inside and outside the project. It simply makes all processes much easier.”
Malte Andresen ( Leadership / Head of IT-Projects, ELA Container)

Hagemeister Building materials industry

Hagemeister: Digital overview: From production to outgoing goods

  • Application: Clinker tracking and loading control
  • Solution: Warehouse Execution System
  • Integration: with OGS ERP system
  • Special feature: Tracking of the different charges already starts in production via a conveyor belt.

Hagemeister is one of the leading manufacturers of facade clinker, clinker brick slips & paving clinker and supplies various customers and projects worldwide with the appropriate facade solutions. The Warehouse Execution System from IdentPro was to bring reliable transparency to the large external warehouse and to production. The partly analogue warehouse processes – such as order picking – were also to be digitalised. The goal was to know and track the actual stock at all times through the digital twin – without scanning or searching manually. Driving as well as ordering orders were to be controlled via the software and also connected to the ERP system of OGS. The reliable software solution increased and secured the warehouse and process quality. Thanks to the new process reliability and complete transparency – starting with production – Hagemeister now has an overview of all warehouse data & movements in real time.

“At Hagemeister, it has improved that the whole process is more transparent. We have a record of every pallet. So immediately when it comes out of production, it is booked into the warehouse system. We have verified the loading and we now have a better inventory. The Warehouse Execution System from IdentPro is optimal for us.”
Raphael Tiekötter, Warehouse Manager at Hagemeister GmbH & Co. KG

Refresco Beverage industry

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

  • Application: Tracking of pallets without scanning
  • Solution: Warehouse Execution System
  • 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.“
Michael Belitz, Head of Logistics, Refresco Deutschland GmbH

Sant’Orsola Food industry

Sant’Orsola: Shorter delivery times: From the harvest to the supermarket!

  • Application: Food, Fresh berries & fruits, harvested products
  • Solution: Warehouse Execution System
  • Integration: ERP-System
  • Special feature: Tracking of delivered fruit through automated connection via a conveyor belt.

Sant’Orsola is a producer cooperative from northern Italy that specializes in the cultivation of small fruits, strawberries and cherries. The association, that was founded in 1970, includes over 800 producers and supplies fresh fruit to Italy as well as to various countries in Europe.

Mission: In Sant’Orsola’s cold storage warehouse, seamless goods tracking & control was to be ensured. Fast further processing of the food and shorter delivery times of the fresh fruit was the main goal. With IdentPro’s Warehouse Execution System this was exactly what was implemented. Directly from the field, the growers bring their harvest to the modern warehouse in Northern Italy. The goods are automatically connected to our system via a conveyor belt after unloading. Our smart twin technology seamlessly tracks all movements of the fruit in the warehouse and optimizes the transport orders centrally using our software. This ensures timely further processing to enable the best possible yield from the harvest.

All stock levels can be viewed at any time and in real-time (RTLS). The smart IoT solution provides more efficiency and has increased profits for the producers’ cooperative.

“With the IdentPro solution, we manage all processes in our production faster and better. We have all the information in real-time and the right information about all the goods in the warehouse.”
Gilberto Oslo (IT Manager, Sant’Orsola).

  • Solution: Warehouse Execution System
  • 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 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.”
