With the necessary update of the SAP module WM to EWM in the warehouse of Warsteiner, the previous warehouse execution, was no longer satisfactory. 

In particular, the significant difference between the ERP data and the actual in and outside warehouse – were eliminated by the use of IdentPro’s Warehouse Execution System. The scanning effort for the drivers, the operating errors and incorrect bookings, the inefficient utilization of the fleet and the storage space were further reasons for the decision to use the software and hardware solution from IdentPro. The retrofitted sensors on each forklift in intra logistics now provide a virtual image of all movements and stocks at Warsteiner in real time. Conversely, all transport orders are transmitted directly to the terminals and the drivers are guided in an optimized manner. All data is constantly uploaded to the EWM of SAP.

Forum Chemical Logistics

07.-08.09.2022 in Gent (Belgien)

Banner für die Auszeichnung Best of Industry Award

We are pleased to be part of the Forum Chemical Logistics of the German Logistics Association (BVL) this year. Many exciting developments and trends in chemical logistics will be presented over the two days at the Marriott Hotel in Ghent.

Today, the logistics sector is more in the centre of attention than ever before – also in the chemical industry. Not only are the challenges of the supply chain concerning service providers, industry and trading companies, but also the current energy crisis. What kind of challenges does the chemical industry face? What opportunities arise from technological progress, new business models and digitalisation? Innovative and sustainable solutions are therefore all the more important in order to meet the current requirements.

With our Warehouse Execution System, we are already making a contribution today to creating transparency in intralogistics through digitalisation and thus optimally using and saving resources – in any industry.

Our software solution

Warehouse
Execution System

The Warehouse Execution System from IdentPro is able not only to record the movement of goods, but also to control and optimize it through the virtual mapping of the entire warehouse with accuracy to the second and centimeter. Using WiFi or 4G, the system is in constant exchange with all material moving equipment used – regardless of whether it is a manned or automated vehicle. The vehicles equipped with IoT sensors simultaneously provide up-to-date 3D information about the movement of the currently transported and stored goods as well as the image of the surrounding room geometry. The usual, extremely error-prone process of scanning during storage, transfer or removal is no longer necessary. 

The Warehouse Execution System is also used to route transport orders to the driver terminals or to automated vehicles. A transport that is not recorded by the system is no longer possible. Empty runs are reduced, routes are optimised.

  • Autonomous identification and 3D localization of cargo and warehouse by means of internal transports

  • Control and optimization of transport orders and routes

  • Error-free transports and stocks without scanning

100% virtual image of each warehouse

Implementation
in existing buildings

IoT sensors enable real-time localization of cargo 

We mainly implement our Warehouse Execution System in existing properties and with existing material moving equipment. The type, dimensioning and installation of the warehouse is actually unimportant. The existing transport vehicles will be retrofitted with LIDAR and IoT sensors. This can be implemented with any vehicle for indoor and outdoor use. All moving equipment in the warehouse is now connected to the server of the Warehouse Execution System via WiFi or 4G and provide a virtual image of the current warehouse situation. Conversely, transport orders and warehouse locations are transmitted to the IdentPro driver terminals.  

A connection to an existing or later planned WM (Warehouse Management)/WMS (Warehouse Management System) is possible, but not necessary. 

Through cloud technology, all software is offered as SaaS (Software as a Service).  

  • Retrofitted forklifts navigate drivers and create a virtual image of the warehouse 

  • Bidirectional connection to WM/WMS possible directly or later

  • SAAS reduces investment costs and allows stand-alone operation 

Automation

Due to the challenges on the job market, the automation of forklift fleets is an urgent issue in many of our customers’ production logistics. Simple, continuously repetitive transports can already be easily mapped by unmanned vehicles. IdentPro has upgraded various Linde forklift trucks for this purpose. These can search their way independently and without further aids – and can also be used collaboratively. They can be used completely self-sufficient or integrated into IdentPro’s Warehouse Execution System. In the rare event of a malfunction manual operation is possible without losing cargo tracking. An AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot) is available here under the generic term AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicle)). This means that it can find its own way without a guide lane or fixed routes, avoid obstacles and, of course, electical loading by induction.  

It may be useful to start initial pilots with an AMR as an isolated solution. However, the later integration capability into the entire intralogistics up to the ERP should always be taken into account.  

  • IdentPro forklifts can drive completely autonomously and collaboratively 

  • Integration into the Warehouse Execution System ensures digital transparency 

  • The Warehouse Execution System can be used to map manned and automated transports in parallel
