International roll-outs with ready-made templates at Brose

The worldwide automotive supplier Brose is now able to control all industrial trucks (forklifts, tugger trains, AGVs, ...) in 23 countries directly from Bamberg, Germany.

The solution to optimize transport routes despite different time zones and language barriers is the Flexus FLX-TLS Material Guidance System, integrated into SAP®.

CHALLENGES

  • Template as a blueprint for the standardized flow of processes , including a range of functions tailored to them
  • Simple and fast roll-out to worldwide locations
  • Optimized control of intralogistics
  • Resource planning of industrial trucks in incoming goods as well as supply and disposal of production materials
  • Control of empties and special transports
  • Consideration of objects not managed in SAP®


IMPLEMENTING THE SOLUTION AT BROSE

  • Adapt Flexus templates to individual requirements
  • Control of automated guided vehicle systems directly via SAP®
  • Combined use of FTS and other vehicles (e.g. forklifts) is possible
  • Exactly defined TLS building blocks enable easy roll-out through central configuration
  • Multilingual user interfaces for the different locations
  • Documented transfer points for transported pallets and containers, enables rapid clarification of errors and discrepancies
  • Easy handling of the user interface
  • Navigation and loading aid for drivers
  • Connection of narrow-aisle forklifts to the TLS
  • Existing devices remain usable, as the implemented solution is independent of the end devices

 

RESULTS AND RETURN-ON-INVESTMENT (ROI)

  • Increase in productivity
  • Easy international rollouts
  • TLS operates as an integrated connector, so no additional external warehouse management system is required
  • Standardized basis for the control of all industrial trucks
