ABOUT MANN+HUMMEL

CHALLENGES

  • Direct integration into the existing SAP® ERP
  • Optimization of the material flow between incoming and outgoing goods
  • Paperless distribution of transport orders via a central pool
  • Restriction of the delivery notes to be processed at the same time
  • Visualization of the current progress of the respective orders
  • Minimization of distances travelled
  • Relief of resources (e.g. narrow aisle stackers)


IMPLEMENTING THE SOLUTION AT MANN+HUMMEL

  • Implementation of SAP® integrated transport control system
  • Definition of the zone for the pallet transfer point in front of the high-bay racking pre-starting place for front loaders
  • Parallel picking of delivery notes from forklifts
  • Double play due to combination of inward and outward storage
  • Combination of retrieval and labelling
  • Clear division of labour:
    • Narrow-aisle stackers in the high-bay warehouse take over the storage and retrieval operations
    • Avoidance of aisle changes in the transport control system, no control of the racking aisle by two/several narrow-aisle stackers

RESULTS AND RETURN-ON-INVESTMENT (ROI)

  • Acceleration of picking and shipping processes
  • Sustainable increase in efficiency in the dispatch zone
  • Increased motivation of employees by logging progress
  • Increased motivation of the employees through more transparency of the processed driving orders
  • Reduction of lead times by 7% and minimisation of distances by 15%
  • Improvement of the flow of goods
