The company'sprod uct line includes many thousandsof articles, ranging from operatingcompo nents such as handles or knobsas well as mechanical engineering andtoolmaking components all the waythrough to clamping tools. The productionmust be extremely flexiblesince both customer-specific individualorders and high-volume ordershave to be processed. The short-termavailability of components and a mor eefficient organization of the shippingwarehouse also triggered the com -pany's decision to have a new logisticscenter built.System SolutionA special challenge in the logistics centerconcept was the close interaction of thewarehouse with the Assembly and Distri -bution areas. This had a major impact on thesystem's structure. The warehouse is not onlyadjoined by the goods receiving areas forProduction and external suppliers, but also byan order picking area and assembly zone.viastore systems supplied six viaspeed S/Rmachines for the mini-load system and oneviapal S/R machine for the separate pallet warehouse.The order-related final assembly aswell as the supply and return of series parts inthe assembly zone and the order processingsystem as a whole required close interactionof the viad@t warehouse managementsystem and the ERP software product B2.For this complex interface, viastore systemsprogrammed a special connection to the ERPsystem.The ResultIt didn't take long before the rationalizationeffect of the new system became obvious.While the employees in the one-shift warehouseand shipping areas often had to workovertime in the past in order to process cust -omer orders on time, the new warehouseoffers considerable capacity reserves afterone year in operation, thus permitting a fur -ther increase in goods traffic.Scope of Supply:General contractorS/R machinesContainer and pallet conveyor systemsSteel constructionMaterial flow control systemviad@t warehouse management systemSystem visualizationEssential Features:Automatic mini-load system:6 viaspeed S/R machines with belt extractorLoad capacity: 110 lb.
