  • Würth Achieves 98% Delivery Precision with Astro WMS
    a safe and efficient way to keep order and access control of consumables screws bolts nut machines gloves chemicals and tools The Würth group sells more than 200 000 articles online Approx 14 000 of these articles are delivered from the warehouse in Örebro Our journey began in 2011 when it was decided that we should move to new headquarters and we required a new logistics system At that point we were working manually driving around in trucks picking goods directly from picking lists says Peter Lindström Three different roads to travel When searching for a new logistics system Würth had three tracks to choose from Continue working with manual picking lists and spice things up with a voice picking solution Choose a pick pack check system today used by many construction groups where a conveyor transports the package around and it gets picked up for manual packing Choose the high tech road and go for an HDS Shuttle system and automation For a long time we were focusing on continuing on our manual track because it was safe and simple and we knew what to expect But we started to investigate further and answering questions such as the area we could build on how many square meters of warehouse we needed for each system risk calculations staffing requirements and system TCOs Peter continues It was a comprehensive process to assess which path we would take Track two disappeared quite early it received the worst results in most surveys Track 1 was the best until we met the Professor Professor Reinhold Würth said that Würth companies shall always be in the frontline In order to grow by 15 yearly there was no possibility to stay in a manual system it was not a long term solution Peter Lindström That was the starting point for our selection of the Shuttle system and Astro WMS Today 74 of our articles are picked using a goods to man shuttle system From an ergonomic perspective is the gods to man solution the best option for our warehouse workers The goods are stored in the HDS Shuttle where a robot arm picks up a tote with goods and transports it to the picking stations Every station handles 250 300 order lines per hour and around 7 000 order lines per day Moving a warehouse The objective for Würth was to move all goods to their new warehouse with minimal impact on the daily work The mission included the goal to complete the move in one week during vacation without losing orders to customers During the move period we created a move organization that took the full responsibility for the move and daily business During this period we hade fully control one every article and its whereabouts and availability The new warehouse building is about 7 700 sq m containing a bulky area chemical area and a shuttle system The shuttle area contains about 23 736 locations were the totes can be stored The bulky and

    had to pitch in on the warehouse floor And as volume soared picking errors increased with mixups and returns creating even more work in the warehouse They needed to enhance manual processes with an automated solution and a WMS that could handle significant growth in the near future Plug n play functionality The company evaluated a number of warehouse automation systems but weren t satisfied with what they saw On the advice of their consultant they took a look at Astro WMS After reviewing the standard feature set they realised that while other systems would require costly time consuming tweaks and customizations with Astro WMS they could get what they needed right out of the box We ended up buying the standard Astro WMS installation says Joakim Nielsen Project Manager Elektroimportøren AS It was quick to implement and had everything we needed With a standard installation the implementation process could be fast tracked getting the company up and running in a very short space of time Ramping up fast While Elektroimportøren AS remains a relatively small company for the time being they need to know they can meet existing order volumes more efficiently and be ready to ramp up as their business evolves Astro WMS has helped them achieve that level of flexibility within their existing staffing limits With just eight people working in the warehouse the company was able to jump from 500 to 1500 orderlines per day without incurring a single hour of overtime We measure warehouse performance and we ve seen large performance improve ments says Nielsen All orders coming in by two o clock can be shipped the same day We struggled with that before but with Astro WMS we have almost eliminated picking errors This new and reliable performance standard has enabled the company to

  • Pierre Robert
    we need to increase our existing system support to ensure we manage the high demand during the peak season and other hectic periods We chose Astro WMS with voice control in order to increase our capacity and effectiveness along with improving the working environment for our personnel said Markus Engelbrekts Business Development Director for Pierre Robert Group Consafe Logistics is implementing Astro WMS with voice control during operations in Pierre Robert s existing premises The company is taking full advantage of a smart system to more effectively manage changes in operation during operation which Consafe Logistics has had great success with previously Pierre Robert have even put into place a new warehouse layout by extending the warehouse and installing a new system which includes packing stations as well as an area for handling empty cartons We were looking for both cutting edge and broad competence when we searched for a supplier in the Scandinavian market who could respond to our needs In Consafe Logistics we have the complete supplier with long experience within our sector and a WMS which can fully support our growth said Markus Engelbrekts Astro WMS is the obvious choice for manual and automated warehouse and distribution centres with a high flow of orders or complex logistic and warehouse management processes Voice Recognition is a technology that is suitable for many warehouse functions and applications Voice controlled systems allow personnel to move freely around the warehouse without the need for heavy equipment The system steers the picker concerning the direction he or she should take what should be picked and what quantity The system maintains full control of the tasks undertaken while the picker communicates verbally with the system and confirms completion of the tasks during the day We are very glad that Pierre Robert chose us

  • Calsberg_Mobile IT solutions
    namely legislation and business optimisation We are particularly interested in optimising our customer invoice flow so we can improve our customer service liquidity and return flow explains Claus Jensen Carlsberg s mobile IT solution enables drivers to print invoices at the customer s place of business This means the customer receives the goods and the invoice in one and the same procedure there are fewer incorrect invoices and Carlsberg receives payment earlier thus improving its cash flow and inventory status Returned goods take up a lot of Carlsberg s system resources and a great deal of money can be saved if the group has a precise real time overview of the scale and location of its return goods inventory According to Claus Jensen this affords several advantages Reduced returned goods inventory Less warehouse space needed Substantially less time spent on manually counting returned goods at the warehouse Better space utilisation on lorries fewer empty kilometres reduced CO2 emission Tighter control and a better decision making basis The biggest advantage of the new mobile IT generation is probably the vast improvement in our data gathering and updating This gives us tighter control of master data and greater data discipline because data gathering is carried out at source namely by the driver or the warehouse employee says Claus Jensen In the Danish part of the business alone the mobile solution comprises 300 lorries 315 terminals and 340 drivers This means that management always has an up to date business overview which in turn provides a better basis for management decision making Cheaper and better IT operations The Carlsberg Group stresses the importance of centralising and standardising IT operations The mobile IT solution enables us to centralise IT development and operations This results in fewer costs and greater flexibility because the IT architecture is simpler and more standardised explains Claus Jensen Financial flow follows goods flow One of the immediate benefits of Carlsberg s mobile IT solution is the improved invoice flow Each day ControlTransport provides Carlsberg with an updated invoicing basis This enables the group to maintain a faster invoice flow which is consistently many days or in some cases even weeks faster than was previously the case Furthermore customer statements are constantly updated giving customers access to precise purchasing and consumption data The solution provides us with a faster data flow which goes hand in hand with a better cash flow says Claus Jensen Four good tips for mobile IT solutions Claus Jensen has four recommendations for other companies planning to implement mobile IT solutions Establish close cooperation between IT and logistics IT mobility must support the logistical processes and it goes without saying that the best results are achieved when logistics experts with knowledge of the value stream are brought on board Successful major IT change requires a corresponding change in processes and human behaviour It is therefore a good idea to carry out 360 degree tests on the IT solution before implementation to give the parties involved the opportunity

  • Berendsen Textile
    routes We process 55 000 consignment notes every month and therefore relied strongly upon finding an efficient tool to help us reduce costs and improve delivery quality Our customers also demand documentation of punctual deliveries continues Mr Bodding First on the market Together with Consafe Logistics it has taken us 1 1 2 years to prepare the system for our purposes We are the very first Berendsen company to choose this system Implementation started in early June 2009 and the system is now fully adapted to company procedures Morten Bodding was assigned responsibility for training the drivers in the different units in Norway We have noticed that a number of our service drivers save time due to the efficient handling and planning of routes With 350 routes per week the potential savings in fuel vehicles and environment are formidable The greatest benefit however is the increase in delivery quality for our customers Distribution procedures Twice a day we transport textiles to and from our plant in Oppaker to a central warehouse in Furuset Oslo The majority of distribution takes place from the central warehouse with the exception of deliveries to the north to Hedmark and Oppland counties In principal we make use of hired in transport operators in Oslo At our other plants we mainly use our own drivers explains Mr Bodding He confirms that the new distribution system from Consafe Logistics is made up of handheld terminals Our drivers use these terminals to register where he she is on the road when the goods have been delivered and any non conformances The customer signs for receipt on the terminal and this information is sent directly to our ERP system which generates changes electronic receipts for list of contents and non conformance reports This provides huge savings in both time and money We now have total control of the flow of goods from A to Z and are confident of a full return on our investment in the system Savings and efficiency Before implementing the system Berendsen Tekstil Service had to manually sort several thousand lists of contents and distribute these to the different routes We have made huge reductions in our paperwork and cut costs by automating this process explains Mr Bodding He goes on to say that the company has been able to reallocate internal resources to other assignments and has reduced unnecessary costs Our employees who used to work with preparing assignments have now been reassigned to customer contact We have now implemented a development program for our customer service Comprehensive process We register all units according to weight and wash frequency A data chip is sewn in to each garment providing information on e g age of garment how often it is washed personal user information etc Mr Bodding explains We have full control of historical data regarding where the garment has been used from acquisition to disposal Customers have access to our statistics via our SOL website The website can also be used by authorities

  • Helly Hansen
    volumener stiger i takt med at væksten stiger Vi er endvidere afhængige af en pålidelig men ganske lille supportpartner der kun er tilstede i den europæiske tidszone Det indebærer en høj risiko for en så kritisk del af vores forretning som vores lagerdrift er fastslår De Rijke Efter en grundig udvælgelsesproces har Helly Hansen valgt Astro WMS fra Consafe Logistics som deres nye lagerstyringssystem Vi ønskede at undgå en udvælgelse baseret på mavefornemmelser Vi har derfor defineret meget objektive udvælgelseskriterier sammen med Jeroen van den Berg Consulting Det resulterede i valget af Consafe Logistics som leverandør Systemet imødekom Helly Hansens to vigtigste udvælgelseskriterier Erfaring med mode og beklædning samt en international organisation der kan levere support i både Europa og Nordamerika Consafe Logistics tilbyder support på begge kontinenter Ikke kun DC et i Holland men også DC et i Auburn USA bliver supportere t i arbejdstiden Det er planen at implementere Astro WMS i januar 2014 med start i uge 2 på det mindste af de to DC er i Auburn og implementering på det hollandske DC i ugen efter Dette er den bedste timing fordi vi i januar befinder os mellem to sæsoner og lagerniveauer samt ordrevolumener vil være lave fortæller De Rijke Support af cluster pluk og slotting Helly Hansen forventer at forbedre produktiviteten markant med Astro WMS Cluster pluk er et godt eksempel på et område hvor det nye WMS kan skabe betydelige forbedringer I højsæsoner modtager vi mange ordrer der indeholder de samme varer Det betyder at vores plukkere besøger de samme pluklokationer til hver ordre Astro WMS gør det muligt for operatøren at plukke adskillige ordrer på samme tid Vi vurderer at den funktion vil forbedre produktiviteten med 15 til 20 procent Helly Hansen forventer også at opnå fordele af funktionaliteten til task interleaving og slotting Task interleaving gør det muligt hurtigt og let at kombinere forskellige opgaver såsom ordrepluk og cycle count Slotting support medfører at Astro WMS foreslår den optimale varelokation baseret på fx varens hastighedskategori Dette er yderst relevant for Helly Hansen eftersom kollektionerne skifter flere gange årligt Etablering af ABC struktur for vores vareporteføljer på lagrene sker i dag manuelt fortæller De Rijk Endelig tilbyder Astro WMS mere omfattende ledelsesinformation Vi vil ikke kun være i stand til at overvåge den foregående dags performance men vi vil også være i stand til at planlægge mere effektivt Systemet synliggør arbejdsmængden for resten af dagen på ethvert givent tidspunkt Det gør det muligt for os at optimere overvågningen af driften og giver os bedre muligheder for at omdirigere ressourcer hvis der er behov for det Disse funktionaliteter er ikke unikke for Astro WMS men den brugervenlige grænseflade vil gøre brug af systemet langt lettere Helly Hansen overvejer også at tilføje stemmestyret plukteknologi til det nye WMS i fase 2 Klar til markant vækst Når Astro WMS er implementeret om en fem måneders tid vil Helly Hansen drive et distributionsnetværk som øger muligheden for vækst Helly Hansen blev sidste år opkøbt af OTTP en
