Processes and solutions

  • Pre-picking at 148 picking stations using pick-by-voice technology.
  • 3 roller conveyors as flow storage solutions are replenished automatically with ho-mogenous articles. 
  • Automatic checking at goods receipt using fixed scanners: contour check, weight check and barcode readability check (of the pallets).
  • Storage based on A, B, C criteria, equal distribution,
    batches and field load capacity.
  • Tour optimization: PROLAG®World sorts the drinks pallets based on the scheduled tours. The WMS retrieves the pallets so that they can be loaded onto the truck in the reverse order in which they will be unloaded.
  • Visualization: An overview screen shows all sections
    of the conveyor technology solution and the high-bay facility in their current status. As soon as a conveyor, SRM, profile check, high-speed door or fire gate reports an incident, PROLAG®World sets the relevant section in the visualization to “incident” and marks the section in red

Host system

  • SAP R3

Customer benefits

  • Automation creates efficient and optimized processes.
  • Extensive visualization options make it considerably simpler to detect and deal with any incidents – incidents can be evaluated immediately and processed appropriately.
