    Supply Chain Execution
    Really good and timely ...

    This area pools together competences gathered from many consulting and development projects in logistics with the SAP Suite. The main focus is on procurement processes, intralogistics and handling processes using SAP ERP and SAP EWM. Intralogistics processes in the automotive and consumer goods sector remain the focus of our work, which we also support with our product family alogis-PAXolution and alogis-JIXolution.

    The competences of the Supply Chain Execution division are in the following industries and topic areas:

    Commissioning processes

    Commissioning processes

We have worked on projects in the following topics, among others.

    Goods receipt processing

    Goods receipt processing

    In most companies, goods receipt is not just confined to a simple check and receipt of the delivered goods. Most of the time, upstream and downstream processes and their mapping in the systems determine how complex the processing is. The key points below clearly show this.

    Warehouse and inventory management

    Warehouse and inventory management

    Warehouse technology now includes much more than just shelves and conveyor belts. The high degree of automation in controlling the movement of goods, increased handling speeds and the detailed maintenance of material or container inventories all require sophisticated system support. In addition to actual storage and movement, value-add areas are increasingly being generated in the warehouse.

    Warehouse control/inventory management

    • Stock-in and stock-out strategies
    • Inventories managed by production numbers

    • Automated warehouse connection (KLT - small load carriers, GLT - large load carriers, conveyor belts)
    • Value-added services (KIT formation, etching)

    Picking

    • Goods to man, man to goods
    • 1 to 2-stage picking
    • Pick from multi-stage HUs
    • Integration of WM in JIT-inbound
