Digital transformation and printouts – does that go together?
INTRALOGISTICS FOR TOMORROW
Everyone is talking about Industry 4.0, with most people thinking of digitized and networked production or predictive maintenance. But what about intralogistics?
EVERYTHING BECOMES DIGITAL.
When thinking of a logistical process where a digital exchange of information would be helpful many people will name Supply Chain Management (SCM) first. However, Industry 4.0 works holistically only.
Everyone who still controls his warehouse processes and production supply via voice messages or with printouts has a need for action. Anyone who relies on digitization on the road or in production should consider whether in his warehouse paper lists, barcode scanning and logistics by calling are actually future-proof.

ARE YOU STILL SCANNING, OR ARE YOU ALREADY 4.0?
Scanning barcodes by forklift drivers is also a no-no with Intralogistik 4.0. Expensive time is lost simply through the manual scanning process of barcodes.
The average duration of a barcode scan is at least 3 seconds. If you add this number up to the year, seconds add up to many days that are wasted destroying value. In addition to wasting time, manual scanning also generates corrupted data.
How much does it cost you to search for pallets and to correct errors resulting from inconsistencies in your warehouse management software (WMS)? And, BTW, how big is your safety stock?
