Maximum process reliability thanks to fully automated connection.
“For Westernacher Business Management Consulting GmbH, together with the general contractor, Ferag AG, the hub is a key project with considerable dimensions. The project kicked off at the beginning of January 2022, and several teams will work exclusively on it for almost two years. More than 16km of conveyor systems will be supplied by Ferag AG. They will run on three levels, connect several halls with each other and ensure seamless process handling. Ferag’s proven Skyfall bag sorting system will be loaded with 125,000 bags and will ensure all steps in the ordering and returns process: receiving goods from the hanging garments storage; fully automatic bag loading with prepared returns; dynamic buffering for efficient material flow and prompt availability of goods; automatic bag emptying and distribution of picked and sorted goods to the packing stations; delivery of goods to the shipping area. In addition to Ferag AG’s MFR, an SAP EWM system is used to control the processes of the warehouse and the material flow. Westernacher customizes and further develops this system for the customer in order to guarantee the complex processes with the required reliability and speed,” says Ferag AG about the joint project.
Westernacher SAP EWM system guarantees maximum delivery capability.
The Westernacher IT experts implement an SAP Extended Warehouse Management with MFS (Material Flow System) in the s.Oliver Group logistics center. This is supplemented by the Westernacher MFS-framework add-on, which reduces the complexity of connecting automatic sections through standardization. This minimizes the risk and simplifies later support or planned extensions. Added to this is a two-stage shaft handling with sorter integration, WE schedule – Westernacher’s own add-on for yard handling, as well as the integration of the Ferag pocket sorter (Skyfall), the development of special workstations with Fiori / UI5, returns processing and a direct connection of an e-commerce system to SAP EWM.
