Dematic „goes mobile" at LogiMAT 2013 in Stuttgart (Hall 1, Stand 631)

Frankfurt / Offenbach - January 30, 2013
Following last year’s successful product launch of the latest Dematic shuttle and Storage & Retrieval System generations, Dematic’s main focus this year, under the heading ‘More than technology’ is to deliver innovative software and service solutions. On 160sqm the latest software trends for Warehouse Management using SAP EWM, controlling of logistics orders using mobile devices and the monitoring of warehouse key figures with dashboards will be the main stand focus. Visitors will be able to interactively test the latest solutions from Dematic. Additionally Human Resources will be present at LogiMAT and the global leader, of intelligent intralogistics and materials handling solutions will be on hand to offer advice about job and career opportunities within the company.

Dematic presents its own standards and templates within SAP EWM

Dematic is a certified SAP partner with its own World Competence Centre in Nuremberg and will showcase on the stand its extensive expertise, latest SAP EWM MFS solutions via multimedia. The main focus and presented for the first time at LogiMAT will be the standards and templates within SAP EWM. In 2009, Dematic was noted as the pioneer in SAP EWM with the world’s first automatic logistics system under SAP EWM MFS. EWM can be used for the modelling and control of distribution facilities with high throughput (multi- and omni-channel Warehousing). Using the new Dematic templates within EWM, the complete implementation of the SAP solution, from the initial system configuration via the end-to-end customising, to the establishing all system interfaces, will become easier and more efficient for the customer. The added value is achieved by the low-risk implementation, the reduced duration of the project, resulting in a reduction in project costs, which in turn supports the user of the system to achieve an optimal total cost of ownership. At the Dematic stand, visitors can examine various EWM scenarios with guidance from the experts.
Dematic as an experienced SAP partner will support you in the creation of an application analysis regarding the right decision with complete planning and implementation of your EWM project. Stand visitors have the opportunity to register for a free consultation and a one-day application analysis.

Dematic goes mobile

The Internet has changed the world and consequently put additional demands on logistics and their processes. For example, no other industry had been able to achieve such high growth rates last year as that of online shopping. Also the use of smartphones, tablets and laptops has seen a huge growth. 
Market analysts are already talking of the so-called post-PC-era where mobile devices dominate the market. The use of these mobile devices makes transactions much more flexible and increases the productivity of users. Especially in logistics these applications are interesting and cost optimising because they allow a roaming logistics control and monitoring. Dematic is doing pioneering work in this field of intralogistics. On the stand is an IT information centre, where visitors can learn more about the latest mobile technologies in SAP EWM MFS and WMS DC Director from Dematic. Dematic will show how you can work more productively when information sharing is required anytime or anywhere. With the DC Director Mobile App, customers can access the required information from Dematic WMS DC Director with these advanced processes allowing them to make quick decisions regardless of which device they are using and regardless of where they are at any time of the day. Demonstrations of this technology on the stand will offer the customer new solutions they may not have considered previously. 

Obtain logistics figures via tablet or smartphone and react immediately

Mobile devices have also found their way into the monitoring of logistics statistics. Not only pure logistics indicators, but also mobile evaluation of details with error analysis options and interesting applications. Also the alert management and personnel control by tablet and smartphone can be designed as a mobile workflow. OS (operating systems) customised, easy to use and provided with location independent Apps for logistics control are easily accessible via online portals. Dematic supports the development and delivery of mobile Apps that allow you to access certain functions of EMS and other business applications. For example using the logistics manager, the web solution or App for mobile access, to the warehouse processes of the company. In addition, Service employees can book or redirect jobs directly with an enterprise resource planning App (ERP) on the move. The distance between the employee and the company to access the necessary information is substantially shortened therefore increasing efficiency. 

Customer Service on demand – 24/7

For Customer Service the use of new technologies with mobile devices is playing a vital role with maintenance. One such possibility is the remote tracking via the Internet or using mobile devices which is particularly advantageous when several locations are involved and allows the Logistics Manager to monitor all warehouse processes. Also, the remote monitoring solution offers a wide-range of benefits by using a camera system. Staff usage is reduced within the racking system, time consuming working at height is significantly reduced and troubleshooting can be done remotely. This means that the time allocated for repairs is significantly reduced. Technicians can check the charge status immediately, without the need for them to climb up as would normally be the case. Given the fact that the load handling device can be operated manually, as long as you have it in sight, a video stream of the load handling device can be utilised to meet the requirements of EN528 5.9.3 for storage and retrieval machines. There must be a emergency control stand available from which the device can be directly observed and safely controlled. Using locally installed Wi-Fi technology keeps the downtime to a minimum and creates a complete system independence from the control of the storage and retrieval machine. 

Always a step ahead of the competition using future trends– SAP Hana

In addition to current software systems, the visitor can also hear about the opportunities at Dematic of the future in logistics management with SAP Hana. SAP Hana allows the analysis of large amounts of data in seconds - for instant insight into the company, faster response times and the decisive advantage in the market.
