Berlin, 17 December 2019 – elobau GmbH has commissioned PSI Logistics GmbH with the delivery of the warehouse management system PSIwms. The aim is to increase transparency and efficiency in warehousing for production supply and shipping. PSIwms replaces the existing warehouse management software.
In addition to the simplification of the IT infrastructure and an extended range of functions, the increase in process efficiency and performance of the automation systems ensured by PSIwms, the integrated container management, the possibility of digital mapping of logistics and the identification and elimination of inefficient processes were also decisive factors.
The warehouse management system will handle the coordinated process control at elobau in five warehouse areas and one external warehouse. A total of around 1,400 pallet spaces will be managed. The central automation system is also a state-of-the-art AutoStore cube with 30,000 storage locations. Due to the connection to a new interface and processes optimized for the AutoStore cube, a performance increase by 20 percent is expected.
Due to the close functional networking with the ERP system PSIpenta, already implemented at elobau, the number of interfaces can also be reduced. In addition, further optimization options can be developed by means of a uniform IT infrastructure. The PSIwms at elobau is scheduled to commence operations in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The elobau GmbH, founded in 1972 and based in Leutkirch in the Allgäu region of Germany, is today one of the leading international suppliers of non-contact sensor technology and control elements.
