Patrick Schroeder, the time is ripe for a new bed, the old squeaks and makes the night to the day. Completely tired, just the force for an online order – remains a comfortably from your sofa with a few mouseclicks. Arrives a few days later the bed then, embarks on the construction and scares: missing just the main part in the package. It is not alone in this problem, because according to a study by the European Commission for Consumer Affairs, hundreds of customers about problems with their Internet shopping in 46 percent of cases for a late or incomplete supply complain every year. I’m sure that companies therefore strive to optimize your intralogistics and to counteract a bad reputation by careful and reliable packing of the goods. Intralogistics refers to the targeted control of all flows of material and goods, taking place within a facility there. The right goods must be at the designated time at the right place and the of course completely.
Modern software-based control technologies, as well as the use of robot technology help with this logistical challenge. At goods issue about State-of-the-art DWS systems ensure quality assurance. DWS is an acronym for the processes of dimensioning, weighing and scanning. Packages run on a conveyor belt and are identified by the barcode from a scanner. Then, they are weighed and measured. And the weight of a package does not match the reference weight that is stored in the computer, so it is not delivered. Such a system at the exit of the goods guarantees that that the package is in fact complete the company prior to delivery.
“It is particularly interesting, by the way, how modern scales work: determine the weight of the frequency of a vibrating string and are therefore particularly precise and fast”, explains Reto Gianotti, Vice Managing Director of sales and marketing for PESA. In times of globalisation, companies know that they comparable Technologies must use to be able to persist in the international competition. The CEMAT considered global trend barometer in Hanover. It is the world’s largest trade fair for intralogistics. Over 1,000 exhibitors present new achievements of engineering there from 27 to 31 May 2008. Christoph Hahn-Woernle, Chairman of the Presidium of the CEMAT, stressed in the run-up to the fair the development potential of the industry: the intralogistics sector has grown in the past five years by about 50 percent. If we look at the development of our industry to the beginning of the year and the forecasts of the company, we can assume for 2008 by a further revenue growth to eight percent”. The career prospects for the industry are therefore positive. So, the companies of the German intralogistics industry have increased within the past year the number of jobs by 4.3 percent to 94.900. The increase might have bigger, if the industry would rather suffer the lack of young talent”, Hahn-Woernle regrets. Many vacancies could not be filled. Would have to consider whether taking not the reins into their own hands when the next incomplete order and opt for a career in the intralogistics industry. The proper packaging of the ordered bed would then at least your own control. And a good night.
