Koenig & Bauer Kammann Counts on PSIwms
by Hans Diederichs
ERP and WMS from PSI assure optimal storage and production supply
Following the successful implementation of the PSIwms warehouse management system from the PSI Logistics GmbH, the decoration machine manufacturer Koenig & Bauer Kammann GmbH is running the processes for warehousing and production supply in an integrated IT infrastructure in the new central production site in Löhne.
More than 35,000 different assembly parts are stocked at the new location in Löhne, to which the company moved in October. The warehouse management system implemented for the process control of the material storage and picking as well as the supply of the assembly stations on time and in line with demand. Koenig & Bauer Kammann uses the PSIpenta ERP system as the superimposed software system for production planning and control. With the two PSI systems, the company now has an integrated, holistic IT infrastructure from materials receiving to production to shipping.
PSIwms has the relevant core and additional functions according to VDI 3601, as well as competition-differentiating functionalities such as event management, warehouse visualization and the modern PSI Click Design. It also offers interfaces to the enterprise resource planning system (ERP), to the material flow computer of the intralogistics provider Jungheinrich AG for controlling the semi-automatic narrow-aisle truck. In a second project step, 18 Kardex shuttles will be integrated into the process organization.
