Zwilling – Highly dynamic order picking for cutlery

The logistics centre by BSS as general contractor consists of a high bay storage, two automated small parts storages, a highly-dynamic paperless order picking facility with 460 PBL displays and 264 flow channels for fast-moving items with automatic restocking by STC.

The pallet handling equipment links in the assembly-line production, the restocking and the manually operated storerooms on different levels. An extensive carton and container handling equipment facility for restocking, order picking, packing and despatch with automatic strapping and labelling provides fast processing of orders.

A hardware and software test system was implemented to verify changes carried out in SAP and their consequences for the production system.
