BMW Group IT Fair 2012. München, 24/10 to 25/10/2012
BMW Group IT Fair takes place the 10th consecutive time in Munich!
Introducing ATLAS BMW brought a worldwide programme on the way in order to create sales more effective. Implementing project ATLAS BMW will equip its main warehouse in Dingolfing as centrepiece of small parts logistics including a newly integrated IT plattform. Warehouse management and control will be run with SAP EWM (SAP Extended Warehouse Management). Contributing defined services IGZ supports this very project for optimising of SAP EWM software as well as the enhanced material flow. Setting up the project ASW (automised standard warehouse) BMW aims for the implementation of a BMW-wide applicable IT template for the gearing of automised warehouses, which is merely based on the SAP software suite (high bay and small parts storages) - in addition to the integrated SAP systems in several BWM units.
By the use of ASW proprierary warehouse systems in automised BMW warehouses of vehicle and component factories will be transfered into a consistent SAP solution. Thus a better maintainability, future use and combatibility with later releases safeguard the IT service.
By means of an automised mini warehouse within the scope of the accessory exhibition IGZ will demonstrate, how physical material flow can by controlled with the SAP software suite. Visitors who are interested in goods-to-person picking have the opportunity to do picking on an integrated working station live at the venue. Similar observations are demonstrated by IGZ in another live demonstration for direct machine integration from SAP for production plants and mounting lines including SAP Manufacturing Execution (SAP ME/MII). Here SAP bridges the gap between between SAP ERP (SAP Enterprise-Resource-Planning) and the level of machine control systems (shop floor). SAP ME/MII (Manufacturing Execution/Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence) completely covers classical MES demands from controlling and control stations to the point of technical integration.
