Integrated shuttle control

Direct SAP connection of multi- and single-level shuttles with SAP EWM / MFS

Shuttle control systems directly from SAP highly automated shuttle systems are in, as the numerous ongoing implementation projects at well-known major German and international companies prove.

Shuttle systems are particularly suitable for automated small parts warehouses with very high performance requirements. Thanks to their compact design, they are characterized above all by speed, low acquisition costs and low maintenance, servicing and operating costs.

IGZ offers comprehensive solutions for shuttle direct control with SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) and SAP Material Flow System (SAP MFS). This means that all strategies for the required optimizations can be mapped in the integrated SAP EWM material flow control.


Smart Shuttle Control

Skalierbare Lagersysteme wie ein Shuttle-System haben ihren Vorteil in der sehr flexiblen Erweiterungsmöglichkeit: Durch Hinzufügen einzelner Shuttles kann die Leistung und Kapazität einer Anlage dynamisch an die Anforderung angepasst werden. Das modular aufgebaute Lagersystem vereint alle Funktionen, die für Lagerung und Transport nötig sind in einem durchgängigen System. Die Shuttle-Fahrzeuge transportieren unterschiedliche Ladungsträger horizontal über Schienen und vertikal per Lift an jeden Ort des Regals. Über ein lokales Funknetzwerk (Wireless LAN) erhält jedes Shuttle seine Transportaufträge vom Rechner. Die Steuerung des  gesamten Systems übernimmt das Warehouse Management System SAP EWM / SAP MFS.




  • All processes, from the GR to storage and retrieval of the containers in the shuttle-AKL to the supply and control of the picking and packing stations, are carried out via SAP EWM / MFS
  • The number and performance of the required shuttles can be scaled as required with SAP
  • Full stock and execution transparency in SAP
  • SAP EWM contains the entire inventory management, selects the storage areas for putaway and coordinates the processes
  • No additional material flow computer required
  • Verification and performance test with SAP EWM software as early as the project planning phase
  • Flexibility with changing article ranges and adaptability of logistics processes
