How to integrate the forklift guidance system in SAP

Do you want to optimize your production processes and make the transport structures within the warehouse more efficient? Do you want to make the material flow in intralogistics transparent? All areas are covered with the FlexGuide forklift guidance system for SAP!

Production logistics with WIP management

With the FLX-WIP warehouse management it is possible for you to store and retrieve materials that are not yet stocked in the SAP warehouse. This gives us complete transparency over your WM, EWM and WIP inventories. All this integrated in the FlexGuide transport guidance system !

Logistics center with multi-stage processes

Connect semi-automated forklifts directly to your warehouse logistics with SAP. Your semi-automated VNA trucks are easily implemented via the standardized interface. The integration of important providers (STILL, Crown, Jungheinrich, etc.) is also available. You can also optimize the journeys of your resources via the FlexGuide.

Trailer management directly in SAP

If trailers are used for transport in your company, you can also manage them via the FlexGuide. With the container management, it is also possible for you to store container types.

Important questions about the forklift guidance system

By means of the optimisation kernel. This ensures that your priority-controlled driving orders are assigned to the respective vehicles in the driving order pool. The calculation is based on various priorities that you can determine individually (e.g. waiting time, due date, empty run, etc.).

All SAP modules and non-SAP modules for storage, production, shipping and organization trips can be connected.

With the forklift guidance system, it is possible to store and retrieve materials that are not yet stocked in the SAP® warehouse at the exact location. Precise tracking of your containers or materials is also possible.

The FlexGuide guidance system also works from the basis without location technologies, since distances, pick-up and drop-off points are known via the graphic planning tool. Location technologies such as laser location or UWB radio location are already integrated into the system as a standard and can be used depending on the customer project.

Your semi-automated VNA trucks are easily implemented via standardized interfaces. Integrations with the major providers (STILL, Crown, Jungheinrich, etc.) are already available and can be used directly.

The creation of travel orders is integrated in the SAP modules (e.g. supply of production). Therefore, multi-stage transports are also possible, for example between tugger trains and forklifts. Your driving orders can be automated, e.g. B. created from production order data or created manually via the Flexus worker dialog.

The components of the forklift control system for SAP allow for easy implementation and administration of the system. Physical changes to routes, new transport resources or roll-outs to further locations within your group are easy to implement using the existing tools.

Personal data is not stored at any time. Our evaluations always refer to the corresponding device or resource that is being optimized.

The average ROI times ran between 6-18 months depending on the scope of the solution.

The forklift guidance system was certified by SAP for S/4 HANA. What does this mean for you? Our solution meets the high quality and security standards of SAP and can be seamlessly integrated into existing SAP systems and the latest technologies can be used.
