Trade Forums LogiMAT 2019

High-ranking experts from industry and research will be talking about key themes and the latest trends in in-company logistics held in forums right in the middle of the exhibition halls.


>> To the Innovation forums of LogiMAT 2019

The emphasis will be very much on practical, successful solutions, thus giving maximum benefit to strategists and managers working in procurement, production, warehousing and dispatches.

Successful driverless transport system projects

Specific assistance for indoor and outdoor applications

  • Deutsch
Hall 9
Forum E
  • Chaired by: Waldemar Osterhoff, Senior Consultant Forum-FTS GmbH, Voerde


    Driverless transport system projects are usually complex and demanding. Innovative technologies and experienced project management must be carefully combined. Specific guidance is provided on the simplified, well calculated planning of driverless transport systems for use in indoor and outdoor applications.
    The first lecture addresses meeting market demand after standardisation with a modular AGV system. The second lecture is concerned with the technical requirements for outdoor projects. The third lecture deals with the 10 key factors in successful driverless transport system projects.

Intralogistics – Future – Technology

New technologies in intralogistics

  • Deutsch
Hall 9

  • Chaired by: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr. h. c. Karl-Heinz Wehking, Head of the Institute of Mechanical Handling and Logistics, University of Stuttgart


    Sequence 1
    10:00 – 11:00

    Excellence in manual order picking

    Designing efficient and versatile manual order picking processes

    Manual order picking systems offer a high level of flexibility at low investment costs. Humans are able to adapt quickly to dynamic, diverse process content and can branch out into other functional areas of a business in the event of fluctuations in capacity demand. That is why manual activities are a part of the commissioning processes in production and distribution logistics. This sequence, with lectures by academics and business professionals, delivers specific research-based approaches to the planning and the optimisation of manual order picking systems.

    Sequence 2
    11:30 – 12:30

    Reaction not anticipation! – Material flow for lot size 1

    Supply mesh for adaptable production

    If the product world is changing, the logistics supporting it cannot stagnate. Individual and-customer-specific ex works solutions have made lot size 1 a reality even in mass production. Intralogistics therefore should not be a barrier here, it should pioneer flexible and transformable production processes. Efficiency in material supply processes however must not end at the factory gate, but is also a factor in fast-response supplies from the logistics warehouse and from suppliers.

    Sequence 3
    13:30 – 14:30

    Connected and secure – concepts for the production facilities of the future

    Theoretical and practical concepts

    Integrated, decentralised control systems and new safeguarding concepts will take on increasing importance in future production sites. From various research projects, concept case studies in the sectors of integration, control and security are illustrated, from theory through to practice, and approaches to solutions to meet current challenges are presented. The series provides, among other things, an insight into the research project ARENA2036 and shows the emphasis on IFT there.

    Sequence 4
    15:00 – 16:00

    Intelligent use of energy at the logistics centre

    IFT Day meets the intralogistics network in Baden-Württemberg e.V.

    Are logistics centres fit to provide flexibility for power networks, to use renewable energies and integrate electromobility?
    These are the questions that preoccupy the special Baden-Württemberg IFT and intralogistics network series with the presentation of industrial and research-oriented approaches to solution-finding such as that of the Baden-Württemberg environment ministry-funded research project FELSeN.

LogiPICs – a visual language to combat the labour deficit!

Employee integration by visual working instructions

  • Deutsch
Hall 9
Forum E
  • Chaired by: Prof. Dr. Michael Krupp, Professor of Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Hochschule Augsburg, Augsburg


    In the “LogiPICs – Logistical Processes in Imagery” project, a universal interculturally understandable visual language has been developed and tested for non-mother-tongue German employees in the warehouse. This specialist forum will give an insight into the development work. Specific applications for the ‘LogiPICs’ visual language will also be presented. See and test the prototype LogiPICs system that has been developed specifically for use in warehouses and handling halls.

Innovative technologies for driverless transport systems

Promising developments for future mobile systems

  • Deutsch
Hall 9
Forum E
  • Chaired by: Dr.-Ing. Günter Ullrich, Executive Partner, Forum-FTS, Voerde


    The demands for the driverless transport systems of the future can only be met if new technologies are implemented. Three case studies are examined of major significance for future autonomous systems.
    The first lecture will address focal issues of energy supply for AGVs, emphasising modern energy storage and charging procedures. The second lecture is about the use of artificial intelligence (AI). Both personal identification and gesture command are managed using neural networks. The third lecture will be about new flexible methods of vehicle tracking. Here for example floor surfaces can merely be scanned to calculate the precise position of an AGV.
