  • Chaired by: Sandra Lehmann, Editor, LOGISTIK HEUTE, HUSS-VERLAG GmbH, Munich

     

    Generation Greta is making it clear: When it comes to climate protection and sustainability, declarations of intent are no longer enough. So, in these times of plastic shaming and the throw-away society, packaging logistics has also had to look very closely at the theme of sustainability and develop initial solutions for packaging that are environmentally friendly and secure - for storage, transport and dispatch. What these new applications look like, what they bring and whether they are made of plastic, paper or another material entirely, will be discussed by experts from business and research.

Logistics and climate responsibility

Ideas for reducing emissions by 55% in 10 years

  • Deutsch
Hall 9
Forum E
  • Chaired by: Alexandra Kornacher, Head of Design, Research Group for Optimizing Added Value at the University of Augsburg (HSA_ops)

     

    Reducing emissions is an urgent concern, if we are to meet the Climate Action Plan 2050. Commercial logistics is responsible for a part of these emissions in the transport and industrial sectors, but changes since 1990 have been marginal. The goal is still to reduce emissions in comparison to today´s levels by 55% (in transport) and 34% (in industry) by the intermediate date of 2030. In this forum experts will be exploring how this goal can still be achieved, in Pecha-Kucha-style presentations and in discussions with the audience.

Forum D
  • Chaired by: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Philipp Gölzer, Head of the Business Area “Digitalized Production“, Fraunhofer SCS and Professor at the Technical University of Nuremberg

     

    A great deal of data are generated in logistics processes. But when companies decide to leverage these valuable data using data analytics, they often meet problems, because of poor data quality, fragmented or incorrect data, or different formats. Or, for a particular application, the correct data may simply not be available. We show examples from practical applications, where we have overcome these hurdles and generated real added value from data for process optimization or the development of new services. The Fraunhofer SCS and partners deliver an AI reality check.

Efficient order-picking with AI

Warehouse logistics, handling and route planning

  • Deutsch
Hall 9
Forum E
  • Chaired by: Dr.-Ing. Kai Pfeiffer, Group Director, Service Robotics for Industry and Commerce, Fraunhofer IPA, Dortmund

     

    Reliability and short delivery times play an ever more important role in purchase decisions. Commissioning therefore needs to be fast and efficient. Whether that job is done by a human operative or a machine, intelligent algorithms have the overview. They gather orders together in batches, plan the routes and allocate warehouse space. Artificial intelligence enables robots to reliably identify goods, grasp them securely and lay them in an ordered way in shipping cartons. By means of “deep learning”, AGVs identify the best route and adapt their driving behavior to suit the situation.

    Excellence in manual order-picking

    Designing efficient and flexible manual order-picking systems

    Manual order-picking systems offer high flexibility at low investment cost. People are capable of adapting quickly to dynamic, heterogeneous processes and when there are capacity fluctuations, people can move to other functions within the company. For that reason manual activities are an integral feature of commissioning processes in production and distribution logistics. This series of talks by practitioners and researchers delivers specific, scientifically founded approaches to planning and optimizing manual order-picking systems.


    Sequence 3
    11:30 - 12:30

    Decentralized control in automated material flow systems

    Needs-oriented component sequencing on location

    Material flow systems that are capable of reacting to event-driven real-time needs at the sink have to be flexible. A static pearl chain which takes several days to work through does not meet these demands. Integrating human sensory and cognitive capabilities as a decentralized decision-making point in automated material flow systems creates flexibility in dealing with event-driven situations.


    Sequence 4
    13:30 - 14:30

    Simulation of material flow systems

    Planning and control in research and practice

    As a result of ever shorter innovation and development cycles, growing competitive pressure and an increasing variety of services and products, material flow simulation is becoming more and more important.
    Three talks are presented in this series: The first two talks, by the Institute of Mechanical Handling and Logistics at Stuttgart University, are an introduction to the themes of simulation-based planning and control of material flow systems. The final talk is by SimPlan AG, a leading simulation service-provider in the area of material flow systems.


    Sequence 5
    15:00 - 16:00

    Sensorics for autonomous logistics systems

    Approaches and solutions from research and industry

    Whether mobile, stationary or a mix of both – autonomous systems need sensors. What applies to vehicles, applies also to logistics. When systems make decisions independently and should also be able to react to unexpected occurrences, then sensors provide the required information about the environment. This information can be acquired at the autonomous system itself, or also through the installed infrastructure. Approaches and solutions to sensorics in autonomous logistics systems are presented in this series of talks.

Hall 1
Forum A
  • Chaired by: Bettina Bohlmann, Start-In Guide, 3p procurement branding GmbH, Düsseldorf. Participator in the Supply Chain Summit EXCHAiNGE 2020

     

    Many companies still act in accordance with the belief that sticking to their ways and focusing on investing in technology and materials will bring them a sustainable competitive advantage. Yet the reality is that products, processes, even knowledge can be copied and that companies can quickly be overtaken by the competition on all these fronts. The key factor in ensuring success lies therefore in creating a unique (own) corporate culture with strong integration. How to overcome barriers to innovation and initiate and manage the transformation process will be the subject of discussion here with the experienced change expert Bettina Bohlmann and other pioneers in corporate practice.

    The advances in data processing and in IT have, it seems, greatly simplified warehouse planning. CAD is used in getting the most out of the available space on the site in question, and computers also support warehouse operations. Yet this approach does not take into account the function of the warehouse in the supply chain or the requirements of the goods being stored or the markets. The value of the goods, the delivery service, space conditions, sales volumes etc. – all these are important factors which should be integrated into warehouse planning and operations.
