The Future of Manual Picking

Greater flexibility at an affordable price

  • Deutsch
  • English
LogiMAT Arena - Atrium, Entrance East
  • Moderated by: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Robert Schulz, Director, Institute of Mechanical Handling and Logistics (IFT), University of Stuttgart


    Manual picking systems offer a high degree of flexibility at low investment costs. Humans are able to adapt quickly to dynamic, heterogeneous processes and can move to other areas of a company when demands on capacity fluctuate. That’s why manual activities dominate picking processes in production and distribution logistics. This expert forum offers both theory and practice for concrete, scientifically based approaches to planning and optimizing manual picking systems.

LogiMAT Arena - Atrium, Entrance East
  • Moderated by: Detlef Spee, Deputy Head, VDI Expert Committee 301, Logistics Systems and Management; Department Head, Intralogistics and IT Planning, Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML


    The new VDI Guideline 3299 helps in the selection of the right picking system. It supplements the popular VDI 3590, which covers structural design. The new guideline offers a systematic approach to finding the right solution and highlights key principles, system types, and criteria. It provides everyone, not just experienced practitioners, with a common vocabulary and understanding on the journey to choosing the right system. An expert panel of warehouse operators and suppliers introduces the guideline and explores its benefits and applicability.

    Shorter lead times for customized products, optimized fulfillment and logistics planning: “DesignChain” delivers an end-to-end, highly automated process flow—from defining customer requirements and setting the price and delivery date to generating the design and CAD model and transferring a validated NC code to production. Digital efficiency is a game-changer for fulfillment and logistics.
    Fraunhofer IPA offers a concise illustration of how processes are automated in DesignChain, including real-world examples.

Urban and Rural Supply Concepts of the Future

Imagining tomorrow’s transshipment centers and automation

  • Deutsch

LogiMAT Arena - Atrium, Entrance East
  • Moderated by: Prof. Dr. Michael Krupp, Director, Research Group for Optimizing Added Value at the University of Augsburg (HSA_ops)


    The need to reduce carbon emissions and improve the quality of life in urban centers has led to intense efforts to reinvent mobility.
    Changes in individual mobility typically also have a major impact on the conditions for last-mile transport in city centers. Urban logistics concepts to address these trends have been designed and tested in city centers since the 1990s. New concepts in rural areas are less common, but are also being tested.
    In most cases, this will require new transshipment centers with innovations in areas such as last-mile modes of transport. But what will these hubs look like? Tight spaces, limited hours, extremely high demands on flexibility?
    Can they be automated, and which IT systems are needed? We look forward to sharing our experience and solutions and talking with you.


    2:00–2:15 PM
    Urban and Rural Supply Concepts—Is Automation an Enabler for New Solutions?

Ranking Autonomous Features in AGV/AMR Systems

The new VDI Autonomy Index

  • Deutsch
  • English
LogiMAT Arena - Atrium, Entrance East
  • Moderated by: Dr.-Ing. Günter Ullrich, Director, Forum-FTS GmbH, Head of VDI expert committee AGV


    In the old days, people just talked about AGVs. Now we have AMRs, MRs, aAGVs, IGVs, and more—terms that are largely the brainchild of marketing departments. But what exactly is autonomy, and what do autonomous functions mean for AGVs?

    The VDI expert committee on AGVs has developed a comprehensive definition of autonomy: Clearly delineating automatic and autonomous functions and applying an evaluation matrix of all 11 autonomous functions makes it possible for the first time to calculate an autonomy index. Each function is also compared against the use case, yielding a custom evaluation of an autonomous solution.




    • Moderator: Dr.-Ing. Günter Ullrich, Head of VDI Technical Committee for AGVs; Managing Partner, Forum-FTS GmbH
    • Thomas Albrecht, Manager AGVs, Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML
