Digital Products for Use with SAP® Management Systems

  • INTRANAV RTLS Intelligence provides extended functionality for users of SAP® Extended Warehouse Management

     

    INTRANAV revolutionizes warehouse and transport handling for the first time with the VIRTUAL Warehouse Solution. The INTRANAV.RTLS VehicleTAG+, which is installed on the vehicle fleet (forklift, AGV, route train), ensures scanner-free and optimized goods transport. The transport and goods movements are tracked in real-time and mapped in digitized form on the INTRANAV.IO platform. While the pallet is on the forklift truck, booking processes from inbound to outbound are automatically booked in SAP® EWM. The last storage location in the rack storage or other buffer stations is also recorded in SAP® EWM by software-based touch and endpoint identification.

    Virtual zones in the warehouse automatically initiate the transport order jobs of the vehicles, INTRANAV.APPs ensure an optimal transport order distribution of the vehicle fleet with a transport order pool and take into account the forklift availability as well as an optimized routing of the vehicles. Integrated sensors ensure transport safety and collision avoidance.

     

    Retrograde reports based on real-time location data now also enable optimization potential of the entire material flow; weak points and waste can be analyzed at a glance.

    By integrating real-time location data into SAP® management products for manufacturing, such as SAP® Manufacturing Execution, processes can be tracked and workflows automated. This provides process clarity, stability, and security, and can also shorten process times.

     

    Real-time location data also provides important data when it comes to maintenance; with IIoT, parameter values of objects and machines can be monitored reliably and predictively.

     

    In order to keep the production output constant, relevant characteristic times must be evaluated. Real-time location data provides actual data without delay to analyze granular cycle measurements, zone dwell times, work cycles, just-in-sequence provisioning and more. For this purpose, INTRANAV products such as INTRANAV.APP Flow Status or INTRALYTICS can be used or the data can be integrated into SAP® dashboards.

     

    SMART Warehouse:

     

    The application areas for INTRANAV RTLS Intelligence for SMART Warehouse include “Warehouse Automation”, “Intelligent AGV Management”, “Social Distance Management” and “Workforce Safety”. By integrating real-time location data into SAP® management products for (intra-)logistics, such as SAP® Extended Warehouse Management, processes can also be tracked and workflows automated on the shopfloor, and high-level information can be provided. Resources can be dynamically controlled, goods movements and updates can be automated and performed without scanners, search times can be reduced, empty runs can be avoided and throughput can be increased.

     

    Virtual zones can be defined in INTRANAV.IO by Drag and Drop. These zones are used to identify posting processes such as incoming and outgoing goods, intermediate storage or transport processes in real-time without the use of scanners and to post them fully automatically to SAP® EWM.

     

    Transsport orders can be consolidated into an order pool to optimize movement sequences, and networking with all store floor participants (objects and vehicles) ensures an automated exchange of information and status. Different priorities can be assigned and AGVs, depending on availability and position, can be automatically allocated to open transport orders.
