Can an entire manufacturing plant be relocated without interrupting delivery schedules? Steyr Powertrain, a fledgling company within the automotive sector, has shown how it can be done. agiplan gave a helping hand.
They were out of the starting-blocks! As part of the corporate restructuring plan within Steyr-Daimler-Puch Fahrzeugtechnik the components unit of the Austrian automotive supplier was to be spun off as a separate company. The new affiliate, manufacturer of drivetrains, engine components and axle modules, was christened Steyr Powertrain, or SPT for short. It would now have to stand – and indeed run – on its own two feet.
Here at Cooperativa Terremerse, a well-known manufacturer of animal feed, we once again proved that we are equal to just about any challenge. Taking the bull by the horns, we developed a cutting-edge dynamic storage solution by the name of „Wheel Flow“.
Until recently, Terremerse had relied on a conventional drive-in system to store a small range of products – in large volumes. However, the company was soon pursuing a more flexible strategy, with an extended product portfolio, smaller volumes and faster stock turnover. Too much for the drive-in storage system to handle.
Interroll to the rescue! In close co-operation with GS Scaffalature, a leading producer of storage systems, we integrated its state-of-the-art Wheel Flow technology into the existing storage system, thus creating additional space for Terremerse’s products. A consistent and tailor-made solution with minimal capital expenditure. Refreshingly different!
Today’s managers are faced with information overload. Confronted with a profusion of company data and masses of Internet-based material, decision-makers are finding it increasingly difficult to keep abreast of things. In fact, more and more time is spent on trying to stay afloat in today’s flood of information – time that could be put to better use at the helm of the company. A fair chunk of the day seems to be dedicated to sorting out important information from bumf and clutter. Help is on the way, in the form of Information Logistics. It provides solutions aimed at reducing the complexity of information processes in and between companies.
The world’s major inventions have one thing in common: they are a boon and a blessing – but also a curse. This applies to the steam engine as well as to the automobile. And the same is true of computers and networks. According to a study conducted by the University of California, Berkeley, every year sees an increase in the amount of information made available via the Internet – an extra two billion gigabytes to be precise. Indeed, it generally only takes six to eight months for a company to double its repository of data. And many companies, it seems, have yet to master the intricacies of processing electronic information: time-consuming compilation of data and laborious categorisation are gnawing away at the efficiency gains achieved through automated structures and decision-making processes.

Although Pushback has been designed as a dedicated LIFO system, it can also be used for buffer purposes, i.e. for the interim storage of goods later to be transferred to dynamic FIFO-based systems. In this case, the last batch to be stored within the Pushback system would subsequently become the first to be transferred to the dynamic storage area and the first to be available for picking. The perfect partnership for fast-moving goods in peak seasons.
