Kitchen manufacturer Häcker, founded in 1938, has its production facilities in Rödinghausen, Westphalia, where 750 employees work in over 105,000 square meters of production area building kitchens under the brands classic and systemat for kitchen retailers.
After extensive process planning, S&P Computersysteme GmbH implemented the application software for the warehouse management computer and provided all the extended customer-specific SuPCIS warehouse management modules needed for the operation of the new facility. Over what has now become over 10 years of collaboration, S&P is now a reliable partner for adjustments, reorganisations and extensions.
In the meantime, in addition to Plant 2 described below, the logistics for Plant 1 and, since 2007, also Plant 3, are managed and controlled by SuPCIS-L.
The hardware and operating system platform was migrated from IBM AIX to HP-UX.
S&P also provided all the AutoID equipment needed for operation of the intralogistics, such as wireless LAN, mobile handheld and forklift terminals, thermal direct printers (including mobile printers) and barcode scanners.
Häcker also relies on the support of S&P help desk personnel during operation of their logistics and can therefore count on the shortest possible response times in case of an error. In addition to logistics for fronts, body parts (by forklift control system) and accessory parts (by paperless picking) are also controlled through the S&P warehouse management system.
New in 2007:
In Plant 3 for buffering and supply of production, the warehouse management system automatically fills the trays in a tray storage warehouse with replenishments for upcoming days, and they are automatically removed by picking robots.
