Within the scope of the VDMA project "Industry 4.0 Bavaria", the software specialist EURO-LOG is presenting the case study "Delivery at DECKEL MAHO Pfronten GmbH with the Mobile Track app".
Hallbergmoos-Munich – Innovative projects, which are implemented into companies in no time at all and offer a swift return on investment, were presented at the "Quick Wins industry 4.0" event held by the VDMA in Munich on 13 March 2018.
The "Industry 4.0 Bavaria - Production and business models of tomorrow" project organised by the VDMA and promoted by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology aims to support medium-sized companies on their way to becoming digitised, networked enterprises. Indeed, the project captures the diverse approaches to digitisation for faster, more efficient and improved processes, as well as new sources of revenue.
At the event, speakers had the opportunity to demonstrate their module in a 5-minute practical pitch for the first digitisation steps. Horst Neumann, who works in the Procurement and Business Development departments at EURO-LOG, demonstrated how quickly and cost-effectively a successful digitisation can be implemented based on the case study of DECKEL MAHO.
The Mobile Track app is envisaged as a replacement for communication by phone with DECKEL MAHO’s HGV drivers. Thanks to this solution, DECKEL MAHO is able to keep track of deliveries already collected and those soon to be delivered. Checking the down times and waiting times at suppliers as well as transparency regarding HGV utilization are some of the further benefits offered by the solution, and contribute towards digitisation of the supply chain.
By launching Mobile Track, DECKEL MAHO has significantly improved communication with its HGV drivers. Further benefits have also been reaped, such as improved utilisation of HGVs, better planning in goods inwards, documentation of loading by means of photos and evaluation and statistics on down times and waiting times, due to the fast implementation of the logistics app.
