Incoming Goods

This is the start of the whole process chain in the warehouse. The data collected here forms the basis for all further processes. Its accuracy determines the quality of all subsequent processes. This is why correct processing of incoming goods prevents costs being incurred during the subsequent process.

Order Picking

Order picking lies at the heart of your distribution centre. This is why we want to understand your structures and requirements first before we plan and implement your customised order picking system with you. Order picking brings goods and orders together. The two information flows need to be synchronised at precisely this moment. The choice of order picking system therefore has a major influence on response times and costs. Shortest path selection is the top priority, as order picking takes up a major proportion of the manual processes.

Our warehouse management system opens up many opportunities for you here:

Outgoing goods

Packages pass through various processes in the outgoing goods department – and these depend on the carrier, outgoing relations and variety. At the core, all of them are alike in that the packages for a shipment have to be loaded by the time of departure. If picking takes place in numerous warehouse areas, all of the parts of a shipment are brought together at the latest in the outgoing goods department.

Tailored, Intelligent Solutions

Imagine that you would like to buy a car, but there are only two models to choose from: the first is developed and built entirely to your specifications. You get your dream car. Delivery time, costs, safety? Almost impossible to calculate. The second model has been made on an assembly line for years, is available quickly and is significantly cheaper, but you don’t have any choice: everything is standard, from engine performance to interior fittings and colour. An average car. Will one of the cars be a hit?

Intralogistics IT has been facing this very problem for some time: standard solution or customised solution? Following years of intensive research, we are now breaking new ground with our technology and combining the best of both worlds: the greatest flexibility with maximum security are the key parameters in our adaptive software. The warehouse management system from DR. THOMAS + PARTNER epitomises this approach. It maps all of the processes in your warehouse, both simple manual stages and expansion stages, with the maximum level of automation and the highest outputs.

A Balanced Mix Of Innovative And Standard Elements

As the underlying processes in every distribution centre are the same or at least similar, yet widely differing demands are placed on them, we have developed our TUP.WMS as a modular IT system. We start with a standard platform with basic services and add exactly those IT modules that are specifically required for your inventory management – and no more. From incoming goods, storage, order picking, assembly and packing through to outgoing goods, everything is possible. If you would like to expand your facility at a later time, we simply add the components required for this – exactly when they are needed. The economic benefit for you is enormous: you only buy what you actually need. The tried and tested, standardised components also guarantee a high degree of reusability and easier adaptation for later expansions.

In this way, you actively reduce your investment and the project duration.
