Reftrofit – what are the benefits?
TELOGS cites a number of advantages for the SMS group resulting from the retrofit. For example, Jürgen Dönges, retrofit specialist and managing director of TELOGS, reports improved technical availability and an increase in safety according to today’s standards – which was the trigger for the project. “Retrofit is not always the right solution,” says Jürgen Dönges, “but very often our analyses and the subsequent key figures show that there is enormous potential here to increase efficiency for our customers. It doesn’t always have to be a completely new warehouse; a lot can still be taken out of the inventory for our customers.” Reduced energy consumption, for example, is also part of this. And also the improved mapping of warehouse processes with more key figures, in order to be able to derive more targeted management measures. The result of the retrofit for the SMS group is, for example, that the system control is now visualized. This offers more convenience and a better overview of the processes, says Jürgen Dönges. “Before, we had a very machine-oriented visualization. Now the focus is on visual control of the processes and obtaining more process data.”
