More flexible delivery times and a general increase in volume – higher demands in these fields are constant drivers in the search for optimum processes. Sapa Building Systems GmbH were looking for optimised processes based on the latest technical knowledge so that they could put the technical capacity of their warehouse to even better use.
With the help of fehr Lagerlogistik AG and its process experts, Sapa Building Systems GmbH realises demanding, functional and energy-efficient façades to the highest quality level. The computer-based simulation provided the customer with a platform that visualised the expected changes in advance.
Real customer data were analysed to visualise cost and benefit factors. This resulted in the confidence needed to make an investment.
The planned optimisations in the processes were clearly visualised with realistic simulations. We were kept up to date about the current progress and our own ideas were also integrated in the simulation.
