Bossard Group and KVT-Fastening provide seamless security of supply
with Last Mile Management and Smart Factory Logistics
At the Hannover Messe trade fair, Bossard Group and KVT-Fastening are pushing ahead with digitization in manufacturing companies all the way up to the typical assembly workcell: "Last Mile Management" comprehensively optimizes and digitally app-maps order picking for the milk run/water spider that collect small parts from cen-tral storage points and deliver them to the factory/shop floor. Embedded in the Smart Factory Logistics concept created by Bossard and KVT-Fastening for an uninterrupted supply of small parts by way of SmartBin containers, all items of consumption are managed on demand, and supply orders are distributed via mobile terminals. Optimized route plans preclude unneces-sary travel, and real-time consumption data enhance transparency. Shorter order placement and delivery times also make for more flexibility in plan-ning. Hans van der Velden, Managing Director of Bossard Germany, adds that, "With Last Mile Management, we equip manufacturing companies with a readily integrable Industry 4.0 tool that lends itself to intuitive operation and provides uninterrupted digital depiction of the milk run/water spider. This saves processing time and enables flexible, autonomous management in the face of fluctuating workloads."
At Hannover Messe, the Bossard Group and KVT-Fastening will be showcas-ing their Last Mile Management and Smart Factory Logistics as co exhibitors at the Swiss Pavilion in Hall 6, Stand G22.
