_01

Transportplanung

Intershuttle high-frequency
transport planning

Baseline

  • Time slots and high frequency hourly transports
  • Production-based outbound planning for source plant
  • Truck utilization upgrade potential
  • Blurred data resolution for weekly orders
  • Heuristic reach-based planning

Approach

  • Custom planning constraints based on current stock and orders
  • Coarse and fine-granular planning for weekly and daily detailed scheduling
  • Predictive material flows for expected material in stock behavior
  • Time-slot based reach lists based on data-driven full picture

Benefit

  • 1 digit savings for a huge number of trucks
  • Optimized reach coverage at destination source
  • Realtime reach and transport view instead of blurred, daily snapshots

Optimized Delivery Schedules OEM

Baseline

  • Well organized transport network
  • Fluctuation in demands
  • No manual optimization of FTLs

Approach

  • MasterScheduler with custom constraints for various different setups of supplier groups
  • Shifted demands for full coverage
  • Mixed milkrun vs FTL tactical planning
  • High lead-time full container load optimization
  • Dashboard warehouse user roles for incoming transport and ressource assignment
  • Interface to ERP: QAD
  • PDF pickup sheets send by EDI

Benefit

  • 2 digit savings
  • Standardized planning process
  • Structured transport overview dashboards
  • Control of supplier reliability

FTL / Millkrun planner for Tier-1 in Germany

Baseline

  • Specific packaging rules and constraints are a pain point in manual Excel planning
  • Huge unused potential due to only average milkrun planning methods.

Approach

  • Tactical and operational transport planning with MasterScheduler for whole supplier network
  • Tailor-made packaging constraints
  • Simple milkrun control vs FTL rules for optimized allocation and decision making
  • SAP integration and scheduling automation

Benefit

  • 2 digit savings
  • Standardized planning tool
  • Optimal milkrun supplier utilization in synergy

Duvenbeck: FTL/LTL Planner

Baseline

  • Manual non-efficient transportation planning and ordering leads to high transportation costs and half-empty trucks
  • Weight and volume constraints in combination with FTL and LTL tariffs are hard to optimize for human planners
  • Storage and capital constraints make the problem even more challenging
  • Contracts allow the OEM limited changes in demands even for the tactical planning horizon

Approach

  • Mathematical modelling of the inventory and transportation problem
  • Focus on full truck load first
  • ERP system as single source of truth
  • Optimization tool as an external addon
  • Results are fed back into the ERP system
  • Development of a customized optimization algorithm tailored to customer-specific constraints
  • Stochastic demand model in combination with robust optimization
  • Expansion to further sites and transportation modes

Benefit

  • Truck utilization increased from 70-90% to >98.5%
  • Expected yearly savings: 5-figure EUR sum per site
  • Additional consolidation effects when integrating multiple sites

_02

Supply Chain

Optimization of Textile Warehouse

Baseline

  • Deployment of a fully automated warehouse in Spain
  • Throughput not high enough to fulfil promises contained in contracts with client
  • Danger of high contractual penalty

Approach

  • Analysis of the picking process
  • Mathematical model containing the key influencing factors on throughput
  • Development of PoC for single order picking station
  • Improvement of basic picking algorithm (from PoC) through analytics-based order partitioning
  • Development of C++ code integrated in warehouse automation system

Benefit

  • Contractual penalty could be avoided
  • Fully advanced picking algorithm gives 20% improvement over base version through analytics-based task partitioning
  • Fully automated warehouse with efficient picking order computed on the fly by the warehouse automation system
