Storage Management

Content Type: Industry Template
Categories: User Interface,Visualization


Do your plant personnel have long walking distances and search times due to manually and decentralized organized storage areas? Does the savings from changes in that area not justify a return on investment, so new storage hardware systems would be considered? Then follow the project of the Siemens Motion Control Factory: given the factory situation, a team of plant IT and plant experts began developing the Storage Management application with Mendix. They spent one week on ideation and another week on development – and it was ready!

Plant personnel can check out their needed assets, are guided to the correct storage location, and will be proactively alerted if there is an insufficient supply of assets. The Storage Manager can view defective assets and will be alerted when a minimum volume of an asset is reached, allowing them to start the repair process or the SAP asset order process.
