For an efficient analysis of the intra-logistic processes, a statistical processing of the collected process data is required. Here, the figures have to be grouped in key performance indicators (KPI). The LFS module "Web-based data warehouse / SQL" offers a comprehensive reporting and controlling tool based on the Microsoft SQL Server 2005. It provides the user with a structured overview of the current situation in the warehouse using effective data collection. The simple usability thanks to the intuitive design of the graphical user interface allows a quick search for the required figures which can then serve as a basis for decision making when monitoring the warehouse processes.
With the web-based data warehouse, it can for example be displayed,
- which employee has stored
- how many pallets
- in a specific period of time.
Here, we differentiate between two-stage putaway (the pallet is placed on a buffer location and can be picked up by another fork lift driver) and direct putaway (one fork lift for picking the pallet up and storing it).
