New and extended functions, interfaces and optimal process sequences

Berlin, 12 February 2020 – Within the framework of an expansion and modernization project, Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG has commissioned PSI Logistics GmbH with the integration of the new plant components as well as the warehouse and contract manufacturing processes for the PSIwms process-leading warehouse management system.

As a result of increasing demand and significant company growth, Würth Elektronik has extended the logistics center in Waldenburg by an additional warehouse complex and linked it to the existing site with a new conveyor system.

In addition, the existing automated small parts warehouse (shuttle) was enlarged from six to twelve aisles and the system components at goods receipt (CEP processing stations) and goods issue (picking stations, packing stations, dispatch lines) were more than doubled. The plant expansion, as well as the new reporting points, work stations, bypass and conveyor lines enable Würth Elektronik to implement new warehouse and shipping processes.

For efficient and coordinated control of largely automated production processes, PSIwms was extended with new functions, optimal process sequences, interfaces, strategies and restrictions. The upgrade and release capability of the software guarantees users the latest functionalities for the current system standard.

The Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG is one of the leading manufacturers of electronic and electromechanical components in Europe with 17 production sites worldwide and direct sales in 43 countries.

Based on its own software products, PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy networks, energy trading, public transport) and industry (mining, metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs almost 2,000 persons worldwide.
