The open and completed workloads of the respective working day are displayed in bar charts. Every day, around 1,200 transport order dispositions are processed in the high-bay warehouse and around 9,000 in the picking area.
Peakboard logs on to the SAP system as a user every 90 seconds, runs the corresponding queries and then pulls the data onto the respective dashboard. Prym uses a total of three monitors with two different templates. The employees in the high-bay warehouse and in the picking department are each informed about the respective workload via one monitor at the entrance to their area. The two templates from picking and high-bay warehouse are displayed alternately to the warehouse control center.
“A huge advantage for us is that we can control the processing of transport orders with Peakboard much more efficiently,” says Hösch. “With Peakboard, the control center can see instantly whether there are many transport orders for replenishment, for example, and can accordingly deduct additional forklift drivers from goods receipt to goods replenishment. We can react much more flexibly to the respective situation.”
In addition, the approximately 40 employees from high-bay warehouses and order picking who are using the Peakboard benefit from the newly gained transparency: they can see exactly where they are, what they have achieved and feel motivated to ‘set the orders on green’.
