Projects with the University of Würzburg-Schweinfurt at GROUP7 show innovative design proposals for a multi-user warehouse

The pilot project of Prof. Dr. Ulrich Müller-Steinfahrt and his team concerning the analysis and optimization of in-house logistics processes show great potential in the initial phase. In cooperation with GROUP7, two student project teams worked out suggestions on how the centralized goods receipt at the Schwaig location can be designed more efficiently using innovative techniques as well as how the supply and disposal processes of the numerous customer-specific packaging can be implemented more creatively.

By optimization of the processes, lead times can be reduced. GROUP7 had gotten support from the Würzburg-Schweinfurt University of Applied Sciences. Prof. Dr. Ulrich Müller-Steinfahrt, Head of the Institute for Applied Logistics (IAL), brought together the project teams of experienced students from the course of studies in economics with a focus on logistics.

The cases were presented to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Müller-Steinfahrt and GROUP7 and were discussed together with the project team. Subsequently, suggestions for improvement were elaborated and implemented.

GROUP7’s team around Hubert Borghoff give thanks for the excellent cooperation and the sustainable results of the project.
