Industry 4.0 – the Future of the Supply Chain

Digitalization and automation in the entire logistics chain.

How do supply-chain processes look like in the industry 4.0 era?

The editorial staff of Trend Report, a business magazine and supplement of the prestigious financial newspaper Handelsblatt, spoke with Lars Schmermbeck, Regional Channel Manager DACH Region at ZEBRA TECHNOLOGIES, and Hans-Jörg Tittlbach, ICS Group CEO, about future value chains. The following interview was published on 26 October 2015 in the Handelsblatt/Trend Report.


Hans-Jörg Tittlbach, CEO ICS Group

Hans-Jörg Tittlbach, CEO ICS Group

All experts agree that Industry 4.0 will change logistics. Mr. Tittlbach, what is a logistics process in the Industry 4.0 era?
Hans-Jörg Tittlbach: Logistics in the age of industry 4.0 is essentially based on dynamic, autonomous processes with smart shipments and load carriers. Let me show this with the example of a package that is shipped to a customer. The package is equipped with intelligence; it knows where it is and recognizes independently delays in the shipment process. It communicates its status to the back office and ERP system, like our Stradivari software. In the event of a delay, it is able to trigger redundant process that redirects the package to alternative routes or shipping options – without human intervention. In important cases, for example, a replacement package is sent on its way.

What are the concrete benefits of self-controlling processes?
Tittlbach: Through improved transparency and control, in-time and on-demand will work much better than today. Back to our package: The recipient will not only know the date of delivery, but also the time window. Second and third delivery attempts no longer occur, since the recipient can decide when and where to receive the package. These are processes that are in theory already available today.

Mobile Device Management in Industry and Logistics

Proactive Use – Making the Most of Automation

In manufacturing companies, BYOD plays a subordinate role. Instead, it is essential to significantly improve productivity and availability metrics in the company when using mobile devices. This is enabled by the proactive management of an heterogeneous infrastructure with industrial terminals, such as vehicle terminals, tablets, scanners, etc.
