How alphalogs was able to resolve the cramped conditions at HARDECK.
Möbel HARDECK is one of the Ruhr’s largest furniture companies. Over a floor space of 40,000 sq m spanning multiple buildings, it presents modern bedrooms, dining rooms and living rooms, as well as small and large furniture and accessories based on specific themes. The family business founded in 1937 stores its stock at Bochum’s central warehouse. alphalogs optimised the logistics at Möbel HARDECK’s central warehouse in terms of efficiency and profitability. The alphalogs analysis showed that HARDECK’s central warehouse required optimised processes which took into account the cramped nature of the logistics facility.
- Determining the planning bases
Existing logistics operations were assessed and analysed. alphalogs documented the results in a comprehensive interim report. Current layout, material-handling equipment, processes and IT, material flow, volumes, schedules, staff and costs all played a key role here.
- Systems planning
The formulated tables, graphs and diagrams were documented in a clear overview. The data was reduced to the main facts of the current logistics situation and future requirements. This documentation then served as the basis for the systems planning.
- Profitability calculation
The compiled data was used to optimise the existing logistics concept in terms of clear material flow, sufficiently high performance and handling areas, clear processes and profitability. alphalogs devised a technical system solution for each functional area. The newly optimised processes also taken into account the extremely cramped nature of the logistics facility
