Siemens SAP solution to improve logistics at textile machine plant

Munich, Sep 21, 2007 - KARL MAYER, one of Germany's leading manufacturers of textile machines, is optimizing its warehouse facilities with the aid of an IT solution from Siemens IT Solutions and Services. For this project, Siemens will implement a system based on SAP LES (Logistics Execution System).

In the past, production processes at the KARL MAYER textile machine plant were complex and involved a large number of small parts warehouses. And this is precisely where Siemens IT Solutions and Services will set to work. In the future, the new IT system based on SAP LES will give the company a standardized platform across all its sites and enable a shift from many small warehouses to a single centralized warehouse. As a result, information will not be stored redundantly in several places at the same time and it will be possible to record available spare parts more quickly. This gives the textile machine manufacturer a better overview of all its logistics processes and allows it to control them more precisely.

The company is looking to this new solution to significantly reduce outlay across all its logistics processes, from incoming to outgoing goods, and to substantially speed up its provision of materials.

Siemens IT Solutions and Services is an internationally leading provider of IT solutions and services. It covers the entire IT service chain from a single source, from consulting to system integration, right through to the management of IT infrastructures. In addition, Siemens IT Solutions and Services extends the range of offerings of the other Siemens Groups to include software developments and IT solutions. With its comprehensive know-how and industry-specific knowledge, Siemens IT Solutions and Services provides measurable added value for its customers. Founded in January 2007, the new Siemens Group employs around 43,000 people and posts annual sales of about 5 billion euros according to U.S. GAAP, of which some 70 percent are generated outside of the Siemens group.
