Fashion and lifestyle company s.Oliver Group invests in new service center for more logistics performance

The German fashion and lifestyle company s.Oliver Group is investing in its logistics as a competitive factor with the construction of a new service center in Dettelbach (Germany), which will improve the delivery service, among others. Commissioning is planned for March 2024. Miebach Consulting supports s.Oliver Group in this strategic project and is responsible for the detailed planning and realization of the logistics center, including the oversight of the construction of the building, tenant fit-out, intralogistics, IT (WMS and WCS implementation) and ramp-up management. In the implementation phase Miebach will utilize state-of-the-art simulation and emulation techniques, which, among other things, significantly reduce the effort and duration of the test phases. "To satisfy our customers in the best possible way and gain further market share, well-organized logistics is a key success factor. Here, short routes, efficient processes and the latest technologies are needed to be fit for the future. With the new concept, we are meeting these requirements and at the same time setting the course for further growth as part of our internationalization and e-commerce strategy" said Oliver Hein, Chief Operating Officer of the s.Oliver Group. Flexible logistics solution meets omnichannel requirements "The s.Oliver Service Center is being built with a focus on omnichannel," stated Ole Grasedyck, Principal, Miebach Consulting and PMO in the service center project. "The digital transformation, changing customer wishes and, last but not least, the corona-related e-commerce acceleration require high-performance and, at the same time, extremely agile logistics in order to be able to handle changing demand volumes and order sizes quickly and efficiently across channels. The logistics center was designed accordingly." The entire logistics processes of the B2C business will be handled by the service center in the future, including the supply of e-commerce customers, VAS activities, and subsequent returns processes. For the B2B sector, the entire reorder process as well as the supply of self-operated areas including floor-ready merchandise will be integrated into the service center. As part of the concept planning, the optimal automation level for s.Oliver was chosen from various alternatives. Manual storage for hanging and flat goods is linked to the upstream and downstream processes via automated transports. An automatic buffer for returns enables prompt availability for goods resale, and a pocket sorter system consolidates orders according to customer specifications and evenly supplies the packing workstations. As a result of the planned concept, this will not only ensure delivery capability, but also realize an increased level of delivery service through same-day shipping for orders placed by 3 p.m. Holistic project and change management as essential building blocks for success Dennis Prandl, overall project manager and Director Global Logistics Service Center s.Oliver Group, remarked: "The relevance of the project to the company's success and the tight timeline for implementation require a strong large-scale project organization with a large number of internal and external stakeholders and interface partners. The holistic consulting services from planning to realization as well as the comprehensive experience in intralogistics projects convinced us to choose Miebach Consulting as our consulting partner." Accordingly, Miebach supports s.Oliver Group with its supply chain engineering expertise at all levels, with extensive experience in comparable large-scale projects in the fashion industry, and a holistic project management approach with PMO and change management organization.

Miebach develops a digital twin to optimize the material flow of Sonae Arauco in Linares

Miebach develops a digital twin to optimize the material flow of Sonae Arauco in Linares

Sonae Arauco, one of the world's leading producers of wood-based panels, contacted Miebach Consulting to develop a "digital twin" to assess and study material flow alternatives and planning policies for its factory in Linares (Jaén). This project is part of the process of digital transformation and technological innovation in which the company has been immersed for years, and which has earned it several awards, including the "Best Digital Transformation Enterprise". Sonae Arauco's roadmap towards Industry 4.0 has led the company to consider state-of-the-art solutions that allow it to simulate its complex planning and production processes in detail. Sonae Arauco's production involves large industrial assets and highly complex processes that make it difficult to operate optimally in the various environments that the company's production plants have to deal with. In this context, Sonae Arauco approached Miebach Consulting to jointly address the creation of a "digital twin" for its Linares plant, which would allow it to study planning scenarios and changes in the control logic of the manufacturing processes in order to strategically evaluate them before implementing them in the processes, control logic, and layouts of the plant. The Miebach Consulting project This project was carried out following the Agile methodology, combining Sonae Arauco's sector knowledge with Miebach Consulting's experience and resources, as well as the latest technological tools available in the market. It was developed in three phases: Mapping of the current situation: the internal material flows were analyzed, documenting all planning processes and control logic of the factory and developing the simulation of the real situation at the moment.Improvement workshops to jointly detect improvement points (quick-wins and long-term improvements).Design of the optimal solution: the "digital twin" model was developed with all the improvements proposed, both for plant planning and flow control logic, by means of complex state-of-the-art algorithms. The "digital twin" developed together with Miebach Consulting has allowed Sonae Arauco to assess and quantify strategic changes, both in planning processes and in material flow processes. Thus, the company now has an advanced digitalization tool that allows accelerating continuous improvement processes in a much more efficient way and assessing in a much more reliable way the global impact that any change in the factory would have. About Sonae Arauco Sonae Arauco is one of the world's leading producers of wood-based solutions. Based in Spain - where it has industrial operations in Cuéllar, Linares and Valladolid - the company is truly committed to corporate sustainability and to the creation of economic, environmental and social value in the regions where it operates. It currently has 3,000 employees of 25 nationalities and 23 industrial and commercial units in 9 countries.
