            • as simple as possible, as complex as necessary
              Our WMS offers you an individually tailored, lean and process-oriented warehouse management. Due to the adaptive software TUP.WMS can be modularly designed and rapidly developed.

              How the software manufactory creates customer-centric and individual solutions with standardized tools
              The user of applications within intralogistics is always faced with this challenge: What to pick? A standardized or individual solution? The standard solution may initially appear to be reasonably priced, but covers the required processes only to a limited extent. Anyone who wants to adapt quickly and effectively to changes in their customers’ markets and has recognized the competitive advantage of logistics will want to implement their knowledge and objectives both now and in the future. An individual solution offers this advantage because it is as simple as possible and as complex as necessary.

              Our Material Flow Control System (MFC) calculates in real-time the best route for goods through your heterogeneous materials handling and logistics technology, always taking into account the utilization of available facility resources and work stations.

              The TUP software manufactory: Individual adaptation of the software, best practice standards in the processes
              We add a third option to the choice between standard and individual solutions: the manufactory project. With the SAIL standard, which we helped to develop as part of a working group of the ‘Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau’ (German Engineering Federation), we have created a tool to meet the increasing demands of intralogistics with an interdisciplinary architectural concept.

              The advantages for your intralogistic processes at a glance

              • Highest flexibility and fast response times for later extensions
              • Standardized modules guarantee smooth integration and high reliability
              • Transport management based on the innovative SAIL standard

            • Manual picking at the performance level of an automatic sorter
              Heterogeneous article ranges and strong seasonal fluctuations in demand require a flexible solution that enables economic capacity utilisation. With our manual sort order picking, the individual work steps become a transparent process, from picking to packing. This gives you planning reliability and allows you to deploy your employees where there is a need.

              How the software manufactory principle makes your order picking more flexible and cost-effective
              In order to turn order picking into a clear competitive advantage, market-proven, standardized processes are needed that are adapted to the individual conditions of the location. This is the only way to ensure that the routes are actually the shortest and that personnel bottlenecks are recognized and compensated for in good time.

              The manual sort order picking at a glance

              • Highest possible flexibility for fluctuating order volumes
              • Increased employee motivation through varied workflows with more even workload
              • Cost-effective, flexible scalability
              • Optimal utilization of your intralogistics
              • Performance, throughput and quality of a fully automatic sorter
              • Lower fixed costs and better ecological balance compared to automated solutions

              Synchronize time, personnel and machines order-related and in real time to proactively deal with the day’s workload instead of reacting to bottlenecks. Detailed graphical representations provide your employees with a comprehensive overview of running processes and workload as well as suggested solutions for complex orders.

              Leverage the full potential of individual visualization of your key figures via the software manufactory principle
              All standard solutions can display the transport of goods from A to B and the associated data. The key to the full potential of a control center is to visualize the data in real-time, embed it in the right context, derive recommendations for actions and offer historical information for comparison. Every warehouse is individual, which is why it is essential to customize key figures, user interfaces and process displays.

              TUP.WLD at a glance

              • Throughput and resource utilization are optimized
              • Concise graphical preparation of all data
              • Comprehensive process overview, progress monitoring, manipulation (shuffle or split orders) and performance overview (throughput per aisle, employees per aisle)

With TUP.MES and its straight-forward, transparent operation, the desired traceability in your processes is achieved.

              How the software manufactory principle creates high-quality data sets
              The challenge in intralogistics is not to collect data, but to generate data in an understandable context in order to store them in a historically searchable and, above all, comparable manner. Standard solutions offer general key figures and dashboards in this respect, but they are not adapted to your business processes and therefore do not provide an ideal context. In comparison, the principle of software manufactory relies on market-proven standards, which we adapt to your needs in cooperation with you.

              The advantages for your operating data collection

              • A central system for operational data collection
              • Straightforward collection of the process key figures
              • Combination of manual and automated data collection
              • Use of modern, mobile end devices
              • Transparency in real-time processing


            • Optimized transport routes for your industrial trucks throughout the company premises
              We adapt our forklift guidance system to your individual warehouse topology. The modular approach of our software allows you to easily integrate it in different expansion stages, from manual warehouses to highly automated and networked materials handling technology.

              Control your industrial trucks collaboratively and in real-time with our solution based on the software manufactory principle
              Intralogistics processes require transparency and adaptability in order to develop their full efficiency and, above all, future potential. Without direct communication in real-time, neither human-operated industrial trucks nor driverless transport systems can be reliably utilized, as important information is lost in the simple measurement of start and destination points. Through a modular, customized forklift guidance system, this valuable information can be gained and used to optimize business processes through more balanced workloads or to expand the fleet.

              Your intelligent forklift guidance system at a glance

              • High efficiency and cost-effectiveness through optimized distribution of transport orders
              • Safety through verification of the transported goods at the origin and end point

                How the software manufactory makes your intralogistics more efficient via smart device ecosystems
                When selecting mobile devices, managers in intralogistics are always faced with the decision of whether to use specialized devices with often closed software and server architecture or to purchase various software solutions for a smart device and use them in parallel. The security of specialized systems is bought at the price of a loss of flexibility and speed of adaptation. The use of an ‘open’ mobile device, on the other hand, poses high challenges in terms of integration into existing business processes and reliability.

                • Data glasses for augmented reality and other applications

              • Increase the throughput of your picking process

                Every intralogistics infrastructure has its individual parameters. Technical, structural, and assortment criteria influence the entire picking process. To transform this process into a competitive pillar of your intralogistics, both stages of the picking process must be taken into account: First the planning, then its implementation. Modern calculation modules, so-called solvers, which are implemented in the warehouse management software, support you in the time and cost-efficient planning of the pick. During the realization, everything revolves around the optimal usability for the user. Therefore, TUP has designed the hybrid picking system.

                How our hybrid picking system increases your throughput through user-friendliness

                To ensure high flexibility, the hybrid concept relies on manual participation. The user is the central component in the workflow of the hybrid picking form and is supported in the best possible way – at all conceivable levels. Via the conveyor system, the system provides the picker in sequence with the pallets, thus minimizing distances and throughput times. In addition, the pallets are served vertically at an ergonomically correct gripping height to safeguard the personnel. The aim is to provide the assistance needed at any place and at any time. Experienced employees can move freely within the scope of their tasks due to the responsiveness of the workstations, new personnel does not have to be trained in a time-consuming manner, but is guided step by step by the system through the process.
