Project Execution

Following on from the System Concepting and Design phase of a project, the Project Execution team takes the design team’s proposed idea and engineers the solution. At the end of this phase, a fully tested and fully functioning system will be in operation at the customer’s premises.

Warehouse industry challenges

When it comes to engineering automated supply chain systems, businesses face a range of challenges:

  • Due to the large number of business processes that warehouse systems incorporate, they are highly complex.
  • In such a dynamic industry, supply chain systems must be scalable and adaptable enough to respond to industry changes in the near future.
  • From a project execution perspective, most organizations don’t have the in-house capabilities and industry expertise to develop and implement their own systems.

Key stages of Project Execution

First, the Project Execution team will gain an in-depth technical understanding of your operational requirements and business challenges. They will document everything you need from a technical standpoint, which helps to identify the most suitable system components and which supplier we will procure these products from.

Next, our systems specialists will engineer the in-depth technical aspects of your system. This includes integrating the various components so that the entire solution works in a holistic way. Integration is a complex part of the solution and getting it right first time is crucial. Fortunately, we have developed and implemented thousands of systems worldwide, so our engineers have a wealth of experience to draw on.

The final part of this phase involves the installation and commissioning of the system, followed by functional testing. Once the system is completely tested, your new system goes live.

Following this phase, Körber’s support and maintenance team will manage your system for its entire life cycle.
