The Intralogistic Systems Product Group is a horizontal Group within
FEM. It does address single materials handling product and complete
turnkey systems. It focuses on automation, control and IT, and
integration of several types of materials handling equipment into one
The Intralogistic Systems Product Group is open to system
integrators and suppliers of complete systems (companies signing turnkey
contracts). The Group will invite FEM suppliers of individual materials
handling products to cooperate on interfaces between their equipment
and complete systems.
- Provide an international forum to elaborate on technical and business matters
- Develop reliable market transparency on the basis of statistical data received from the participants
- Develop technical rules and guidelines at a European level
- Define interface and communication standards
- Define consistent technical language
- A Plenary and a Board

Work in progress
- Fundamental Guidelines for Performance “Reliability – Availability – Maintainability
- Guideline FEM 9.831:1995: "Calculation principles of storage and
retrieval machines -Tolerances, deformations and clearances in the high-bay
warehouse". Parts on clearences, deformation and tolerances for single and
double deep rack types will be published end of 2008 / beginning of 2009, and a
separate document on interfaces will continue to be developed.
- Statistics:the FEM Intralogistic Systems Product Group carries
out a yearly exercise to gather statistics for “Order Intake Intralogistic
Systems - OIIS” and international statistics for S/R-Machines. The aim of the
OIIS statistics is to register certain markets taking into account the place of
installation of the Intralogistic System.
The statistic started in 2005, and the following companies are participating:
Alstef Automation, Cinetic Transitique, Savoye, DAMBACH Lagersysteme GmbH &
Co.KG, TGW Logistics Group, Dematic GmbH, LTW Lagertechnik GmbH, SSI Schäfer
Noell GmbH, Swisslog AG, Vanderlande Industries Nederland B.V.
In 2006, the total number of projects reached 214,
ranging from € 0,5 up to € 20 millions.
