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 system.

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.

Objectives

  • 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

Structure

  • A Plenary and a Board
  • the General Secretariat (Orgalime)
  • the Technical Secretariat (VDMA)
  • the working groups

Work in progress

  • Fundamental Guidelines for Performance “Reliability – Availability – Maintainability (RAM)”.
  • 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.
