Fourth Research Project Completed

BUTZBACH. LGI Logistics Group International GmbH and the Albstadt-Sigmaringen University of Applied Sciences have completed a research project for the fourth time. The soon-to-be industrial engineers developed measures to reduce quality costs. They presented their ideas in summer – with benefit for LGI. “The students have achieved more than I expected in advance. It is impressive how much the group has achieved in the short time. It was very worthwhile”, says Dr. Christian Huber, head of the Industrial logistics devision.

Huber had submitted the topic for the fourth research project with the university. Costs-of-non-Quality are an important topic at the Butzbach site after the move. After a kick-off event at the end of April, the analysis phase started for the students. They evaluated data, looked at the logistics processes on site and interviewed employees. Based on the observations and analyses, the students collected ideas on how LGI can optimize the processes and thereby reduce Costs-of-non Quality.

Altogether, the students collected more than 50 individual ideas. “Some of them can be implemented quickly and at low cost”, explains Christian. “For example, we can attach thin anti-slip mats to the forks to prevent goods from slipping down so easily.” Other ideas must still be examined and coordinated with the customer.

Finally, the students also presented a comprehensive concept on how LGI can reduce quality costs at other locations. “The project arouses students’ enthusiasm for disciplines in logistics that they had never been familiar with before”, says Dr. Bernd Widmann (Head of Legal & Compliance), who is a lecturer at the university. The results are definitely impressive!
