The deployment of the robotized warehouse on the AIRBUS site is the result of real collaborative work between the AIRBUS, KUEHNE + NAGEL and IDEA teams.
The feedback from our "Proof Of Concept" has enabled us to scale the solution to adapt it to AIRBUS constraints. We have thus added a set of solutions, including a laser pointing system, to assist the operator in achieving irreproachable reliability. Today, robots circulate continuously over a perimeter of 5,000 references. The challenges of this deployment are to achieve surface area and productivity gains of 30% by reaching a rate of 110 picks per hour.
The launch of a new aircraft is always a challenge for us. We must succeed in integrating more and more references on a surface constrained by the factory's ramp-up.
The experimentation of a robotized warehouse on an IDEA site convinced us of the positive impact of such an implementation at AIRBUS. Within a few months, the project was set up and validated. Deployment was then completed in record time. This jointly initiated approach based on the aeronautical "Goods to Man" is a concrete illustration of our reflections on the AIRBUS logistics of tomorrow.
