MineralBrunnen RhönSprudel Egon Schindel GmbH entirely fulfills the logistic standard introduced at the end of June, the IFS Logistic Standard: This result came about thanks to the experts of the FRESENIUS INSTITUTE who tested the company and other companies belonging to the RhönSprudel Group against up to 98 criteria within the framework of a corresponding certification process. In order to fulfil this catalogue of requirements without any noticeable additional expenditure, RhönSprudel relies on a correspondingly designed warehouse management system – the LFS 400 Warehouse Management System from Ehrhardt Partner Group. The software solution optimally supports all processes required in the IFS logistic audit.
The introduction of the IFS Logistic Standard means that a watertight quality assurance is possible throughout the entire production and supply chain of MineralBrunnen RhönSprudel Egon Schindel GmbH. Among other focal points, the new standard specialises in processes like goods handling (first in, first out) and batch traceability. In the LFS 400 warehouse management system, retrieval strategies such as FIFO can be defined and modified accordingly to the individual requirements. Batch traceability is automatically guaranteed by the system. The data necessary for these processes, such as Best Before Date (BBD) and batch number are recorded at goods-in at MineralBrunnen RhönSprudel GmbH and passed on to and documented in the stock data. „The IT supported processes of the LFS 400 warehouse management system are optimally adapted to the needs of producing companies like RhönSprudel, but also to trade and logistic service providers. The processes contribute decisively to the fact that movement and storage of goods are no longer weak points of quality management and new quality standards such as the current IFS Logistic Standard are fulfilled“, explains Marco Ehrhardt, executive associate of Ehrhardt + Partner. „Our warehouse management system ensures transparent and continuous traceability of goods as well as optimum handling of the stored goods.“
