Following the successful startup in their cement plants Esch/Luxembourg (Fig.) and Göllheim/Germany, the Dyckerhoff AG has now commenced with the international rollout of FRITZ & MACZIOL’s logistics solution VAS. The new system is currently being implemented on the basis of a template in another cement plant in Germany, as well as at the plants in the Ukraine. In several workshops, the different requirements of the plant’s processes were analyzed and redefined. The template rollout is now being launched at all sites on the basis of these newly optimized and harmonized logistics processes. This is especially essential for the value flows between VAS and Dyckerhoff AG’s central SAP system. Since 2004, Dyckerhoff AG has belonged to the Italian Buzzi Unicem Group. „We conduct a major part of the logistics processes using SAP. A significant criterion in selecting the new solution was the approved and easy interconnection to the SAP Sales and Distribution module. In the future, we moreover want to map incoming raw materials by integrating VAS in SAP Materials Management,“ says Dyckerhoff AG’s CIO, Wolfgang Peseke, an important reason for deciding in favor of VAS. For Dyckerhoff, the guaranteed software maintenance and corresponding service provided by FRITZ & MACZIOL were further fundamental decision criteria.
