MDS – the efficient solution for mobile logistics management

The Mobile Device System (MDS) was recently developed by Dr. Thomas + Partner in cooperation with Swiss-AS. The idea of linking a state-of-the-art warehouse management system with AMOS was created with CrossConsense, a Swiss-AS’ partner. AMOS customers may now license an efficient mobile solution for their warehouse management which is fully linked to AMOS.

In Dr. Thomas + Partner, Swiss-AS has found a partner with many years of experience in the logistics field in general and particularly in mobile data collection. The MDS has been especially adapted for the high demands of the aviation industry and is a mobile user interface for modern intra-logistics processes, covering the areas of material taking, material transfer and inventory control.

Launch customer TUIfly up and running with MDS

Employees at TUIfly, an AMOS customer in Hannover, Germany, where the MDS is already installed are using mobile hand-held devices in their daily work. A precondition to implement the MDS is a WLAN connection in the warehouse and barcodes for all store locations.

The constant connection with Wi-Fi enables a data exchange in real time while providing people with prompt and accurate information on all pending operations. All transaction bookings, such as receiving goods, picking/returning of material, location transfer bookings and inventory adjustment postings are directly done with the hand-held devices connected with the host system.

Advantages of implementing MDS

At a glance, the MDS adds value in the following areas:

  • Less errors since no longer manual data entry
  • Transfer, taking and inventory of stock is controlled directly by the system
  • All bookings can be made locally
  • Running processes can be tracked online
  • Out of stock items are immediately detected

Implementation approach and further inquiries

Swiss-AS is now facing a strong demand for the implementation of the MDS which has been well received by the AMOS community.

Regarding all pre- and post-sales inquiries, Swiss-AS will act as a single point of contact for the customers and coordinate the collaboration with Dr. Thomas + Partner.
