Lufthansa Technik Success Story

ProGlove´s Solution for Logistics

Lufthansa Technik introduced ProGlove to boost its logistics processes to be as efficient as possible – especially at its warehouse entries. Prioritized shipments are identified and processed more quickly by an alert from the MARK device on the back of the worker’s hand – even before the standardized storage process begins. Employees were not required to manually match shipment numbers as they did previously. In effect, the error rate was significantly decreased. Workers can now move more freely, receive deliveries, and enter the items barcode more accurately.

Logistics providers across the world are feeling the pressure to establish dynamic, flexible, and more mobile processes that allow them to confidently handle changes in consumer demand.

SUBSTANTIAL RESULT: Digital transformation projects can be critical to maintaining competitive supply chains and easy to implement solutions like ProGlove are quick, high-impact wins. By introducing a lightweight, ergonomic wearable scanner to various workflows customers see time savings, increased quality, and a boost in productivity.

Using ProGlove’s wireless and wearable scanner gives frontline workers the flexibility to work from anywhere in the warehouse and the integrated worker feedback helps to raise the quality of output through visual, acoustic and haptic feedback. Based on our research this can lead to a 33% reduction in common picking errors.

The potential of the scanner with display is especially important in the processes where we must react quickly and flexibly.

Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services

Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services (LTLS) is the leading provider of aircraft maintenance, repair, overhaul and modification services for civil aircrafts. To create smart solutions for its customers around the world, Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services (LTLS) combines the skills of a global logistics company with an in-depth and unique knowledge of the aviation industry.

Lufthansa Technik Challenge

Almost 65,000 different items are stored at Lufthansa Technik’s Munich site. On average, each part is stored and retrieved twice a year. For security reasons, continuous parts tracking is of the utmost importance. Start delays due to technical defects are not only costly, but lead to subsequent expenditures in the procurement of adequate spare parts. The highest safety standards must be met. These are the main reasons why they decided to switch to ProGlove.

ProGlove Solution

Subsequently to the integration of ProGlove wearable scanners, in a matter of seconds every incoming part is captured in the system, information is available on how fast and where items have to be transported and ultimately items with the Aircraft on Ground (AOG) warning signal are identified and handled with the highest priority. By giving operators direct visual, acoustic, and haptic feedback on their working steps, ProGlove’s smart wearables helped Lufthansa Technik Logistics Services eliminating mistakes and improving process quality.

The ProGlove Effect @scale

Since 2018, LTLS has used ProGlove in the check-in and packing stations for aviation shipping and handling to meet their ever-tightening Calculated Take Off Times (CTOT), safely.
