Bosch plants in Feuerbach and Homburg

Nexeed Industrial Application System makes intralogistics more flexible

Bosch plants in Feuerbach and Homburg


When it comes to intralogistics, efficiency and flexibility naturally go hand in hand. To increase both, the Bosch plants in Feuerbach and Homburg rely on applications from the Nexeed Industrial Application System from Bosch Connected Industry. The Stock Management application provides maximum transparency of current stock in the intelligent supermarket in Feuerbach, while the Transport Management application enables needs-oriented milk run routes in Homburg.

The successes at a glance

Maximum transparency

thanks to real-time bookings and dynamic transport routes

Optimal usage and space savings

Automated ordering system reduces material stock

Efficient and dynamic milk runs

Needs-oriented route plans ensures even capacity utilization


The Bosch plants in Feuerbach and Homburg (Germany) already had ingenious systems and initial digitalization methods in place before introducing the Nexeed Industrial Application System. Still, efficiency was being hampered by static milk run routes, booking errors and high inventory costs. As is often the case in production plants, Homburg had fixed routes that were followed without fail – irrespective of the actual requirements. Higher transport costs at peak times, particularly through the additional use of AGVs, resulted in greater complexity on the shop floor. Now the Nexeed Industrial Application System increases efficiency in both plants.


The Stock Management application now allows the Feuerbach plant to see real-time bookings, providing maximum transparency regarding the current stock of materials in the supermarket. An automated ordering system makes the employees' work easier and helps to keep material stocks lower. In line with the pull principle, the software only orders what is required. The application also identifies the optimum use of the available lanes to ensure additional space gains. If an employee accidentally sorts materials into the wrong lanes, a "put-to-light" signal notifies them of the error and directs them to the correct aisle. This effectively prevents errors, thereby avoiding time-consuming searches for misplaced stock.
