General staff planning
Whether it’s the regular replacement of hose lines, the modernisation of locks or the conversion of installations: LSBG’s projects are extensive and complex. At a joint advance inspection, a list is therefore made of all hose lines and the required connections and fittings, as well as the valves and pumps, and their special structural features are recorded. “On this basis, we plan materials and employees, coordinate the work flow and prepare ourselves for the assembly situation - everything in close consultation with our customer,” reports Jochen Meyer from the Hamburg-Billbrook branch. Because the hose lines are laid outdoors, weather and ozone resistance play a major role: sun and rain as well as wide temperature fluctuations place a much greater strain on the materials than, for example, the constant ambient conditions experienced in a dry factory building. In order to simplify future inspection work, the LSBG is currently introducing a hose management system. New hose assemblies are managed using the My.HANSA‑FLEX portal, and existing assemblies are also being retrofitted with the X-CODE.
