JST-OTTO Group: Control centre

JST control center: Around the clock, employees at the Hamburg control center ensure the central system monitoring and process control of the Otto Group.

Already for the third time the Otto Group has chosen Jungmann Systemtechnik as a powerful partner. After the relevant expert committees had critically examined the market, JST was again chosen to re-equip the Hamburg control center. Equipped with the latest generation of high-resolution business displays and the tried and tested MultiConsoling® , the IT department of the globally active trade and service group is perfectly equipped for the future.

All events of the systems and processes that control the Otto Group’s entire logistical flow converge at the control center, which is manned around the clock – from order acceptance to delivery to the customer. Director Reinhold M. Segert: “This is where the central system is monitored and the processes of the Otto Group are controlled”. So it is easy to understand that the control station crew has high demands on technology and ergonomics.

For the current project “Update to DVI”, the Otto project team deliberately chose Jungmann again against the background of “many years of cooperative partnership” (Segert). Maximum demands were placed on functionality, performance and operability of the individual components. During the changeover from analogue to digital video transmission, the image display was once again consistently optimised. The result: A large display wall, which guarantees an absolutely brilliant image display.

The ideal addition to this is: JST MultiConsoling®. Via the graphical user interface myGUI
® it is possible for the administrators to comfortably display current events from the large display wall on the workstation displays, or to exchange the screen contents from workstation to workstation. Of course the individual views can also be displayed as Big Picture on the large display wall.

Conclusion by Klaus Steffen, Head of Data Center Management: “Monitoring is much clearer with the new technology. MultiConsoling® in particular contributes to this”. Project manager Andreas Scollick agrees with this: “The joint development and change from the graphic controller to MultiConsoling® in conjunction with the myGUI® software and the APIs in the LCD display was particularly positive. My expectations have been exceeded and make our work easier every day.”

The extent to which the team of employees also appreciates this reduction in workload is probably best summed up by Reinhold M. Segert: “The greatest achievement in this project is the satisfaction of the employees!
