The Berliner Stadtreinigung (BSR, Berlin Cleansing Department) is a municipal company in Berlin. It has as its task disposing waste in a safe, efficient and environmentally-friendly manner and creating a clean general impression of Berlin’s streets. Thus the BSR is responsible for some quality of life in Berlin. The high performance of around 5,300 employees is also recognized in a federal comparison.
To make the maintenance of the fleet with around 2,000 vehicles from different manufacturers efficient and effective, a private service information system with spare parts and work values catalogs on the basis of the leading software CATALOGcreator® is going to be used in the near future.
The BSR manages all data, such as internal inventories, suppliers, purchasing prices, and more in the SAP ERP-system. In future, the supplier will provide the raw data for parts catalogs, which are then processed at the BSR with CATALOGcreator® into its own spare parts and work values catalogs. These are linked to SAP so the maintenance crew can quickly determine whether the required spare parts are available at BSR or have to be ordered. It also provides immediate information of how much time has been scheduled for repairs.
