A BEEP TO IMPROVE ORDER FULFILLMENT TIMES
In the Year of Speed we are building a new warehouse time measurement system
To further improve fulfillment times, we are designing and building a control station system that tracks all the timing of the various order fulfillment phases; this will allow us to be even more precise in formulating the date of shipment to the customer.
The eight control stations will be based on an All-in-board PC and equipped with a touch screen monitor for interacting with the operators. A barcode reader will make it possible to detect the timing of the various work phases extremely quickly by presenting the work document to the column. Each station will transmit the data to the management system which will process them using a learning machine to formulate analyzes and forecasts.
After an initial data collection phase, the system will be able to predict the exact order preparation times, facilitating the back-office work in identifying the best date to proceed with the shipment. Completely integrated with the New Vertical Warehouses, this project is a further step that fits into the general reorganization that we have undertaken in the Year of Speed.
