Virtual Warehouse Director
Visual Warehouse and iPicking
A virtual warehouse director that fully streamlines storage, picking and route navigation for enhanced logistics.
At CeBIT 2017, we’ll be showcasing our accurate logistics center 3D mapping system, Visual Warehouse, and accompanying voice recognition system, iPicking. The combined solution utilizes an algorithm that has been designed to guide picking personnel on the shortest possible route, with audio and visual instructions. Ideal for streamlining labor utilization and inventory management, Visual Warehouse and iPicking integrates the virtual and the physical to empower employees and enhance operational efficiency. Unleashing the power of the IoT on your enterprise has never been easier.
- Increases productivity by optimizing picking path with shortest route algorithm
- Streamlines labour utilization with real-time, 3D environment and voice navigation system
- Achieve fully-streamlined storage with high-precision indoor location technology
- Removes need for data entry, hands-free for worker mobility
- Helps reduce average picking time 48% (from 4:05 to 2:07)
Why should I implement the system in my logistics operation?
Visual Warehouse and iPicking improve storage efficiency with a free location system, improves picking operations regardless of the workers’ skill and streamlines warehouse operations through route analysis to see where people and items are.
By managing storage data of products accurately in real-time, Visual Warehouse helps to operate a Free Location System to store items in random locations and improve storage efficiency.
By directing users to the right items using the shortest available route using an algorithm, workers spend significantly less time looking for goods.
Making warehouse operations visible by seeing movements of people and goods, track workers and analyze logistics data for the entire warehouse to improve operations.
How do Visual Warehouse and iPicking work?
The solution utilizes three technological elements:
- Real-time location system
- 3D mapping software with shortest route algorithm
- Auto-ID solution & smart devices
Virtual 3D map data and simulated route data is collated, processed and communicated to users in real time via smart devices. Visual Warehouse identifies and presents the shortest route possible to users and eliminates lost-time searching. Voice recognition technology provides a ‘hands-free’, ‘eyes-free’ and ‘process-free’ voice-guided picking system, which bolsters productivity and operational accuracy.
