Merchandise Execution

  • Capacity of separating big (whole pallets) and small quantities, in goods with stock maintenance, in order to increase the picking velocity.
  • In stock maintenance, it is possible to do a stock reservation for customers’ requests, in order to ensure the customers’ priorities.
  • When we are using a stock reservation there is the possibility of recuperating lines of customers’ requests, which have been rejected because of lack of stock in previous processing.
  • Flexible synchronization scheme between the picking of small amounts in fixed picking localizations and picking refilling movements (let-downs) with the containers located in the buffer (stock area).
  • Capacity to pick several clients, in parallel, by the same operator.
  • Use of the concept of neighbourhood localizations in order to select the operator who is closer to the place where the container movement begins. This way, the distance covered is reduced substantially and the global productivity increases.
  • Support of different picking methodologies without stock maintenance (processes Just In Time), namely, line picking or according to the item (Flow-through) and Cross-Docking of one mono-item or multi-items already executed by the supplier.
  • Methodology used for mixed picking (picking for each good but with stock maintenance) like the Two Step Distribution, the Two Step Picking or Batch Picking.
  • For the goods with catch weight we offer the use of the picking at medium weight per container.
  • Ability to collect picking data by reading UCC EAN 128 bar code labels.
  • Different quality control methods to check picked containers .
  • Ability to make picking a second time (Backpicking) by initiative of the RF operators, or by imposition of team supervision, to recover lines not picked in the first attempt.
  • Availability of various planning instruments to estimates the resources needed to produced the work that has to be done.
  • Continuous updating of the progress of the work done, each time an operator picks all or part of a line of a picking document.
  • Voice Picking
