Do more with less resources. Reduce workers’ travel time within the warehouse and assign an ordered sequence of tasks based on location. Whether it’s any WMS task or based on priority/age or proximity. Or even add in cycle counting tasks to keep track of the actual stock. Boltrics’ WMS helps you create optimization savings with the available task interleaving options.
Directly assign an order to the order picker with direct assignment. Take different things into consideration. For example, automatically check the inventory with cycle counting. When the inventory is adequate and does not cause any bumps in the process, orders can be assigned until the maximum capacity of the wagon used is reached. The maximum capacity can also be optimized based on maximum weight per wave or the amount of big/small orders that fit on a wagon. When the set is complete, the assigned documents are cleared and the picking can start.
Make sure your warehouse employees pick the right orders and assign orders based on:
- Available stock
- Max number of orders for the customer
An extra round? Definitely not
Besides the capacity, assigning orders makes it possible to assign orders to an employee per zone. In this way orders can be picked from the same part of the warehouse, preventing the order picker from needing long routes through the entire warehouse in just one wave. Taking the routes of the order picker in mind, the time of a wave is drastically reduced.
Ordered today, delivered tomorrow. Priority tasks in progress
Make sure your goods leave the warehouse right on time and introduce priority task. Because in certain situations, picking and loading goods before a certain time is the highest priority. Our WMS makes sure you can determine what should be picked, when and how. How? Assigning orderpick makes it possible to prioritize the orders. This can be done by implementing a time-gap. Using the planned end date of an order to prioritize them without conflicting with normal pick orders. The priority orders are sent earlier and therefore picked earlier too.
Our WMS offers different interleaving flavors that provide the ability to increase the productivity:
Based on sorting
Max number of orders for the customer
Max content of a pick carrier
Priority on the order/warehouse activity
e.g. date time fields
