Fashion retailer, USA: Goods-to-person shuttle system
CycloneCarrier enables density, performance and operational flexibility to adapt to changes.
The entire system is controlled by Swisslog’s SynQ software, which is integrated with the customer’s ERP system.
Replenishment requirements aren’t evenly balanced across all of our stores, so the challenge becomes how do you balance work across all of your pickers so one isn’t backlogged while another is idle? A key feature of the software is its ability to dynamically route totes to balance workloads across pickers and maintain consistent productivity.
We worked with Swisslog to implement dynamic routing of totes to evenly distribute work across all available pickers. The system is able to recognize what pickers need work and dynamically re-route totes to that picker before they become idle to enable consistent levels of productivity.
