What is a job scheduler?

LOGIA’s job scheduler automatically prioritizes, aggregates, and assigns picking and replenishment jobs. Among other things, orders can be prioritized according to shipping time and availability of goods, depending on the situation. For example, if inventory at a picking location is insufficient, the order is not activated. The job scheduler combines picking orders to batches, where several orders can be picked at a time. The combination is based, among other things, on the composition and volume of the orders so that it is adapted to the load carrier. Conversely, large orders can also be split into, for example, two picking orders. Warehouse workers are assigned a picking round that follows the most appropriate route in the warehouse and ensures that items are picked according to the order in which they are to be packed in the shipping packaging. This order depends on weight and other critical product characteristics.

What is a warehouse ABC analysis?

An ABC analysis aims to optimize the location of goods in the warehouse. It provides insight into which items are unsuitably placed and suggests the best location. The picking frequency generally determines the optimal position of goods. Goods with high picking frequency are placed at A locations, items with medium picking frequency are placed at B locations, and items with low picking frequency are placed at C locations. The locations are situated strategically in the warehouse in relation to picking, replenishment, and ergonomic height.

What is electronic kanban?

Electronic kanban is used to manage warehouse inventory. All items are registered with the minimum inventory that indicates when to order new items. LOGIA automatically notifies the ERP system when the inventory reaches its minimum, so you never run out of items.

What is Advance Shipping Notice?

Advance Shipping Notice is used in the warehouse’s goods receiving area. This feature allows suppliers to send detailed information about the shipment and its contents before the warehouse receives it. This can include information about, for example, the shipment size, order information, item numbers, quantity, product descriptions, shelf life, etc. This means that all individual registrations in the goods receiving area can be replaced with a single scan of the total received shipment, after which all information is then automatically transferred to LOGIA.

What is batch picking?

Batch picking means picking for several different orders simultaneously. The warehouse employee will typically have more boxes on the picking cart in which the orders are distributed. This results in fewer picking rounds, which means that the internal transport time is reduced and efficiency is increased. The inventory management system LOGIA puts together the most optimal batches and guides the employee through the picking round. LOGIA’s visual user interface displays the picking boxes into which the goods are to be distributed. Visualization makes it easy to understand and minimizes errors. Orders can also be picked directly in the shipping packaging. LOGIA indicates which packaging sizes the employee must use and where they must be placed on the picking trolley. LOGIA also has batch picking functionality, which is specially adapted for warehouses with many single-item orders such as webshops. With LOGIA’s Single Line function, all orders with only one item number are automatically collected in one batch pick. The goods are then transported to the packing area, where they are individually packed in shipping packaging.

What is cross docking?

Cross docking means that goods are moved directly from the goods receiving area to the transit area. When there are picking orders for incoming goods, which must be sent in the same quantities and packaging, for example, full pallets, LOGIA guides the goods directly to the warehouse’s transit area. The storage and picking process is bypassed, which saves time and increases efficiency. LOGIA has full control over FIFO and the durability of inventory. This ensures that goods are handled in a prioritized and appropriate order.

What is a vertical storage lift?

A vertical storage lift is an automatic storage solution that stores small items compactly in height. The solution is space-saving, as the height of the warehouse is utilized, and the items take up less space. The vertical storage lift contains shelves with compartments for the various items, which are driven at high speed to the opening of the automated lift when items are to be picked. The opening is located at an ergonomic working height, so the picking process is easy, fast, and convenient for the warehouse employees. The items-to-man principle means that internal transport is avoided, and process steps are minimized. Warehouse management software for automated storage lifts Vertical storage lifts are controlled by warehouse management software, which ensures that the right shelves are driven forward in the order in which the items are to be picked. The warehouse management system LOGIA has a management package that is specifically developed for warehouse storage lifts. The platform’s visual user interface guides the warehouse employee through the processes. LOGIA has full control over all items in the storage lifts and ensures that capacity and speed are utilized to the maximum.

What is a Pick-by-Voice system?

Hybrid Pick-by-Voice The WMS system LOGIA has a hybrid solution, where the well-known Pick-by-Voice system is combined with visual instruction on a tablet.
