Our solutions are powered through unique AI-based optimization that is embodied in Jennifer™, the brains, orchestration engine and voice of the solution. Jennifer™ is delivered using smart software that adapts to your unique requirements and integrates seamlessly with other warehouse automation and IT systems.
Just as the brain stores information, controls muscle movements and assembles messages in a way that has meaning, Jennifer™ functions similarly in your warehouse.
Jennifer™ uses order, inventory and location data from other systems and applies real-time AI-based algorithms to optimize work assignments and tasks.
Jennifer™ provides AI-based intelligent batching and pick path optimization that reduces travel, increases pick density, and dramatically increases productivity. This same technology is used to optimize and orchestrate the movements of robots and people working side-by-side in a facility. Learn more →
Jennifer™ incorporates machine learning-based predictive analytics to optimize inventory, labor, and other aspects of warehouse operations.
Jennifer™ provides on-demand work creation that supports waveless work release for continuous order streaming and advanced task interleaving.
Jennifer™ organizes and orchestrates resources – people, robots, inventory – across IT and automation systems.
Jennifer™ intelligently allocates and manages work based on available resources or constraints. As new resources are added or removed, Jennifer™ adjusts and reallocates.
Jennifer™ reuses and extends current systems rather than upgrading or replacing.
Jennifer™ communicates with people, robots, automation and IT systems via standard users and system interfaces.
Jennifer™ communicates with workers through the Lucas mobile application running on the mobile device of your choice. The user interface combines voice direction (Jennifer voice), speech recognition, scanning, display and RFID.
Jennifer’s industry-best speech recognition platform uses dual speech engines and deep neural network technology providing optimal performance across languages, users and challenging DC environments. Learn more →
The Lucas management console provides managers with real-time visibility and control of operations. Beyond monitoring operations, managers can manage workers and work in process, and update rules, settings and configurations.
Jennifer™ communicates with robots, automation, WMS, TMS, and other systems via standard system interfaces that make integration fast and flexible. Learn more →
We helped Ace Endico, a leading regional food supplier, increase selector productivity by 28%.
“With Lucas, we have improved the productivity and quality of life for selectors.”
-Murray Hertzeberg, President
We helped Eby Brown, a leading convenience distributor, reduce shortages by 46%
“Far and away, it’s the best decision I ever made and the best product I ever brought in. This thing paid for itself in less than a year.”
-Chris Timmons, Executive VP of Operations
This paper is intended to help operations, engineering and IT executives understand what they need to know about this emerging technology, and how it may be used to improve DC planning and operations.
The Warehouse Optimization Suite is based on thousands of person-years of operations experience in hundreds of DCs. The suite features Jennifer™, the brain, voice, and orchestration engine that drives performance improvement gains. Jennifer™ incorporates a variety of AI, machine learning and other decision making technologies that are used to optimize and orchestrate DC operations.
