Modular to Fit Operations Today and in the Future

The Lucas optimization modules include configurable workflows and reporting components for specific warehouse operations and management functions: picking, receiving, putaway, sortation, loading, audit, replenishment, cycle count, slotting, labor planning, etc. The modules are designed to accommodate each DCs unique business rules, workflows and other requirements.
Optimization Modules

Configurable Workflows

Picking

Picking

Increase productivity, throughput and accuracy in case, piece or pallet picking with voice-direction and AI-based process optimization.

Receiving

Receiving & Returns

Improve receiving and returns processes by using voice, scanning and visual displays for receiving mixed or full pallets, verifying quantities, identifying damage, and sorting and staging items for put-away.

Putaway

Putaway

Use voice and scanning technologies in putaway processes for full pallets, mixed pallets (multiple SKUs putaway in separate storage locations), or using carts with mixed SKUs.

Sortation

Sortation & Packing

Ease post-pick steps by using put walls (or other consolidation methods) to assemble multi-line orders that have been picked in multiple zones or batches.

Loading

Truck Loading & Shipping

Optimize loading pallets for route-stop delivery. In addition, include system- or user directed loading, and include safety and other inspection steps.

Audit

Reduce audit time with parameter-based auditing based on experience, order, products and customers.

Replenishment

Replenishment

Move full or mixed pallets from reserve or bulk storage to forward picking locations. In some instances, replenishment can be included in picking workflows or interleaved with other tasks.

Cycle Count

Maximize accuracy by incorporating cycle count in picking or other workflows. Lucas supports opportunistic cycle counts (directing a picker to count a location after they pick from it).

Slotting

Dynamically optimize your inventory with current and forecasting data that enables managers to make efficient slotting adjustments in advance of changing conditions.

Labor-Planning

Labor Planning

Increase throughput and manage peaks with management dashboards that provide managers real-time visibility and control of operations.
