Robots can perform order picking, product putaway and in-warehouse transfers, among others. Jennifer™ coordinates these processes, communicating with robots and directing workers by voice. Workers confirm their tasks using voice, scan, RFID, or robot-mounted screens or lights. Lucas warehouse automation software can help you with these robot-assisted processes:
Robot-to-goods picking. AMRs travel among workers in pick zones, stopping at pick locations where workers (directed by voice) pick and put items in the appropriate tote on the AMR. Multiple robots meet each worker, who can remain in a smaller pick area.
Goods-to-person picking. AMRs carry products in totes or stowed on moveable shelves to pick-stations where workers pick, scan, and place items in totes for shipping.
Follow-the-robot picking or replenishment. AMRs function like powered, intelligent picking carts or pallet jacks. Jennifer™ AI creates batches, improving density and enabling each AMR to carry more orders.
Transit robots. Voice-directed workers use carts in designated picking aisles, off-loading completed totes or cartons at staging locations. Jennifer then notifies an available robot to fetch and transport the tote to its next destination.
Full pallet moves. Robots can perform full-pallet put-away or replenishment moves, replacing people in one of a DC’s most travel-intensive activities. When a worker calls a slot empty, Jennifer™ can notify an AMR that a let-down is needed.
