Lucas Dynamic Work Optimization (DWO) uses advanced mathematical models and artificial intelligence (AI) to reduce travel 30-70%.
When a user requests work in a picking area, DWO applies multiple algorithms to all available orders in the system to create optimized batches. The tool considers shipping time, proximity, and other variables.
These tools use a variety of web and cloud-based reporting and artificial intelligence tools to give executives and front-line managers data-driven insights they need to plan and manage all facets of operations, from inventory and workforce planning to predictive slotting and beyond.
Work execution software fills major gaps in current in-store fulfillment systems and processes. It automates manual processes with easy-to-use employee technology and improves inventory tracking on the back end. And the solutions are built on proven technology that many retailers are already using in their DCs.
Order picking bucket brigades are a way of organizing workers and orchestrating work in a warehouse pick module. The bucket brigade process balances workflow and distributes work evenly amongst the pickers, maximizing productivity and throughput. Top-performing bucket brigades typically use voice picking technology.
To meet these challenges, Direct Relief recently implemented the Lucas Work Execution Solutions, including Lucas Move voice-directed mobile applications on ruggedized Android smartphones. The results speak for themselves: improved efficiency, 100% accuracy and real-time traceability.
Lucas Work Execution Software Solutions optimize manual processes, make hands-on tasks easier and better for workers, and give supervisors new tools to view and manage associate performance, balance work-in-process, and adjust operations to changing needs. The solutions help DCs adapt to new demands without changing WMS or host systems, improve associate productivity, and increase order and inventory accuracy. The solutions combine advanced optimization technologies and industry-leading mobile, voice-directed applications to set new standards for DC performance and flexibility. Beyond voice picking, this is the future of work execution.
