Virtual Trade Show
The COVID-19 global pandemic has resulted in stay-at-home orders and increased challenges for supply chain professionals to gain insights, knowledge and visual experiences on new technologies. For that reason we have put together a virtual show for you to learn more about Lucas and determine if it’s the best fit for your business.
If you’d like a more personalized demo of our solutions please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be in touch with you shortly.
Dynamic Work Optimization
Lucas Dynamic Work Optimization (DWO) uses advanced mathematical models and artificial intelligence (AI) to reduce travel 30-70%.
Intelligent Batching With Lucas
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.
Optimize In-Store PickingStores will need to employ the same process and operations best practices that have been used for years in DCs. Those best practices can help retailers improve margins and profits on local fulfillment of ecommerce orders.
A New Era Of FulfillmentThe current ecommerce surge is accelerating the evolution of last mile fulfillment and modular micro-fulfillment technology will co-exist with AI-optimized manual processes in stores, DCs, and local fulfillment centers to help get orders out the door faster and with more accuracy.
Predictive Analytics With Machine LearningIn order to become proactive instead of reactive we need predictive and prescriptive analytics, through machine learning, artificial intelligence and data science.
Lucas InsightLucas Insight is a data reporting and analytics tool that combines current operational data with historical data to improve analysis, planning, and decision-making across a network of DCs.
Getting The Most Out Of Robots In Your DCUsing AMRs as take-away or transport systems will eliminate some worker travel, but warehouses will still need to optimize pick rates and minimize worker travel within picking areas.
Next Generation Analytics For Warehouse Operations
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.
Follow The Leader StagingFor warehouses picking smaller orders into totes or cartons, the order totes can be passed from zone to zone to complete picking (pick and pass). But for DCs picking larger orders by zone, it is typically more efficient to consolidate the items for the order after picking across all zones (pick and merge).
Order Picking Bucket Brigades
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.
Two Stage PickingTwo stage picking is a popular strategy for improving the picking efficiency for slow-moving items in a warehouse or distribution center. This short animation illustrates a simplified two-stage picking process in a DC using Lucas Move applications featuring Jennifer Voice.
Direct Relief and Lucas
Direct Relief is a nonprofit organization distributing medical supplies and medicine for emergency relief worldwide. Needless to say, efficient and accurate fulfillment is not just critical, it is lifesaving. In addition, Direct Relief is subject to US and international drug traceability requirements, making their task even more difficult.
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.
Work Execution Software Solutions
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.
