Warehouse Optimization Tools

The Lucas Warehouse Optimization Suite helps transform DC operations and continuously adapt to changing markets and customer demands, improving throughput, productivity, and service by orchestrating and optimizing resources – people, robots, inventory – across IT and automation systems.

Flexible and Future Proof for IT and Operations​

Through voice, AI-based optimization, adaptive workflows, and a micro-services architecture, Lucas warehouse optimization software empowers companies to meet new demands by setting new standards for employee productivity and accuracy, improving management effectiveness, and evolving with your business.

+The easy-to-use Lucas mobile application runs on the mobile device of your choice. The user interface combines voice direction (Jennifer™ voice), speech recognition, scanning, display and RFID to help automate any manual, hands-on process in the warehouse. +Jennifer™ utilizes AI and advanced algorithms to enable managers to make efficient slotting moves in advance of changing conditions. +Reduce training and onboarding with easy to use voice-directed mobile applications incorporating industry leading dual recognition speech technology. +The Lucas management console provides managers real-time visibility and control of operations to help increase throughput and manage peaks. Beyond monitoring operations, managers can manage workers and work in process, and update rules, settings and configurations. +The Lucas system leverages rich and granular data and Jennifer™ applies advanced machine learning algorithms to provide managers with advanced workforce planning and performance management capabilities. +Jennifer™ provides AI-based intelligent batching and pick path optimization that reduces travel, increases pick density, and dramatically increases productivity. In addition, Jennifer™ enables advanced task interleaving and continuous order streaming. +Deliver the right products to your customers with efficient pick and put validations, optimized QC/audit criteria and Jennifer’s on demand assistance. +Lucas enables you to seamlessly integrate next-generation technology with enterprise software, robotics and warehouse automation, reducing the costs and risks of change. +Voice-directed applications allow operators to be eyes and hands free, making them more aware of surroundings. Operations that add voice solutions often see a decrease in accidents. +While Jennifer™ orchestrates and optimizes within picking zones, a DC can add robots for conveyance between pick zones or other staging locations. This can further reduce worker travel to and from fixed drop off or induction points. Likewise, Jennifer™ can be used to optimize the travel of robots for full pallet moves, both in inbound and outbound operations.

We helped Baptist Health, a leading healthcare provider, double picking productivity.

“The previous average picking rate in the LUM area was 50-56 lines per hour (LPH). Today it is 100-110. That is a 100% improvement, and in bulk picking, the number is about 20 percent.”

Dale Adamson, AVP of Logistics and Distribution

We helped Apex Tool Group, a leading manufacturer of hand and power tools, operate with 10% fewer man hours.

“You rarely implement a new system and have users tell you ‘It’s made my life so much easier!’ Making the processes better for associates makes them more productive. And that’s better for the business.”
