Our order fulfillment solutions are an efficient combination of proven robotics technology and intelligent software. The key elements of the order picking systems are wide-area gantry robots which can manage a range of operations including buffer storage of goods arriving from production or goods-in, sorting and sequencing of products requiring processing, order picking, delivery scheduling, load planning, and order release.
From simple systems to complex solutions
With a modular, overhead gantry design, our robotic solutions can cover large working areas. Any number of robots – each equipped with grippers designed specifically for handling the particular unit load – can be employed, according to the throughput demands of the application. Our robotic installations range from simple systems to complex solutions.
With core software modules used in every project, stability and reliability are guaranteed. However, we know that each plant is unique, so we use our considerable system integration experience across several industries to deliver tailored solutions to meet your needs.
Control for order fulfillment
Our Warehouse Control System (WCS) supervises the required warehouse functions, including control of the order picking and material flow. The WCS system – which features an intuitive User Interface – always operates under the customer’s host system, from which it receives all relevant data such as products, order lines, volumes, priorities and dispatch deadlines. The WCS can also control consolidation and dispatch planning so that orders are sent to the shipping dock in reverse drop sequence, ready for loading into delivery vehicles.
Traceability with warehouse control system
Every industrial beverage has to be traceable from the store to the brewery and from there to the industrial farmer of each and every raw material that is used in making our beer or soft drinks. The inventory in warehouse control has to be 100 per cent accurate and absolutely reliable with no exceptions. With our current WCS, this is a reality.Marjatta Rissanen, Customer Service and Administration Director at Olvi Brewery.
