How the Inventory Control Technology Works
The Inventory Control Technology which interfaces with Vertical Lift Modules are able to process kits and batch orders to automate parts picking and increase accuracy. The Inventory Control Technology batches kits and orders together, and then sends the picking instructions to the Vertical Lift Modules. The technology directs the Vertical Lift Module to automatically retrieve and deliver the appropriate parts storage trays to the ergonomic work counter for the operator to pick. The work counter has LED lights that point to the exact bin location and displays the part number and quantity of parts for the operator to pull. As soon as the operator completes the first pick, the Inventory Control Technology automatically tells the Vertical Lift Module to deliver the next storage tray for the next pick transaction. Typically, two Vertical Lift Modules are designated to one picking operator so while one machine is moving to deliver the next part tray, the operator is picking from the other machine’s storage tray.
