Every day, warehouse managers have to make instant decisions based on unforeseen issues that threaten to halt operations. The best managers are those who have mastered the rules of the game.
So why is it that their management software bails out on them after creating an initial operations plan each day? It’s like forcing a world-class chess player to decide on all of his moves, in sequence, before the game has begun! In the world of chess, he would lose every time— and the world of warehouse management is even more complicated…
The day that IBM’s Watson computer won the popular TV game show Jeopardy!, the possibility of creating a fundamentally new, ultra-aware decision support engine for warehouse operations came one step closer to reality. Now it’s available.
CloudLogic™ is a game-theory-based system that plans and communicates each move of people and product in your warehouse. One move at a time. Real-time. Up to a thousand times a second.
For picking, this means that each pick is assigned real-time by evaluating the location of the picker, the congestion downstream of the pick operation, the proximity of other pickers to the target pick, and even the required truck loading time cutoff. Instead of pick path being king, the real issues encountered in a real warehouse can alter the pick instructions the second that conditions change. Priorities can shift, trucks can call in late, orders can be made “hot”, all at any time. …and the warehouse manager will have to do—nothing at all—in order to re-plan the day’s work…
…and now, CloudLogic™ can manage all warehouse operations: Receiving, Putaway, Cycle Counting, Cubing, Picking, Pallet Building, and Loading…
Exceptions occur. CloudLogic™ changes each operator’s task. As needed. Instantly. And each day, CloudLogic™ produces a report that shows, numerically, how well it played the Warehouse Operations game. …you’ll review the report, and find yourself using the same word that many of the nation’s top 10 C-Store distributors have used:
