  18. 18. greyorange.comCopyright © 2016 GreyOrange Why Warehouse Automation? As a key component, high productivity Warehouses can optimize the entire supply chain Up to 25% of your overall logistics cost can be for Warehousing Accelerate order fulfillment time Reduce process complexity Improve productivity Low operational cost Real-time inventory audit Reduce error rate and returns Minimal downtime Improve agility and scalability Low pilferage
  19. 19. greyorange.comCopyright © 2016 GreyOrange High variation in throughput Visibility and traceability of inventory High dependency on skilled manpower Human-intensive audit process Space optimization (storage density) Case 2: Outbound – Complexities in Picking Warehouse Size 12,000 sq.ft. Outbound Throughput Over 4,000 units per day SKUs 10,000+
  20. 20. greyorange.comCopyright © 2016 GreyOrange Enable unit picking through Good-to-Person Solution Based on Pick List, the robot brings the rack with item to the picker Picker picks the item and keep it in pick-put station Order consolidation happens at Pick-Put station Case 2: Goods-To-Person Solution
  21. 21. greyorange.comCopyright © 2016 GreyOrange Case 1: Goods to Person Scenario Pre-Automation • Manual search for all materials in picklist for consolidation at packing station • Manual intervention leading to multiple errors • Order fulfilment within a limited timeframe is always a challenge • FMFO violation • Perpetual inventory count done every day Automation Solution Helping a retailer with a large number of SKU’s with unit level orders manage their current warehousing profile and design for the future. • Configurable pick-put stations and higher order picking rate in managing higher throughput • Increased Storage space utilization & Improve Manpower productivity • Reduce pilferage and stock losses with on-demand inventory audit through the put to light stations; no additional resources required • Gain complete visibility of inventory within the warehouse • Modular MSUs configuration to handle a variety of SKU types • Scalable and flexible solution to increase storage or throughput dynamically to handle projected growths • Visual-aided picking for a dumb proof process, resulting in reduction in picking errors
  22. 22. greyorange.comCopyright © 2016 GreyOrange Case 2: Sortation Scenario Pre-Automation Automation Solution •Sortation of the inbound and outbound system can be handled by primary and secondary sortation reducing manpower and time taken for the sortation process INBOUND •Since SKU profiles will change with inbounds received from different vendors, the system can be designed to be dynamic ensuring the same system can handle a large number of SKUs •The system can also capture the weight and volume of the units handled which can later be used to ensure order is correctly picked for dispatch to stores or end-customers •The system can handle the unit counting process which can be used to confirm the units received from the vendor so that the invoice can be confirmed accordingly OUTBOUND •SKUs are picked by batch, fed in the sorter and consolidated as per orders. The system captures the weight and volume of the units handled aids in manifest printing while dispacthing to the end customers. Helping a retailer with a large number of mixed SKU sortation Each case received from a vendor can contain multiple SKU’s : · All units in a case have to be counted individually and sorted as per SKU · Only after all the units have been sorted based on SKU can they be put away in the storage area · This process typically requires a large number of manpower to sort the inbound shipment as per SKUs · Due to the large numbers of units being handled daily this operation is prone to a errors · Time taken for segregation can be large stretching the time taken for warehouse operation and this gets amplified during the peaks
  23. 23. greyorange.comCopyright © 2016 GreyOrange Case 3: PPTL & GSTAT Scenario Pre-Automation • Human intervention was leading to growing errors • Issues with scalability as the business grows • Managing cut-off time with manual sortation is extremely challenging • Inaccurate Weighing and Dimensioning of irregular shaped shipments leading to revenue loss Automation Solution GreyOrange G-Stat and Sub-Sorting: Static Dimensioning, Weighing and Barcode Scanning System integrated with PPTLs assists in sortation of the shipments (Pick – Put – to – Light) Operator scans shipment and places on G-Stat | All item information is captured in the system | When items are scanned for sorting, the logic mapped PPTL glows making the process efficient and fast. GreyOrange Difference • Achieved Avg Throughput of 350 items per hour per station • Profiling and weighing of shipments with 99.9% accuracy • Profiling of both regular and Irregular shaped shipments • Accurate, error free Sortation • Easy integration with existing systems with simple dashboards
