The Future of Mobile Work
Lucas Mobile Work Execution solutions make hands-on warehouse processes easier and better for workers, and give supervisors new tools to view and manage associate performance, balance work-in-process, and adjust operations to changing needs. The solutions help DCs adapt to new demands without changing WMS or host systems, improve associate productivity, and increase order and inventory accuracy. Beyond voice picking, this is the future of mobile work.
Optimize Manual Work Alongside WMS and Automation
Most warehouses and distribution centers have existing systems, processes and infrastructure that have served them well in the past, but which cannot meet new demands for more flexible, faster, and efficient distribution. Warehouse management systems are designed for inventory optimization and planning, but they do not provide rich, configurable workflows that allow DCs to optimize the way work is performed by associates on the warehouse floor. Likewise, WCS and other automation systems are concerned only with planning and execution of automated material handling processes, rather than the manual processes that still prevail between islands of automation in the DC.
Lucas Mobile Work Execution solutions give DCs the flexibility to reengineer hands-on processes beyond the limits of their existing systems, while working with those systems. Adapt to change without risky, costly customization.
Key Capabilities To Improve DC Operations
Lucas Mobile Work Execution solutions include the Lucas Work Execution Server, Engage Management Dashboard, and Jennifer Mobile voice-directed warehouse applications. The solutions also include Lucas Enterprise Integration interfaces providing standard integration to warehouse planning and automation systems, including homegrown systems and WMS packages.
Mobile Work Solutions For Every Task
Voice Picking – Unlike voice-picking solutions, Lucas mobile work execution solutions incorporate barcode scanning and other input and display technologies, as well as advanced, adaptive workflows that optimize productivity and eliminate errors in the order selection processes.
Inbound Operations – We help transform RF or manual receiving, putaway and replenishment processes using barcode scanning, voice direction and speech recognition, improving the coordination, efficiency and accuracy of inbound activities.
Outbound Operations – In addition to efficient picking using configurable workflows, Lucas provides hands-free put-to-store, cross-dock and other adaptable outbound processes, in addition to post-pick QC/Audit, product sortation and truck loading.
Other Processes – Lucas mobile work solutions can streamline returns, cycle counting and other DC processes to ensure consistent, efficient performance, often by interleaving these tasks with other processes.
