Enterprise implementation of automatic warehouse
Warehouse automation benefits is obvious: automation can improve the accuracy and speed processing speed, lower cost, improve the reliability and power of the space and to better use. However, these advantages are not free. Automation need very expensive cost investment, only through the operation cost expenditures to withdraw investment. This is the comprehensive consideration, need to long-term. Britain's Peter has proposed to professor baker enterprise implementation of warehouse automation should pay attention to the problem.
A warehouse or automation,
Generally speaking, automatic storage system (AS/RS) per hour to transport in each roadway 40-50 tray, the chain sprocket and the height and width, pallet racking, physical properties of the factors, such AS low. If the elevator, need to change the time and single frequency conversion speed affects conversion operations.
Light shelves can be used to store by automatic storage bins, every hour, every roadway in within 80-100 containers access. Nonetheless, through some special equipment, further improve the speed. If the equipment and products, and physical properties allow increased the amount of real need, warehouse, each homework can carry two or more of the container.
FenJianJi speed per hour can finish two million times, some manufacturer even claimed to have a higher speed selection. But must note, processing speed and objects of different sizes, weights and object properties are closely related. When the RF (RF) terminal and install barcode browser connection, using the RF WMS terminal can increase the chosen speed. Despite the hard to say exactly to improve warehouse operation RF terminal of the amplitude, but this can easily be seen, picking member activities got more supervision, picking is more accurate, picking process can obtain more real-time information. RFID tags on track in the goods more advantages. Imagine a tray carrying 20 containers, each container inside the goods are different. Using the RFID, these goods will scan the information time, and bar code is needed to determine the goods by scanning, the properties, scanning speed is greatly improved.
In addition to the above mentioned above can feel good, some of the reasons and reduce with automation inductrial injury and improve the company image, damage and reduce dependence on operators, especially warehouse with special needs, the shortage of operators. But, at the same time, there are also some opposed views, including: the automation of change of cargo throughput and lack of flexibility, cargo project cycle, the lengthy project service quality drop among etc.
Can see, automation of logistics operation brings higher level, but it also brings more execution cost. Therefore, all conditions are adopted to make choices, so, automation, how to choose the feasibility of automatic warehouse? chain sprocket need very expensive cost investment, only through the operation cost expenditures to withdraw investment. This is the comprehensive consideration, need to long-term. Therefore, in choosing warehouse automation nobody should consider the following aspects.
Second, the choice of the warehouse automation projects need to consider four problems
1 to project, focus on actual need, but not for automation and automation. In consideration of the automation, consider and its corresponding manual operation. In fact, almost no one warehouse is real three-dimensional storehouse, any three-dimensional storehouse is combined with manual of automation. Sure, the establishment of project plan database. Normally the next 3-5 years, warehouse, storage capacity, the throughput of elements such as order goods categories into consideration.
2 technology assessment, determine whether appropriate automation. According to the warehouse storage, throughput and can determine whether need automation and automation to achieve.
