We often get asked questions regarding performance from our customers:
- How can we optimise the system’s performance?
- Where are the bottlenecks and excess capacities in our logistics system?
- What are the best alternatives for ironing out inefficient processes?
Automatic suggestion of the best possible alternative action
redPILOT Operational Excellence solution can show exactly where the bottlenecks and excess capacities are. Also, the system suggests alternative actions, so inefficiencies can be quickly ironed out. This, in turn, raises the performance of the overall system.
Intelligent algorithm to increase performance
The performance of the overall system is often throttled by one or more components. A bottleneck arises. To solve this problem, redPILOT has developed an intelligent algorithm that can detect such inefficiencies. The system not only prepares data, it can compute the best possible scenario, and then adjust it when changes take place – just like a navigation system. If the goal is planned, a suitable route will be found. If the traffic situation changes or, in our case, the logistic parameters, the intelligent tool provides those responsible with an alternative action to take. All the data is saved for future planning, which means that with every hour of operation, the system is learning. This know-how allows companies to adjust to changes early on. System performance increases.
Example of how to optimise the system performance
The process step “picking” is experiencing a bottleneck, slowing down order picking. So redPILOT looks for extra capacity in another process step. As soon it finds an operator in another warehouse area, redPILOT re-assigns this person to order picking. Thus, performance increases again.
Real use cases: redPILOT Happy Hour
We will address the question of how to deal with bottlenecks and overcapacities in our redPILOT Happy Hour on 10th February. Join the Webinar – register now.
