It is not only the speed of the technology that determines the performance of a plant. Planning is much more important in order to achieve the appropriate processes and support for the employees and to increase acceptance. The technology itself is not the art here. Without the right technology, however, it is also not possible.
The fast LUCA technique
Fast technology is a prerequisite for the creation of modern picking systems. The technology of the LUCA server is based on high-performance developments which have taken place completely in our company and do without third-party products such as Microsoft objects or purchased libraries. The ANSI C++ developments address the operating system directly at the lowest level and guarantee the highest stability.
Internally, several thousand telegrams per second can be exchanged and processed between the processes and interfaces on the LUCA-Server . The databases are used as data containers for the processes and play no role in the active data exchange. The running data is protected by professional internal mechanisms. For this reason, LUCA-Server can be classified as a high-performance product.
Speed is a matter of definition. Some market products advertise response times < 1 second. However, this is not sufficient for complex systems.
First plan correctly, then choose the technology
Even though today's technology offers many possibilities and interesting suggestions, it does not always make sense to use something that is used inappropriately for the employee and process.
An excellent example of the wrong planning and fashion appearance, is the poor use of Google Glass glasses in logistics. The technology itself is very good. But the use for the employees in logistics is absolutely wrong. The Google Glass glasses are being replaced very quickly with primitive tablets, which is not the goal. We already conducted research projects on the topic a few years ago and gathered the experience.
From this point of view, the correct planning and only then the correct selection of the appropriate technology is the key to high-performance, stable and cost-optimised systems. Take advantage of our proven systems, such as Pick-to-Light Pick-by-Frame®, Pick-by-Point®, Voice Picking etc.
