The performance of a plant is not only determined by the speed of the technology. 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. But without the right technology, it is not possible either.
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 that have taken place entirely in our company and do without third-party products such as Microsoft objects or purchased libraries. The ANSI C++ developments directly address the operating system 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 professionally secured by internal mechanisms. For this reason, LUCA-Server can be classified as a high-performance product.
Die Geschwindigkeit ist eine Frage der Definition. Bei einigen Marktprodukten wird mit Antwortzeiten < 1 Sekunde geworben. Das reicht aber bei komplexen Anlagen nicht.
First plan properly, 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. However, 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 subject a few years ago and gathered the experience.
From this point of view, proper planning and only then the correct selection of the appropriate technology is the key to high-performance, stable and cost-optimized plants. Take advantage of our proven systems, such as Pick-to-Light, Pick-by-Frame®, Pick-by-Point®, Voice Picking etc.
