This is the basis of the LUCA systems with a mature basic concept and professional software development. Our software is installed on a customer server platform and supported via VPN.


The Professional IT-Concept for LUCA-Solutions

Stable, Flexible, Innovative and Cost-Effective


Why?

For many years, LUCA has used many different technologies in the construction of its order picking systems. In order to standardise the development and make it future-proof, a common platform for all these technologies had to be created. The modular structure of the LUCA server with a very fast inter-process communication and various monitoring and protocol mechanisms guarantee the capabilities.

The goal

The multitude of diverse technologies that LUCA supports requires a stable basic concept. In order to fulfil this, we set ourselves several goals for the LUCA-Server . The most important one was the standardization of the interface between the various technologies (e.g. Pick-to-Light, Voice Picking, Pick-by-Frame®, Pick-by-Point®, etc). The interfaces to the individual plant components and systems are connected to the LUCA-Server via special coupling modules. From there, the data flow is controlled and can be monitored via online monitoring. Our systems are used in a productive environment. For this reason, very high availability must be guaranteed. The core and individual communication channels and processes can be centrally monitored via the control station functions. The modular design guarantees flexibility in case of extensions. To guarantee reliable operation, various mechanisms for hotline support are integrated.
