Issue background

  • Picking was performed according to lists, which took a lot of time.
  • Stocking parts also took a lot of time.
  • When sending boxes with picked parts to subsequent sites, it was troublesome to fill out recipient information by hand and attach the labels to containers.
  • The company subcontracted the work of retrieving inventory from warehouses, so turnover was extremely high and training was difficult.
