Storage location detection in the high-bay warehouse

With the storage location detection in the high-bay warehouse, an automatic detection of individual storage locations takes place when approaching the storage location with a forklift truck, for example. The objects to be placed into storage are linked to the storage bin. The data is managed with the help of the AutoID Middleware GRAIDWARE ®.

If a storage bin is specified by an external Warehouse Management System ( WMS ) , an automatic cross-check of the recognized storage bin is possible. This prevents incorrect storage. Alternatively, the storage bin can be transferred to an external system without a plausibility check. For both stock placement and stock removal, posting information can be created and transferred for third-party business systems ( for example, SAP WMS ). It is also possible to control transport orders for forklifts ( display on the terminal, etc. ).

Advantages of the automatic storage location detection

  • Enables the efficient use of dynamic warehousing
  • Increase of process safety
  • Avoidance of errors by scanning the wrong storage location
  • Increase in the degree of automation through automatic scanning of the load and the storage locations
  • Reduction of non-value adding process times
  • e.g. manual scanning or regular ascending / descending for the recording of cargo and storage locations
  • Avoidance of search times
  • automatic and permanent inventory in the depicted storage area
