FastPic® inventory management software from FastPic Systems helps industrial organizations integrate slotting techniques into their ordering and processing operations to improve space utilization, reduce parts handling, increase productivity, improve inventory and picking accuracy.
Slotting is the assignment of items to a particular location in a storage and retrieval system to maximize system capacity and improve overall system efficiency.
FastPic software uses advanced routines to collect and categorize inventory data allowing users to store and retrieve parts in appropriate distribution quantities or group them in families or by common usage for a specific application. Intelligent parts storage significantly reduces part handling time and, consequently, the costs associated with unnecessary handling.
Slotting increases operator productivity by reducing walk and search time and by making fast moving parts more accessible than slower movers. By slotting faster moving heavy or odd shaped parts in an ergonomic location within a storage and retrieval system, operator fatigue can be reduced, resulting in improved picking throughput and better accuracy.
Slotting also matches the part size to the location size and uses the right storage medium to hold the parts. This helps reduce bending and climbing by allowing the storage of faster moving items in more easily operator accessible locations.
FastPic software can integrate slotting procedures in a wide range of shelving, rack, pick-to-light, Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs), horizontal and vertical carousels.
FastPic Systems, a company of the Kardex AG of Zurich, Switzerland Group, is a leading developer of software for automated storage and retrieval system operation. The KRI Group is a manufacturer and integrator of a broad range of AS/RS technologies including vertical lift modules (VLMs), vertical and horizontal carousels.
