Put-away

Challenges:
Operators decide a put-away place based on their past experience. When a type of products need to change their usual slots, operators cannot timely find another suitable put-away location, and later cannot pick the right stock from the right slot. Inaccurate put-away data prevents operators from seeing where exactly a product is stored and how much storage space is left. 

Solution:
By reading products' 1D/2D barcodes or UHF/HF/LF RFID tags, Chainway handheld computer intelligently assigns all batches of products to their suitable storage slots, provides logistics workers with the shortest put-away path, and transfers this put-away information to the backend server. Available space is clear for warehouse managers to optimize inventory levels.


Results:
1. Chainway handheld computer recommends to operators the slot from last time. Experienced logistics operators will perform tasks faster, and new operators will run smoother.

2. When put-away and replenishment is finished, the latest inventory data is transferred to the company’s back-end server. Warehouse workers and managers have access to real-time inventory level anytime. 

3. Out-of-stocks will never happen for logistics administrators can arrange rapid replacement of goods into the appropriate location based on accurate inventory data. Supply chain run smoothly.

4. Enhanced visibility of put-away data optimizes warehouse space utilization.
