Management of the contents of the warehouse and an efficient order preparation system
Warehouse management system (WMS) with order preparation carts
For a pharmaceutical company a warehouse management system (WMS) capable of maintaining the full traceability of the products contained within it was installed. Thanks to this system, the products contained in it, their quantity and their location can be known precisely. With this information and the use of an order preparation card, a system that contributes to the optimal creation of orders, free of errors, has been installed. This order preparation cart is equipped with a barcode reading system to perform confirmation operations of the orders that are indicated on the screen of the cart itself. Another element the cart includes is a mobile weighing system capable of detecting errors in the order preparation process via the calculation of the difference in weights. With the installation of this system, management of the finished product has been improved, the number of orders prepared has increased and the number of errors made has decreased.
