Case 1 – Increase Speed, Save Labour

Before

  • It was necessary to build a smart framework for shipping tasks that could be operated by anyone.
  • It was also necessary to introduce a system that would allow a reduction in the number of workers handling shipping tasks.

After

  • Conducting a logistical analysis of product hit rates, creating distinct storage areas for A products, B products, and C products, and using conveyor belts for the work reduced walking routes and increased task efficiency by 17% compared to the existing system.
  • The simple framework in which tasks are executed in accordance with instructions on display devices, accomplished a worker-friendly system that can be operated by anyone.
  • The number of workers was successfully reduced (from 3 to 2.5).

Solution

Pick-to-light system combines different conveyors to successfully reduce walking routes

  • In this system the flow racks for frequently shipped products (A products) are positioned around conveyor belts.
  • While less often shipped products (B and C products) use medium-duty racks and conveyor belts.
  • Pick to Light system secures work traffic lines, reduces the burden of on-site work and improves work quality.

Case 2 – Save Labour Using PPS

Before

  • Decreased work efficiency
  • Picking errors
  • Inconsistent work efficiency dependent on level of operator experience

After

Our system made it possible for anyone to work efficiently

  • Storage locations of the drugs are easy to determine, even for less experienced pharmacists
  • Our system reduced picking errors for the pharmacists

Solution

Pick-to-light system combines different conveyors to successfully reduce walking routes
Projection Picking System(PPS)

  • We created a Pick to Light System that did not require modification of the pharmacy shelves.
  • Image projection technology is more nimble than light modules.
