Traditional Wave Picking

Traditional Wave Picking

  • Creates inefficiencies by not generating a consistent workload for operators and equipment
  • Need to finish processing the previous waves before releasing subsequent waves
  • Causes a "stop-and-go" pattern for the operation
  • Complex exception handling

SCHAEFER Waveless Picking Funnel

How Does SSI SCHAEFER Waveless Order Optimization Work?

  • Orders are continuously dropped from the ERP/Host system into WAMAS WMS
  • WAMAS maintains all orders in an order pool
  • The order pool is constantly re-evaluated and the next-best order is released based on several different criteria including, but not limited to:
    • Prioritization rules
    • Inventory availability
    • Physical capacity of workstations, conveyors, sorters, shuttles, and cranes
    • Order optimization increases picking efficiency
