Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR TRANSPORTING INVENTORY ITEMS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE TRANSPORT D'ARTICLES D'INVENTAIRE
Abstract
(EN)
A method for transporting inventory items includes moving a mobile drive unit to a first point within a workspace. The first point is a location of an inventory holder. The method further includes docking the mobile drive unit with the inventory holder and moving the mobile drive unit and the inventory holder to a second point within the workspace. The second point is associated with conveyance equipment. The method further includes moving the inventory holder to a third point within the workspace using the conveyance equipment.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de transport d'articles d'inventaire comprenant le déplacement d'un module d'entraînement mobile jusqu'à un premier point à l'intérieur d'un espace de travail. Le premier point est un emplacement d'un support d'inventaire. Le procédé comprend par ailleurs l'ancrage du module d'entraînement mobile par rapport au support d'inventaire et le déplacement du module d'entraînement mobile et du support d'inventaire jusqu'à un deuxième point à l'intérieur de l'espace de travail. Le deuxième point est associé au matériel de transport. Le procédé comprend par ailleurs le déplacement du support d'inventaire jusqu'à un troisième point à l'intérieur de l'espace de travail en utilisant le matériel de transport.
