Title (EN) STOCKING LEVEL INDICATION APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ D’INDICATION DE NIVEAU DE STOCKAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)In some embodiments, systems, apparatuses, and methods are described herein to provide a visual indication of a level or number of products stocked on a shelf of a shelving unit. The visual indication is provided by virtue of an accumulated weight of products on the shelf causing an indicator device to visually change according to the weight.
(FR)Dans certains modes de réalisation, des systèmes, des appareils et des procédés permettent de fournir une indication visuelle d’un niveau ou d’un nombre de produits stockés sur un rayon d’une unité de rayonnage. L’indication visuelle est fournie du fait que le poids accumulé de produits sur le rayon amène un dispositif indicateur à changer visuellement en fonction dudit poids.
