Title (EN) AUTONOMOUS CONDENSING OF PALLETS OF ITEMS IN A WAREHOUSE
(FR) RÉUNION AUTONOME D'ARTICLES SUR DES PALETTES D'ARTICLES DANS UN ENTREPÔT
Abstract:
(EN) Examples described may enable consolidating pallets of items in a warehouse. An example method includes receiving real-time item information including pallet locations in a warehouse sad inventory of items arranged on the pallets; based on the real-time item information, identifying a set of pallets of which at least one pallet includes less than a threshold quantity of a type of item; receiving real-time robotics information and determining, based on the real-time item and robotics information, an amount of time to condense the hems on the set of pallets into a single pallet and a quantity of pallets that will become empty as a result of condensing the items; and, based on the amount of time being less than a threshold time and the quantity of pallets exceeding a threshold quantity of pallets, causing robotic devices to condense the items into the single pallet.
(FR) L'invention permet, selon des exemples décrits, de consolider des palettes d'articles dans un entrepôt. Un procédé illustratif consiste à recevoir des informations d'articles en temps réel comprenant des emplacements de palettes dans un stock de vente en entrepôt d'articles disposés sur les palettes ; sur la base des informations d'articles en temps réel, à identifier un ensemble de palettes dont au moins une palette comprend moins d'une quantité seuil d'un type d'article ; à recevoir des informations de robotique en temps réel et à déterminer, sur la base des informations d'articles et de robotique en temps réel, une quantité de temps pour réunir les articles présents sur l'ensemble de palettes pour former une palette unique et une quantité de palettes qui deviendront vides suite à la réunion des articles ; et, sur la base du fait que la quantité de temps est inférieure à un temps seuil et du fait que la quantité de palettes dépasse une quantité seuil de palettes, à amener des dispositifs robotiques à réunir les articles pour former la palette unique.
