Title (EN) DISPENSING AND LIVE INVENTORY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND METHODS THEREOF
(FR) SYSTÈME DE GESTION D'INVENTAIRE EN DIRECT ET DE DISTRIBUTION ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Dispensing and live inventory management system and methods are disclosed. A shelf for items has bins each with an associated sensor. A processor receives a detection signal from the sensor which indicates placement or removal an item(s) from an associated bin. An entry device sends an entered request for placement or removal of items to the processor, and an indicator strip has lights which uniquely identify each one of the bins when lit. The processor has information relating to which bin each subset of lights is associated, and causes activation of a subset of lights associated with a bin of the item(s) in the request and records in memory a type of action, a timestamp and a quantity of the item(s) placed or removed from the bin having the subset of lights lit and indicated in the detection signal subsequently received from the sensor of the associated bin.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de gestion d'inventaire en direct et de distribution ainsi que des procédés associés. Une étagère pour articles comprend des compartiments équipés chacun d'un capteur associé. Un processeur reçoit un signal de détection du capteur qui indique le placement ou le retrait d'un ou de plusieurs articles d'un compartiment associé. Un dispositif d'entrée envoie une demande entrée pour le placement ou le retrait d'articles au processeur, et une bande indicatrice comprend des lumières qui identifient de manière unique chacun des compartiments lorsqu'ils sont éclairés. Le processeur comprend des informations concernant le compartiment auquel est associé chaque sous-ensemble de lumières et provoque l'activation d'un sous-ensemble de lumières associé à un compartiment de l'article ou des articles dans la demande, puis enregistre dans la mémoire un type d'action, un horodatage et une quantité de l'article ou des articles placés dans le compartiment ou retirés du compartiment ayant le sous-ensemble de lumières éclairé et indiqué dans le signal de détection reçu ultérieurement du capteur du compartiment associé.
