Based on our real-life experience with customers, the average time for the check of a single storage location takes 5 seconds or less – including all efforts necessary to manage the drone (like battery changes).
The drone reliably recognizes barcodes of storage locations and stock, comparing the expected and as-is situation. For each location a picture is recorded, allowing the operator to perform a double-check on unclear situations from the comfort of his workstation.
Neither stock nor the operator needs to be moved from or to great heights – the drone does the job, reducing mistakes and injuries to none. During the entire process, the drone itself remains under the complete control and constant supervision of the pilot, so that the inventory can be executed in parallel with normal warehouse operations.
With our intuitive LEA ReplyTM Inventory web interface, the drone inventory progress and results can be easily monitored in real-time. The control center acts as a bridge between the WMS and the drone, by being in charge of giving missions and commands to the drone according to WMS processes status.
While the solution natively integrates with our LEA ReplyTM WMS, it also works well with any other WMS. The stock data can be integrated either via API interfaces or Excel file – allowing for immediate start-up of the solution without complex projects.
