In a fast-moving marketplace, maintaining the highest level of efficiency and the lowest cost of operations is an ongoing challenge.

Blue Yonder Luminate Warehouse Tasking pulls information from many sources and uses that intelligence to prioritize/re-prioritize tasks in your warehouse.

Here’s an example of how the task orchestration works in Luminate Warehouse Tasking when prioritizing based on load dispatch time:

  1. 1. Evaluates load dispatch times
  2. 2. Looks at the tasks and the time required to complete those tasks
  3. 3. Determines the total work and time required to meet the cut-off
  4. 4. Evaluates adjacent loads to be dispatched
  5. 5. Evaluates the tasks required to meet that cut-off time and prioritizes order processing
