How can it help your business?

In a fast-moving marketplace, maintaining the highest level of efficiency and the lowest cost of operations is an ongoing challenge. Mounting service levels mean nonstop changes in staffing levels, inventory positioning, equipment and travel distances.  Luminate Warehouse Tasking pulls information from many sources and uses that intelligence to prioritize/re-prioritize tasks in your warehouse.

Luminate Warehouse Tasking has a broader understanding of the relationships between work tasks that need to be performed in order to get product out the door. It’s based on a more holistic understanding of task processing requirements and process interdependence. Here’s an example of how the task orchestration works in 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
