Coca Cola Amatil - Achieving record productivity with Dematic's FreePick Maximiser picking system
Dematic Pty Ltd
Supply Chain, Materials Handling, Warehouse Management
Coca-Cola Amatil is achieving record-breaking productivity rates of more than 1400 picks/hour at its new Eastern Creek DC thanks to a world-first order picking methodology developed by logistics systems supplier Dematic.
The new FreePick Maximiser process optimises case picking productivity by pairing suitable orders and fulfilling them through a high rate, integrated goods to the man pick module.
Dematic’s patented FreePick Maximiser software uses a number of complex algorithms to re-sequence orders to generate the highest quantity of negative pick opportunities and the optimum order fulfilment sequence for any batch of orders.
The FreePick Maximiser process is fulfilled through ergonomically designed goods to the man pick modules. Bringing stock to the picker and ‘putting’ the stock to orders, instead of transporting orders past stock eliminates the time wasted travelling between picks, further optimising productivity and throughput.
