PixelPlex helped its client conduct comprehensive research into automating their warehouse and improving the speed and efficiency of product delivery by implementing intelligent storage solutions, robotic lifts, and automated conveyor systems.
Implement a fully-automated smart warehouse system to speed up product delivery
Develop a visualization prototype using digital twin technology to demonstrate system functionality
Prepare comprehensive technical documentation for the future system
Ensure efficient order collection with no congestion
Provide a solution for how equipment can deliver items to the cashier intact and undamaged
With the rise of online grocery delivery, our client recognized the need to optimize their order fulfillment process and last-mile delivery solutions.This decision was motivated by their outdated and inefficient method of order collection, which relied on staff members who physically searched the supermarket for specific items. This led to unnecessary delays because sometimes products were unavailable and staff needed to contact the customer and change the order.To address these issues and ensure a seamless and efficient delivery experience for their customers, our client needed to re-imagine and improve their processes.
We proposed the idea of an innovative warehouse equipped with intelligent storage solutions, robotic lifts, and automated conveyor belts to streamline the order fulfillment and delivery process, reduce human intervention, and boost overall efficiency.The system alerts administrators when goods are about to run out, minimizing the risk of items becoming unavailable.
Got an idea for your project?
Our team proposed the following flow to automate the order fulfillment process:
The system receives an order through API.
Intelligent storage solutions receive a signal and prepare items for withdrawal.
Robotic lifts pick up items and place them in boxes on conveyor belts.
The boxed orders are transported to the checkout.
The cashier packs the items into shopping bags and updates the status for pickup.
The courier receives the order for delivery.
We ensured smooth system functioning, preventing congestion on the conveyor belts by thoroughly planning the logistical route of orders within the warehouse.
PixelPlex developers made detailed calculations of how products would move along the system and how manual labor would be allocated. They then created a precise and detailed visualization of the process.
The model demonstrated a 10-minute average order collection time, with the system operating non-stop.
We provided our client with expert advice on the software and integrations needed for seamless warehouse operations and delivery systems.
We recommended developing custom software for hardware management, including an admin panel. Administrators would be able to monitor the state of the equipment and receive timely notifications for restocking.The application would replace the software previously used by manual order pickers, as the new system eliminates this role.
