Initial situation and customer requirements
On the Brebieres site, the goods pass by container and arrive folded and grouped in boxes. The retail preparation area dedicated to medium rotation items had to be reorganized.
The objective was to optimize sampling operations by limiting travel and to facilitate replenishment of this area.
The BITO solution
It was decided that the stock of items with average rotation would be housed in dynamic packages, which presents an attractive investment / profitability ratio and wide possibilities for adaptation. In fact, the boxes of textile articles come in various sizes. The heights of the shelving shelves had to be able to be changed without difficulty or tools, not only in order to optimize the available space as much as possible but also to avoid wasting time rearranging the different levels.
The dynamic shelving of the SDS range makes it possible to optimize the available storage space as much as possible while guaranteeing very good working conditions for operators. The gravity function makes it possible to present the contents of the boxes on the front of the shelves, which naturally facilitates picking. The articles are always available without the preparers having to search for them at the back of the shelving. Their productivity is increased the risk of musculoskeletal disorders almost erased.
