Lucas Systems Inc., which develops voice-directed warehouse applications, has added a real-time productivity feedback tool known as Speedometer. This new tool is part of the Jennifer VoicePlus system designed for voice picking and other voice-directed warehouse operations.
Speedometer gives voice picking users and DC managers real-time productivity updates and alerts. Warehouses using Speedometer have seen additional productivity gains of up to ten percent beyond the gains already achieved from moving to voice-directed operations, says Lucas Systems.
Speedometer allows managers to set individual alert levels to provide real-time information about their performance against pre-defined productivity standards. Those standards may be based on historical standards or engineered standards provided by a labor management system (LMS).Speedometer alerts, which may be delivered by email or text message, let supervisors react to production issues faster than possible with traditional reporting tools.
Speedometer supplements the productivity and labor reporting tools that are a standard part of Lucas Systems' Engage Management Service Console, a Web-based reporting, management and configuration application included as a key component of the Jennifer VoicePlus solution. Engage and Speedometer can be used to provide basic labor management capabilities for organizations that don't have an existing labor management system, or it can supplement and integrate with LMS software from other providers.
