Delfi Technologies' own warehouse system has made the flow of goods at the company much more transparent. The large screen display at the warehouse provides an overview of daily goods flow. Warehouse staff can follow the order process from incoming goods until goods dispatch. The overview makes daily planning much more efficient and the number of errors has fallen dramatically.
In mid-2014, Jackie Cortez, leader of Delfi Technologies' purchases and logistics department, reported on the new warehouse system, named "Delfi Mobile Force", in Delfi Posten. Reducing the number of errors and eliminating printed picking notes and manual work processes were then the most revolutionary aspects of the new system. The system's large screen display has since attracted overwhelmingly positive attention.
The screen is subdivided into five columns that classify the flow of goods. The columns show incoming goods, orders waiting, order picking, order dispatch and order invoicing. Warehouse staff use the screen to follow the daily flow of goods, plan their work and also as a check list.
"The screen clearly shows us how far we have progressed with the day's work. When we scan a product using the hand-held terminal, the goods/order number moves automatically from one process to the next, e.g. from picking to dispatch. The warehouse system is fully integrated with C5, our financial management system, so the details I read on the screen are correct and I can plan in accordance with them," explains Jesper Slott Andreasen, warehouseman at Delfi Technologies' main warehouse in Køge (Denmark).
