Zebra’s Wearable Solution Provide Double-Digit Gains in Worker Productivity

Posted July 29, 2016

Zebra has introduced the world’s only dedicated family of wearable devices built on the Android operating system (OS) and backed by Zebra Mobility DNA, with hands-free and speech-directed picking that increases user mobility, comfort and accuracy. Compared with traditional speech-only wearable devices, the new multi-modal solution delivers 15 percent productivity improvements, with a 39 percent reduction in errors. Zebra’s Total Wearable Solutions is the latest milestone in Zebra’s commitment to delivering “visibility that’s visionary,” following the announcements of the TC8000 mobile computer in January and the 3600 series of ultra-rugged scanners in April.

Designed for inventory management, yard management and picking and put-away applications in warehouse, manufacturing and retail environments, Zebra’s Total Wearable Solutions include:

  • The easy-to-use  WT6000 Industrial Wearable Computer, featuring a touch display and secure tap-to-pair NFC technology to easily establish connectivity with Zebra’s RS6000 Wearable Ring Scanner and HS3100 Headset as well as Zebra Bluetooth-enabled printers for increased productivity. The WT6000 arm band features non-absorbent materials for breathability and improved hygiene when worn on the arm.
  • The RS6000 Wearable Ring Scanner, which provides improved picking speed and accuracy with programmable line-of-sight LED colors to direct user activity as well as improved range and motion tolerance, even when the worker or an asset is in motion.
  • The wireless HS3100 Headset, enabling speech-driven applications and voice communications along with superior noise cancellation technology.

“Zebra’s Warehouse Vision Report found that 72 percent of nearly 1,400 logistics professionals expect to use voice-directed picking solutions by 2020, up from just 30 percent in 2015. They recognize the need to help workers focus on the task at hand, rather than on handling a device. By liberating warehouse workers’ hands and eyes, Zebra’s Total Wearable Solutions will improve productivity and enhance their mobility, comfort and accuracy with all the necessary information in sight.” – Joe White, vice president, Enterprise Mobile Computing, Zebra Technologies

Datalogic Memor X3 Accelerates Workflows at Siemens

Posted February 4, 2016

With approximately 343,000 employees in over 200 countries, Siemens is one of the world’s largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies and a leading supplier of systems for power generation and transmission. In large-scale enterprises such as this, warehouse administration challenges employees with rigid demands. A great number of storage areas with several products coming in and going out at any given time require precise management. The more movement within the warehouse, the harder it is to keep track of operations and maintain accuracy.

The Challenge
Siemens had to confront this issue in its warehouse in Nuremberg, Germany. The company wanted more flexibility to make warehouse processes easier and reduce operating time, ultimately preventing unnecessary additional costs. Previously, employees manually performed several time-consuming steps to assign production orders to storage bins in the SAP program. Siemens wanted to simplify the process for employees and ensure secure data capture using bar codes.

The Solution
Using requirements of faster, easier processes and secure data capture, Michael Powell, the head of order processing at Siemens, contacted Systemhaus SA.SS. Datentechnik AG, a solutions specialist in printing and identification technology. SA.SS Datentechnik AG recommended the Memor X3 mobile computer from Datalogic as the hardware solution that would best fit the company’s needs. These mobile computers are equipped with a Windows operating system and a 2D imager that captures all barcode types, from linear to stacked to 2D codes, including GS1 DataBar. One of the Memor X3 mobile computer’s greatest advantages is its compact size. This fully equipped mobile computer with touchscreen, Wi-Fi connectivity, imager and large memory fits in any shirt or trouser pocket.

Case Study: Use Authentic Parts to Safeguard Customers

Posted September 8, 2015

CipherLab 9700 Series Handheld ComputersAre you aware that some aftermarket parts are installed at service centers? These inferior parts may put customers at risk and also jeopardize corporate reputation.

One of the most prestigious automotive companies for heavy-duty vehicles in China runs more than 900 service centers all over the nation. A large variety of replacing parts are required. The service centers fix customers’ vehicles at the front line, while the company manages the parts providers for these service centers. All contract suppliers have been proven that their components comply with standards and regulations to ensure customers’ safety. However, 90 % of service centers are franchised and the operators rely on paper-based process to collect data. It is very difficult for the company to have a snapshot on the inventory levels in a timely manner.

Without automated data management, identifying and collecting a large number of specific parts are very time consuming and ineffective. To begin with, the central office receives all kinds of material requests from respective service centers. When the package arrives at the receiving dock, an operator identifies the package and transfers it to the storage location. A warehouse operator takes delivery and confirms the right parts and quantities before they reach the storage shelves. It takes a long time to do and inevitable labor cost is increased. In addition, the retrieved parts cannot be traced and cross checked before the service is accomplished. During the process, missing data is likely to occur. At the end, discrepancy among receiving, sales and inventory is often seen. What is worse, the lag of data consolidation gives unethical franchised service centers some chances to take aftermarket parts for their own interest.
