CVS: INSTALLATION OF LABEL SYSTEM AND WAVE PLANNING SOFTWARE [view .PDF]
PeakLogix created a Label Software system to translate the raw data from CVS’ old system into bar coded labels. The new software included the ability to create WAVE plans for case picking, which allow operators to reorder case labels into more efficient picking orders.
With the addition of a new sorter, CVS needed a way to process cases of material as they passed through their bulk facility. Their case labeling system could not print bar codes on the case labels, crucial to the success of the newly installed sorter.
The bar code label system allows CVS to maximize the use of its new sorter. The WAVE plans give operations staff the ability to evaluate and make adjustments to the picking order to process orders more quickly.
- Windows based custom software solution that:
o Receives CVS pick data on a daily basis.
o Loads data and allows operator to create waves.
o Prints new Pick labels.
o Allows for reprints of any single label or group of labels.
o Communicates with sorter PLC, transferring wave/lane information.
- 3 High-speed barcode printers.
- Omni Scanner reads barcode on new labels and transfers data to sorter.
