RightChain Warehousing The World's Most Advanced Warehouse Optimization & Planning Platform Warehouse Optimization as a Service 16% to 34% lower warehousing cost | 14% to 37% higher productivity | 11% to 28% higher storage density More than 250 DCs and 50 million square feet optimized.
WAREHOUSE OPTIMIZATION APPLICATIONS Warehouse Optimization System and Digital Twin
PALLET STORAGE OPTIMIZATION Minimizes the total cost of pallet storage and picking including labor, occupancy, vehicle operating cost, and the annualized cost of rack and vehicle investment, The AI assigns each SKU to its minimum cost combination of storage mode, storage configuration, and vehicle type. The AI considers all pallet storage modes including floor storage, stacking frames, single deep rack, double deep rack, push back rack, pallet flow rack, and mobile pallet rack. The AI considers all pallet handling types including walkie stackers, sit down counterbalance lift trucks, stand up counterbalance lift trucks, straddle trucks, straddle reach trucks, turret trucks, and ASRS machines. Any of the vehicles can be modeled as conventional or autonomous.
CASE PICKING OPTIMIZATION Minimizes the total cost of case picking including labor, occupancy, vehicle operating cost, and the annualized cost of rack and vehicle investment, The AI assigns each SKU to its minimum cost combination of storage mode, storage configuration, and vehicle type. The AI considers all case storage modes including floor storage, stacking frames, single deep rack, double deep rack, push back rack, flow rack, and mobile pallet rack. The AI considers all pallet handling types including walkie stackers, sit down counterbalance lift trucks, stand up counterbalance lift trucks, straddle trucks, straddle reach trucks, turret trucks, and ASRS machines. Any of the vehicles can be modeled as conventional or autonomous. The AI considers all combinations of case picking systems including pick to pallet jack, pick to lift truck, pick to order picker, pick to belt, robotic order picking, and layer picking via lift truck attachment and gantry robot.
EACH PICKING OPTIMIZATION Minimizes the total cost of each picking including picking and restocking labor, occupancy, vehicle operating cost, and the annualized cost of rack and vehicle investment, The AI assigns each SKU to its minimum cost combination of storage mode, storage configuration, and picking mechanism. The AI considers all each picking modes including bin shelving, storage drawers, carton flow rack, horizontal carousels, vertical carousels, traditional miniload ASRS, bot-based ASRS, and automated guided shelving systems. Optimizes the allocation of cube and and lanes for each SKU as well as the optimal slot location.
SLOTTING OPTIMIZATION Minimizes the sum of order picking and restocking costs, RightChain™ Slotting assigns each SKU to its optimal slot location and allocation of space and lanes incorporating SKU popularity, volumetrics, cube, pick paths, and relation with other SKUs for pallets, cases, and eaches. Originally developed in the early 1990s, RightChain’s proprietary and award-winning slotting algorithms are the industry’s gold standard.
WAREHOUSE LAYOUT OPTIMIZATION RightChain™ Layouts minimizes total material handling costs throughout the warehouse by exchanging the location activities in such a way as to maximize activity adjacency. In addition, RightChain.ai optimizes the overall building configuration, simulating various building widths, depths, and lengths.
