Zero defect warehouse: The key to success
The importance of article availability is nowadays beyond dispute. Service is therefore the focus of our attention: Punctuality, accuracy, traceability and costs are now the decisive factors for customer satisfaction and therefore, for success. Fulfilling these demands requires flexible, economical and error-free intralogistics. All the processes along the supply chain must be transparently fashioned and optimized. Starting with these current trends and demands, KNAPP developed its zero defect warehouse.
The zero defect warehouse links quality, process security and efficiency along the entire supply chain. How does it work? Continuous checks within the individual processes mean that these demands are no longer in conflict with each other.
Vision technology is used to make the zero defect philosophy a concrete reality. There’s a customized Vision solution for all the main processes in a warehouse, from goods-in to goods-out. The zero defect warehouse achieves Sigma level 6, which is considered error-free. Vision technology fulfils the legal requirements, for example, for lot and serial number tracking using 1D and 2D codes.
