With a month until MODEX 2020 in Atlanta, GA, March 9 -12, attendees, members of the media, even fellow exhibitors want to know the breakthrough innovation solutions on display. The most important logistics solutions at the show is the Picavi Cockpit (at Booth 5485).

Picavi Cockpit

The Picavi Cockpit tool generates smart data for managing, maintaining, and customizing the screen of the Pick-by-Vision glasses: analytics, mobile device management (MDM) and configurator. Users benefit from enormous time and cost savings, greater flexibility and transparency as well as improved process quality.

Unlike anything else at MODEX, this innovation unleashes the full potential of order picking supported by assisted reality (AR). With the smart data function analytics: sensors on the glasses collect process parameters that can be evaluated using the Picavi Cockpit.

Wi-Fi coverage in the warehouse

An application example is Wi-Fi coverage in the warehouse. The interaction between Picavi Cockpit and data glasses means the signal can be measured at each individual storage location. "Dead" zones or areas with weak signal coverage, can lead to interruptions in the picking process, quickly become visible. Individual KPIs (such as picks per hour or per location) can be defined in analytics and monitored in dashboards.

Warehouse optimization potential

Another innovation breakthrough is the identification of warehouse optimization potential. Ensuring that items are stored in accordance with the ABC analysis are now axiomatic. Employees take the best routes when walking through the warehouse. Faulty scans at a storage location are eliminated. The Picavi Cockpit eliminates disruptive factors by detecting and eliminating them beforehand, increasing and automating process quality.

Automating functionality of smart data

Mobile device management and automation in the Picavi Cockpit ensures functionality of smart data glasses with minimal effort. A one-scan setup simplifies the addition of new glasses to the fleet. Simply scanning the barcode starts the configuration process. The glasses are ready for practical use in just a few steps. Wireless updates can be installed "over the air" using the breakthrough automation software. Users benefit from lower support costs without sacrificing security standards. Automating integrated screencast functions is suitable for training new employees to modern standards. The glasses' real-time display can be rapidly projected onto a monitor, clarifying work steps.

MODEX Booth 5485
