Syntelic now features a Live Execution "command and control" dashboard that warehouse supervisors can use to monitor work queues of selection and loading tasks in real time. Syntelic shows all tasks and their status by worker. As tasks move from pending, to assigned, to in process to completed, supervisors are able to track progress to ensure that work is proceeding at a pace to stay on plan.
While Syntelic automatically manages the work queues, Supervisors can manually intervene as needed to reassign tasks. "This system is ultimately a very flexible solution for many outbound warehouse operations," says Kip Blevins, Syntelic Vice President of Product Services. "If work is completed ahead of schedule in one area of the warehouse, workers can be reassigned to other areas. If an individual is not keeping up with the planned pace, a supervisor can go investigate the reason why."
Syntelic logs all start and stop times for every task, and compares the actual work against labor standards for each task. Sytelic sequences all work tasks including selection, loading, and general tasks such as breaks, meetings, battery changes, or clean up. Syntelic's Voice Manager for Vocollect handles all voice-directed tasks, receiving and sending updates to voice-enabled workers.
"Syntelic quantifies productivity by employee, function, warehouse area, DC or other metrics," says Blevins. "It supports continuous process improvement for increased profitability."
