Imagine this, you have 300 boxes arriving in the warehouse (from the factories), each box holds 50 units of health packets and you need to register the serial number of each item entering the warehouse in less than 30 minutes.
In other words, we need to know which are the exact 15,000 serialize products that has entered the warehouse in that duration. Yet, the production was only a semi-automated process, the WIP goods are moving as fast as the conveyor could move but tasks were predominantly executed by manual labour.
That was the task assigned to SmartB.
The first thing was to integrate a wireless Bluetooth scanner to the system. Looking at how a operator works, we estimated that he/she would be able to scan around 5 boxes in 3 seconds. Using that information, we identified the right amount of information captured during the scan and automated the rest of it via the backend system.
Yes, it was successful task.
