Order fulfillment with inventory carousels

Safco Dental Supplies is adding another inventory carousel to their distribution center.

Safco provides dental supplies to dental practices.  They sell everything a dentist uses in daily practice.  From aprons and bibs to Zandlynx, they stock it all!  And the most active items are stocked and picked from flow racks and automated carousels.

Every 15 minutes new orders are grouped and sent to a carousel server.  Pickers take products from bins that have moved into pick position and display a pick quantity.  Picked products are put into pick bins by pick quantity.   Conveyors move pick bins from carousels to the floor for bulk item picking.  Finally, pick bins go to checkers for verification and packing.
