With its Unified Control System (UCS), Körber introduces an unprecedented software solution for bundling and orchestrating multiple warehouse technologies.
Imagine you are sitting in a concert hall: on stage, a large orchestra with violins, violas, cellos, double bass, wind instruments, drums, timpani, and perhaps a piano or harp. Each musician knows their part and becomes part of a work of art that evening. To ensure that all these instruments play in harmony, there is a conductor. He or she determines the cues, sets the tempo, and ensures everyone plays in sync.
What does this have to do with material flow control? Well, if you apply the image to a vast warehouse where goods, warehouse workers, and autonomous mobile robots (AMR) share the "stage," the employees and AMR embody the musicians, and the instruments, in turn, act as representatives of the numerous different picking technologies (e.g., pick-by-light, put-by-light, voice). The assortment of goods represents the piece being played.
