Rotating Horizontal Carousels for Hospital Supply Chain Materials Management Storage
Rotating Horizontal Carousels helped this hospital supply chain materials management department improve their picking rates. The materials management department accomplished this with three horizontal carousels using pick to light technology and integrated order processing software. The hospital designed the rotating horizontal carousels so that all picking instruction orders are released to the inventory management software. The inventory management software commands the three carousels to rotate position to bring the required item to the order picker. As the order picker is retrieving the first pick, the software is positioning the other carousel for the next part to be retrieved. The order processing software organizes the all the picking for the worker staying one step ahead of the order picker. The rotating horizontal carousels with order processing software provided 87% increase in productivity. The rotating horizontal carousels not only improved the supply chain material management picking rates but also saved 42% of their storage floorspace.
