Hence, inconso presents a new release of inconsoSLM (Slotting Management System) designed for distributing stocks to available areas and locations in the warehouse. Improved algorithms, extended parameters and increased tailoring for displaying different warehouse scenarios enable to further optimize the use of resources in the warehouse.
Unlike common slotting management systems, the extended solution from inconso includes a heuristic approximation method (simulated annealing) that takes into account all possible combinatorics of products and locations – with minimal calculation time and a large number of considered parameters. These include not only the product properties and their storage conditions, but also picking routes and sequences. Dynamic slotting with inconsoSLM enables the user to flexibly add new products to stock and to maintain a sustainable high level of planned warehouse organization, especially through its means of parameterization.
In particular,inconsoSLM addresses the high logistic requirements of seasonal retail businesses. The solution can be used as an add-on or integrative component with inconsoWMS or as a stand-alone solution in any warehouse management and ERP system.
