In view of the wide range of order profiles and the significant disparities in the dimensions and rotation categories of the of the SKUs in inventory, the ideal split-case preparation solution must allow for a combination of different manual, automated or completely robotic processes.
Person-to-goods processes are particularly effective and suitable for high or very low turnover reference items as well as bulky products, and are quick to implement.
Fully manual pick-and-pack process involving trolleys, allowing for the preparation of 1 to n orders at the same time.
Pick-then-pack process involving collecting products from stock corresponding to n orders, sorting them one by one, as a single or repeated process, in units in put-to-light mode with high-speed sorters.
Automated system involving shuttles that restock dynamic storage units in preparation stations.
Numerous possibilities with radio-frequency terminals, voice solutions, preparation units, heads-up displays, LED displays and banners used in pick-to-light and put-to-light mode.

Prodex, a SAVOYE subsidiary, is a French dynamic storage designer and manufacturer for all types of logistical support.
Prodex equips small or medium warehouses with handling solutions for light and heavy loads, combining dynamic storage units and handling circuits.
For more than 20 years, SAVOYE has been designing order or picking tools that are recognised by the market and specific to different processes:
Assisting in preparing orders or kits
Configuring item data
Dynamic replenishment shuttle
The automated replenishment system for picking positions is based on the association of PRODEX dynamic storage units and X-PTS (to replace when name determined) technology. A lift is used to transfer loads to the correct storage level, where shuttles then move them to the correct position. The gravity operating principle used with dynamic storage units ensures that the item is always available.
Reduction in operating costs linked to replenishment operations
Automation of repetitive replenishment operations in stock picking of high turnover items
