At an average workstation in a warehouse, the weight of goods moved around by each individual per shift can amount to more than a tonne. With hundreds of movements and access operations per hour, it comes down to efficiency, accuracy and speed. ergonomics@work!® workstations from SSI SCHAEFER achieve cost benefits of € 50 to 200 per day and thus an excellent ROI.
A workstation created specifically for goods-in according to the ergonomics@work!® concept achieves a proven 15% and greater increase in productivity with the associated cost savings. In addition, it contributes greatly to relieving the physical workload, which was an extremely important consideration in the goods-in area.
In order picking using the goods to man principle in particular, the ergonomics of the workstation is a critical factor determining performance levels. Only SSI SCHAEFER offers workstations where the goods are fed in at an angle so that they are easy to handle, and where the user is not only guided by pointers, displays and light grids with perfect ergonomics, but is also protected against incorrect use. For this reason, SSI SCHAEFER achieves a performance of 700 to 1000 picks/hour with the ergonomics@work!® order picking workstations, and not just as theoretical marketing claims but in actual industrial applications.
One of the most demanding tasks in warehouse logistics is returns processing. In the mail order trade in particular, it is equally important as the goods-in and order picking activities. SSI SCHAEFER therefore also provides solutions for this in line with the ergonomics@work!® concept.
