Order Picking

London - England - England

Aug. 24, 2010 - PRLog -- When the first rays of sun entice barbecue enthusiasts to swap their couch and remote controls for grill tongs, supermarkets must have all barbecue dishes in stock and ready to go. The meat products and convenience foods produced by Trend Meal AG with HQ in Lich (Hesse) then become extremely popular, so it is vital for sellers to keep their shelves full. Whether steaks, pasta dishes or special diet meals – Trend Meal's trade marks are creativity and high quality.

And Trend Meal AG achieves its key competitive market advantages above all through its modern and flexible order processing system – impressing its customers with fast and complete deliveries, even when unforeseeable peaks in demand occur.

Fast Order Processing

The company's order-picking stations, which are equipped with modern METTLER TOLEDO ID30 weighing PCs, make a significant contribution to accelerating order processing. These power workstations offer a high degree of functionality through their combination of robust industrial PC technology and proven weighing technology in a single device. They also come with convenient, high-resolution touchscreens that allow fast entries and prevent user fatigue.

Versatility Through Open PC Architecture

The ID30 weighing PC, which runs MS Windows XP Professional, is able to utilize everything that PC technologies have to offer. Indeed, through direct integration of ID30 terminals into the modus foodvision® ERP system, developed by MODUS Consult AG for companies in the food production industry and based on Microsoft® Dynamics™ NAV, Trend Meal has been able to (significantly) increase both the speed and throughput of its order-picking operations. It is above all the visualization of the modus foodvision® software interfaces with the ID30 that increases process transparency and reduces errors. This ensures that incoming goods data is recorded in the inventory quickly, traceability data is documented seamlessly throughout the entire process and picking orders can be called up immediately at the weighing locations.

IDNet Balance Interface Increases Flexibility

To be able to react to sudden peaks in demand, the production structures at Trend Meal AG are set up for flexibility. Mr. Bratke, executive assistant, would therefore not want to be without the advantages that ID30 workplaces offer. And the METTLER TOLEDO IDNet weighing interface enables these workplaces to be deployed flexibly, especially within order-picking. Here, the weighing platform can simply be plugged into the ID30 – making it easy for the system to be moved and quickly set up at a different location or to expand order-picking operations by adding further ID30 workplaces. Trend Meal AG is currently planning to order further ID30 systems.
