Project name:

How can details on packaging be automatically captured and recorded in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system?

Status: Idea
Creation date: 23-11-2022

Project objectives:

BACKGROUND

The current checking process is manual and labour-intensive, thereby also resulting in possible human errors. Product attributes and packaging vary at an SKU level, requiring an intelligent system to identify and capture information across a broad range of products. Products being received need to be compared with orders placed to validate that the right products have been received.

REQUIREMENTS

  1. Capture image of the product from various dimensions
  2. Visual technology to read details on packaging and capture the specific attribute information, the position of which may vary across products
  3. Ability to add new attributes to be checked as and when required
  4. Product weighing
  5. Integration with our in-house ERP system

DESIRED OUTCOME

A technology that can enable fast, accurate and seamless data capturing thereby reducing human reliance and error, as well as faster turnaround of goods.

A proposed automation/solution would look like/be able to:

  1. Pick the product from the carton or from the infeed conveyor line
  2. Scan the bar code and compare if it is part of the consignment document being inspected
  3. Compare the image of the product with a master image and confirm the package version
  4. Read the batch number, COO, ingredients, etc., and update the same into the Warehouse Management System (WMS)
  5. If all the attributes are matching, then drop the product in the “accept” line, otherwise drop the product in the “reject” line for human intervention
