Lucas Systems, Inc. has added Speedometer, a real-time productivity feedback tool, as part of its Jennifer VoicePlus system for voice picking and other warehouse operations. Speedometer gives voice picking users and DC managers real-time productivity updates and alerts.
Speedometer allows managers to set individual alert levels to provide real-time feedback to users as to their performance against pre-defined productivity standards. Those standards may be based on historical standards or engineered standards provided by a labor management system (LMS). By giving users real-time feedback about their performance, users can see additional gains in productivity. Speedometer alerts, which may be delivered by email or text message, let supervisors react quickly to production issues.
