GDS

Issues
  • When employees are performing picking tasks that involve long reaches, bending postures, they are exposed to awkward postures; that is, the positions of their shoulders, elbows and back deviate significantly from more neutral positions. Repeatedly performing tasks in such positions poses increased stress on the joints and spinal discs.
  • In warehouse operations, picking operation takes 50~60% of labor times. Picking and putaway are most time-consuming, labor intensive operations in warehouse.
  • We designed and developed a labor friendly solution-Goods to Destination System (GDS).
