OPT Warehouse: do not give up on your savings! Optimization suite for the warehouse manager of the future!
OPT WAREHOUSE - Warehouse process optimization
What are the benefits I get with Opt Warehouse?

Cutback picking and stocking costs

Warehouse space optimization

Rack up customers service levels

Improve resources management and workloads

ACT Operations Research is proud to open the doors to its latest release: a set of math-optimization models' libraries with excellent integration capabilities with WMS and advanced adding-value functionalities for picking and inventory management, make OPT Warehouse a really best-of-breed warehouse process optimization system. Faster process execution, optimized spaces and workforce, deliver higher productivity and cost savings while lifting service levels.


Usage model
A number of optimization modules empower your WMS to boost warehouse performance.


OPT Heights
With ACT Operations Research OPT Heights your warehouse's racks will use the lowest number of shelves of the right depth and breadth while looking at the in/outbound scheduled parcels. Wasting a great amount of space is just as easy. With OPT Heights , costly and limited spaces are not disused and its flexibility can cope with parcels shape changes with small space re-allocation and the best shelves deployment.


OPT Stock
ACT Operations Research OPT Stock optimizes the positioning of inbound stock picking units into your warehouse while automatizing the stocking process. This powerful tool manages the saturation level of your warehouse space: it looks at how much space is actually used while balancing the wasted space and making pallets' let-down list foolproofed. Pallets rack capacity, typology of goods (e.g. food, non-food) are among the constraints weighed by OPT Stock. By levering on combined optimization policies your warehouse won't see anymore the same saturation periods through e.g., less picking-up/stocking distance, less pallets/shelves empty spaces, minimum stock storage height). OPT Stock can be coupled with simulation systems (ARENA and SIMIO) both in phases of analysis and dimensioning.


OPT Display
ACT Operations Research OPT Display spots the best position for stock picking units while keeping your warehouse display up to date: OPT Display knows what is where on your warehouse shelves! Optimization boosts productivity and takes diverse constraints into consideration like products characteristics (e.g. perishable, non-perishable, staple, fashion), modules compatibility, units' weight. The system creates an intuitive "red list" where "bad positioned" items are listed and the right steps to reposition these are suggested through smoothly sequences. OPT Display makes let-down list foolproof whith no extra costs. This module can be coupled with simulation systems (ARENA and SIMIO) both in phases of analysis and dimensioning while providing a dynamic view of the system behaviour.

OPT Picking
ACT Operations Research OPT Picking is a powerful optimization tool designed to lift the picking process productivity. It exploits paths and time travels at their fullest within hard constraints such as loading unities capacities, max weight, volumes and path directions. For a single or for different customers OPT Picking comes up with picking lists and scheduling. This module can be coupled with simulation systems (ARENA and SIMIO) both in phases of analysis and dimensioning.


OPT Cluster
With ACT Operations Research OPT Cluster you can group orders in a batch, and batch picking to filling the production process or to be used by sorters is part of its robust functionality. Orders are clusterized by e.g., destination, dimension, colour while achieving the best system's downward productivity or keeping the returned goods at minimum. This module can be coupled with simulation systems (ARENA and SIMIO) both in phases of analysis and dimensioning.


Main features and add-on components

  • Integration with simulation systems to weigh in stochastic variables while avoiding designing on average input values.


Vertical markets

  • Logistics (e.g., wholesale/retail distribution warehouses)


ACT Operations Research technology integration and scalability

  • developed through Java technology
  • integrates with any SQL database compliant
  • integrates with ERP, TMS, WMS
  • a very powerful engine designed for parallel calculus
  • scalable for a number of CPUs.
