Problem Statement

  • Our customer’s storage space has been exhausted due to manually operated store and this impacted their productivity.
  • Their current storage space is 120 square meters. They need to reduce the storage space of C and D class articles and utilize them for production activity.
  • Continuous increase in farm equipment product range decreased the picking accuracy.

The Solution

  • Craftsman installed VStore, a space-saving solution that is also flexible to future storage requirements.
  • The manually operated store was replaced with two VStore of 8m height occupying 20 square meters each, thus freeing up their valuable floor space.
  • This transformed the “Man to Goods” method to “Goods to Man”, thus enabling high transparency, quick and reliable access to the articles. As a result, picking errors have been reduced significantly.
