Pick-by-Voice to boost logistics processes
Guided by voice, the operator interacts with the system through keywords, increasing speed, accuracy and productivity.
Voice picking reduces accidents for operators by allowing them to remain focused on their actions at all times.
KFI, a player in supply chain and pick-by-voice
The Supply Chain is a field that has rapidly turned towards Industry 4.0 with the introduction of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). KFI, as a key player in this sector, has identified voice solutions as a productivity driver for these new digital opportunities.
Indeed, many supply chain processes are extremely cumbersome, whether it be preparation, sorting, assembly or quality control, productivity losses were substantial. Taken to the scale of an entire organisation and its volume, this raises a real problem of profitability. This is where the pick-by-voice was quickly identified as a solution.
A Pick-by-Voice solution proudly powered by Vivoka
The aim of pick-by-voice is to vocalise a maximum number of tasks performed by the operators with the centralised system. This specialised software for the supply chain allows, with the help of a headset and a nomad device specific to each user, to give instructions and follow their execution through the site.
The voice commands thus realized and integrated are developed with the Voice Development Kit, Vivoka’s speech development kit. In particular, it was used to configure an ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition) engine and its logistics-specialized grammar with minimal use of its processor.
