Optimize your storage areas with individually designed industrial shelves
The planning and configuration of shelves is a part of warehouse and material staging planning and helps your company place different containers on a material surface. With individual rack planning, limited space can be used optimally and travel time can be saved where its most needed. Effective planning of storage racks and assembly racks leads to an optimal use of available space and supports the accessibility to materials while avoiding unnecessary travel and picking times.
Rack planning in ipolog creates transparency as to which industrial rack, in which form, at which location of a material area is needed and at the same time contributes to the digital image of your warehouse environment.
With ipolog software the construction of individual racks is possible with the help of an intuitive operating system which makes prior knowledge completely unnecessary. Plan with the types of shelves commonly used in your industry and company to easily optimize your material supply.
This is why you should plan your rack planning in ipolog
Create racks with different dimensions and incline the shelf levels perfects for your containers and employees. ipolog ensures that the planned storage racks can be constructed and used in your warehouse. During the design process you can remain completely independent of manufacturer-specific design restrictions and can view the 3D designed industrial racks directly in your production and storage environment! View the corresponding containers directly in your industrial rack system and carry out rack occupancy planning with the click of a mouse.
Shelf planning creates generic (= manufacturer-independent) shelves, which are stored in the catalogue and are equipped with the corresponding load carriers in warehouse planning and material provision. A connection to manufacturer configurators is possible.
ipolog provides a quick overview of the level and channel of a rack where a container is located. Different rack types and occupancies can be quickly and easily compared with different planning scenarios in ipolog. Planning results can be confirmed with a parallel 3D view of the warehouse environment.
Discover the numerous advantages of rack planning in ipolog
With the possibility to not only plan storage racks, but to reuse them directly in ipolog, synergies are created and the planning process can be carried out in only one program! Shelves can be moved anywhere on the material surfaces and planned racks can be placed directly in the software where they are really needed.
Why your shelf planning should be designed in ipolog
You too can optimally use your space and avoid the unnecessary hassle of separate rack planning in a separate tool.
Use ipolog to create a holistic digital image of your warehouse or assembly environment and connect the containers in the racks you plan to use with your assembly and picking processes. The ipolog software automatically calculates the resulting travel times and thus provides you with information on the optimization potential of your material supply and assembly processes.
