Large companies, using subcontracting to transport the finished products to their place of distribution or raw materials to the place of production, organize the loading and unloading activities by imposing an arrival schedule of the trucks . In reality, the drivers do not respect these constraints and cause costly disruptions in the preparation or reception of loads: the ups and downs of staff occupation cause the continuos reorganisation of the in/out stock handling.
In a broader context of information exchange, ePick 2.0 will offer logistic stakeholders various value-added services: warehouse scheduling (WMS) based on truck arrival forecasting, exchange of traceability information (WMS-TMS ), shared and targeted geolocation, route optimization ...
The ePick 2.0 platform will be accessible in the form of subscriptions to the various services offered. These subscriptions can be subscribed via an operator of the sector.
The participation of CETIC in this project foresees the use of skills in engineering, quality and certification of complex software systems, human-machine interface and their optimization, more particularly applied to the fields of embedded and service-oriented systems.
The CETIC is working on the definition of a generic and contextualized graphical interface framework, to solve the dynamic constraint route calculation problem by extending a library developed at CETIC (OscaR) with generic algorithms and application scripting specific to these algorithms.
