Individual Equipment Speeds
The Genesis System software uses the actual speeds of each piece
of warehouse equipment instead of an average speed for all the
equipment. The travel speed of each piece of equipment will be
measured and used as the travel speed for the employee using
that piece of equipment. This provides the most accurate goal
time for each individual employee for the job they are working
at with the equipment they are actually using.
To prevent duplicate data entry and multiple locations of
similar information the Genesis System uses Custom Interfaces to
transfer data from your current systems into the Genesis System.
Information such as employee name, employee number, employee
wage rates and home department are typically transferred from
your payroll software. Work assignments, case counts,
pallet counts are transferred from your warehouse management
Three Dimensional Work Area Map
The Work Area Map is a three dimensional representation of the
warehouse. The Work Area Map is used to calculate distances
traveled by employees and their equipment. Each of the selection
and reserve locations, as well as the dock areas, aisles, travel
areas, and office locations are placed into this computerized
version of your warehouse using grid coordinates. Travel
distance is then calculated using the floor coordinates and
vertical distance is measured for multi-level selection and
forklifts accessing the reserve locations above the selection
Using the Standard to calculate goal times also allows the
Genesis System to generate accurate planning reports to assist
in scheduling of staffing requirements.
Our reports are designed to provide you with the information
that you and your staff needs to effectively use the program.
Since our background is in running large and small distribution
centers, we know the information that you need and the format
that is most useful to you to optimize the performance of your
Time Clock Functionality
Since the Genesis System tracks the time spent on each job and
the time spent at work, additional time tracking systems may not
be necessary. Time is synchronized with atomic clocks operated
by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and US
Naval Observatory (USNO).
Heat Index (optional)
Adjusts standard to account for extreme heat or cold variations
due to weather conditions.
Warehouse Capacity Index (optional)
Adjusts standard to account for unusual over capacity, such as
holidays, in the warehouse accounting for additional congestion
