Purpose of Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems
The main purposes of installing ASRS are as follows:
1. Increase Storage Capacity: ASRS ordinarily increase the storage density in warehouse that is the total maximum number of items that can be stored.
2. Increase systems Throughput: ASRS increase the number of loads per hour that the storage systems can receive and place into storage and retrieve and place into storage and retrieve and deliver to workstations.
3. Reduce Labor Costs: By automating the systems of retrieving storage and delivering materials laobr and related costs are often reduced.
4. Improve product Quality : Because of human error in identifying materials the wrong parts are often delivered and assembled into products. These errors often occur because of similarly in the appearance of different materials . automated systems that must identify parts based on bar codes or other identification methods are not as subject to these kinds of identification errors.
