WERMA’s andon lights chosen by major retailers

WERMA’s andon lights chosen by major retailers

AndonSpeed - an innovative plug-and-play andon light set manufactured by WERMA to provide prompt warning of disruption and breakdowns in logistics operations - is being chosen by major UK online retail operations. To date, in excess of 1,500 systems have been delivered to 16 different operations.

Reducing downtime, releasing bottlenecks in the system and responding quickly to calls for assistance are three key issues which slow down any logistics operation and effect output and efficiency.

Andonspeed enables processes in warehousing and logistics to be optimised. The system provides effective signalisation and data reporting in warehouse applications. By just pressing a button a signal light is illuminated on the workstation, clearly indicating the call for action required.
By responding directly to the andon light, solutions to problems can be found, reaction and waiting times reduced, and routing speeded up - all making for more efficient and lean processes.

The software package supplied with the kit saves, organises and evaluates all data collected in one database. You can obtain accurate and impartial reports and tap into unused capacities.
Intuitive and easy to use, Andonspeed is quick to install and ready for use. The simple activation of traditional traffic light colours - green, red and amber - make it suitable even for unskilled or seasonal staff.

Detailed reports can be obtained with just one mouse click; clear overviews in the control station screen provide concise reports keeping you informed all of the time without the need for manual collection of data.

Transparency of process and waiting times, fault conditions and disruption to productivity enable you to take decisions based on real facts.

With an overview of various processes and identification of bottlenecks, solutions can be found quickly and lasting counter measures implemented.
