Since the parts depot was established in 1993, the sorting rack system constructed in-house has been used for sorting parts and accessories. This system was based on a digital sorting system, and it distributes and arranges products on shelves by delivery destination.
During the sorting of shipment products, when the barcode applied to the product delivered from the warehouse is read on the car truck, the sorting shelf lane information is displayed on the station terminal on the car truck, and the insertion position display lights up at the same time. The worker inserts the product at the indicated location and touches the display to turn off the light. This process continues until the order is completed.
When a lane has all the shipment products, the shipping side display lights up. The shipping side worker detects the products by reading the product barcode in the rear packing area and packs the boxes.
The initial sorting rack system sorted products that were picked for each order from the roughly 50,000 types of inventory parts to the sorting shelves in six zones (192 lanes). However, the number of parts and orders for accessories increases with the number of vehicles sold. In addition, there was an insufficient number of sorting points in the sorting rack system due to increased shipment destinations and operational problems such as display malfunctions and disconnections.
The barcode of a part is scanned at the station car truck, and the lane information is displayed on the terminal.
