- Sequenced parts are selected based on the specific end items they are to be included in.
- Sequencing carts deliver specific parts matched to specific end items on the assembly line.
- Acculinc® ensures that the proper part is matched to the end item being assembled.
Sequencing is a process of picking and presenting the proper parts to the line-side for inclusion in an end item or sub-assembly. Parts are end item specific, meaning non-common parts with unique characteristics distinguished by the model, size or color of the end item they are to be included in. It delivers the proper parts to the manufacturing line at the right time and in the correct sequence. We carefully engineer line-side storage locations, storage volumes, parts presentation and delivery methods. We design and build handling methods specific to your needs to minimize travel time and increase material flow and safety while reducing traffic and congestion. We develop special application tools, custom delivery vehicles, flow racks and sequencing/kitting carts to make material flow to the assembly process easy.
We optimize the flow path and material delivery routes to make picking simple. Parts are location-coded and stored based on usage and in picking order while locations are designated for shortest delivery to the line. Standard parts that are used in all end items are separated from specific parts (model/size/color), and similar parts for different end items are stored in separate locations. The parts that traditionally cause pick errors are given special attention when planning their location and selection whereas the highest-value parts and those most prone to damage are picked last. Your Production Order and Bill-of-Materials become our pick sheet. Our AccuLinc® system scans every action on every part and captures all part movement history. Comprehensive, electronic scanning at every station enables the serial tracking of parts, sequencing, kitting, repacking and labeling all in a technology-enabled and error-proof structure. Additionally, our AccuLinc® system ensures 100% inventory and pick accuracy.
