Torq IT developed an innovative 2-way sizer platform using Pimcore as the backbone of the process.
After arriving at the distribution partner, the product shipment is unloaded and carted to the QA area where the barcode on the product case is read and validated by the QA system. The operator then places the product case on a parcel sizer and takes a webcam photo of the product, measures its dimensions, and weighs it. Each scan coincides with a barcode reader scan and is used for barcode validation as well as operator ease of use. The scanning process is quick and operators can scan 100-200 items per hour.
Each barcode scan is stored as a unique record by SKU/case size in the PIM system. Historical data for a given SKU can be viewed to show each time the SKU was scanned and data points across scans can then be compared to determine any variance between the new scan and the historical scans. For example, imagery from each scan session is stored and can be used to diagnose any box art issues. If there are variances, the QA operator can create a QA ticket or take another action based on the results.
