Resumen:
Un equipo de investigación de una universidad italiana especializado en ingeniería industrial ha desarrollado una nueva serie de políticas y metodologías de almacenaje que, aplicadas en el diseño de almacenes existentes o nuevos almacenes automáticos, reducen el consumo de energía en la manipulación de mercancías. Según las simulaciones llevadas a cabo, estas políticas permiten reducir los costes de almacenaje hasta un 40%. El equipo de investigación busca socios para realizar pruebas de campo y mejorar y lanzar la solución al mercado. El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de investigación, cooperación técnica y licencia.

Tittle:
Protocol for energy-efficient design and management of automated warehouses
Summary:
Researchers from an Italian University developed a novel set of storage policies and methodologies which, applied to the design of new automated warehouses or to existing ones, can significantly reduce energy consumption for the handling of goods. According to the simulations carried out these policies can lower storage costs by 40%. The group is looking for partners to field test and refine the solution and to bring it to market within research/technical cooperation and license agreemeent.
Description:
The solution consists of a series of storage policies that, if applied to the design of new automated warehouses or to existing ones, can significantly reduce energy consumption associated with the handling of goods.
The novel methodologies make it possible to link the level of service required from the warehouse with the consumption of electricity necessary for stocking operations. In particular, they set stocking and sequencing policies for programming stacker cranes and other automated machines, to improve the energy efficiency of such operations.
Scientific studies and simulations supporting the validity of the model were published and numerical simulations have been carried out.
The research group, specialized in Industrial Engineering, is currently looking for partners for field-testing the methodology in an industrial context, refining the solution and co-development and commercialisation opportunities. Research and technical cooperation agreement are considered, as well as license agreements.
Advantages and Innovations:
The proposed methodology enables significant reduction of storage costs by increasing energy efficiency of stocking operations. The development and consolidation of e-commerce has created a need for managing increasingly rapid and automated warehouses, leading to high energy consumption in these facilities: the new solution improves existing technology.
The ultimate beneficiaries of this new methodology are businesses interested in building an automated warehouse.Sectors for which the solution is particularly suitable include food and beverage, pharma, and retail.
Stage of Development:
Under development/lab tested

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The University is looking for partners to field test and refine the methodology and for bringing it to market. The proposed methodologies are addressed primarily to companies that plan and design warehouses and stocking systems, for whom energy efficiency is one of the key variables to account for when designing automation systems. Another potential reference market is that of the planning and design of stacker crane systems.
Research and technical cooperation as well as license agreement are available, in accordance with the partners´ specialisation and market interest.
