Description

 System for checking, arranging and / or sorting goods arranged or to be arranged in a sales room, in a sales area and / or on a shelf

The present invention relates to a system for checking, arranging and / or sorting goods arranged and / or arranged in a sales room, in a sales area and / or on a shelf, the goods being presented and stored and / or sorted in a predetermined manner wherein the system comprises a database and at least one mobile data processing device with a display unit and in the database at least layout data on the arrangement of the goods are stored and the mobile data processing device at least receives data from the database or communicates with it.

Systems for checking, arranging and / or sorting goods arranged and / or sorted in a sales room, in a sales area and / or on a shelf are known, and in these systems the sales representative or the sales staff usually only

List printouts of the goods present on the shelves or the sales areas. The person who needs to fill or control the shelves then has to do the work on his own using the printouts.

The object of the present invention is to provide an apparatus and a method with which the sorting, sorting and checking of arranged goods is more efficient, faster and verifiable.

This object is achieved with a device having the features of claim 1. Advantageous embodiments of the invention will become apparent

CONFIRMATION COPY by the features of the claims referring back to claim 1. Likewise, a method using the claimed apparatus having the features of claim 16 is claimed. Advantageous embodiments of this method result from the features of claim 16

dependent dependent claims 17 to 34.

The invention is characterized in that the display unit displays, at least in regions, the layout of the goods to be arranged in a sales room, a sales area or a shelf. The person operating the device can then, based on the displayed layout, find the goods to be inspected, sorted, etc. faster in the sales area, e.g. locate a shelf. On the one hand, the person finds the goods faster through the visual display and, in addition, it is less advantageous

Confusion. The goods can therefore be sorted and sorted more quickly and with fewer errors. For this purpose, the mobile data processing device can advantageously communicate with a central data processing device. The required data is then either retrieved online from the central data base by the mobile data processing device and / or input or stored in advance in a memory of the mobile data processing device, in which case the data in the mobile data is offline

 Data processing device processed and new information can be entered. In the case of offline operation, the data is later compared with the central database as soon as a connection to the central

Database can be produced. In the central database, the information about the arrangement of the goods, their price, the number of goods to be placed at the respective place of goods, etc. are stored. As already stated, this information can be retrieved online via the mobile data processing device or stored in the mobile data processing device, so that an offline operation is possible.

The mobile data processing device may have inputting of information or commands and its operation via a touch panel.

Advantageously, the mobile data processing device on the display unit shows the goods to be checked and their position within the sales room, the sales area or the shelf at the same time or successively, in particular in an order predetermined by the system. As a result, the person is introduced in a predetermined order to the goods to be sorted or checked. This ensures that no goods or place where goods are to be placed are overlooked or

be left out.

The mobile data processing device may further comprise at least one input means with which information is transferred to the mobile

Data processing device can be entered or read. The input means can be a barcode scanner, a keyboard or a camera.

Of course, these input means in the mobile

Be integrated data processing device. But it is also possible that the input means are wired or via radio with the mobile

Data processing device communicate. The person using the mobile data processing device can input information into the mobile data processing device by means of the at least one input device and / or the touch panel, in particular with regard to existing or non-existing goods, of the goods location to be checked. Likewise, the person can be displayed on the display of the mobile data processing device as a function of the entered goods information with respect to the goods to be inspected, whether the goods are arranged correctly or at what place to place them.

By means of the mobile data processing device, a log can advantageously be maintained and stored with which the goods information of the checked, newly arranged and / or transferred goods is stored. These logged data can be fed to the central database online or at a later date.

An advantageous method for carrying out the correct arrangement and / or inventory check by means of the system according to the invention using a mobile data processing device described above may comprise the following operation:

In a step A, it is determined for which at least one

Goods group or which shelf or which shelves carried out a stock check or which goods at which place, especially in which shelf to be sorted, with this commodity, goods or this shelf or these shelves are displayed on the display unit.

The goods of a sales area or a shelf can be displayed graphically. By a color and / or flashing display of the goods or the place of goods, which or which should next be reviewed, sorted or resorted (s) to be highlighted. Thus, first the place of sale is displayed in the form of a sales shelf or a sales area at which several product locations are to be processed.

In a subsequent to the step A operation B then individually to be inspected goods or goods to be checked are displayed graphically, in particular color and / or indicated by flashing. This takes place until a termination by the user takes place or goods information to the processed goods or goods in the mobile data processing device z. B. entered by means of a barcode scanner and / or read.

The work step B is repeated until all goods of the shelf or the sales area sequentially filled, sorted, checked

(Stock check) and / or resorted. Of course, it is also possible that only certain goods or groups of goods of a shelf or a sales area are checked. So it is possible that the system e.g. only the ToplO products can be specified for checking one after the other in step B.

Thus, under the guidance of a stock check performed or

one after the other in the sales area or the shelf goods are sorted. The mobile data processing device receives the necessary data about the goods and their location and optionally their quantity / number (maximum hook loading) from the database either in advance and stores them in a memory or retrieves them online.

In step A, several goods of a sales room, a sales area or a shelf can be represented symbolically in their arrangement advantageously in a kind of overview.

In step B, in each case an image of the goods and / or their packaging on the display unit of the mobile data processing device are displayed.

In step B, the read-in actual goods information is in each case compared with the desired goods information for the respective goods to be inspected. If there is a match between the actual goods information and the desired goods information, then a corresponding entry to the goods location in the database can be made. In the event of a deviation of the actual merchandise information from the desired merchandise information, on the other hand, it is indicated on the display unit that the merchandise found at the inspected merchandise location is not arranged there, in particular hanging or lying, may and must be arranged at another location. Thereafter, it is indicated to which place the goods have to be brought or relocated from the goods location which has just been checked. For this purpose, the system checks whether the place to which the goods of the goods location just checked must be moved or relocated to the just processed department, sales area or just edited shelf or module belongs, and then either the new

Goods within the currently processed product group, sales area or just edited shelf or module is displayed or told the operator that he should remove the goods intermediate storage or from the place of purchase. If no more goods can be arranged at the new goods location, the operator can be displayed at least one other new place of goods for the goods to be relocated, if this is provided.

During the execution of the work step B, the operating staff may also be required to perform other activities. These are exemplary: a) to check the expiration date of the goods, provided that these goods are marked in the master data of the merchandise management system as MHD goods, ie goods for which a best before date is specified by the manufacturer; (b) indicate and indicate the date of minimum durability, in particular whether the date of minimum durability is in order, has expired, expires in less than 3 months or in 3-4 months, and this information is stored in the database for each product and if expired Best before date the goods are included in the returns list; c) to check whether the FIFO order of goods placed on a shelf or on a hook, one behind the other or one above the other, is complied with, ie goods must be sorted behind or above one another according to their best before date, with a product with a shorter best before date higher or higher is arranged as one

Goods with a longer best before date; d) additionally asks to check if a rack card and / or a

 Price information is available;

Upon completion of step B, the operator may also be prompted to take a photograph of the inspected merchandise category, e.g. from the shelf being edited, to make and transfer to the system.

In order to determine exactly where goods are being checked, at least two transmitters may be arranged in a development of the above-described system in the sales room, the sales area or at or near the shelf, the signals for determining the position and / or position of the mobile Send data processing device within the sales room, the sales area or in the range of the shelf. The transmitters can send continuously or only if there is a mobile

Data processing device is located near or the mobile

 Data processing device emits corresponding trigger signals.

Instead of or in addition to the above-described transmitters, one or more stations, in particular places of goods in the form of hooks and / or shelves, within the sales room, a shelf and / or a sales wall, one or more transmitters can be assigned. The transmitter can z. B. RFID chips that are triggered by the mobile data processing device, e.g. Send out information or the place of the goods.

The mobile data processing device receives from the

Salesroom, the sales area, the shelf or goods location emitted locating signals or information and determined based on the received

Information about their own location and / or position within the sales area, the sales area, on the shelf or the place of purchase. This is a

automatic detection of the currently inspected goods location possible, so that it can be checked whether the user in the right place or the the correct location of the goods indicated in step A or B. Likewise, it is possible for a random check by the user to check a product with regard to its correct location of goods by means of the at least one input device. For example, the mobile data processing device with the RFID chip of a package

communicate and, at the same time, also with the RFID chip of the goods location, e.g. a hook of a sales floor communicate to find out if the packaging hangs in the right place.

The system according to the invention and the associated method will be explained in more detail with reference to the drawings.

In one possible embodiment of the system according to the invention, the goods location layout data could be detected by means of software. Over a Interface, these layout data are transmitted to the central database and prepared here for the mobile data processing units in the appropriate format. Together with checklist data, the layout data is then made available to the mobile data processing units for mobile data exchange. For example, a sales representative at the

 Data transmission to be equipped with the appropriate data. When visiting a market, the appropriate layout data can be retrieved from the central database. For the stock check, e.g. the sales representative first enter some information about the market, etc. in his mobile data processing device. On request or automatically then the actual program for the stock check can be started. In a first step, all modules, e.g. Shelf sections of the market that are relevant for the exam. This can be done with a mask according to FIG.

 The sales representative can then select a module from the list, whereupon the respective module is displayed to him. A corresponding

Screen mask of the mobile data processing device is shown in FIG. The articles that are to be checked, sorted, etc. should be highlighted in color and / or flashing in the layout.

The screen mask of Figure 1 is assigned to the step A.

Thereafter, the operation B, i. the processing of the individual

Product locations one after the other. On the screen of the mobile

Data processing device is in the layout of Figure 2 the

Product flashing and / or colored to be checked first.

Because of the visual display, the sales representative can quickly get the job done

Locate the place where the goods to be checked or hung are to be found. The sales representative can select the flashing displayed product on the display, whereupon a product image (Figure 3) of the product to be checked / hung is displayed. The picture serves for

Control for the sales representative.

Depending on the setting, the following test procedures can then be queried for the respective goods location to be checked: Examination of the right hook - the respective article is scanned with the help of a barcode scanner. If the product is on the right hook, only the scanned barcode will be saved. If necessary, the application jumps back to the module view. If the product hangs on the wrong hook, there are two variants: a) If the product hangs on the wrong hook but in the correct module, a corresponding message appears on the display, as shown in FIG. b) If the product hangs on the wrong hook but in the correct module, a corresponding message appears on the display, as shown in FIG. 4 or FIG.

After the sales representative has confirmed the mask according to FIG. 4 or 5, the application jumps back into the module view according to FIG. 2. Here, the correct hook is displayed flashing in the layout of the module to which the wrongly hanging article is to hang. If the field representative clicks on this hook because he could hang the product on this hook, it will

Information saved. The module view flashes on the next hook. If the article does not fit the blinking hook, it will be checked if there are further possibilities to place the article in the selected module. If there are these, he will be asked again if the article fits on the hook. If the article also does not fit on this hook, it will be searched for a placement until there is no further placement for this product. Fits the article on none

Placement, the item will be posted for the return. The relevant ones

Screen masks are shown in FIGS. 6 and 7.

If the product hangs on the wrong hook and on the wrong module, the sales representative receives corresponding information in the form of the screen mask shown in FIG. 8 and he receives the request to set the product aside.

In addition, in the review of the respective goods still the

Date of minimum durability (MHD), provided that this check is activated. This option can be switched on centrally in the

Program control by authorized persons are turned on. With the MDH option turned on, the field worker will be through his mobile computing device after the scan of each product asked with the screen mask of Figure 9, if the

 Expiration date is still okay. He can answer this question with yes or no. The answer is saved. If the

 Sales representative replies with No can be stored with the screen mask of Figure 10 in addition to information that a product has been included in the returns list.

Another option is to check if a rack card is placed at the goods location. If this option is activated, the sales representative will be asked after the scan of each product with the mask according to FIG. 11 whether a so-called rack card is hanging on the hook. The answer (yes or no) is saved.

If the option Fifo is switched on, the sales representative will be asked after the scan of each product with the mask according to FIG. 12 whether the fifo order (Fifo = first in, first out) has been adhered to , The answer (yes / no) is saved.

If the option Price is switched on, the field worker will be asked after the scan of each product with the mask according to Figure 13, which price is indicated on the shelf for the product. The answer (the price) is also saved. At the end of a stock check per module, the sales representative is asked to take a photo of the shelf wall. This photo will also be saved and transferred to the central database at the end of the exam.

When operating only in offline mode, i. the mobile

Data processing device has no online connection to the central database, after the completion of operations A and B, the detected data, for. transmitted via UMTS or another connection to be established. If an online connection exists, the data can also be accessed directly, i. H. directly after the respective input, are transmitted to the database.

The recorded reports and logs can then be evaluated. Especially the stock check is of interest.

For the presentation of the modules, sales rooms, sales areas, shelves and / or product locations or goods on the display unit of the mobile

Data processing device, it is possible that stored in the database Dimensions, in particular the X and Y coordinates and height and width values. The necessary data is either retrieved online from the database or saved offline.

Also for the evaluation can be used for the view (Figure 14) of the shelf modules the possibility to graph based on the X / Y coordinates and height and width values, the shelf when calling the evaluation. In addition, the result values from the

Report entry can be color-coded in the ad. It can be made visible by means of colors errors. So mistakes can be made by

Blackening be presented. In spite of the blackening information can still be displayed for each location. Thus, this information can be transferred directly to the blackened areas e.g. be given in white writing (not shown). However, it is also possible to display this information for each module in a list, as shown by way of example in FIG.
