Getting any operation to run like clockwork is so much easier when there are no variables, but in the postal sector it will never be that simple. Not only is the demand for the services that posts and carriers provide constantly changing, but there are also many other factors that influence the business of delivering mail.
The weather, traffic conditions, staff shortage through illness, and interruption caused by machine malfunction or failure, all have a bearing on the outcome of deliveries. But the good news is the latest automation technology can iron out all these peaks and troughs.
At Post-Expo Hong Kong 2016, taking place on May 24-26, Prime Vision will be presenting a paper that outlines the new capabilities in predictive decision making, sorting and operational management. This technology closes the decision gap based on the live environment and allows changes to be made on the fly to optimize the whole process.
Prime Vision will provide illustrations of how its own MailMatch System is constantly evolving to improve operation efficiency and provide a foundation for the incorporation of new services. Through its open system architecture it is able to link with all leading sorting systems, databases and web platforms.
The latest generation of MailMatch is based on a central decision system for sorting process optimization and is designed to acquire data from different sources such as images, measurements and machine notifications. It enriches data to enhance dynamic sorting decision making, and provides a source for smart data applications for dynamic planning and predictive maintenance.
