Meeting with you, the architect or shopfitter to determine the optimal position of the Apostore, where the storage intake unit and service door should to be installed and which conveyor technology is best suited.
In parallel, the stock is checked to ensure suitability for the robot. It is determined which packets can be handled by Apostore, which are still unknown and need to be checked and which packets are not suitable for automated machines. Your stock list is needed to do this analysis.
Following the packet analysis, the optimum shelving for the system is simulated. The number of shelves that can be hooked in at which distances to store the maximum number of packets according to your product mix is calculated.
A first on-site visit with your Apostore project manager takes place after contract signing. He will again take the measurements, talk through the plans with you and record any changes that have occurred in the meantime. The installation date will then be discussed jointly. Der Installationstermin wird gemeinsam besprochen.
Your Apostore will now be designed, manufactured from a modular system, customised for your pharmacy and your product mix.
The project manager will also coordinate the project with other sub-contractors (electrician/shopfitter/painter).
The picking system will be set up in your pharmacy approximately 12 weeks after your order. Two Apostore technicians usually take one week to build and set up the system and conveyors in your pharmacy.
Following the installation, the machine is commissioned and connected to the WMS. The robot undergoes a full inspection once more and is fine-tuned.
You and your employees are then trained in operating the machine. The first packets of the first storage are done jointly. Advanced user training takes place after 10-12 weeks during the first service.
After commissioning, support is provided by your service technician and the Hotline.
The final meeting with the project manager follows about two weeks after commissioning.
During the first service, after about twelve weeks, you and your staff will receive a refresher training on the machine. Questions are dealt with and more advanced functions of the machine are introduced.
