Concept: Sorting Assistance System

Concept, Group 03, WS1314

After analysing the previously collected data with different design analysis approaches, we came to the conclusion that time managment and error-reduction is the most important point for postal services.
We discovered that the sorting-process between two machine-steps which has to be done by hand has some potential for optimization.
Our plan is to help the workers accomplishing their task of sorting the batches coming out of the sorting machine with optical guidings. These indicate the correct place for the current batch in a clear way and speed up the process. Making mistakes (for instance putting the batch in the wrong place) leads to both acoustic and visible warnings that force immediate correction. Hence severe and costly misfunction of the machine can easily be prevented.
