Panotec QBOX is a volume optimization software that calculates the best position of items, that must be packed together in one or more boxes, based on a specific picking order.
Qbox, was developed in collaboration with the University of Padua. The software uses an algorithm to analyse and to display the best combinations of product positioning inside the right-sized box.
Qbox receives the order data from the customer via WMS with the list of items to be shipped, it analyses the volume of each item on the picking list and calculates the right-sized box for shipping. The software then shares the data required to produce the right-sized box with the packaging machine.
Available in two versions:
- CLOUD: a specific website accessed by using your login data available for an annual fee
- STAND ALONE: QBOX is installed and set up locally at the customer’s facility with the required HW.
The Best Fit level calculates the smallest and most suitable box for shipping and shows how to arrange the items inside the box
Best Select indicates the most suitable box for shipping based on the different boxes types available
