ROYAL 4 CLOUD WMS INBOUND FUNCTIONALITY
The use of Radio Frequency Scanners and Barcodes is truly the backbone of all WISE warehouse transactions. Automatic data collection, real-time transactions capture, and flexibly dynamic menus enable WISE users to utilize the WMS’s intelligence at incredible speeds and accuracy. All warehouse functions are performed and updated in real-time. So the moment a task is complete, the next task in the sequence is triggered. If a rush order is sent to the warehouse floor and needs to be processed immediately, WISE can make the adjustment to the open tasks immediately by putting that order first priority over the existing open pick tasks. WISE is also one of the only Warehouse Management Systems available today that runs the same language on the databases, clients, and RF devices. To accomplish this task, WISE seamlessly runs its own programs on the RF devices via terminal emulation. This also means it can support any brand of RF devices commercially available today such as Zebra (Symbol / Telxon), Intermec, Honeywell LXE, Psion Teklogix, or Janam. Currently, WISE supports over 32 standard warehouse RF functions.
ASSEMBLY / KITTING
RFID - (UPC TO EPC)
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), represents the next technology for retailing and distribution. These tags convey encrypted information that uniquely identifies items at the case, pallet, or container level. Often called “Smart Tags”, they are essentially chips with antennas that transmit Electronic Product Codes (EPC’s) instead of the standard printed UPC codes. Potentially these tags can even be embedded into the product itself, becoming an indistinguishable part of product labeling or structure. The tag’s information is transmitted automatically so there is no need to unpack or scan individual bar code labels. The result is improved inventory accuracy, reduced labor costs, and significant operational gains which all translate into increased savings and higher value.
> Total visibility of all inbound orders
> Complete support of ASN’s which can either be sent directly to WISE or via the host system.
> Simple single scan of a bar code, pallet ID, or pallet license plate
> Single receiver can work on multiple incoming orders simultaneously
> Multiple receiving personnel can work on a single order
> Personnel can receive unexpected shipments
> WISE captures all information possible at the moment of the goods receipt including: all lot
numbers, serial numbers, and all dates (create, manufacture, expiration, etc.)
WISE also incorporates consolidation rules, and the product and location’s dimensions (also referred to as cubing). The cubing functionality utilizes the product dimensions, weight and cube information to accurately ensure each location’s viability for putaway. This will also prevent product damage by specifying item-specific, or location-specific maximum load stacking parameters.
