APPLICATION

Infor WMS system automates all internal warehouse business processes: acceptance, putaway, reservation and replenishment, integration, assembly of items, shipment, inventory, human resource management, cross docking, rejection and returns processing, warehouse resource management, etc.

Features
  • Coverage of the whole range of potential requests regarding functionality of warehouse control system, enabling to efficiently use warehouse labor force, fully optimize warehouse business processes with any possible turnover and storage rules;
  • A wide range of custom settings enabling to configure warehouse parameters (to create slots, group them by types, areas, sections), set up putaway and selection strategies for the whole dataset of standard and configurable criteria, regulate rights of access to resources and their groups to certain warehouse areas and operations. All this enables to react promptly to possible changes in business processes, optimize own resources required to move goods inside the warehouse;
  • Application of RF data acquisition and transmission devices (RF-terminal), as well as pick-by-voice devices. These technologies enable to considerably enhance efficiency of warehouse personnel, simplifying work with the system and with the goods at the warehouse;
  • Simultaneous and independent work of many users, both with FR-terminals and at work stations. Each user opens his own session, works under his own login, which enables, incidentally, to trace KPI by all warehouse processes, as well as current division of work among the staff.
  • Bin location warehousing principle. Each slot at the warehouse has its unique code, which allows the operator to know at any time where each SKU (stock keeping unit) is and what its attributes (batch, quantity, weight, volume, etc.) and conditions (nondefective, defective, out of date, blocked, etc.) are;
  • Accounting and processing of goods using any measuring units with any required nesting depth (pallet – crate– box – inside packaging – piece);
  • Batch accounting: a batch can have up to 12 attributes (production date, expiration dates, supplier’s batch, etc.). As turnover rules (FEFO, LEFO, etc.) are set up, any of these attributes may be chosen
  • Support of the ABC turnover principle;
  • The RF-terminal screen can be flexibly configured to reach required ergonomics depending on the customer’s business process;
  • Inventory accounting (both in cycles, for certain goods, and physical (the whole stock, with processes stopping in areas where inventory is taken). RF-terminals can be used to enable the operator to track all discrepancies revealed during on-line calculation;
  • System Guided work. RF-use can get assignments from the system instead of management. The system enables to set up the process in such a way that the user gets assignments of various types in priority order depending on their assigned “role”;
  • Enables to dynamically change priorities of certain warehouse assignments depending on the situation in the warehouse. For example, for picking an express order in boxes, the necessary bin in the picking area has to be replenished quickly. The user at the work station can raise the replenishment priority level for this bin from standard to maximum; as a result, this slot will be replenished first.
