Receiving, put-away, transfers, stock-taking, picking and loading are all performed with the technologies best suited for the purpose, enabling productivity improvements from 15% upwards plus a 100% shipping accuracy.

Receiving

The ideal receiving process is based on electronic ASN`s (Advanced shipping notice) and SSCC license plates (GS1-128 barcode or EPC RFID container identifier) which enables receiving a complete shipment with a single scan. In the real world however, these elements may not always be available which means that the receiving solution needs to offer an adaptable and easy to use tool to match the incoming shipments with the outstanding purchase orders.

AbakusWMS enables over 50% reduction of the pass-through time in reception, reducing requirement of extra inventory, making products faster available for sales and reducing related labor costs. Combined with quality assurance, quarantine functions, claims reporting, recording serial numbers and best before dates and the option for multiple operators to simultaneously receive multiple orders the receiving function offers versatile process control for even the most complex receiving functions.

Picking

Pick-by-Voice offers a unique combination of simultaneous productivity and accuracy improvements, providing a literally error-free process with a significant reduction in operating costs. Complemented with improved health and safety factors for the operators, the solution is the most flexible method for case and piece picking. With features such as variable weight, serial and batch number handling, replenishment requests and real-time progress tracking the solution also delivers automatic process control guaranteeing best practice operation models and a reduction potential in new employee training of up to 80%.

Picking with handheld computers offers support and similar process control as Voice for more versatile picking operations with a lower productivity requirement. The high accuracy level is based on using barcodes or RFID for verification and the solution also provides real time progress tracking. Hand-held computers also provide an excellent alternative when the operator needs to alternate between different tasks during the day.

Stock-taking

Stock-taking or cycle counting is a function which traditionally requires halting the entire warehouse for sometimes even days. As AbakusWMS provides real-time visibility into the warehouse, the need for stock-taking is reduced dramatically. This function can be performed as part of the picking process, enabling the operator to set the quantity after he has completed the picking assignment in a location or as a more traditional separate process where the counting is done by i.e. product group or a specific warehouse area. The system can be configured to require re-counting or recording additional data such as serial or batch numbers as further security for the activity.

Put-away & Transfers

Using license plates provides effortless right-goods to the right-place process in the warehouse. Put-away and transfers can be either system or operator controlled, enabling the right level of efficiency and flexibility for any organization. With rules based control system items may be put into the right location either by full pallets or splitting them into multiple locations based on factors like size or quantity. AbakusWMS enables 100% real-time traceability of all activities guaranteeing that the location of all items is known at all times.
