WCS (Warehouse Control System)

Illustration of our WCS (Warehouse Control Solution)

WaCS is a comprehensive, modular application suitable for all types of equipment that make up the solution. It coordinates and supervises all the scheduling, synchronisation and routing operations involved in intralogistics flows. WaCS is directly interfaced with the WMS and guarantees the optimum use of equipment as well as prioritising urgent orders, depending on the departure constraints of carriers.

 

 

 

 

 

Scheduling and synchronisation of logistics flows

Optimisation of the sequence

of priority orders to be prepared

 

Execution of replenishment

and preparation orders

Balancing the work

load in real time between different equipment

Management of the stocking

and de-stocking of shuttle systems, mini-loads and stacker cranes

Coordination of picking,

palletisation, stock management and replenishment activities

Management of sequencing

constraints

Weight 

and statistical controls

Routing of loads involving selection

of the shortest route

 

Supervision focusing on both production and maintenance

Monitoring of activity and current assignments

Visualisation of the general condition of the facility, each warehouse area and each piece of equipment

Visualisation of the condition of stock in shuttle systems, mini-loads, stacker cranes, etc.
