Has the aim to improve company information management and data exchange between existing Information Systems as: ERP, production planners, supply chain software systems. Can use advanced identification technologies like RFID or simpler barcode.
WMS warehouse logistics – warehouse/factory real-time map High positional precision for low-rotation products Complete vision of the site, showing every single event in real-time List of the products contained on each site location (product type, quantity, supplier, location, arrival date,…) Monitoring of various site/location parameters (such as occupation %, quantity, rotation index, etc)
WMS warehouse logistics typical components arrival management via palm pc Company LAN Office 1 Office 2 Administration Matching between components arrival (travel documents) and Supplier order previously acquired. Order is confirmed or updated. Chip RFID To stick on pallet Automatic LOT generation (configurable by Customer)
WMS warehouse logistics – fork-lift missions for storage Database Storage of the product stored on the input area Via palm-pc, MapWarehouse discovers the most convenient place where to stock the product Movement orders are generated for stocking the product Forklift operators take in charge the movement order and perform the stocking Gate RFID Click on the location to see all the products/lots/Serial numbers contained PC PC “embedded”
WMS warehouse logistics algorithms of positioning and path-mission optimization Incoming pallet TAG - RFID printing Paper roll TAG - RFID dispenser TAG - RFID Chip RFID sticked on pallet Chip RFID sticked on shelf Match Order/DDT
WMS warehouse logistics algorithms of positioning and path-mission optimization PC “Embedded” onboard on the forklift (antenna and reader included)
(option) Display for forklift operator support to help about :
No action needed from forklift operator .
Chip RFID Sticked on pallet Chip RFID Sticken on shelf
Mission path & storage position “suggested” by server application upon proper configuration and rules
WMS warehouse logistics warehouse creation Easy and fast software startup Full system configuration using only the mouse A lot of configuration possibilities for best flexibility
WMS warehouse logistics – Areas and containers
For each site area different containers can be added (shelves, pallets, bins)
Each container type has different properties and behaviours from a traceability point of view (new lots generations)
WMS warehouse logistics algorithms of positioning and path-mission optimization
Product classes can be associated to specific warehouse areas
Weight assigned for loading
Weight assigned for unloading
Weight for storage time before unload
Weight for expiration date
Weight of occupation percentage
Products within specific areas will have priority in in/out handling
Map Warehouse can integrate and/or interface with many factory devices
Pilot automatic-forklift (PC driven) movements
Switch on/off electronic devices (also in network environment)
The above feature permits automation and control of factory processes executed by electromechanical devices.
Factory devices interface – AGV movements with drag&drop(1) Just drag&drop a container between a position to another, it will cause the real movement of the Automatic Guided Vehicle through a specific communication protocol Depending on product type, the workflow automatically moves the containers in and out to/from the plant, when required by the specific task.
Rfid reader Tag Rfid Factory devices interface – AGV movements with drag&drop(2)
Depending on the product type, the workflow automatically switches on the plant and determines the depuration task duration. It can be configured manually. Different colours for different plant status Green: on Grey: off Blue: waiting for start Orange: discharging Factory devices interface – Automation of depuration plants example(1)
Factory devices interface – Automation of depuration plants example(2)
Factory devices interface – Sales office Sales office The sale order makes the workflow to run The workflow execution makes stopping depuration process, generates AGV missions, prepare lists for packaging and shipping
From the product lot on the package label, the system recieves the full process information Supplier and origin (catching area) Tasks list performed on this product lot Containers on which the product lot was Task details Factory devices interface – Process traceability (food traceability example)
