Warehouse Barcode Management System

  • Warehouse Operations is an integral part of any organization involved in supply chain operations. Inventory visibility, material movement, storage utilization and manpower utilization are typical challenges which have a direct impact on the efficiency & accuracy of the operations. Mostly organizations go for inventory management or warehouse management applications which help in the planning and execution of orders in a systematic manner.
  • Traditional Approach
    • The traditional approach in the warehouse is that most of the operations are dependent on people. Despite having very good WMS or Inventory Management System, the warehouse worker can make mistakes since he performs all the operations by recording everything on paper. This information is further updated in the information system which manages the warehouse inventories.
    Key Problem Areas
    • Despite having a powerful planning & management system for warehouse operations, if the execution happens manually then any system can fail any time. Every area has scope of error which could be due to lack of knowledge or due to other operations constraints.
    • Inventory Movement :
      While moving inventories within the warehouse, a user can make the mistake of keeping an item in a different location which is not intended for that item. This not only affects the stocks of the item itself but also affects the bin capacity for the other item which could lead to further errors in binning.
    • Wrong Picking :
      This is one of the most common mistakes in similar looking items. In a manual system, the user records the accurate picking on the paper which goes into the system, however in real, he picks a different item. This creates a problem in the inventories of two items apart from material return from the customer.
    • Inventory accuracy :
      In the manual system, the level of accuracy always depends on the number of inefficient workers on the floor. A person doing wrong count, a person writing wrong number of items, a person skipping one item from count, all contribute towards inventory inaccuracy. Wrong inventory always results in either over stocking or order cancellation due to non-availability of items.
    • User Training :
      One of the biggest problems in the manual warehouse operations is the user training. While the old staff “remembers” warehouse locations, the new staff needs time to learn the same. In an unmanaged warehouse, the problem becomes more serious when there is no bin identification and people pick items on the basis of “experience” basis.
  • Our Solutions
    • The Warehouse Management System (WMS) designed ground up for mobility enables the warehouse worker to perform his operations in seamless manner. The distributed architecture of the solution gives best performance with more flexibility. Capturing of data directly from the warehouse floor gives accurate visibility of inventory levels, storage utilization and motivated workers who don’t have to worry about the accuracy of items. The worker now just has to focus on material handling and moving to desired locations rather than spending time on papers to ensure operations accuracy.
    • Our Warehouse Management System automates manual based processes from purchasing to shipping and delivery to customers, having complete visiblility and control is a mouse click away. Warehouse Management Solutions has been deployed to customers across a variety of industries including logistics service, wholesale, distribution. manufacturing and automotive among others.
    • The mobile instance of application runs on portable mobile device for automating all operations like Quality Check of received items, Put away of items to location, Pick & Pack from location, loading and stock take.
    • Key Highlights :
    • - Label Printing:
      Label printing is done by integrated label printing utility in WMS.
    • - Receiving Stock:
      Material Receiving can be against purchase order, transfer order or production order.
    • - Location Marking:
      Location based storage of material increases the speed at which you can pick your orders, storage space utilization and the accuracy of your stock.
    • - Put Away:
      Put away helps to know the location of all products. Through Portable Device, scan location barcode first and then material barcode.
    • - Picking:
      At the time of Picking, WMS verifies that the right item at the right quantity is picked. System also facilitatets FIFO and LOT No based picking.
    • - Dispatch:
      At the dispatch point, through Portable Device, user can make sure intended products of intended quantity are being delivered to the customer.
    • - Physical Stock Taking:
      Through Portable Device, stock count can be done by scanning product barcodes.
    • - Reporting Management:
      The WMS is designed to provide a wide range of reports based on specific data analysis.
    • - Wi-Fi and Barcode System:
      Every warehouse funcation can benefit from the mobility solutions i.e. real time availability of information, from receiving to replenishment, picking and packing to shipping. If Wi-Fi is not available data can be offline synchronized with the system.
    • - Third party ERP Integration (SAP/Oracle/SQL etc.)
