As a comprehensive software solution the COGLAS WMS fulfills all prerequisites for efficient control of order picking and the accompanying flow of information in modern distribution or production centers. In addition the system helps to optimize order picking processes and to reduce their costs.
Processing of picking orders (transfer orders) is handled by transfer order management. All usual picking methods can be mapped.
The software determines for internal and external users – taking into account master data (length, width, height, weight, etc.) – the number and the state of picking units to be packed and provides the pickers with route-optimized processes. In doing so the software pays attention to the items and order requirements and issue items, for example, according to FIFO or LIFO. Depending on the warehouse topology, order picking takes place in one or more stages. It is also possible to pick orders that have been put together in a meaningful way parallel. In addition to picking, the system can print documents such as spare parts and assembly labels right up to the shipping label for Pick, Pack and Ship.
Picking orders can be transmitted via data transmission to the mobile terminals of the order pickers or using the COGLAS Pick-by-Voice technology.
The COGLAS WMS simulates the complete process of order picking when the order is received, taking numerous restrictions into account. These include, for example, the pallet type, the packing height and the packing weight. There is also an availability check.
The software supports the standard EAN 128 without limitation. The complete documentation of the pallet contents by means of graphics and an amount bill is included. Optimal shipment tracking and quality control is thus guaranteed.
