The COGLAS WMS is also a warehouse management system. In this function it is first of all a system for managing stocks and locations and their relationship to each other. In addition this is the management of the transport systems.
Whatever a warehouse looks like, the COGLAS WMS is able to manage the topology of all existing warehouses with their specific characteristics in the background.
The software represents an individual storage bin through the 14-digit coordinate. Bins with the same characteristics can be grouped into zones. The zones may include, for example, storage areas and types of the storage as well as weight restrictions. In addition it is possible to define the access authorizations for the staff, industrial trucks, stacker cranes, material handling equipment and dangerous goods. A single storage bin can belong to n-zones. In addition, the complete storage unit control system is processed to the storage bins via the zones.
At the beginning of each activity the software generates a receipt – for example, with time, location, and material information – and stores it in the database. The process end is also acknowledged. So the system always records the complete order.
The obtained data form the basis for problem-free tracking and tracing and storage fee accounting is available at the push of a button.
Since the COGLAS WMS clearly separates the stocks and the inputs of the users, a warehouse can be used efficiently for different clients.
