Define and associate your locations and docks. Mark your main location at each dock as the ‘Anchoring’ location.
If an order has already started to be picked and anchored at a dock, every item picked for that same order will direct you to anchor it at the same dock.
If the main anchoring location at a dock has hit capacity, the system will suggest the next closest dock location in sequence, making it easy to make quick adjustments on the fly.
The U-Boat carts will hold inventory after pickers take it off the shelves. These U-Boats are then moved around the warehouse, tracked, and can be placed in a staging area at the dock, prior to being unloaded and the inventory being placed in specific locations.
Once items are anchored to locations at a dock, based on the dock assigned to the sales order, inventory will be automatically relieved from the locations on this dock when the order is shipped.
Administrators can give access to certain super-users to override the suggested anchoring location in scenarios where the anchoring location has been filled or a rush order has been put on the order being picked.
Conduct a series of audits on smaller subsets of inventory that are housed in specific locations of your warehouse.
Schedule outbound sales, inter-company transfers, and inbound purchase order receipts on available docks.
The WMS system provides your manufacturing and distribution operations with the ability to reach new levels of functional accuracy.
Utilize the WMS to stage inventory to a specific dock.
