Cimcorp’s proven warehouse control software (WCS) has been developed to manage fast-moving, real-time, robotic handling operations in order to optimize material flows and meet tight delivery deadlines
Unbroken chain of control
Cimcorp WCS provides an unbroken chain of control for manufacturing execution (MES) and warehouse management (WMS) – from individual robot movements through material flow to interfaces with host and other systems.
In distribution centers, WCS supervises the required warehouse functions, including control of the order picking and material flow. The WCS system receives all the relevant data such as products, order lines, volumes, priorities and dispatch deadlines, from the customer’s host system. WCS can also control consolidation and dispatch planning so that orders are sent to the shipping dock in reverse drop sequence, ready for loading into delivery vehicles.
WCS controls all automated equipment and takes care of key functions such as receiving products from upstream processes, routing of products to the robots and sorting them by SKU, while Maintaining FIFO.
The software controls the storage operation and organizes process execution. Easy-to-use graphical user interfaces assist operators by showing the real-time status of the system, including inventory visibility, giving full control over WIP (Work In Process).
