What Are Smart Warehouse Systems?
Smart warehouse systems are the result of the various interconnected warehousing technologies working together. They form a technological ecosystem where goods are received, identified, sorted, organized and pulled for shipment automatically. The best smart warehouse solutions automate almost the entire operation, from suppliers to customers, with minimal errors.
When considering smart warehousing, you should keep an eye out for a few traits that mark a successful smart warehouse system. Some of these traits are:
Data Visibility and Transparency
What Makes Up a Smart Warehouse?
The Internet of Things
Warehouse Management Systems
WMS is the foundation of all of your smart technology. A WMS solution has many uses, from gathering valuable data to helping users manage warehousing processes. This allows you to keep track of how efficient your warehouse’s day-to-day operations are.
Ygl WMS4.0 completely replaces the system input and retrieval steps into barcode / RFID scanning.
Scanning in Ygl WMS4.0 is performed directly by the field blue collar staff, thus providing the real-time online update of the stock status.
‘Pick & Pack’ optimises the picking routes and points to the accurate location of stocks. “Actual Location Plotting” maps the physical storage area to the system.
Ygl “Bin Optimisation” maximises warehouse bin storage capacity and provides transparencies on the % usage of all the bins.
“Kitting” allows multiple item to be packed into boxes, multiple boxes into carton, and multiple cartons into pallet. One scan on the pallet barcode identifies all the items in the pallet. This enables the kitting process to be conducted days before delivery, and speed up the pallet loading on container / vehicle time.
Implementing Smart Warehouse Systems
It’s time to start implementing automation. Start small and build towards automation. We suggest starting with a WMS. It automates the SOPs and processes of the entire warehouse operations. It provides the common cloud platform for all the stakeholders to operate on. It’s essentially the heart of a smart warehouse system.
Upon the completion of the Warehouse Management System, integration to warehouse automations such as arms, smart conveyors, auto lifters and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) may be established through Ygl Warehouse Control System (WCS). This completes the Smart Warehouse Solution whereby jobs may be assigned to machines, and machines report back on job done. Full transparencies of stock status are provided on the cloud on a real-time on-line basis.
Digitalisation is the key to moving labour intensive operation to transparent, systematic and scaleable operation. It is the only key to managing a large, multiple discipline and multiple site business.
