WMS - ERP Integration
Priority's WMS is an integrated module within Priority's ERP system. Adoption of an integrated WMS can help eliminate a number of data synchronization challenges, facilitate a more incremental approach to implementation of WMS. Such integration also enables incremental shut-down in case of errors.
- Picking & Shipping
- Picking or shipping waves can be created for specific customers, orders or order items.
- A wave of tasks can be created to pack ordered items in preparation for shipment.
- A wave of pick tasks can be created for orders, based on distribution route.
- Tasks can be limited to a maximum volume.
- Replenishment waves can be used to ensure sufficient inventory of fast-moving items in a given warehouse.
- Order-based replenishment waves are governed by stock level strategies, turnover strategies, storage area and more.
- Hot replenishment – instantaneous replenishment from a "next in line" storage bin, activated as soon as employees are confronted with an empty bin while performing a pick task.
Receiving & Put-Away
- Deliveries received at the docks are checked against the corresponding goods receiving voucher (GRV); this can be an Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN) or any other document covering the shipment.
- Parallelization tasks are linked to corresponding line items in the GRV.
- Actual received quantities are compared to planned quantities in an automated report.
- Return notices are produced automatically for GRVs that include returned parts.
- Put-away tasks can be generated by part, part family, storage area, turnover or number of different SKU's in the same location.
- Dual units of measure (tasks can specify an exact weight or a number of crates).
- Upstream/downstream traceability of serialized parts from receipt through put away, subsequent warehouse transfers, picking and eventual delivery.
- Lot genealogy keeps track of lot components and where they are used. Lot attributes are maintained when lots are split, merged or transferred within the organization.
- Support for mobile devices, barcode labeling and RFID
