For an industry, processes such as production receiving, batch and validation control, warehouse occupancy and appropriate separation models are essential in obtaining logistic efficiency and quality of products and services delivered to customers. In addition, of course, to the information about the operation that the manager needs to receive in real-time to overcome daily challenges.
What WMS Rx does for your industry
With WMS Rx, decrease your order fulfillment effort.
Upon receiving production, the system suggests storage according to the specific characteristics of the product, determines the best way to store it, involves the right people for the work – according to the occupied sector and the equipment used – and directs the storage aiming at Picking. The main results are: increased productivity, decreased movements within the warehouse and greater inventory organization, including complying with external regulations.
Traceability is vital for batch-controlled products
As for batch and validation control, with WMS Rx, you can inspect and audit at the movements and balances of products in the warehouse any time. You will have the record of the entry and exit dates and may establish locks as the expiry date get closer or by identifying factory defects. And don’t be concerned about FIFO or FEFO, in WMS Rx you define the prioritization of the output.
Do you suffer from a lack of space in your warehouse?
Another benefit obtained with WMS Rx is decreased warehouse occupancy level through solutions such as Kanban (a process that rotates inventory by Picking), defragmentation, and cross-docking. Both in receiving production and in maintenance routines, WMS Rx always seeks the best use of space.
Have the right tools for the job
The separation of orders in the industry requires great flexibility of the management system, as exit orders may not follow a pattern, being sometimes predominant in large volumes (complete pallets for example), sometimes in closed boxes (own packaging) or even, as we usually see, with fractional fulfillment for small retailers. The important thing is that WMS Rx is ready to meet all these models and in a native solution way, always enhancing each of them.
How accurate is your inventory?
Inventory accuracy is the index that tells you how much your physical inventory is equal to your inventory in the system. And this information is essential both for the Purchasing/Production team – which seeks optimal inventory levels in the warehouse, after all, we are talking about invested capital of the company – as well as for the Sales team, because the disruption of orders can mean loss of a definitive customer, in addition to loss of the sale. Furthermore, inventory discrepancies lead to discrepancies in orders that go to the customer or even require rework, which is a major obstacle to meeting goals. With WMS Rx, you will have a set of inventory models ideal for both routine quality inspections and warehouse movement monitoring.
It’s true: what can’t be measured, can’t be improved
This is how WMS Rx was built and is always evolving. The manager needs to have the operation information literally in hand, such as KPIs and reports showing how things are going, and what needs to be improved. However, it is essential that the system also helps to avoid deviations that can be easily identified, such as possible delays and breaches in orders if there is no replenishment, among others. With WMS Rx, you will have a diversity of KPIs and reports, and not just that: rely on the system to warn you of risks through Notifications and Visual Management. Click here and find out more.
