Achieve Operational Excellence With Aptean WMS Objective Edition

Your logistics operation is a critical link in your production process, if there’s a problem, your whole plant is affected immediately. Today, the number of logistical movements within warehouses is increasing rapidly, making it difficult to track and trace materials – meanwhile, there’s increasing demand for full track and trace capability. On top of this, warehousing costs are increasing, creating pressure to use warehouse space as efficiently as possible. These are only a few of the many challenges we face today. To optimise logistics processes, many look to Just-In-Time (JIT) / Just-In-Sequence (JIS) methodologies, but to do this your production and warehouse management teams must be aligned. Being able to achieve this can differentiate your business from the competition and make you one step closer to operational excellence. Aptean WMS Objective Edition can streamline your logistics process from receiving raw materials to picking and shipping and even optimise value added services like kitting and repacking.

Optimising warehouse management Gain full control and visibility of your warehouse with Aptean WMS Objective Edition. With our WMS, you can define item characteristics such as volume, weight, classification, pick frequency, product group and so on and our flexible algorithms for put-away, allocation and replenishment will optimise the use of your warehouse space while minimising run times and driving times. In addition, our standard real-time warehouse capacity calculator will provide you an accurate image of how full your warehouse, zones and locations are at any time you need. Aptean WMS includes real-time staff management tools giving you visibility into shopfloor activity by helping you confirm and verify tasks to ensure accuracy of work. We also track all incoming and outgoing goods with their location details by using barcodes ensuring the right item is in the right place. In addition, our cycle count function enables you to maintain the correct inventory levels. For example, if the stock at a particular pick location drops below a certain level, our WMS will automatically create a replenishment order. Aptean WMS Objective Edition can output system-directed tasks based on priority, location and availability of people and resources, skillsets and authorisations. Our WMS optimises your picking process by considering inbound and outgoing movements, driving times and minimises unnecessary movement of empty fork-lift trucks. Warehouse managers can view, in real-time, an overview of tasks in the various work zones around the facility. Key metrics are displayed on our intuitive task screen displays, allowing you act quickly as needed. Our comprehensive reporting and analysis options can give you visibility into key KPIs in terms of volumes processed, staff efficiency, correct deliveries and article pick frequency.
