Package SB | Small Business Easy-to-use, safe and compact – the software solution for small and medium-sized enterprises

The Small Business Package – the easy to handle, practical and fast entry into the PC-supported stock management environment provided by Kardex. The package for small and mediumsized enterprises has been designed for stand-alone installations controlling 1-2 units. Our standard starter package includes an extensive array of modules for the manage­ment of material, ­storage ­location and space, users and bins. In addition to ­reporting functionalities, barcode eva­luation and functions ­required for manual operation mode the package comprises easy-to-use ­s upplement management, ­d ynamic pick and put lists, as well as ­tracking and logging of all transactions inside your warehouse. All machines are linked via Ethernet or serial ports. Integration of an SQL-Express database is provided. Page 4

Material management Material management allows you to add, edit and delete material and material­relevant data. A material may have individual properties, or belong to a family of ­materials, thus allowing material-­specific pick and put-strategies (FIFO or LIFO). ­Material management allows allocation of different location types and material ­storage without specification of quantities. Bin management Storage locations are represented by bins. A bin can be imagined as a box or ­container having x/y and z dimensions thus ­defining the available space required for the material to be stored. Bins are available as standard bins, container bins or divisible bins. The layout of a bin can

be changed and adjusted any time. Manual operation Pick and put and return operations can also be performed without previous order placement. Power Pick Global contains a set of features to perform these un­planned transactions.


Package OP | Order Processor Safe, fast and optimized storage – The software for medium-sized warehouses

The Order Processor Package is de­ signed for the application in mediumsized warehouses featuring multiple units and multiple PC- workstations. In addition to the functions of the Small Business Package, the Order Processor Package provides the modules for ordercontrolled storage, optimized storage to reduce waiting times, double access, ­urgent delivery requests and the division of the warehouse into separate zones. It also offers cost center management, advanced reporting functions and report and label printing. Integration of dynamic user-definable data information fields for material and order data and an additional module featuring advanced administrative tasks.

Warehouse management functions Module offering extended administrative functions for warehouse managers. ­Whether to block materials, quantities or storagelocations – this module will give you full control over your warehouse. Order optimization Order optimization helps to optimize ­orders to enhance picking performance and storage space. In the wave picking mode, orders are picked concurrently throughout the entire warehouse. ­During pick and pass processing, on the other hand, an order is started in one picking group and then passed on to the next group.

Tray access optimization User-friendly method of reducing picking times by offering different tray presen­ tation options such as ‘Double access’ or ‘Double tray’*. (*available only in combination with Kardex Shuttle XP product series)

Double access: Tray presentation in the Kardex Shuttle access opening on two different levels. Double tray: The main tray remains on the extractor while the requested ­inner tray is unloaded from the main tray and brought into the access point. Once ­picking is ­finished, the tray is placed back into the dual tray and returned to its ­location in the Shuttle unit.

Package CP | Communicator Pro For ERP- and Warehouse Management Systems – Increasing performance and efficiency in your warehouse

Host-controlled Location Management Communicator Pro is the storage ­solution for all enterprises that already utilize an ERP or WMS system while striving to get even more performance from their dynamic storage systems from Kardex.

Page 6

The leading host system manages the actual storage locations for picking and putting operations. Material, inventories, strategies and all other storage activities in connection with location management are managed directly by the host system. During order processing, capacities are virtually activated in order to enable optimal access to shelves and storage locations and control the various storage devices in an optimized way. Other applications such as batching, optimized picking, pick/pack lights, task processing or asynchronous transactions can be utilized too.

Automatic Host Interface The automatic host interface is a general interface allowing the bidirectional transfer of material master data and order-related data with a host system. Data can be transferred by standard text files (ASCII text files), CSV or XML files, database tables (ODBC), or via specific host interfaces such as SAP IDOCs, BaaN - protocols or data loops. Online connection to host is possible. The following functions are available: Material master data synchronization with host, order synchronization with host, action result reporting (booking list export), inventory orders and kit list import.

Clients can only see and use their own materials, all other materials are hidden to a given clients. A material can be allocated to one or more clients.

Batching Increases throughput and picking performance. Batches can be created manually or automatically. Batches may be created just in time for a limited duration or they may be created and remain valid until all picking is performed.
