SSI SCHAEFER introduces the latest upgrade for WAMAS, a warehouse management software (WMS) suite. The new upgrade is the latest of in a series of development upgrades designed to optimize order fulfillment and labor management. This latest version of WAMAS, enables the utmost efficiencies in both manual and fully automated warehouses.
“WAMAS manages the entire intralogistics material flow as well as introduces waveless fulfillment,” stated Lennard Koppelmann, vice president of IT solutions for SSI Schaefer Systems International. “With WAMAS, orders are continually reviewed and optimized for easy fulfillment, but with an additional a twist. By using proprietary dynamic algorithms that work with sales forecasts, historic picking rates, and current processing power, WAMAS can optimize and group orders as efficiently as possible and release them for picking. The upgrade also allows interleaving of high priority orders too, which is especially important when it comes to loyalty programs or next day shipping,” continued Koppelmann.
Traditional WMS solutions work is planned in advance using existing wave planning algorithms with little to no ability to respond to last minute changes. This traditional wave planning causes peaks and lulls or a stop-and-go format with labor. WAMAS optimized fulfillment creates a smooth run time throughout the entire day, which maximizes profit and saves on labor costs. Executives and operation managers have complete visibility in real-time across multiple facilities. This real-time reporting offers insights and provides data analysis to support optimization efforts and transparency when managing everyday logistic demands.
SSI SCHAEFER unveils the new upgraded WMS solution during this year’s ProMat exhibition starting on April 3rd in Chicago, IL.
