Consumer spending trends suggest this holiday season for retailers and logistics companies will drive an improvement of 15% year-over-year. Hytrol was recently featured in Robotics and Automation News, authored by manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler.
Bill Maple, Director of Software Solutions at Hytrol, shared, “Customers demand product at quicker and quicker speeds, and a warehouse control systems helps to deliver those products at the pace needed by creating a more flexible operation that will allow greater speed and efficiency. A WCS provides operational visibility by reporting where products are located as well as the efficiency of processes.” In a situation where a truck is being loaded from a shipping sorter, a WCS communicates the number of cartons shipped to each route and the number of times products were recirculated due to the downstream conveyor being full. A WCS provides item-by-item tracking as product flow through the warehouse facility is measured, reported, and managed.
Automation via warehouse control systems is critical because it adapts to changing business requirements. Whether a quick change in business rules or significant growth in order fulfillment, software must integrate with existing ERP (enterprise resource planning) or WMS (warehouse management systems). WCS automation integrates business rules allowing tasked to be performed as needed and is adaptability of seasonality and future growth.
