WIRELESS WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT & BARCODING
Enterprise Hub’s warehouse management functionality is designed for Android devices and barcode enabled. Enterprise Hub supports barcode printing on forms such as pick tickets, packing slips, and work orders, and can print labels for products, locations, and pallet ID’s or license plates. In addition to on demand barcode printing, all major warehouse management transactions can be performed directly using handheld RF-enabled barcode scanners. When using scanning technology, Enterprise Hub can perform task interleaving, thus enabling warehouse efficiencies by directing the next highest priority task to warehouse personnel automatically. All activities are time stamped to allow for further warehouse productivity evaluation.
Enterprise Hub includes complete, state-of-the-art warehouse management functionality that supports standard processes such as receiving, putaway, picking, replenishment, and shipping. The warehouse management functionality manages both single and multi-warehouse operations with transactions being performed both by keyboard and handheld and forklift-mounted RF-enabled barcode scanning devices. The warehouse management functionality is fully-integrated with the complete Enterprise Hub suite, including purchasing, manufacturing, inventory, and financial management to provide a complete end-to-end solution for manufacturing and distribution organizations.
While optimized picking can be performed with traditional paper-based processes, greater productivity can be derived through Enterprise Hub’s directed picking and paperless task-interleaving processes. Enterprise Hub manages and tracks the complete flow of material through the entire organization, from receipt and putaway of material, through production and kitting, and eventual picking, packing, and shipping to customers with complete lot traceability and serialization tracking. Enterprise Hub also automates the management of other warehouse operations such as physical and cycle counts, vendor returns, license plating, and labor allocation and optimization
Enterprise Hub software provides the tools necessary for efficient and productive manufacturing and distribution operations. With Enterprise Hub, organizations can improve their inventory accuracy, inventory turns, and customer service.
Enterprise Hub’s warehouse management functionality supports the recording of incoming material receipts via standard keyboard entry and Android-enabled barcode scanners. Incoming receipts can be placed into segregated inspection locations, directly into active inventory, or in cross-docking locations. In addition, product labels can be applied when such labeling has not already been included by the supplier.
For those items requiring inspection, received material can be immediately placed on hold and applicable QC personnel alerted for further action. When lot or serial tracked items are received, Enterprise Hub enforces the recording of lot and serial data at the point of receiving. Enterprise Hub can then automatically generate applicable lot and serial number labels.
The Enterprise Hub business software suite can perform inventory putaway in a variety of methods including fully directed, straight to stock, or dock to stock. At the time of putaway, bar code labels or license plates can be printed and applied to the product. As with other Enterprise Hub’s warehouse management operations, these transactions can be performed using a keyboard or a Android-enabled barcode scanner. Enterprise Hub offers a flexible inventory putaway solutions tailored to each manufacturer’s or distributor’s warehouse requirements.
The Enterprise Hub system supports a variety of picking methods including pick by order, cart picking, zone picking, wave picking, and pick queue processing. Enterprise Hub enables manufacturers and distributors to have complete control over picking processes with flexible flexible picking rules definition and selection criteria.
Advanced Inventory Planning
Enterprise Hub business management software supports fully-integrated processes for single and multi-facility manufacturing and distribution organizations. The planning process begins with customer demand, which is comprised of sales orders and forecasts.
Manufacturers can run the material requirements planning (MRP) process which generates a series of purchase requisitions and tentative production schedules. Buyers and material planners can review the purchase requisitions to generate purchase orders and intercompany transfers, while manufacturing planners can review the tentative production schedules to generate final production schedules.
Distributors can run the distribution requirements planning (DRP) process which generates purchase requisitions to be reviewed and converted into purchase orders and intercompany transfers. For multi-facility organizations, Enterprise Hub’s DRP process can be used for centralized purchasing, facility-based purchasing, or as a combination of these methodologies.
Both the DRP and MRP processes enable distributors and manufacturers to establish realistic and achievable material and manufacturing plans to readily meet customer demand, improve customer service, decrease material and operational costs, and drive business profitability.
Forecasting (Coming Soon)
Enterprise Hub includes a sophisticated demand and sales forecasting software solution. Manufacturing and distribution organizations can manage an infinite number of forecasts in Enterprise Hub, which can be entered manually or automatically generated
through a series of algorithms to determine anticipated future demand on a product-by-product basis. Once created, forecasts are used as inputs to Enterprise Hub’s material requirements planning (MRP) and distribution requirements planning (DRP) processes.
A variety of different data dimensions are available for sales and demand forecasting. These include break-outs of data by:
In addition, each individual forecast can be generated using a different date range of historical information. Enterprise Hub’s sales forecasting software functionality is capable of utilizing more recent sales trends rather than long term trends.
Each time a forecast is generated, Enterprise Hub runs a series of statistical forecasting algorithms and determines which of the various demand and sales forecasting methods represents the best fit to the historical data. It then chooses this forecasting technique to project future demand. As a result, a number of different forecasting techniques may be utilized in a given forecast since the best forecasting technique is chosen for each product, customer, time period, and geographical data combination.
Enterprise Hub’s Shipping Module will help you reduce costs and automate your shipping processes with quick carrier cost and service comparisons, shipping label and document printing and delivery tracking.
Ship-IT allows you to load and compare multiple carriers on a single system including:
Enterprise Hub has large library of LTL carriers, as well as tools to manage your shipping rules, customer shipping preferences. Enterprise Hub also improves accuracy by automating the entire process – from carrier selection to document printing – in seconds.
