FKI Logistex IoSystems introduces the Warehouse Optimizer warehouse control system, an industrial control software package that provides a configurable real-time control system for warehouse activities.
Warehouse Optimizer's benefits include its ability to relieve a customer host computer of managing a real-time material handling automation interface and its ability to maximize system throughput and performance using efficient pallet/case routing control. It provides statistical and diagnostic graphics/reports for maximum system uptime, recommends equipment maintenance based on run-time and/or maintenance schedules, and operates as a self-maintained unit.
This system also handles all the physical aspects of a warehouse or distribution center, including material handling equipment control, stock location mapping, interlocation movement control, interzone routing, allocation of stock to dispatches, order management, and dock door interface control, and provides for unlimited operator interface.
Warehouse Optimizer can control cranes, trucks, conveyors, and other equipment,using network, radio, or infrared communication links. It automatically routes containers between storage zones.
