HOLLAND, MICHIGAN – A recent issue Warehouse-Management.net recently reported that warehouse management systems are critical tools to deliver efficient and lean material distribution operation systems. There are few warehouses that actually experience 99.9 percent inventory accuracy, and as many as 35 percent can drive productivity improvements with an automated environment. Egemin is one provider set to extend such benefits to warehouses.
Egemin is a global organization and leading manufacturer of AGV’s and Warehouse Management Systems. All AGV technologies including design, software and support are developed and owned by Egemin and are being used by many Fortune 500 companies.
Mark Stevenson, vice president for Egemin shared in a statement that Warehouse Management systems must link the logistic environment and equipment available in the warehouse and consists of two main modules. Warehouse Management Systems must be specifically designed to work with all forms of automation, as well as forklift truck fleets.
Stevenson has worked with many of the world’s largest corporations, as well as holds a patent as co-inventor of ATL technology. He is considered one of the prominent authorities and experts on design and application of automated trailer loading systems and warehousing automation with automatic guided vehicles.
Automated guided vehicles are the ideal solution for the transport of end-of-line equipment to shipping in distribution centers. WMS solutions are very comprehensive and allow many add on elements that reap the benefits of AGV’s. Such elements consist of track and tracking module, statistical KPI management reporting, trailer patterning, yard management, equipment alarm management, warehouse control systems and satellite storage.
Supported storage methods must be compatible with all basic storage methods, but also support the more complex methods, as well. Stevenson noted that Warehouse Control Systems integrate all automated equipment in a warehouse into one well-oiled and efficient transport system.
