We have built an enterprise resource planning application that is feature rich and flexible to our customer's needs.
Based on customer feedback, we have been continually improving our ERP software, PM Warehousing, for over 15 years. PM Warehousing can be run in-house, cloud based, or as SaaS and is particularly suited to multi-location manufacturing and warehousing management. The system architecture is modular in design to allow users to build a solution tailored to their requirements and budgets.
There are extensive links to most financial ledgers to allow the user to retain their existing back office systems and ensure data integrity of customer and supplier details.
PM Warehousing has been developed in Microsoft .Net Framework with an SQL server database. Maximum efficiency and ease of operation is achieved using current technology:
The system is modular to allow flexibility for a user to select the applications specific to their requirements and their budget. Typically just the stock and goods-in applications may be used to solve a problem with the time taken to get goods into stock and the control of stock quantities in a small warehouse.
Conversely, the problem may be to control many thousands of movements over multiple warehouse sites with full traceability and pallet tracking.
The systems can be readily customised to provide user specific terms for applications and data input fields.
The warehouse module allows for the movement of stock and control of stock levels. The key elements to this module are:
The Label Production module allows for the production of GTIN compliant labels for all stock items in the PM Warehouse system.The label production module also controls the issue of unique SSCC Pallet ID’s and also the allocation of unique batch number. The key elements of the module are:
The transport module allows for the picking and routing of orders by the transport department. The key elements are:
PM IT Systems have developed a module that sits on any mobile device running Microsoft mobile i.e. the Intermec PDA range. The key element to these is that they provide the real time movements of the pallets.
In most warehousing environments each loader/fork lifttruck driver will be equipped with one of these. The Advantages are:
The stock taking module allows for either a full warehouse stock take to be performed or for a perpetual stock take procedure to be set up. The stock taking module allows for the confirmation of pallet id’s in the warehouse, highlighting any differences in the count, and displaying the SSCC’s that require action.
The key features for this module are that all stock or one product in a warehouse can be selected, selection of one location or part location in a warehouse, report Showing SSCC identifiers picked up by the snap shot but not counted, report Showing Counted SSCC identifiers that were not included in the snap shot.
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. The main purpose of using RFID chips in a logistical scenario is for tracking and identification. The technology uses radio waves in order to communicate data wirelessly, either over a short distance using magnetic fields, or over long distances when connected to a power source. Unlike barcodes, RFID chips don't need to be within the line of sight of the reader, this means that they can be embedded into a tracked object such as a pallet.
By scanning the goods as they enter each stage, RFID chips provide the ability to track goods as they go through manufacturing processes and even through delivery networks. This provides more organisation and control over internal processes and also provides better traceability of goods. This system can be achieved with embedded RFID chips that pass through checkpoints, which then tell an internal system that they have entered the next stage of development or transportation.
