Soon the second phase having an area of 6,800 m2 was commissioned in addition to the 10,200-m2 complex already in operation to increase the total space available for cargo storage on five- and six-layer racks to 22,000 pallet places.
Takeover operations were not automated on the basis of radio terminals. Information was entered manually, and this consumed a lot of working time for many operators. There were difficulties with stock-taking.
System support was outsourced to the company that had done the rollout.
The company analyzed all the WMS’s available in the Russian market, their functionalities, and information on suppliers. Based on the findings, Distribution Center chose Logistic Vision Suite offered by ant Technologies.
In order to limit the project scope and minimize the implementation time, WMS was set up on the basis of requirements of the confectionery handling process, because the warehouse’s largest client was a confectionery distributor.
The highlight of this project was that Distribution Center needed to switch from one WMS to another without discontinuing its operations.
The flexible architecture of Logistic Vision Suite and the high professional level of ant Technologies’ technicians made it possible to roll out the system within a very short time. The settings in existing equipment (data collection terminals, label printers, head-end equipment and wireless infrastructure of different makes) were adapted to the new system so as to be able to be used simultaneously with the old WMS. The resetting allowed Distribution Center to switch to the new system while retaining much of its previous investment.
In addition to satisfying the basic warehouse management requirements (takeover, storage, picking, and dispatch), we activated a broad range of logistic functions:
Distribution Center’s personnel was trained in ant Technologies’ Training & Consulting Center. Under the contract, ant Technologies will also provide maintenance services.
Logistic Vision Suite has been operated in the warehouse since July 2007. The company is building the second warehouse, which is scheduled soon to be launched under the management of Logistic Vision Suite. Besides, the third warehouse is being considered.
The new multifunctional toolset of Logistic Vision Suite allows
Following the training program, the warehouse staff successfully operates the new WMS. The company has retained its previous investments by readjusting the existing bar code equipment to the new system.
Vladimir Brylkin, Development Director at Distribution Center:
“Logistic Vision Suite has enabled us to completely automate our warehouse complex by successfully resolving all current problems related to goods handling management. We have been also convinced that the system possesses a large potential and its deployment opens up some great opportunities in terms of further scaling up and upgrading the warehousing functionality in line with the growth of our business and the launch of new services offered to our customers. All those factors enable us to focus more on expanding our operations while preserving our earlier software investments.”
