Standard Features of Peacocks IMS
Orders are imported from the ERP system and can be processed by entering the order number or selecting it from a list. The IMS system will display the next available location to pick the pallet against the corresponding order number.
The Put-away function is used to move the received goods into the storage locations. The system can determine the best available location based on defined business rules.
The Transfer function is used to move pallets from one location to another. Movement records can be generated in the IMS to direct the operator.
With live and accurate inventory tracking the IMS system can notify when stock items are running low on a pre-determined minimum stock level, or if the items have run out for easy replenishment.
The Stocktake function is used to create new stocktakes, assign locations to operators and lock locations that contain discrepancies. You can re-count stock and confirm or update changes.
The Rework function provides additional pallet and item management functions including write off of a pallet or carton, merging two or more pallets and the re-printing of a pallet label.
The order to be processed can be selected by entering the order number or selecting it from a list. The IMS will display the next available location to get the pallet for the selected order number.
Packing & Shipping
The Shipping function prompts for the registration of truck shipments, a container number and the destination if pallets are placed into a container. Every pallet is scanned as it is placed on the truck or into the container with a summary for the loaded and remaining pallets.
