Picking - Accurate and Efficient

Managing large volumes of customer and production orders can be difficult, complex, and even intimidating to some warehouse and production managers.

The ASCTrac® Order picking processes automate many of these complex processes using built-in, configurable picking processes.

You define the logic, from the simplest of picking parameters (single order, FIFO, pick path optimization) to more sophisticated functions like picking to mixed containers, pick batches/bulk, zone picking, multiple pickers per zone, pick-and-pass, assignments of pickers or not, and picking by hard or soft allocation.

Full Picking Solution:

The ASCTrac ® WMS base package includes the ability to manage all aspects of picking outbound orders. All picking functions within ASCTrac® WMS are system-directed, optimizing pick paths and usage of material handling equipment, FIFO-FEFO, expiration code dates, same lot groups; interleaving tasks such as cycle counts, replenishing pick locations, item/location consolidation, and emergency order picking, cross docking, etc. While these processes appear to be fairly straightforward from an operator's perspective, a number of processes take place within the ASCTrac® WMS Order Picking Module to present each picking requirement to the operator. These "behind the scenes" processes simply follow the rules you configure for each warehouse, picker, item, item category, location, zone, etc.

The ASCTrac® Picking Module supports picking and staging items for production, or issuing them directly to production lines. It supports forward picking for replenishment, and multi-layered KIT picking logic as well.

More than twenty-two years of features and proven results have been field proven in our picking processes.

Picking Workflow:

ASCTrac® WMS supports direct and staged loading processes. Operators can use wireless scanning computers to confirm that materials (skids, cases, or containers) are picked and loaded in sequence for the correct trailer (confirm shipment), providing real time data for shipping manifests and bill of lading creation. After loading is complete, Advance Ship Notice (ASN) details can be created and routed to your host system (or via a third-party EDI translator module). Additional reports about each trailer's contents and the number of orders within each trailer can be generated as well. "Product Withdrawal" reporting is also easy with ASCTrac's® WMS picking module.
