GRSI enhances FastTrak 3.0 warehouse execution suite
The FastTrak WES is composed of four modules that work together in various combinations. The modules include a host interface (HI), warehouse control system (WCS), order management system (OMS), and packaging integration (PI) system.
HI facilitates communication between the FastTrak WES and enterprise software (ERP) or a warehouse management system (WMS). It is a single-point connection that simplifies design, is extremely fast, and lends itself to better support.
WCS coordinates, controls, automates, and monitors material handling equipment and fulfillment methods. This includes support for conveyor sorting and routing; automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS); print and apply; in-motion manifesting; wireless, voice, and laser picking; pick/put-to-light; and RFID.
OMS organizes orders for efficient and accurate picking by combining both operator and automation-based fulfillment methods. Features, such as waving, batching, and cartonization, are standard mechanisms used to optimize fulfillment processing. OMS has a full range of inventory management tools to control putaway, storage, and pick location replenishment.
PI fully automates packaging operations such as automated packaging, literature and pack list insertion, sealing, weighing, labeling, and in-motion manifesting. This molds all last-100-feet (L1F) operations into a single unified process.
