A scalable logistics software platform, Dematic WES controls and synchronises the picking workflows. As a unified, fully integrated software solution, it allows users to dynamically manage the picking processes, inventory, labour, and material handling automation in real time.
Dematic WES includes a standard interface for the major enterprise resource planning (ERP) and warehouse management system (WMS) brands, as well as the Dematic Software WMS. The WES supports bidirectional communications and both synchronous and asynchronous message processing.
The Dematic WES uses on-demand processing to increase operational effectiveness and synchronise workflows in real time. With a revolving queue of orders, it pulls work to resources and processes orders on-demand, continuously, and dynamically (instead of in static waves).
Every time an order is completed in a functional area or workstation, a new order can be activated for processing. On-demand processing evaluates each order immediately upon receipt and calculates the urgency level for real-time prioritisation, planning, and execution. Based on priority and resource availability, it then adds the next best order to execute.
