The WCS main screen is a data-oriented view of warehouse operations. Users can view the flow of individual parcels through each subsystem, interactions between FastTrak and the host system, and transactions involving automated and computer-aided processes.
Users can access configuration, diagnostic, and reporting tools from the drop down menus on the main screen.
Using the buttons on the bottom of the main screen, users can start, stop, and pause subsystems with the click of a mouse. The status of each subsystem is displayed using a three-color code. Underneath the buttons are real-time performance statistics.
Each action performed by the automation system upon a container (parcel, tote, package, pallet, etc...) is recorded. Actions might include transfer of a container into a pick zone or sorting of a package to a shipping lane. The unique identification of the container, specific location of the action, action detail, time stamp, and process duration are displayed on screen for routine monitoring. This data is also recorded for subsequent reporting and auditing.
Radio frequency scan and voice transactions, as well as pick/put-to-light transactions are recorded. The data describing each transaction is available on screen for routine monitoring and is also recorded for subsequent reporting and auditing.
Any automation process or transactional error that results in exception handling by a machine or an operator is recorded. The exception data is displayed on screen to help resolve specific exceptions. In addition, the on-screen data is used as an aid for identifying trends that represent recurring system performance or data problems.
Users can configure key operational characteristics including timeouts, error count thresholds, and heartbeat intervals.
FastTrak is able to connect to any ERP/WMS host operating on any platform. This powerful connection features configurable source and destination endpoints using TCP/IP sockets, FTP, shared tables, and remote function calls.
Custom notification levels alert users about system events and errors. Messages with configurable wording and multilingual support are available when processes are completed, started, or stopped; errors occur. Notifications are browser based and accessible remotely by any computer or mobile device with internet connectivity.
