“The ability to recover from faults quickly is imperative for automated facilities. Firefly greatly reduces the time needed to identify and recover from issues and increases efficiency throughout the facility.” - Dave Williams, VP of Technology Solutions
Visualizing and managing information is a valuable skill that is crucial in today’s fast-paced world of automation. Laborers and DC management are pushed to discover the most effective means of receiving, storing, picking, and shipping their items to satisfy the expectations of their customers.
Westfalia’s Savanna.NET® WES Suite includes the Firefly fault recovery and visualization tool; providing a three-dimensional, augmented picture of the warehouse, inventory, and automated systems which allows users to get a complete picture of the warehouse, and swiftly recover from any faults that may arise. Firefly translates screen interactions with back-end commands using an interactive, drag-and-drop user interface, greatly simplifying the fault recovery process.
This application enables remote fault recovery as well as inventory viewing and management from any location. Additionally, Firefly provides a unique, real-time flow of pallets that shows the movement of inventory throughout the facility using different colored arrows and 3D renderings of the conveyors and automated storage/retrieval systems (AS/RS). The 3D view is fully interactive, allowing the user to drag and drop different pallets and recover from faults with a mouse click or a touch of the screen.
Savanna.NET’s®Firefly can operate on any tablet, smartphone, or other devices with an Android, Windows, or iOS operating system. Running on almost any device allows businesses to monitor and manage their inventory from anywhere in the world.
It has been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words” and when it comes to automation, Firefly can make it a reality.
