The Savanna.NET® Warehouse Management System Functionality

The Savanna.NET® WES Warehouse Management System (WMS) controls the movement, storage and retrieval of materials within a warehouse. The core WMS features encompass areas such as: inventory management, lot or batch tracking, order fulfillment and product movement/traceability.

Savanna.NET® WMS functions perform the administrative tasks associated to inventory within a warehouse, such as managing product and associated inventory turns, lifecycle and placement. Savanna.NET® WMS functions minimize cost and fulfillment times through the management of warehouse inventory, space, equipment and people. 

Savanna.NET® is comprised of sophisticated algorithms that move your product

Order Processing

  • Manage inventory transfers between physically separate locations
  • Manage inbound purchase orders and customer returns
  • Blind receiving
  • Directed and non-directed put-away to automation or conventional locations
  • Handheld, fork truck mounted and/or desktop receiving

Item/SKU and Inventory Management

  • Management of all items/SKUs and lots within the system.
  • Data is storage for each item/SKU in the system.
  • Operators can easily create a profile for each SKU, entering a series of default data per SKU (e.g. quantity per pallet, pallet type, FIFO window, etc.).
  • Inventory may also be managed via a flexible lot tracking system. The system supports client-driven lot IDs or a simple expiration date.
  • Storage and retrieval characteristics may be configured by lot and item and/or by item category, providing more control over storage patterns.
  • Inventory can also be stored in various units of measure (UOM). Each UOM is further defined by weight and/or quantity.
  • Inventory data may be entered manually or received electronically from a customer host system via a standard host interface.

Container Management

  • Support the management of multiple pallet types and dimensions.
  • Pallet management tracks individual pallet inventory.
  • Pallets are assigned a unique ID and data such as SKU, lot, product / expiration date, pallet location and pallet lock (if applicable). This information is associated to the pallet.
  • Operators have the option of locking pallets or placing them in “quarantine.” An expiration date may be entered for the pallet quarantine.
  • Flexible pallet configuration allows multiple items and lots (e.g. expiration or production date) to be stored on one pallet.
  • Provides management of all rack storage locations in the system, current space allocations, and management of item zoning for storage optimization.
  • Sophisticated storage algorithms to determine the best location and sophisticated retrieval algorithms to identify which product meets the required criteria for product selection.
  • Operator-initiated inventory comparisons to verify that data has been properly updated and ensure congruency between the PLC and the WMS.

Security/User Management

  • Provides various levels of access to the Savanna.NET®
  • Allows the warehouse manager to create user groups (roles) and assign a specific set of user rights to each group (role). User accounts are created and users are assigned to a particular user group (role). The user is limited to the rights associated with the user group (role).
  • Allows the warehouse manager to assign users to groups (roles) with full system access, very limited system access or a moderate level of access.
