and expected cartons.
We will review and possibly update quality check
settings of the origin sewing plant.
Cartons can be received in a standard area or
specialized area.
Received cartons can be tagged with a season code to
aid future rework.
Multiple receivers will scan cartons as they are
unloaded from the truck.
Scenario 1.1 continued
10



Some cartons will be sent for quality check because of vendor
profile settings.
Some cartons will be sent to forward pick locations because
they are immediately needed for picking.
Majority of the cartons will be staged for locating to storage
area.
Scenario 1.2: Blind Receiving
11




We will demonstrate receiving of cartons for which we have no
ASN.
User will need to enter SKU and pieces of each received carton.
DCMS will auto-generate shipment information.
Carton ticket are printed if needed
Process 2: Quality Check
12
 During receiving, Some cartons are moved for
quality check. We will use MAT module of DCMS to
perform quality check.


You will notice that if irregulars are identified during quality
check and carton will be marked for correction.
Cartons which successfully pass quality check are moved to
storage.
Put-away

DCMS supports multiple put-away methods.

Guided Put away - You can pre-determine locations to locate
inventory and system will guide locator to these locations.

Download Orders from ERP
16
 Orders are periodically downloaded to DCMS
system from ERP or entered using flat file received
from customer.
 DCMS supports EDI standards for downloading
orders.
 DCMS can also provide customized interface for
integrating with ERP.
Wave Management
17
 Allows you to search and select orders to ship and
allocate inventory to the orders. For this demo we
will pick order of customer Walmart.
 You will understand which UI options are
available to select an order.
 Search orders of Walmart in Pick Wave screen.
 Allocate inventory to these orders; this allows
picking process to trigger.
 Consolidate orders to reduce transportation
and shipping costs using EDI753-754
routing.
Guided Box Pick
18
 Guided picking process of DCMS guides pickers to
exact locations using hand held mobile computer to
pick inventory.
 Picker affixes UCC and CCL labels to the carton and
drops them at the QC station or conveyor belt.
 QC is performed and then cartons are moved to
dock.
Guided Pitching
19
 When the order being shipped is such that you can
pick full cartons from storage, cartons are created
from forward pick locations using piece picking
called Pitching in DCMS.
 DCMS uses best pick path algorithm to keep the
distance travelled the shortest.
 Half picked cartons are marked RED.
 Fully picked cartons can be sent for VAS if needed.
Conveyor Sortation
20
 After picking cartons are placed on a conveyor for
sortation.
 Cartons are sorted using pre-configured rules in
DCMS.
 During sortation some of the cartons are moved for
QC, based on quality check percentage set. Please visit
our site at http://eclsys.com/index.php/demovideos/ to see how conveyor sortation is performed.
BoxQc
21
 Cartons sent to QC station are checked for accuracy
by opening the carton and scanning each piece.
 Boxes which pass QC are sent back to QC station.
 Boxes which fail are corrected and then sent back to
shipping dock.
Pallet Sortation
22
 Cartons are palletized for shipping in this process.
 If you do not use conveyor sortation in your warehouse this
process becomes primary sortation method.
 This process creates pallet while making sure that cartons
being put on pallet follow the routing rules. For example, two
cartons of same customer will not be mixed if their destination
is not same. DCMS provides multiple configurations to
support all business scenarios.
 After pallets are assembled, they are stored in dock locations
and await shipping.
Appointment Scheduling
23
 Appointments can be scheduled in DCMS with the
carrier over phone, e-mail or fax.
 Reduces the risk of delays, lost productivity and
chargebacks.
 Option to let carriers and suppliers use web-based
interface to self-schedule shipments is planned.
 Trucker is provided a appointment number which he
can quote upon arrival in the warehouse/DC.
Guided Truck Loading
24
 As trucker arrives to pick the shipment, he quotes
appointment number and shipping department
quickly loads the shipment.


Guided truck loading guides you to pick these pallets and
ensures that correct pallets are loaded to truck.
Loaders enter the appointment number in ScanToTruck
screen. ScanToTruck guides them to the exact location where
pallet has been kept.

Shipping is the last process in DC operations. Pallet loaded to
the truck are ready to be dispatched.

All required shipping documents like bill of lading, international
invoice, packing slips are automatically printed by system.
Use guided pickup and truck loading to reduce the chances of
sending wrong shipments.
If you use appointment scheduling and guided truck loading

As orders are shipped, DCMS automatically uploads the shipping
details to the host ERP.
ERP processes this information for billing and accounting
purposes.
User management in DCMS
29
 DCMS has role based access control for restricting
system access to authorized users. Roles are created for
various job functions. Each user can be assigned single or
multiple roles depending upon the business need.
 For this demo we will create users, John a supervisor and
Alex an operator.
 User Alex will be created during demo and he will be a
Receiving operator. User John has been pre-created and
will do every operation. It will also be demonstrated that
operator level user Alex is not able to change advanced
DCMS configurations.
