Warehouse Management

Nextenís Warehouse Management System, eCache, is designed based on a strategic business intelligence application tightly integrated with our eShop product line and your scheduling system. This integration translates warehouse performance objectives into a coherent set of measures. These measures enable identification and implementation of changes to warehouse processes for maximum effectiveness. It also will serve as a Decision Support System tool to provide on-line information for "what -if analysis" and dynamic resource allocation. eCache will support a variety of modes of manufacturing with the ability to combine different modes within the same company such as Make-to-Order, Make-to-Contract, Make-to-Stock, Configure-to-Order, Assemble-to-Order, JIT and Kanban.

eCache is comprised of two modules:

  1. ePoise is a series of software modules for integrated control of carousels, AS/RS, conveyors, and other automated equipment linked on-line to eCache.

  2. rfTrak will use radio frequency (RF) and user-friendly interface with ERP systems to provide remote real-time access to the plant's inventory. Utilization of bar code labels provides a visible identifier for each component from the time that it is received until it reaches the finished-goods stockroom. eCache allows users to track the part's movement by allowing confirmation of the data before it is transmitted to the host.
