Sortation & Routing Software

CCS (Conveyor Control System)

Sortation Routing Software (SRS ©) is a Windows-based software interface designed to integrate plant-floor automation with order fulfillment automation. Data collected from plant floor components such as PLCs, barcode scanners, in-motion scales and dimensioners is coordinated with data provided by customer order fulfillment software to control material handling systems. Whether running from a dedicated, plant floor based PC or company secure server, the web-based CCS@ application provides local or remote graphical interface to production data and system functionality.

Overview

SRS© provides a single access point to allow:

  • Interface with virtually any of the industry leading warehouse Management System (WMS) packages. Real time data shared between CCS and WMS is maintained in a database for control and display:

o Shipping Label information

o Zone routing destination(s)

o Packaging Station destination

o Shipping destination

o Weight tolerances

o Manifesting

o Carrier Information

  • Interface to plant floor automation. Real time data collected from the plant floor is maintained in the database for control and display:

o Bar Code data

o RFID data

o Scale data

o Dimensioner data

o Material Handling System controllers (such as PLCs)

  • Interface to material handling equipment. Real time data from WMS and the plant floor are coordinated to control and monitor:

o Picking systems

o Zone Routing systems

o High Speed Combiners

o High Speed Sortation Systems

o Print and Apply Applicators

o Print and Insert equipment
