HK Systems Inc. has released version 9.0 of HKEMS, its warehouse control system (WCS). HKEMS controls and coordinates container sortation, storage, and movement within the facility and provides supervisory control for equipment. The software was developed specifically as an equipment and inventory management system for new and retrofitted applications, including automated storage/retrieval systems (AS/RS), automated guided vehicles (AGVs), conveyors, sortation systems, robotics, and more.
HKEMS 9.0 offers a new user interface that includes a navigation bar and both tabbed views to provide quick access to all screens and simultaneous visibility to multiple screens. Commands are easy to identify, access, and execute, and user-defined filters can be saved to make them available from any workstation.
A real-time graphical display shows load movement, equipment status, and visual notification of situations requiring human intervention. The software also has the ability to pull in live video from ethernet-enabled cameras that monitor the system. An alert feature, customizable by format, schedule, and user role, allows system alarms to be sent to an e-mail address, including a mobile phone.
HKEMS also offers ClickOnce technology that makes deploying and running the application as easy as clicking a link in a Web page. Once deployed, the application automatically updates every time it is run and does not require separate installation of any third-party products.
