Time and resource delays in the yard can reduce productivity, affect customer satisfaction, and increase overall costs for the yard and warehouse. To meet the challenges of yard management, Catalyst has launched a drag-and-drop scheduling solution for the SAP Yard Management System (YMS). This solution simplifies the process of yard management and delivers more effective administration, visibility, and control for yard managers. In a sense, it extends warehouse management outside the physical walls of the warehouse to the yard.
With Catalyst's new drag-and-drop scheduling solution, the operator can allocate specific trailers to precise docks by dragging an icon representing the trailer to the desired docking area. This allows the operator to instantly see which trailers are waiting to be allocated and which docking areas are available. Through integration with scheduling systems and advance shipping notifications, operators know in advance what is on incoming trailers. That allows operators to save time and money by allocating resources in an appropriate and efficient manner.
The solution provides a real-time, threedimensional view of the entire yard. By viewing easy-to-read color-coded graphs, yard managers can survey and evaluate all situations, allowing them to make proactive and critical management decisions directly.
