Dematic has released the latest version of its Director IT suite of software that is designed to optimize the use of Dematic's material handling equipment and related operations. Director IT is an integrated, modular, and scalable suite of software and controls for managing and optimizing material and information flow in the warehouse, production facility, or distribution center. Seamless integration to upper-level WMS and ERP systems provides strategic control over the entire warehouse.
The Director IT suite brings a number of elements together under a single screen. It takes the software components required for today's sophisticated material handling solutions and combines them with Dematic's conveying, sorting, and automatic storage and retrieval systems, as well as voice- and light-based picking products. This results in maximized throughput and efficiency within a facility.
The Dematic Director IT suite consists of a number of functional modules: SortDirector, PickDirector, StagingDirector, System Manager, and Performance Manager. SortDirector optimizes carton routing and sorting for strategic control of these processes. PickDirector is the engine behind Dematic's voice-directed and light-picking order fulfillment. In facilities that use both lights and voice picking in conjunction with material handling automation, PickDirector coordinates order fulfillment needs with SortDirector to improve order efficiency and accuracy.
The StagingDirector module controls and optimizes the material flow across unit load transport and automated storage technologies. System Manager displays a graphical representation showing an entire material handling system and provides users with centralized access to real-time system status and monitoring information. Color-coded conveyor and equipment layouts show the real-time running status of all equipment and related control cabinets and IT systems. With integrated Web cameras, product manuals, bills of materials, and trouble-shooting guides, System Manager makes it easier to maintain a system. And Performance Manager is a business intelligence tool to record and report on key performance indicators (KPIs) within a user's operations. The software displays the performance measurements in a user-configurable graphical dashboard.
The entire Director suite is integrated using shared common components. It is accessible using a Web-based browser and a single login.
