Dematic, a supplier of logistics systems, has released PickDirector 3.6, a new extended version of the order fulfillment software for distribution and warehousing operations. PickDirector software is a warehouse control system that manages order fulfillment activities in piece- or case-pick applications using RF, light displays, or voice technologies. PickDirector software is often configured to operate in conjunction with picking carts or smart conveyor networks and supports "pick" or "put" applications.
With version 3.6, PickDirector can now work with "put walls" and order-packing work cells. Version 3.6 also drives hybrid fulfillment operations such as indexing or constant-pace conveyor systems. Furthermore, the new release also enables store-friendly pick sequence applications, direct-store delivery, and delivery-route order assembly. PickDirector 3.6 optimizes and supports all types of warehouse environments from nonautomated operations where no racking or location codes exist to automated/mechanized system configurations.
Like previous versions, PickDirector 3.6 supports order tracking, zone balancing, "golden zone" analysis, quality control, label printing, layer picking, and stock-keeping unit (SKU) descriptions (for voice applications) as well as managing out of stocks, replenishment, and cycle counting. It also provides operational data such as real-time reporting of worker productivity/current assignments/utilization and operational statistics such as percentage of orders complete.
