BFC Dakota Warehouse Management 

The BFC Dakota Warehouse Management system includes also advanced inventory optimization and quality management.

Regarding quality management, BFC Dakota WMS has the following main features:

  • When items are received, all required FDA measurements (PH, temperature, humidity, etc) are captured and stored in BFC Dakota WMA

  • When a measurement is beyond a limit, a notification scripts is triggered which prevents shipment of that item to the customer

  • Items that are imported from other countries may be assigned to an import slot, and checked for FDA standards before release for shipment to the customer

  • At receipt of purchased items, items are stored in the right slot (bin or row, level and column)

  • At pick up of items to fulfill customer orders, voice pick helps the puller to go to the right slot. No mispicks.

An optional application is TruckBuilder which guides the truck loader in loading his/her truck optimally such that items to be delivered last on his/her trip are at the front of the trailer. 

All this gets the customer happy since the customer will get the right products in the right quantities at the right time.
