Solvo. WMS System Architecture The system is built on client-server architecture, and contains the following major components: DBMS, Core, Interface, Gateway. DBMS The system database is used for data storage. This system is compatible with the extremely low-cost Oracle Standard Edition One DBMS. SYSTEM CORE System core, based on Unix (Linux) kernel. This is the core of Solvo. WMS, the powerhouse behind all data management. INTERFACE System user interfaces provide graphical representation of data on desktop computers (running on either Windows or Unix OS) and wireless terminal interfaces. GATEWAY Middleware is an interface module, enabling smooth interaction between the Enterprise Resource Planning software and Solvo. WMS. It comprises two parts, which have been developed jointly by Solvo and the ERP suppliers.
Technologies The Solvo. WMS is based on 3 -tier model. The database is used to store data. Cooperative processes implement business logics. And the GUI client application represents data to the user. Operating systems Databases § Server – Unix/Linux § § Client – Unix/Linux, Windows Oracle Equipment Third-party products § LXE § Crystal Reports § Datalogic § Bar. Tender

Integration with ERPs Solvo. WMS provides integration features to interface it with ERP systems, such as Monolith, Galaktika, Parus, Domino, AX, Microsoft Dynamics Nav, Scala, JD Edwards, Oracle E-Business suite, SAP R 3, etc.
Working with Vehicles Each vehicle can be defined to work with specific type of loads and locations. Examples: Loader can work with pallets only in floor locations or shelf locations. Handcart as a vehicle can work with pallets in floor locations. Worker can work with a box in floor location. RT 1 Vehicle type Only pallets Load type Location type Floor and rack MT 1 Only pallets Only floor Worker Only boxes Only floor
Personnel Two categories of employees work with the system: managers and operators. Manager has management functions and works with WMS using PC. Operator works with inventory according to tasks from WMS and using radio terminal screen. The system allows to control which functions and commands are available for each operator. In addition, allowed working areas can be defined. Manager Operator
Tasks Task is an assignment to do a certain work in the warehouse. The tasks can be generated by the system automatically depending on a current operation or created manually by the manager. Example: Load is received to warehouse and needs to be stored. One scenario: after receiving a product, the system automatically finds destination locations, generates tasks and assigns them to operators. Another scenario: after receiving a product, manager gives command to the system to find destination locations, generate tasks and assign them to operators. Operators System Tasks Process System assigns to putaway loads into storage locations System Operation confirmations
Task Dispatching The operator receives task assignments via a radio terminal and confirms them by scanning the cargo’s or location’s barcode. If RFID technology is deployed, task assignments are confirmed by scanning the RF mark.
Task Execution Manager gives commands to the system to move a load to desired place. The system generates a task and assigns it to the operator. System Command Operator System Operation confirmation Task To move load to desired location Operator can move a load from one location to another without a task generated. Load moved by operator manually Task is not generated Operator System Operation confirmation

Receive Technology Chain The warehouse manager creates a receipt and sends it for processing before starting the acceptance. 1 6 2 Shipment Note 7 Receipt List Generating a receipt and sending it for processing Host System Closing the receipt Host System Printing a receipt list 4 3 Sorting, labeling, and placing in the receive zone Receiving via RDTs 5 Placing for storage Registering goods Goods Unloading Platform Receive Zone Long Storage Zone
Receiving In order to help operator identify receiving goods, the system can print a receiving sheet with information about goods and their barcodes. Receipt number Names and barcodes are staggered to reduce scanning errors with RF terminal Date
Loads Receiving via RDTs Operator gets a receiving work and can select the type of goods to receive. Operator can receive pallets, cartons or units RCN: 11 F 1 Cartons receiving F 2 Pallets receiving F 4 Units receiving F 5 Block receiving Operator scans barcodes from goods or receiving list. System displays information about the product and allows operator to specify additional parameters of this particular load. F 8 Close RCN F 9 Wght Pallets RCN: 11 Loc: I-01 -01 -1 SKU: SKU 7. . . Estrella Chip. . n" 12 Pr. D: . . . . Pckg: 60 unt 15 x 30 x 20 Cartons: . . . Pallet: Euro pallet Load: . . . After identifying the load the system directs the operator to the location within the receiving area where this load could be placed while waiting for putaway. Put pallet: LD 00124 To location: I-01 -01 -1 Loc: . .
Automated Receiving of Loads from Manufacturing Facilities Loads are received automatically. Each outgoing pallet is registered by an optical sensor. The data describing the current load batch includes information on the product type, the number of boxes and items in the pallet, the manufacture date, etc. Then a unique code is generated to mark the load and register it in the System.
Manual Receiving of Loads from Manufacturing Facilities The operator specifies the number of the manufacturing batch that designates the product type, the number of boxes and items in the pallet, the manufacture date, etc. Then the operator assigns a unique code to the load and registers it in the System.

Basic Configuring Rules
General Notion of Rules The system is guided by rules for planning tasks: putaway rules, routing rules, merging rules and so on. Most of them may be changed in real-time and would adjust the system operations. Putaway rules Routing rules
Warehouse Topology The Warehouse Topology window is used to visualize the warehouse situation and employees’ locations. The degree of zone filling-up is indicated by color.
Zones, Logical Groups, and Locations Warehouse location hierarchy and logical groups give a flexible mechanism for configuring the warehouse.
Employees Employee privileges as well as working areas are the basic tools to manage warehouse resources effectively.
Putaway and Routing Rules Using put-away and other types of rules combined with warehouse areas and groups allow for reconfiguring the warehouse on the fly.
Order Planning and Picking Rules Each warehouse has its own specifics for planning and picking orders that could be configured with special set of rules.
