The Fluentis ERP software incorporates all the functions of a true logistics department in the Logistics Management Area, capable of following and tracking the movement of goods in the warehouse and all the items inside and outside the company organization. This area includes the documents relating to the passive and active cycle, as well as the internal movements relating to the production transformation processes.
Possibility to create n managed warehouses, possibly at locations. The created warehouses can be physical or logical, internal or external. The locations defined inside the warehouses are multilevel and, they too can be physical or logical. A tree structure helps the user in their definition and use. The locations can be managed with filling logics based on size or flow rate.
Ability to automatically or manually create the loading / unloading operations of goods using also logical and not only physical warehouses. The movement allows the management of several contemporary measurement units. The reasons for the warehouse represent a useful "template" to guide the user in the correct allocation of data.
The batch management foresees the possibility of moving the items by batches of both incoming and outgoing quantities. The definition of the batch code is completely dynamic and possibly different from article to article. Each lot can be managed through appropriate lot states in order to track the conformity of the goods in the context of the lot itself. Withdrawal policies can be managed at LIFO, FIFO, FEFO or manual withdrawal.
A SERIAL NUMBER
It is possible to move the articles in the Fluentis warehouse through the management of the Serial Numbers, or codes. Through this management it is possible to trace the presence of a single item across all the areas concerned, from purchases, from production to the sales and after-sales area.
With the management of the load units it is possible to handle articles in an aggregate way, that is through "batches" of quantities, which are normally grouped in containers, such as pallets, boxes, racks, etc. The movement of goods through these containers, suitably coded, allows a quick and easy identification of logistical operations in order to speed up and identify very quickly the batches of goods present in the warehouse or in the production area.
The Packing List is the typical logistic document that specifies the list of parts contained within a package. The details of the packaging and their contents such as weights, dimensions, quantities etc. are specified inside. It is usually used in exports and is mandatory and must be attached to the sales invoice. The packing list is used with the management of load units.
The Picking List, or picking list is the typical logistic document that allows the warehouse worker to pick up the goods from the warehouse to prepare them for a possible shipping area; rather than serving the more merely productive areas. Normally, Pickings are used for internal goods transfer processes and do not represent movements of a fiscal nature. Typically, a picking list is functional to the subsequent issue of a delivery note, rather than aimed at feeding a typically productive WIP warehouse.
FOR LOADING OR SHIPPING
The management of loading plans is a very useful procedure for the commercial logistics department. In essence, the processing deals with analyzing the feasibility of customer orders, possibly considering the availability of goods in stock. Through this procedure, the operator can easily prepare the fulfillment of a customer order, issuing the picking list or delivery note and committing the goods to the warehouse for the desired shipment. Basically, do three operations, linked together, through a single interface.
The ability to create inventory lists allows the operator to easily prepare a document with the list of items and accounting records for each material, also indicating the warehouse and the location where it is located. The operator will take care to verify the physical-accounting stock in order to be able to easily construct the adjustment records if the two information, physically-accounting, do not perfectly match. The management of the rotary inventory allows to block and isolate a specific area of the warehouse (for example the Locations) in order to be able to access quickly with the existence check, quickly prepare the related adjustments, and rehabilitate the area once completed. This allows to significantly reduce the burden of managing physical inventories.
