Agenda Wave Management- Why bother? What features are included? How do I: –Group Orders to Create a Wave? –Review Fill Rate? –Project Labor Requirements? –Monitor Progress? –Automatically Release Work? –Review & Manage Exceptions? –Install Advanced Wave Planning? Questions & Answers
Wave Management- Why Bother? Have you ever asked: What’s the impact of this wave (BEFORE releasing tasks to the workforce)? What’s the fill rate for these orders? What if I fill these others, instead? Will this group of orders be done by carrier pickup time? Can I release all single-line orders as a batch? Can we fill the empty space at the back of a trailer before sending it cross-country? Can we ship another $X,000 worth of product by the end of the day?
Now You Can! Advanced Wave Planning (new with WMS Release 12.1.1), allows you to ask, & answer, all this & more.
