Release notes

1. Warenausgang

Schneller Packplatz - Erweiterung für nicht struktur- und frachtführerreine Aufträge

Betrifft Modul: Packplatz (403-01)

Vorteil: Ab sofort können bei der 2-stufigen Reservierung auch Sendungen zusammengefasst und am Packplatz mit dem Schnellverpacken-Modus verpackt werden, die nicht struktur- und frachtführerrein bzw. frachtführerübergreifend sind. Damit wird der Versandprozess flexibler und schneller.

Beschreibung: Bei der Abgabe einer Liste am Packplatz prüft PROLAG®World, ob in der Auslagersteuerung Schnellverpacken aktiviert ist. Ist dies der Fall, wird die Liste in struktur- und frachtführerreine Listen splittet. Somit können die Sendungen wieder mit automatischem Schnellverpacken verpackt werden. Nicht frachtführerreine Listen können zudem auch mit Manuellem Schnellverpacken verpackt werden.

2. Versand 

Verladung ohne Zuweisung zum Transportmittel

Betrifft Modul: Versandbahnhof (403-21)

Vorteil: Mit dem Verladung ohne Zuweisung reagieren Sie im Versandprozess schneller auf veränderte Rahmenbedingungen wie z. B. den Ausfall eines Transportmittels. Verpackungseinheiten können nun verladen werden, ohne dass die Sendung einem Transportmittel zugewiesen werden muss.

Beschreibung: Im Frachtführer kann in PROLAG®World konfiguriert werden, ob die Verladung mit oder ohne Zuweisung zu einem Transportmittel erfolgen soll. Wenn die Verladung ohne Zuweisung erfolgt, können alle Verpackungseinheiten dieses Frachtführers verladen werden, ohne zuvor die Sendung dem Transportmittel zuzuweisen. Standardmäßig wird nun ohne Zuweisung verladen. Bei der Verladung ohne Zuweisung kann keine Vorab-Ladeliste gedruckt werden. Falls die ganze Sendung mit einem Transportmittel transportiert werden muss, bestimmt die erste Verpackungseinheit auf welchem Transportmittel die restliche Sendung verladen werden muss.

Hinweis: Die Verladung ohne Zuweisung wird aktuell nicht im Dock & Yard Ablauf unterstützt.

 

Ware einzeln scannen - Browser-Packplatz

Betrifft Modul: Packplatz (403-01)

Vorteil: Sie profitieren von einer schnelleren und benutzerfreundlicheren Arbeitsweise am Browser-Packplatz: Die drei Scan-Felder "Artikel", "Menge" und "VPE-ID" wurden zu einem Scan-Feld "Artikel oder VPE-ID" zusammengeführt. Es erfolgt nur noch ein Scan.

Beschreibung: In der Maske Ort-Packplatz kann nun neu die Option "Waren einzeln scannen" gesetzt werden. Damit wird am Browser-Packplatz anstelle der bisherigen drei Scan-Felder "Artikel", "Menge" und "VPE-ID" nur noch ein Scan-Feld "Artikel oder VPE-ID" angezeigt. Am Packplatz kann man dann entweder Artikelnummer bzw. GTIN oder die VPE-ID scannen. PROLAG®World sucht, ob die Nummer eine Artikelnummer ist und ob zu dem Artikel Waren in der Packplatz-Maske geladen sind. Ist dies der Fall, wird in der Waren-Tabelle in der Spalte "gescannte Menge" die Menge um 1 Stück erhöht. Erkennt das System jedoch, dass die gescannte Nummer eine VPE-ID einer bereits am Packlatz geladenen VPE ist, dann werden alle Waren, die eine "gescannte Menge" größer 0 haben, in diese VPE gepackt. Erkennt das System, dass die gescannte Nummer keine Artikelnummer und noch keine VPE-ID ist, öffnet sich automatisch der "VPE neu anlegen"-Dialog und nach der Neuanlage werden die Waren in diese VPE gepackt.

3. Übergreifende Prozessse

Sicherheitsprüfung beim Seriennummern-Scan

Betrifft Modul: Seriennummernverwaltung (205-04)

Vorteil: PROLAG®World wurde um eine weitere Sicherheitsfunktion erweitert, die Ihrem Personal das Arbeiten erleichtert: Bei der Eingabe bzw. dem Scan einer Seriennummer wird verhindert, dass versehentlich die Artikelnummer oder die GTIN gescannt wird. 

Beschreibung: Eine Seriennummer muss sich im WMS von der Artikelnummer und allen GTINs des Artikels unterscheiden, dies wird beim Scan des Artikels in PROLAG®World vom System überprüft, damit es nicht zu Verwechslungen kommen kann. Die Prüfung ist konfigurierbar und standardmäßig aktiv.

Beispiel: Scannt der Mitarbeiter bei der Erfassung der Seriennummer aus Versehen den Barcode für die Artikelnummer oder die GTIN, so wird ihm eine Fehlermeldung angezeigt und die Eingabe nicht als Seriennummer erfasst.

 

PROLAG®Go

Misch-Lhm-Erfassung mit SSCC

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Go - Misch-Lhm-Einlagerung (302-04)

Vorteil: Durch Scan eines Serial Shipping Container Codes (SSCC) kann der User*in mehrere Wareneingangspositionen (WE-Positionen) auf einmal erfassen. Der User*in spart sich die Auswahl der einzelnen Positionen und damit erheblich Zeit. Im Optimalfall kann der Ablauf auf einen einzigen Scan-Vorgang reduziert werden.

Beschreibung: Identifiziert der Benutzer*in mehrere Wareneingangspositionen durch den Scan einer SSCC-Nummer, so werden in PROLAG®World unterschiedliche Waren auf einem Lagerhilfsmittel (Lhm) erzeugt. Es wird also ein Misch-Lagerhilfsmittel generiert, auf dem die Ware vereinnahmt wird. Die ermittelten Wareneingangspositionen werden nacheinander abgearbeitet. Es ist konfigurierbar, welche Elemente automatisch übersprungen werden sollen. Sind am Ende alle Wareneingangspositionen fehlerfrei vereinnahmt, erfolgt der automatische Abschluss des Misch-Lhms.

 

Mobiler I-Punkt - Sektorierung

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Go - Mobiler I-Punkt (302-03-01)

Vorteil: Die grafische Übersicht beim Einlagern von Waren mit sektorierten Transport-Lhm-Typen verbessert die Usability und das Personal kann schneller einen freien Sektor finden.

Beschreibung: Transport-Lhm-Typen können mit einer Sektorierungen verknüpft werden. Dabei muss definiert werden, ob die Sektoren "QUER", "LAENGS" oder im "KREUZ" unterteilt sind. Eine Vorschau-Funktion untersützt den Anwender beim Definieren der möglichen Sektorierungen. 
Am mobilen I-Punkt wird nach der Auswahl eines Transport-Lhm-Typen, bei dem eine Sektorierung hinterlegt ist, automatisch die gewünschte Sektorierung abgefragt. Zur leichteren Orientierung kann im Barcode des sektorierten Behälters ein Orientierungsbuchstabe mit Bindestrich angehängt werden (z. B. 100001-B). Der Orientierungsbuchstabe gibt immer die Seite an, vor der der Mitarbeiter*in aktuell steht. Es ist konfigurierbar, ob der Orientierungsbuchstabe in der Vorschau-Grafik angezeigt wird. 
Ablauf des Prozesses: Der Mitarbeiter*in scannt den Barcode auf dem sektorierten Behälter. Wurde der Behälter schon mal gescannt und befindet sich daher schon Ware im Behälter, wird direkt der nächste freie Sektor, in der Grafik in grün markiert, vorgeschlagen. Wird der Behälter zum ersten Mal gescannt, wird zunächst eine Auswahl der hinterlegten Sektorierungen zu diesem Transport-Lhm-Typen angeboten und der Mitarbeiter*in wählt diejenige davon aus, die er gerade vor sich sieht, z. B. "3-Quer" oder "2-Laengs" usw. Sobald PROLAG®Go die Sektorierung und die Lhm-ID kennt, wird mit Hilfe einer farbigen Grafik angezeigt, welche Sektoren bereits belegt sind (lila), welche Sektoren noch frei sind (grau) und welcher Sektor vorgeschlagen wird (grün). Sollte mit Orientierungsbuchstabe gerabeitet werden, wird die Grafik auf die entsprechende Seite gedreht, damit der Benutzer*in die Sektoren im Behälter auch in der Grafik so sieht, wie er sie physisch vor sich hat. Er sich schneller orientieren und die Ware in das korrekte Fach legen kann.

 

Warenverbringung

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Transport Warenverbringung (803-01)

Vorteil: Die Warenverbringung in PROLAG®Transport führt Ihre Warenverbringer/Zusteller optimal auf ihrem Versandweg und ermöglicht eine schnelle und korrekte Warenzustellung.

Beschreibung: Folgende Prozesse stehen Ihnen zur Verfügung:
Ware verbringen/Tour fahren.Abgabe/Aufnahme von Ware am Güterverteilzentrum bzw. beim Endkunden.Erfassung von Rückläufern und Rücktransport zum Logistikzentrum.Übersicht der transportierten Rückläufer.
Dieses Modul setzt eine stetige Internetverbindung zu PROLAG®World voraus.

 

Versand-Tour-Instanz-Zuweisung beim Verladen

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Transport Warenverbringung (803-01)

Vorteil: Beim Versand über PROLAG®World können einem Transportmittel zu Beginn des Verladen-Ablaufs die Versand-Tour-Instanzen am mobilen Gerät zugewiesen werden.Dies erleichtert die manuelle Zuweisung über PROLAG®World erheblich.

Beschreibung: Wenn der Frachtführer die Option "Versand über PROLAG®World" aktiviert hat und dem angemeldeten Transportmittel noch keine Versand-Tour-Instanzen zugewiesen sind, müssen dem Transportmittel zunächst passende Versand-Tour-Instanzen zugeordnet werden. Über die in der Instanz enthaltenen Versandpositionen wird bestimmt, welche Lagerhilfsmittel zu verladen sind.
Es werden nur Instanzen angezeigt, die jede der folgenden Kriterien erfüllen:
Der Status steht auf "angelegt".Der Frachtführer des Transportmittels stimmt mit dem Frachtführer der Instanz überein.Es wurde noch kein Transportmittel zugewiesen.Es befindet sich mindestens eine VPE der zugehörigen Versandpositionen auf der Bereitstellungsfläche.

1. Warenausgang

Schneller Packplatz - Erweiterung im Ablauf versandfertiger Artikelumverpackungen

Betrifft Modul: Versandfertig Artikel (205-33_1)

Vorteil: Mithilfe der Erweiterung am Packplatz müssen ganze versandfertige Artikelumverpackungen (AUVP) nicht mehr am Packplatz übersprungen werden. Dies bedeutet mehr Sicherheit und Kontrolle im Ablauf.

Beschreibung: Beim Kommissionieren ganzer versandfertiger Artikelumverpackungen (AUVP) wird je nach Konfiguration zwischen zwei Fällen unterschieden:
1. Bisher: Es werden versandfertige Listen gebildet und direkt Versandlabel gedruckt. Der Packplatz wird übersprungen.2. Neu: Es wird eine nicht versandfertige Liste für alle ganzen versandfertigen AUVP gebildet. Am Packplatz wird nach AUVP automatisch gesplittet und anschließend schnellverpackt.

 

Auslagersteuerung - Erst packen wenn alles am Packplatz

Betrifft Modul: Auslagersteuerung (203-04)

Vorteil: Die/der Mitarbeiter*in am Packplatz kann erst mit dem Verpacken anfangen, wenn alle benötigten Waren bereitliegen. Dann bearbeitet sie/er ein Lagerhilfsmittel nach dem anderen.

Beschreibung: Die Funktion "Erst packen wenn alles am Packplatz" unterscheidet sich von der Funktion "ganze Sendungen packen" darin, dass ein Lagerhilfsmittel nach dem anderen von der/dem Mitarbeiter*in bearbeitet werden muss und sie/er nicht alle Waren zu allen Lagerhilfsmitteln am Packplatz angezeigt bekommt.

Beispiel: Die Sendung besteht aus zwei Listen mit Artikel A und B. Die Liste mit Artikel A liegt bereits zum Verpacken bereit. Die Mitarbeiterin wird beim Versuch Artikel A zu verpacken darauf hingewiesen, dass Artikel B noch fehlt und noch nicht gepackt werden kann.

 

2. PROLAG®Go

Verladefotos dokumentieren

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Go - Fotofunktion Versandbahnhof (305-16)

Vorteil: Bei späteren Rückfragen nach dem Ausbringen von Waren kann nun mit Fotos dokumentiert werden, in welchem Zustand der Lkw bzw. die Ladung im Lkw den Hof verlassen hat. Die Fotodokumentation gibt dem User also ein großes Stück Sicherheit und eine zusätzliche Nachweisfunktion.

Beschreibung: Innerhalb des Verladen-Ablaufs wurde in PROLAG®Go die Möglichkeit geschaffen, über die Funktionstaste "F8 = Bild erfassen" direkt mit dem mobilen Gerät Fotos von den Waren im LKW zu erstellen. Die Fotos werden als Bildpool an die Ladeliste angehängt und in einem vom User konfigurierbaren Verzeichnis gespeichert. Wird die Ladeliste-History erstellt, so wird der Bildpool in die Ladeliste-History verschoben. Wird die Ladeliste-History gelöscht, werden sowohl der Bildpool als auch die Dateien auf dem Laufwerk gelöscht.

Beispiel: Sie liefern einem Ihrer Kunden Ware aus. Dieser reklamiert diese nicht sofort, sondern Sie erhalten eine nachträgliche Reklamation, dass die Ware sowie deren Verpackung bei Lieferung defekt gewesen sei. Mittels der gespeicherten Bilder können Sie nachweisen, in welchem Zustand die Ware ausgeliefert wurde.

1. Warenausgang

Amazon-Aufträge

Betrifft Modul: Versand an Amazon-Fulfillment-Center (203-32)

Vorteil: Der Versand an ein Amazon-Fulfillment Center (FC) wird ermöglicht, indem PROLAG®World die von Amazon geforderten Daten und Belege zur Verfügung stellt.

Beschreibung: Verpackungseinheiten, die an ein Amazon-FC versendet werden, erhalten zusätzlich zum Versand-Label ein Amazon-Label. Beim Abschließen eines Transportmittels, auf dem sich Verpackungseinheiten für ein Amazon-FC befinden, werden diese per ASN (Advance Shipment Notification) bei Amazon angekündigt. "Kundenstamm",  "Lieferauftrag" und "Lieferauftrag-Archiv" sind dazu um Felder erweitert worden, mit denen Aufträge an Amazon-FC gekennzeichnet und deren GLN (Global Location Number) angegeben werden können. "Verpackungseinheit" und "Paket-History" sind um Felder erweitert worden, in denen die BOL-Nummer (Bill of Lading) und die ASN-Nummer eingetragen werden.

 

SSCC-Druck für Kartons

Betrifft Modul: Erzeugung von Etiketten nach GS1-Standard (205-25)

Vorteil: Für Kartons können SSCC- (Serial Shipping Container Code) bzw. GS1-Nummern generiert werden.

Beschreibung: Wenn SSCCs (GS1) konfiguriert werden, werden diese nicht nur für Paletten, sondern prinzipiell für alle Transport-Lhmtypen vergeben. Sollte dies für einen Typen nicht erwünscht sein, so kann dieser für "keine SSCC-Vergabe" konfiguriert werden.

Beispiel: Sollen z. B. am Packplatz für andere Lagerhilfsmitteltypen als die Euro-Plaette SSCC-Nummern erzeugt werden, kann dies nun direkt im Lieferauftrag oder Kundenstamm hinterlegt werden.Wird z. B. an ein Amazonlager versendet, müssen die VPEs (egal ob Palette, Karton oder sonstige Typen) immer mit einer SSCC-konformen ID versehen werden. Wird für einen Kunden oder einen Auftrag verpackt, der den SSCCDruck hinterlegt hat, bekommen alle VPEs am Packplatz eine eindeutige SSCC-Nummer.

 

Verknüpfung von Druckbereichen

Betrifft Modul: Erweiterte Konfiguration sequentieller Kommissionierung (203-31)

Vorteil: Es können druckbereichsübergreifende Kommissionierlisten gebildet werden.

Beschreibung: Über eine neue Aktionsklasse kann man im Druckbereich steuern, ob ggf. nach der normalen Listenbildung Kommissionierlisten mit Kommissionierlisten aus anderen Druckbereichen zusammengefasst werden sollen. Das Ergebnis sind ggf. verknüpfte Listen, die Transportaufträge aus anderen Druckbereichen enthalten. Diese Listen sind mit dem neuen Kennzeichen "verknüpft" versehen.Technischer Hinweis: Diese Verknüpfen-Aktion ist nur aktiv, wenn im Druckbereich eine entsprechende Aktionsklasse hinterlegt ist UND wenn die zugehörige "Sortier-Reihenfolge für Druckbereichverknüpfung" einen Wert > 0 hat. Darüber hinaus ist diese Funktion von bestimmten Systemeinstellungen abhängig, da dadurch die Funktion ggf. auch ohne Veränderung der Konfiguration deaktiviert werden kann.

 

Vorkommissionierung von Fördertechnik-Bereichen

Betrifft Modul: Materialflussrechner (705-01)

Vorteil: Es kann druckbereichsabhängig definiert werden, welche Listen ggf. bezüglich Lieferdatum schon vorkommissioniert werden können.

Beschreibung: Über ein neues Flag "Vorkommissionierung Fördertechnik" (in "Lieferauftrag", "Sendung" und "Druckbereich") kann erreicht werden, dass Lieferaufträge mit einem Lieferdatum in der Zukunft schon vorkommissioniert und anschließend wieder eingelagert werden können. Hierzu muss in den Lieferaufträgen (in der Sendung) und im Druckbereich das Häkchen gesetzt sein. Kommissionierlisten aus Druckbereichen, in denen das Vorkommissionierung-Fördertechnik-Flag nicht gesetzt ist, werden zurückgehalten. Es wird hierfür der (neue) Zurückhalten-Grund in der Liste auf "keine Vorkommissionierung FT" gesetzt.

 

Lieferscheinetikett am K-Platz drucken

Betrifft Modul: Materialflussrechner (705-01)

Vorteil: Es kann auch am K-Platz ein Lieferscheinetikett gedruckt werden.

Beschreibung: Über einen Druckmodus im "Ort-K-Platz" kann gesteuert werden, ob am K-Platz bei der Kommissionierung ein Lieferschein-Etikett gedruckt werden soll.

 

2. PROLAG®Go

Neuer Android Verladeprozess

Betrifft Module: PROLAG®Go (300_01) und Versandbahnhof (403_21)

Vorteil: Mit dem neuen Ablauf ist eine Verschlankung und Optimierung erreicht worden, mit der Möglichkeit, zusätzliche Informationen und Anzeigen zu aktivieren. Das Android-User-Interface hat dabei eine einheitliche und durchgängige Gestaltung mit Fokus auf den wesentlichen Informationen. Es gibt eine Vielzahl neuer Funktionen, wie z. B. neue F-Tasten ("Abmelden des Transportmittels"), "Lieferantenbewertung inklusive Ausdruck" uvm.

Beschreibung: Der bestehende Ablauf wurde grundlegend analysiert und optimiert. Großer Fokus liegt auf der einheitlichen und übersichtlicher Gestaltung des User Interfaces. Der Prozessablauf ist wesentlich effizienter gehalten, wobei zusätzliche Informationen per Konfiguration zugeschaltet werden können. Es gibt eine Reihe neuer F-Tasten, die der/dem Mitarbeiter*in deutlich mehr Informationen zu der aktuellen Verladung bieten. Hier lassen sich beispielsweise die Anzeige des Verladeplans, Anzahl zu verladenen als auch verladenen VPEs, aber auch neue Funktionalitäten, wie das vorzeitige Abmelden oder Abschließen eines Transportmittels, oder die Möglichkeit ein Verladefoto zu erstellen, nennen. Das Tablet wurde als neuer Gerätetyp aufgenommen und erhält eine spezielle Sicht bei der Torauswahl mit mehr Informationen zur Belegung des Docks. Auch das Prüfen von Transportmitteln und Bewerten von Lieferanten mit Prüfprotokollen, welche als Lieferantenbewertung abgebildet werden, ist jetzt möglich.

 

Neue Funktionstaste am mobilen I-Punkt: Ware QS-sperren

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Go - Mobiler I-Punkt (302-03_01)

Vorteil: Die Ware lässt sich QS-sperren, auch wenn sie vorher durch die Einstellungen im Artikelstamm, der Bestellposition oder dem Lieferant nicht als QS-Ware markiert ist.

Beschreibung: Durch Drücken der Taste F6 bzw. Auswahl der Zusatzfunktion "Ware QS sperren" bei der Mengeneingabe, lässt sich Ware als QS-Ware markieren. An welcher Stelle die Funktion verfügbar ist, lässt sich konfigurieren.
Beispiel: Die/der Benutzer*in führt eine Einlagerung am mobilen I-Punkt durch. Dabei möchte sie/er die Ware für die Qualitätssicherung markieren, da sie beschädigt ist. Weil dies bisher an keiner Stelle, z. B. in der Bestellposition vermerkt ist, muss sie/er dies manuell durchführen. Dies geschieht, indem sie/er bei der Mengeneingabe die Zusatzfunktion "Ware QS sperren" betätigt und im Folgenden den Grund für die Sperrung auswählt.


Kommissionsnummer: Zusatzabfrage am mobilen I-Punkt

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Go - Mobiler I-Punkt (302-03_01)

Vorteil: Die Kommissionsnummer kann bei der Vereinnahmung von Ware am mobilen I-Punkt erfasst werden.

Beschreibung: Am mobilen I-Punkt ist die Eingabe der Kommissionsnummer möglich, wenn im Numbered-Element-Definition-Verteiler das Staplerelement aktiviert wird. Die Eingabe ist keine Pflichteingabe.Bei "Geplanter Einlagerung": Wenn die Kommissionnummer bereits in der Bestellposition übermittelt wurde, ist konfigurierbar, ob die Eingabe übersprungen wird.

 

Lieferscheinnummer: Zusatzabfrage am mobilen I-Punkt

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Go - Mobiler I-Punkt (302-03_01)

Vorteil: Mit dieser Neuerung wird wertvolle Zeit gespart, da die Lieferscheinnummer nicht jedes Mal erneut gescannt werden muss.

Beschreibung: Am mobilen I-Punkt wurde die Eingabe der Lieferscheinummer erweitert, wenn sie im "Verteiler PROLAG®Go-Abläufe" aktiviert ist.
Neu ist, dass die gescannte Lieferscheinnummer im System gemerkt und danach immer wieder vorgeschlagen wird, so lange man im Ablauf bleibt und nicht zurück ins Hauptmenü wechselt. Die gemerkte Lieferscheinummer wird jedes Mal vorbelegt und kann einfach mit "OK" bestätigt oder mit einem neuem Wert überscannt werden. Bei "Geplanter Einlagerung" ist zusätzlich noch konfigurierbar, ob beim Wechsel zu einer Einlagerung von einer anderen Bestellung die gemerkte Lieferscheinnummer wieder entfernt wird und eine neue Lieferscheinnummer gescannt werden muss. Weiterhin ist noch konfigurierbar, ob die Eingabe Pflicht ist.

Pick by Voice - Prüfziffer am Meetingplatz

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Go - Mobile Prozesse Basispaket (300-01)

Vorteil: Über "Pick By Voice" auf dem Meetingplatz abgestellte Lagerhilfsmittel können über die Prüfziffer wieder aufgenommen werden.

Beschreibung: Lagerhilfsmitteln, die über "Pick by Voice" auf einem Meetingplatz abgestellt werden, wird eine Prüfziffer größer 0 zugewiesen. Das Lagerhilfsmittel ist durch die Prüfziffer eindeutig identifizierbar und kann darüber wieder aufgenommen werden. Bei Abgabe auf das eigentliche Ziel wird sie ausgetragen, also auf 0 gesetzt, weil sie nicht mehr gebraucht wird. Der Wert kann danach einem anderen Lagerhilfsmittel zugewiesen werden. 

Beispiel: Lagerhilfsmittel L1 wird über "Pick by Voice" auf dem Meetingplatz M1 abgestellt. Es erhält die Prüfziffer 1 und der Benutzer wird aufgefordert, die Prüfziffer auf der Palette einzutragen.Lagerhilfsmittel L2 wird über "Pick by Voice" auf dem Meetingplatz M1 abgestellt. Es erhält die Prüfziffer 2 und der Benutzer wird aufgefordert, die Prüfziffer auf der Palette einzutragen.Lagerhilfsmittel L1 wird auf sein eigentliches Ziel gebucht. Die Prüfziffer wird ausgetragen.Lagerhilfsmittel L3 wird über "Pick by Voice" auf dem Meetingplatz M1 abgestellt. Es erhält die wieder freie Prüfziffer 1 und der Benutzer wird aufgefordert, die Prüfziffer auf der Palette einzutragen.

 

Erweiterung der Lagerhilfsmittel-Info um die Anzeige der Artikelnummer

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Go - Mobile Prozesse Basispaket (300-01)

Vorteil: Auf dem mobilen Gerät wird in der Lagerhilfsmittel-Info (Lhm-Info) die Artikelnummer mit angezeigt und auch als Trennkriterium verwendet. Dies ist für artikelreine Lagerhilfsmittel implementiert. Nicht artikelreine und leere Lagerhilfsmittel werden ebenfalls ausgewiesen, mit den Texten "Misch-Lhm" beziehungsweise "leer".

Beschreibung: Am mobilen Gerät kann in der Ansicht "Lhm-Info" ein Lagerort gescannt werden. Das Gerät zeigt daraufhin die Lagerhilfsmittel an, die an diesem Ort liegen. Die Lagerhilfsmittel werden gruppiert und sortiert nach:artikelreine WarenträgerWarenmenge pro LhmArtikelnummerMisch-LhmAnzahl vorhandener Lhm des Lhm-TypsLhm-Typleere LhmLhm-Typ

Beispiel: Eine Mitarbeiterin scannt einen Lagerort und sieht in "Lhm-Info", ob dieser zu einem Stich-, Fließlager, Platz-Regalfach oder Ziel-Regalfach gehört.

 

Gleichmäßige Autovereinnahmung einer Bestellung

Betrifft Modul: PROLAG®Go - Mobile Prozesse Basispaket (300-01)

Vorteil: Die gleichmäßige Autovereinnahmung einer Bestellung ist als mobiler Prozess auf einem mobilen Gerät einfach und flexibel möglich. Dies ist ein Vorteil für Bestellungen, die komplett erfasst und auch in unveränderter Form so wieder ausgeliefert werden müssen.

Beschreibung: Über den mobilen Prozess "Bestellung autovereinnahmen" kann man eine Bestellung mit wenigen Arbeitsschritten automatisch erfassen. Hierzu ist nur die Auswahl der Bestellung, die Angabe des Lagerhilfsmittel-Typen und die Anzahl der Lagerhillfsmittel (ggf. mit Angabe der Lagerhilfsmittel-IDs) notwendig. Anschließend ist die komplette Bestellung auf die angegebenen Lagerhilfsmittel bereits verteilt und bereit für die Verbringung an den Lagerort.

 

Dock-Belegung als mobiler Prozess

Betrifft Modul: Dock- und Yardmanagement (205-35)

Vorteil: Viele Prozesse, die Dock-Belegungen betreffen, können nun einfach und flexibel über einen mobilen Prozess gesteuert werden. 

Beschreibung: Über den Menüpunkt "Transportmittel Dock zuweisen" besteht nun die Möglichkeit, ein einzelnes Dock einer Dock-Belegung zuzuweisen, ein Transportmittel von einem Dock abzumelden, oder es zu wiegen.

 

1. PROLAG®World Basic

No pallet transports for ‘ready for shipping’ lists

Benefits:

It is now possible to configure that no pallet transports are made for goods that are ready to be shipped. This allows for more efficient use of time and labour.

Description:

Settings can be made to determine what percentage of the standard quantity the pallet needs to contain for a pallet transport to be carried out.

The following examples are relevant only for articles that are ready for shipping and where the article outer packaging, retrieval control and delivery item allow the ‘ready-for-shipping process’.

  • If there is no standard quantity defined in the article but the configuration value > 0, a ‘ready for shipping’ list is always generated.
  • If 100 is specified as the configuration value, a ‘ready for shipping’ list is always generated.
  • If the value 0 is set, a pallet transport is made.
  • If the value configured is between 0 and 100, a pallet transport is only triggered if the pallet contains at least the configured percentage of the standard quantity.

Libraries updated

Betrifft Modul: Basispaket 100-01

Benefits:

New functions and error corrections from external libraries can be used in PROLAG®World.

Description:

The integrated libraries in PROLAG®World have been updated to the latest version.



New fields in customer master: value added services (VAS) 1-4 

Benefits:

Special requirements, such as services or work instructions, which apply for all orders being delivered for a specific customer can now be entered in the customer master.

Description:

The customer master features new fields for value added services: VAS 1, VAS 2, VAS 3 and VAS 4. The value added services entered in the customer master for an order are taken into account in all goods issue processes where there are VAS specified in the delivery order.

Example:

PROLAG®World contains specific packaging and labelling instructions for shipping articles to a certain customer.



Customer-specific settings in ‘schema.ini’ files

Benefits:

General settings and customer-specific settings are made both in the ‘schema.ini’ and the ‘kundenschema.ini’ files. The ‘kundenschema.ini’ file only needs to be kept up-to-date for customised reports.

By entering language texts in the ‘(kunden)schema.ini’ file, reports can be created in multiple languages.

Description:

A ‘kundenschema.ini’ file containing customer-specific settings is created to correspond to each ‘schema.ini’ file.

Customer-specific settings for generating the CSV files for reports are written to the ‘kundenschema.ini’ file. The section in ‘kundenschema.ini’ always has priority over the corresponding section (with the same name) in ‘schema.ini’.

The ‘kundenschema.ini’ and ‘schema.ini’ files allow language-dependent texts. This means that a report can be created in multiple languages.

Data display in the ‘(kunden)schema.ini’ file has been simplified. The meta data is no longer listed. The names of the sections now consist only of the name of the relevant Jasper file (without the extension ‘.asc’).

Customer projects that use Crystal Reports still follow the old way of working with ‘schema.ini’.

Example:

The general settings for PROLAG®World are made in the ‘schema.ini’ file; the ‘kundenschema.ini’ now contains customer-specific settings only.

Up to and including version 2.9.5 and in Crystal Reports:

[artikeletikett.asc]
DECIMALSYMBOL = .
ColNameHeader = True
Format = Delimited(|)
MaxScanRows = 25
CharacterSet = ANSI
COL1 = Artikel-p_artikelnr CHAR Width 40
COL2 = Artikel-p_beschreibung CHAR Width 160

Version 3.0.1 and higher:

[artikeletikett]
Artikel-p_artikelnr

Artikel-p_beschreibung

Sprachabtext-artikeletikettSprachabtext


Fast packing with identical order structure

Benefits:

There are new flags in in the picking type and delivery order to determine whether the grouping field

set by the order analysis is a separation criterion for a global shipment reservation.

Description:

In the case of shipments reserved in a two-step reservation process, there is a high risk that there are a large number of interdependencies between the different shipments in the same picking package.

Example:

20 delivery orders of 1x4711 + 1x4712

10 delivery orders of 1x4712 + 1x4713

It is not advisable to pick a pallet of 30x4712 since it would take too long to wait for

the dependent shipments to arrive at the packing area for packing to take place.



Workstation included in user login 

Benefits:

As well as the computer name, the workstation is now also displayed in the login overview. This is a useful function since you can see at a glance if there is a difference between the workstation in the login template and the notation in the workstation records.

Description:

The workstation is now also displayed in the user login.



Convert Lieferschein.jrxml

Benefits:

The delivery note report (Lieferschein.jrxml) can now be translated into other languages without having to create a new report.

Description:

The delivery note report is now language-independent. The target language is determined internally by PROLAG®World.

Persistent field for purchase order quantities in delivery items

Benefits:

In the delivery order template, you can filter by the purchase order quantities in the delivery items.

Description:

The field lists the purchase order quantities (in the delivery items) per delivery order separated by a semicolon, that is, ‘1;2;3’ or ‘1;1;2’. How the purchase order quantities are sorted – by delivery item or purchase order quantity – can be configured in the ‘prolag.ini’ file. Note that the sort criteria cannot be changed once a project has started since this results in inconsistent entries.

2. Storage-in

QA reason in goods receipt item

Relevant module: Quality management 206

Benefits:

The QA reason can be set for an individual goods receipt item independently of the purchase order item.

Description:

As well as the article mater and purchase order item, the QA reason can now also be set via the goods receipt item.

Example:

The host system transmits multiple goods receipt items for one purchase order item. The goods receipt items constitute a pallet with different SSCCs. The pallets and the goods receipt items are allocated different QA reasons which are transmitted by the host. A QA reason is allocated before the goods receipt item is put away. 

3. Goods issue

Global shipment reservation with packing area optimisation


Relevant module: Goods issue 203

Benefits:
Packing areas can be filled optimally since the size of the picking packages for the respective packing areas can be predefined.

Description: 
‘Global shipment reservation with packing area optimisation’ means that the packing area defines the size of a picking package, for example, the maximum number of picking load units that can be picked at one time. The picking package is a self-contained unit and designed for two-step picking. All picking lists for a relevant order are contained in the picking package and a picking load unit belonging to the picking package can also contain goods for different shipments. 

The size of a package can be set individually at each packing area.


Example:
It makes sense to configure this option for packing areas with an upstream consolidation area, since the contents of the picking load units are not allocated to individual shipments until the load units reach the packing area. The packing areas have to be supplied with one picking package at a time. 


Change reservation if possible

Benefits:

A reservation can be changed in an ‘auto storage’ storage area without shortage items being generated.

Description:

The user can choose the ‘change reservation if possible’ button in the ‘lock/unlock storage area’ template to change the reservation for all the stock in the storage area. If it was not already locked, the storage area is locked for the time it takes to change the reservation. The reservation is changed at delivery note item level and only if there is other stock available. No shortage items are generated.

Example:

A stacker crane in one of the aisles in the warehouse is defective and it is not clear when it will be functioning again. By choosing the ‘change reservation if possible’ button, the employee can look in accessible storage areas for other stock that can be reserved to fulfil the order.  

Extended filtering for releasing withheld lists 

Relevant module: Goods issue 203


Benefits:
It is possible to control that the number of lists released for picking corresponds correlates to the amount of space free at the packing area.

Description:
The scheduled task ‘release withheld lists’ has been enhanced with a parameter for filtering the orders – with withheld lists to be released – based on the value of specific fields. An action class can be specified in the parameter for implementing the required filter. A new action class has been created for filtering based on the space which is free at the packing area. 

Internal: How the extended filter works and the prerequisites for using it are described under ‘Release withheld lists at packing area’.

Example:
There is only a limited amount of space at the packing area. A picker still wants to pick as many orders as possible simultaneously. However, the packer does not want the entire packing area to be taken up by half-open cartons. In other words, the orders or shipments should ideally be transmitted to the picker in bundles. This is now possible thanks to the extended filtering for releasing withheld lists.


4. Interfaces

QA and lock notifications via feedback table

Relevant module: Host interface 207-16


Benefits:
There are new setting options providing greater flexibility: Feedback messages with information on quality assurance (QA) changes can now be deactivated. Messages about QA changes and locking/unlocking of stock can be configured at owner and logistics centre level. 

Description:
There are new identification values for stock feedback messages in the feedback table (WARE_IN_QS_SETZEN, WARE_AUS_QS_NEHMEN, WARE_QS_GRUND_AENDERN, WARE_SPERREN, WARE_SPERREN_MINDERENTNAHME, WARE_ENTSPERREN). This allows all configuration options provided by the table to be used. The ‘WARE_SPERREN_ENTSPERREN’ (lock/unlock stock) and ‘WARE_SPERREN_MINDERENTNAHME’ (lock stock reduced retrieval) options are no longer available.


Automatic customer master maintenance

Relevant module: Automatic customer master maintenance via interface 207-21

Benefits:
This module enables automatic customer master maintenance in PROLAG®World without having to define an additional interface. 

Description:
PROLAG®World creates a customer master data record for each transferred order or updates an existing record via the customer number. The data is taken from the order header. Exactly which values are taken can be configured. Data records that are no longer required are deleted by the user.


5. PROLAG®Go


Trace PROLAG
®Go user view

Relevant module: PROLAG®Go 30x

Benefits:
For greater efficiency in handling support cases, the last user views called on the mobile device can be displayed showing the time they were called and the user entries made in the browser. This means that any incidents can now be resolved much faster.

Description:
If you select the log file for a mobile device, all times are listed at which a view was displayed to the user. The times at which the user made an entry are also displayed. If you select a time, the relevant view on the mobile device is displayed and the entry made by the user is highlighted.
Please note: This function can be used on an android device but is not supported by telnet.

Example: 
You have an issue with a mobile process and report it to our support team. The CIM support team can retrace the process visually and find the cause of the problem more quickly.


Scan printer in ‘ready for shipping’ process


Relevant module: PROLAG®Go 30x

Benefits:
The ‘ready for shipping’ process can be used without a mobile printer if the printer for printing the shipping labels is scanned after a ‘ready for shipping’ list has been picked.

Description:
If the user is logged on at a workstation and the ‘scan printer on mobile device’ option is activated, the user is requested to scan a printer or printer station for the shipping labels after picking a ‘ready for shipping’ list.

Example: 
Each picking area has a central printer for printing shipping labels. Once an article that is ready for shipping has been removed from storage, the user scans the printer in the picking area and the relevant shipping labels are printed.


Order picking: Confirm quantity by scanning destination load unit


Relevant module: PROLAG®Go 30x

Benefits:
If picking is performed using a transport trolley or multi-order picking (MOP), you can now scan the destination LU instead of entering the quantity. This avoids having to make lots of individual entries when you have a large number of picking operations with a large transport trolley. You save time and the process is automatically faster.

Description:
The ‘confirm quantity with destination scan’ option must be activated in the ‘configuration of mobile devices’ in the storage area of the source load unit. Users must scan the destination load unit instead of the quantity if they have collected multiple picking load units or a transport trolley (or scan the location barcode for location-managed transport trolleys). 
The destination load unit does not have to be scanned in advance in this case.

 

Allow goods receipt items at mobile I-point

Relevant module: PROLAG®Go - mobile I-point 302-03_01

Benefits:

The host can transmit multiple goods receipt items for a purchase order item, for example, due to different SSCC pallets, different expiry dates or different batches. It is also possible to scan and post goods receipt items individually at the mobile I-point. This makes for a faster and more flexible goods issue process.

Description:

Up until now, it was only possible to select and post goods receipt items in the browser version of the I-point. This functionality is now also available at the mobile I-point. You can search for existing goods receipt items and select them. As with the browser I-point, purchase order items which have not yet been assigned goods receipt items can also be selected and posted in the system. In this case, the system creates goods receipt items automatically in the background. For both variants, you can configure which information is displayed in the goods receipt item selection template and how the information is sorted.

Exception:

With GS1 barcode storage, the search for scanned values at the I-point is based only on the purchase order items. The search in goods receipt items is based only on the SSCC mode.

Splitting options for additions to load unit/stock


Relevant module: PROLAG®Go - mobile processes basic package 300-01

Benefits:
The user can fill up the addition-to-stock location with part of the originally planned quantity if there is not enough space for the full quantity. A new location is found for the remaining stock units. PROLAG®Go helps your employees to react to unexpected situations quickly and flexibly.

Description / Example:
An employee making an addition to stock sees that it is not possible to add the full quantity of 10 pieces since the shelf only has space for eight pieces. The employee can press the ‘shelf full’ function key to enter the partial quantity; the shelf is flagged as occupied. The shelf is not considered by the location suggestion in PROLAG®World until there is another stock removal. The system looks for a new storage location for the remaining two pieces. 


Reduced retrieval with QA lock


Relevant module: PROLAG®Go - mobile processes basic package 300-01 and quality assurance 206-01

Benefits:
Stock can be locked if a reduced retrieval is made from quality assurance (QA) and if necessary rebooked to a QS storage area. A host cost centre and/or host cost type can also be specified.

Description:
As part of the reduced retrieval functionality, it is now possible to lock the missing stock for QA instead of deleting/locking it. A host cost centre and/or host cost type can be set via the selected QA reason or defined separately. The stock can be rebooked to a QA area via the selected QA reason, which is a required field in this particular reduced retrieval mode. The data is deleted at the original storage location in this case although the stock remains locked for QA. A cost centre and/or cost type can be specified when stock is locked manually for QA.


6. PROSEND®

Packing area - Management of slots for packing units

Relevant module: 403-01 Packing area

Benefits:
This new feature saves time and costs during the packing process: You can have the system show your employees at the packing area the exact location of a suitable packing unit for a purchase order. This eliminates time wasted unnecessarily searching for packing units. It also prevents the scenario where the largest packing unit is always selected, again saving packing material and reducing costs. 

Description:
A packing area definition is assigned at the packing area to an appropriately configured storage area where the packing units are managed on a location basis. The location barcode is queried when new packing units are created or when the convert LU to packing unit option is activated. The packing unit ID can be scanned when the goods are packed and/or the barcode of the storage location at which the packing unit is located. You can only create as many packing units as the specified storage area can accommodate with free space.

Example: 
An employee is instructed to pack a purchase order containing 10 pieces of article 4711. A new packing unit named ‘shipping carton’ is created in the system. The location barcode of the packing unit is scanned, and the new packing unit is generated in the system at the appropriate location in the storage area. The employee scans the article number 4711, enters the packed quantity 10 pieces and then scans the location barcode of the packing unit again. From a system perspective, the goods for article 4711 with a quantity of 10 pieces are now packed in the packing unit.


Fast packing of orders with identical order structures

Relevant module: 403-01 - Packing area

Benefits:
The new feature considerably reduces handling times at the packing area: Fast packing using the lean packing area function is possible for lists picked in two-step picking which contain shipments with identical order structures.

Description:
The above lists are not split when they are taken to the consolidation area and, as soon as all related load units have arrived at the consolidation area, they can be found by the lean packing area. As soon as all load units have been booked to the packing area, the shipments can be automatically split and packed by choosing the ‘fast packing’ button. The user sees a message showing the number of units to be packed and the content of the packing units. If there is no packing unit type defined in the retrieval control, the user can select a type.

Example: 
100 shipments each containing three pens, a packet of gummy bears and a gym bag are reserved, released and set down at the consolidation area. The employee at the packing area clicks on ‘find order’, looks for the shipments at the consolidation area and books all three load units to his or her packing area. When they click on ‘fast packing’, the user sees a message instructing them to pack 100 parcels each containing three pens, a packet of gummy bears and a gym bag. The shipping labels for the 100 parcels are printed as soon as the user confirms the message. The content of the individual packing units is displayed again so that the employee can start applying the shipping labels during packing.


Managing allowed packing areas

Relevant module: 403-01 - Packing area

Benefits:
The workstation configuration determines the packing area definitions from which lists can be collected for packing. You can also specify on which packing area definition the packing units are created. Your benefit: If packing is no longer possible at one workstation, the packing unit can be released and allocated to a different workstation. 

Description:
It is now possible to configure that a new packing unit is created on the packing area definition for the workstation, instead of on the standard packing area definition at which the picking load unit is located. If the user is logged in via a workstation, a setting can be made to determine which source packing areas are allowed for packing. The entry is made in the ‘packing area definition’ field. If no entry is made, all packing areas are allowed. If an entry is made, a list can only be packed if it is located at a packing area which is entered in the workstation. There is also a new function called rebook list to different packing area. This function can be used to select one or more lists and rebook them to the relevant packing area.

Example: 
There is a retrieval control ‘ALS_PACKPLATZ’ (AS_PACKINGAREA) with the packing area definition ‘PACKPLATZ’ (PACKINGAREA). There are also three workstations. An additional packing area definition has been created and entered for each workstation. If the picking load unit is set down at the general ‘PACKINGAREA’, the three workstations which do not have PACKINGAREA as their packing area definition can now also scan the list for packing. The packing area definition ‘PACKINGAREA’ simply has to be included as a ‘source packing area’. Lists from the PACKINGAREA are also accepted in this case, and the packing unit is created on ‘PACKINGAREA’ or on the packing area definition of the workstation.

Lean packing areas with lists which can be reserved for global shipments


Relevant modules: 203-06 Two-step picking, 403-01 - Packing area

Benefits:
This new function reduces handling times at the packing area since non-split lists picked in two-step picking can be processed at the lean packing area.

Description:
If there are load units at the consolidation area which can be reserved for global shipments but which have not been split, the entire picking package has to be transported to the packing area. The load units are automatically split in PROLAG®World when they are set down at the packing area and can then be packed. The number of picking packages must be limited in this process in order to make sure that there is sufficient space for the relevant load units at the consolidation area and at the packing area.

Example: 
There are two load units which can be reserved for global shipments at the consolidation area. The load units contain shipments A, B and C. The next search by the lean packing area finds shipment A. Since the ‘global shipment reservation’ characteristic applies to this shipment, all load units belonging to the picking package must be taken to the packing area. As soon as all load units are at the packing area and have been split, shipment A is loaded and can be packed. Since shipments B and C are already at the packing area, they are processed next.


Enter transport vehicle in incoming PO item and stock


Relevant module: 202-02 Transport vehicle management at goods receipt

Benefits:
The transport vehicle used to deliver the goods can be traced and transmitted in the incoming purchase order item to the host system, for example. This allows for greater traceability in PROLAG®World.

Description:
Before a transport vehicle is closed, the system checks if there are still any open incoming purchase order items for the vehicle. If known, the transport vehicle from goods receipt is entered in PROLAG®World in the incoming purchase order item, the stock and the history.

Example: 
When goods are delivered, the employee responsible for goods receipt accepts the delivery note and creates a transport vehicle with the delivery note number manually in the system. The transport vehicle is selected at goods receipt in PROLAG®World, the goods are entered in the system and the transport vehicle is entered in the incoming purchase order, the stock and the history. Once processing of the delivery note is complete, the transport vehicle is closed manually as long as there are no more open incoming purchase order items for the transport vehicle.


Pack identical articles only

Relevant module: 403-01 Packing area

Benefits:
This function ensures that only homogenous packing units are packed at the packing area. This enhances shipping quality since the parcel recipient does not have to search through multiple different articles. It also prevents articles which are not allowed to be shipped in the same packing unit from being packed together.

Description:
If the ‘pack identical articles only’ option is set in the delivery order, it is not possible to add different articles to the same packing unit at the packing area. Packing units that already contain a different article are greyed out. The display shows the employee how much of the selected article is still to be packed so that they know when the packing unit can be closed.

Example: 
12 pieces of article 1001 and 5 pieces of article 1002 are required for a delivery order. At least one packing unit needs to be created for each article at the packing area for the goods to be packed as identical articles only.


Close packing unit automatically

Relevant module: 403-01 Packing area

Benefits:
The new setting speeds up processing at the packing area. Once stock or a stock subset has been added to a packing unit, the unit can be closed automatically without the employee having to explicitly choose the ‘close packing unit’ button.

Description:
The retrieval control can be configured such that a check is run to see if the packing unit should be closed automatically after stock has been added. If so, the packing unit is closed without any intervention on the part of the user.

Example: 
There are 200 packing units to be packed, each containing only one article. To speed up the process, a setting is made in the system to trigger automatic closing of packing units. A considerable amount of time is saved if handling 200 packing units.


Packing area: Identify lists via article number


Relevant module: 403-01 - Packing area

Benefits:
This function makes PROLAG®World even more flexible and user-friendly: If there is no list number or load unit ID, lists can be identified at the packing area via the article number.

Description:
An article number or GTIN can be scanned at the packing area. A list that matches the article number is loaded. The goods are selected automatically and the default quantity is ‘1’, meaning that only one more packing unit needs to be scanned. While the list is being processed at the packing area, it cannot be called up by other packing areas. The prerequisite is that the employee is logged in via a workstation.

Example: 
There is a load unit without a load unit ID at the packing area. The load unit contains goods for three different articles. The list is identified and the goods selected by scanning the article number. Once a packing unit has been scanned, the goods are packed.

Dachser: Telephone notification and additional texts

Relevant module: 403-54

Benefits:
Customers can now be additionally notified by telephone when goods are shipped by Dachser. It is also possible to transmit general information and delivery instructions electronically.

Description:
The telephone notification service option can now be selected in the shipping options for goods shipped by Dachser. The telephone notification can only be used if there is a telephone number specified in the relevant service info field. The shipping options are configured in the Dachser configuration file.

It is now possible to transmit additional texts to Dachser via PROLAG®World. A distinction is made between additional texts containing general information and additional texts containing delivery instructions. The texts are configured in the Dachser configuration file.

Packing area: Display all non-packed stock


Relevant module: 403-01 - Packing area

Benefits: 
When users click on the ‘display all non-packed stock’ button, a pop-up window opens in which all non-packed stock for the current shipment is shown. This information provides users with a brief and easy-to-access overview of the shipment so that they can decide on the number and type of packing units required. As a result, fewer errors occur.

Description:
The pop-up window shows all non-packed stock for the shipment that has yet to be placed in a packing unit and packed at this packing area. Stock in the table can be filtered and sorted. 

Example: 
After opening the pop-up window, an employee immediately sees that a large volume of some heavy-weight stock is en route. The user decides to take a Euro pallet as the packing unit. As a result, there is no need to repack stock at a later point in time.



7. Production

Relevant modules: 403-02 and 403-03

Benefits:
Service quality is increased for customers because the recipient is automatically informed when goods are shipped.

Description:
The PROSEND® shipping system allows users to inform recipients automatically by email that their goods have been shipped. The email includes a list of all packing units that have been shipped. The shipping confirmation for parcel delivery services is created as soon as the relevant freight list has been closed. The shipping confirmation for forwarders is created when the transport vehicle is closed.


8. Automated warehouses

Automatic recording of production times


Relevant module: Production 50X

Benefits:
Automatic recording of production times for the Business Intelligence tool 

Description: 
The time required for production is now recorded automatically. The timespan from order selection through to completion of finished parts is measured. 

Automatic changing of reservations in the event of malfunctions

Relevant module: Global processes 705

Benefits:
Guaranteed production supply and delivery if a stacker crane malfunctions, without the need for any manual intervention. 

Description:
If a stacker crane malfunctions for a specific period of time, PROLAG®World checks the storage areas to which the crane is assigned. The system looks for reserved stock that has already been called off and is now waiting for retrieval. The reservation for this stock is changed but only when a suitable replacement is available. As a result, no shortage items are generated.

 

1. Shipping

Packing area - convert LU to packing unit when 'pack whole shipment' option is active

Relevant module: Packing area 403-01

Benefits:

This new feature optimises and accelerates processes at the packing area when there are multiple picking cartons for the same shipment at the packing area and no further repacking is required.

Description:

As soon as all selected stock is located in the same picking carton (load unit), the ‘convert LU to packing unit’ button in the packing area template can be used (even though the ‘pack whole shipment’ option has been set).

Example:

There are 4 picking cartons (type ‘carton’) at the packing area for a specific shipment (the 'pack whole shipment' option is active).

This type of carton can be used for shipping. Each LU (carton) can now be converted to a packing unit (PU) without having to create a new PU and add the stock again. This generates 4 PUs (type ‘carton’), which can then be closed. 

 

2. Automated storage

Late cancellation

Relevant module: Late reset of delivery orders/delivery items (203-12)

Benefits:
You can use the late cancellation function to cancel or stop shipments and delivery orders that are already en route on a conveyor system.

Description:
When an employee initiates actions such as ‘reset order’ or ‘late reset’, the relevant shipment or delivery order is marked in the system and stopped at a suitable point in its journey on the conveyor. Once the last of a shipment’s containers has reached the designated point and/or has been removed, the shipment can be stopped in the system.

Example:
A customer cancels their order. The goods have already been removed from storage in PROLAG®World and are en route on the conveyor. The late cancellation function can be used to stop the goods and put them back into storage. 

 

1. PROLAG®Go

Change picking sequence using function key

Relevant module: PROLAG®Go 30x

Benefits:

Uers can select an alternative picking sequence (site-specific).

Description:

When a user scans the source location or source load unit during picking, they can select an alternative picking sequence, e.g. sorting class. There must be an alternative sorting sequence specified in the print area.

Example: 

A picker in a high-bay storage area first collects all picking lists from the ‘bottom left’ and processes them using optimised pick paths. The picker then goes to the ‘top right’ and collects more lists. The route optimisation functionality sends the picker to the ‘bottom left’ before the orders are processed using the same sorting sequence as before.

The picker can reverse the picking sequence of the lists at the touch of a button (function key). This means that it is always possible to pick everything from the ‘top right’.

 

Transport trolley required at mobile I-point

Relevant module: PROLAG®Go - mobile I-point 302-03_01

Benefits:

You are now reminded to select a transport trolley at the mobile I-point, if applicable.

Description:

You can select the ‘transport trolley required for goods receipt’ option in the transport LU type template to stipulate that a transport trolley needs to be used at the mobile (android) I-point.

Example: 

A transport trolley is required for certain transport LUs, such as Euro pallets. When an employee posts one of these transport LUs at the I-point, they are automatically prompted to select a transport trolley.

 

2. Automated storage

Compress containers at picking station

Relevant module: 205-03 Warehouse reorganisation (stock compression)

Benefits:

The extension for compressing containers at the picking station ensures more efficient utilisation of your automated storage areas. You increase the fill level in your warehouse and reduce the number of picks. This reduces picking time and saves resources.

Description:

It is now possible to compress partially filled containers into one central container at the picking station in PROLAG®World. A special selection template lets you choose which articles you want to compress. Compression (UMWBV) lists are created in the system. The automated storage manager (AutolagerManager) checks whether there are any UMWBV lists. If there are, it looks for a suitable picking station where the containers can be compressed. If a suitable picking station is found, the compression function is triggered by the system.

Example:

To achieve maximum flexibility with regard to stock retrieval, a customer ensures that the same article can be accessed at various different storage locations within an automated storage area. Because of the way the retrieval strategy is configured, a number of partially filled containers have accumulated. The customer applies the function for stock compression: the partial containers are identified and compressed up to a maximum fill level. This involves transporting the partial containers to the picking station and transferring the articles into one central container.

 

 

1. PROLAG®World Basic

Block storage with FIFO range

Relevant module: PROLAG®World Basic (100-01)

Benefits:
The FIFO range specified in the article master can be used to ensure that only stock to which a specific expiry date range applies (for example 100 days) is stored together. Stock handling can be optimally structured and organised using this feature. In addition, efficiency is enhanced and waste due to expiry or spoilage is avoided. 

Description:
Once the first stock items have been put away in a block storage row, the maximum and minimum FIFO dates for this row are calculated based on the FIFO range specified in the article master. Once this setting has been made in the article master, only items with a FIFO date in the appropriate range can be put away in the row. A new block storage row is created for items with FIFO dates outside of the specified range. 

Example: 
A pallet containing article 1111 with a FIFO range of 10 days and an expiry date of 10/10/2021 is put away in a block storage area.
The following limit values are applied to the block storage row: min. expiry date: 30/09/2021 / max. expiry date: 20/10/2021

A second pallet containing article 1111 with an expiry date of 20/10/2021 is put away in the block storage area. The limit values are updated: min. expiry date: 10/10/2021 / max. expiry date 20/10/2021.

A third pallet containing article 1111 with an expiry date of 21/10/2021 is put away. A new block storage row is created because this date is outside the specified range. Limit values: min. expiry date: 11/10/2021 / max. expiry date 31/10/2021.


Re-reserve delivery item – quantity to be reserved is smaller than originally reserved quantity

Relevant module: PROLAG®World Basic (100-01)

Benefits: 
This module can be used to subsequently adjust quantities if the quantity to be reserved is smaller the quantity that has already been reserved. This feature means that the process remains flexible at all stages.

Description:
If the module is active, the reservation can be changed to a quantity which is smaller than the quantity ordered. The status of the delivery item then changes to "partially reserved". If partial delivery is allowed for the delivery order, the order status changes to "released". This new feature has been implemented for the re-reserve delivery item and re-reserve delivery note item functions.

Example: 
Stock is reserved for an order, with PROLAG®World rounding up to full pallets as appropriate. Should the stock have been delivered in the meantime, it may be necessary to change the reservation to a smaller quantity.


Extension of stocktaking configuration for SSCCs and full pallets containing homogenous articles

Relevant module: PROLAG®World Basic (100-01)

Benefits: 
The stocktaking process using mobile devices has been simplified even further. This allows the user to act quickly and process orders in an extremely short time.

Description:
A new option is available in the stocktaking configuration table. There is a "confirm quantity for full homogenous pallets" option which can be used to predefine the quantity to be entered for full pallets containing homogenous articles. Users need only confirm that the quantity is correct. If they do not confirm that the quantity is correct, it can instead be entered in the usual way. 

2. Goods receipt


End criterion: filter for FIFO range

Relevant module: Retrieval strategy management 203-03

Benefits: 
This new function provides a more flexible form of the First-In-First-Out principle. All stock within a FIFO range is deemed to be equivalent, thereby making it possible to reduce the number of retrievals required.

Description:
The new end criterion can be used to only reserve stock within a configurable FIFO range. The "FIFO range for block" field in the article master is used to define this range. 

Example:
Look for the stock with the latest FIFO date (for example 01/01/2021)
Add the "FIFO range for block" from the article master to the FIFO date (assuming that a value of 9 days has been entered, this means 01/01/2021 + 9 days = 10/01/2021)
Remove all stock outside of this range (all stock with a FIFO date >= 11/01/2021, so that only stock within the range 01/01/2021 to 10/01/2021 remains)


Reserve delivery items separately

Relevant module: Assembly and packaging 203-21

Benefits: 
Goods can be assembled and packaged during the picking process.

Description: 
Using this new function, it is possible to define that delivery items for specific articles must be reserved separately. This means that goods belong to a delivery item as soon as they have been reserved. They do not have to be assigned at a later stage, for example at the consolidation or packing area.

Example: 
This module is useful for articles for which quantities are managed in units of length, such as hoses. If a delivery order includes items in lengths of 60 m, 20 m and 20 m of a particular article, three separate stock units should be delivered in these different lengths as opposed to one stock unit with a length of 100 m. 


Order analysis


Relevant module: Order analysis 203-30

Benefits:
The order analysis module groups and analyses delivery orders according to predefined criteria so that similar orders can be picked and packed more quickly. This allows for more efficiency and accuracy, which is an important factor in the e-commerce sector, for example, for retailers dealing with promotional products. 
The process is started manually using the order control centre functionality, for example. The analysis filters the orders and the number of orders is displayed in the result. A proposal is also made regarding reservations in the relevant wave pick (the proposal can be adjusted manually if necessary). If the proposal is confirmed, the picking settings are conveyed to the orders and the first wave pick is started.

Description:
Order analysis functionality is used to analyse orders according to specific filter criteria and to assign them to pick waves for reservation within configurable groups (by scheduled task). 

The user starts order analysis manually (in the order control centre, for example). The analysis result indicates the number of filtered orders in certain groups. Users can modify the results. However, the system is configured to make a proposal for reservation in the wave pick. The user then confirms the proposal. Depending on configuration, different picking settings are applied to the orders and the relevant pick wave is started.

Example:
50 delivery orders in the system consist of 1 delivery item containing 1 piece of article 10001. The user initiates order analysis, which shows that there are a total of 50 delivery orders consisting of 1 item of article 10001. The system makes a proposal in line with delivery order priorities and other pending delivery orders. The user can confirm the proposal and add it to the wave pick. The picking type indicates that two step-reservation applies to these orders. 


Cover address and billing address in delivery order

Benefits:
It is now easy to send an order on behalf of another company in PROLAG®World. A cover address can be entered in the delivery order and is printed by PROLAG®World on the shipping labels and shipping documents, indicating that the order has been shipped directly by a customer. It is also possible to specify an address other than the recipient’s address as the billing address.

Description:
The cover address and billing address are entered in the delivery order as references to the "address" table. The relevant fields for these two addresses have been added to the record types used for transmitting delivery orders to PROLAG®World. Existing addresses are used for the address data transmitted by the host, or new addresses are created. New addresses are identified as "temporary" and are automatically deleted when the last order that refers to them is deleted. The mechanism used to determine the sender address first takes the cover address into account and only then examines the other sender address settings.


3. Global processes

Temporary skipping of serial number entry in goods issue for AUSB (OUTB)

Relevant module: Serial number administration 205-04

Benefits: 
In certain circumstances, mobile devices such as narrow aisle forklifts can skip serial number scanning at goods issue. Instead, load units must be set down at a meeting area. This can be an advantage for warehouse environments where serial number scanning is not possible. A second mobile device collects the load unit from the meeting area and enters the serial numbers later.

Description:
The different mobile device types can be configured so that serial numbers are not registered at retrieval. Instead load units are set down at the meeting area. 


Scheduled task: Automatic Excel export to CSV or XLS(X) file


Relevant module: Excel export 205-24_1

Benefits:
Automatic Excel exports can be initiated regularly at configurable times and either saved in a directory or transmitted by email.
A scheduled task can be used to automatically export specific values. The file can be assigned a dynamic name or filed under a dynamic folder name. The generated file can be transmitted by email and saved as a .csv file. 
The new file format can also be used for the existing Excel export function.

Description:
The (*.csv) file format can also be used for Excel exports. The format for the download function is configured in the "Excel-ini".
In addition, users can make settings in the "configuration of automatic Excel export" table. For example, the table specifies which filters and fields are to be written to the file and whether or not the generated file is to be transmitted by email. Once the user has selected a specific configuration, a scheduled task is automatically defined for this configuration. The scheduled task can be activated and modified at will (for example the starting time). The generated file format is defined in the configuration table of the relevant entry.


Two-step crossdocking

Relevant modules: 
Two-step picking 204-04-1
Secondary picking 203-11
Shortage item processing - Crossdocking 205-15


Benefits:
Two-step crossdocking means shorter routes through the warehouse and faster processing times. A full incoming load unit (LU) can be taken straight to the goods receipt area. This is useful if all of the stock on the load unit is required to fulfil shortage item orders.

Description:
It is possible to configure the system so that "crossdocking for two-step reservation" takes place directly at putaway.
Once the quantity has been entered at the I-point (browser), the system checks whether the entire quantity is required to fulfil shortage item orders.
A message appears to inform to user if this is the case and the strategies and special two-step crossdocking storage group are optionally applied at the I-point (browser).
The entire load unit is booked to a special area for two-step crossdocking.
There, two-step reservation can be applied to the stock automatically using a scheduled task. The load unit then goes straight to goods issue.
This means that putaway and the usual wave reservation steps are skipped.

Example: 
The starting point is as follows:
A project has been configured so that "one-piece orders" are always reserved in a two-step wave reservation process.
There are 217 "one-piece shortage item orders" for string lights that could not be processed because there were no string lights in stock.
String lights are always delivered in ready-to-ship outer packagings, with 100 pieces on each pallet. Five pallets of string lights are delivered to goods receipt.

4. PROLAG®Go

PROLAG®Go - Unloading for android

Relevant module: PROLAG®Go extension modules - Shipping 40X

Benefits:
As an alternative to the HTML template, this process can now also be carried out on mobile android devices using the ‘PROLAG®Go - Unloading’ menu item.

Description:

A mobile android device can be used to unload packing units and collecting load units from a transport vehicle which has not yet been closed.

PROLAG®Go - Individual scanning of weight at picking 
Module: Smart glasses 301-01

Benefits: 
This is a new function for entering the weight of non-standardised goods individually at picking. 

Description:
Selecting the ‘enter weight at picking’ checkbox stipulates that the weight has to be scanned individually for each stock unit. A minimum and maximum weight can be defined. Using an adjustment method, the weight can be read from the barcode and entered automatically.

Evaluation of mobile device menu parameter for priority mode and retrieval 
Relevant module: PROLAG®Go - mobile processes 300-01


Benefits:
Specific menu items can be configured and saved for the priority mode and for stock retrieval using a mobile device.

Description:

Search limits can be defined in the parameters of mobile device menu items.

---
See parameters for mobile device menu item

Example: 

Two priority mode menu items are displayed in the main menu. Only stock retrievals are processed under the menu item ‘priority mode (retrieval)’ and only putaways, additions to stock and additions to a load unit in the second men item ‘priority mode (putaway)’.

Action class CollectListsWithIdenticalCriteria (ListenMitGleichenKriterienAufnehmen)

Relevant module: PROLAG®Go - mobile processes 300-01


Benefits:
There are now configurable menu items for priority mode and retrieval using a mobile device so that specific attributes can be set in order to build lists with identical criteria.

Description:
Attribute or attribute strings can be defined in the parameters for this action class. This means that only lists which correspond to the specified attributes can be collected.


Example: 
A mobile device is only authorised to collect lists for one haulier. If the first list collected is for DHL, it means that only DHL lists can be processed by the mobile device.

Assignment of list evaluation based on picking type
Relevant module: PROLAG®Go - mobile processes 300-01

Benefits: 
Stock retrieval lists can be prioritised based on the picking type.


Description:
The list evaluation configuration has been extended by the picking type. This means that retrieval lists in priority mode can be prioritised according to the picking type.

Example:
Lists with the picking type ‘large orders’ have higher priority than lists with the picking type ‘individual orders’ and are therefore processed first.

Create collecting LU after picking

Relevant module: Management of collecting load units 403-18

Benefits: 
As well as using collecting load units (LUs) at the packing area, collecting LUs can now also be created after picking in cases where the packing area is skipped. Another option is to add a load unit to an existing collecting LU at the dispatch area.


Description:
If the ‘collecting LU required’ option is activated in the retrieval control, the user must book the lists to a collecting LU when they arrive at the dispatch area.
New collecting LUs can be created at this point, or packing units added to existing collecting LUs. If the goods on a transport trolley have been picked and all lists are destined for the same staging zone, the transport trolley can be converted to a collecting LU.

Example: 
Ten lists for the same haulier have been picked and the required goods placed on a transport trolley. When the trolley is taken to the dispatch area, three packing units are booked to an existing collecting LU at the staging zone. The other seven packing units are placed on a new collecting LU with the load unit ID of the transport trolley.

5. Shipping

Variable packing unit dimensions
Relevant module: Packing area 403-01

Benefits:
Provides greater flexibility for non-standard sized packages. 

Description:
It was previously possible to specify a variable height in PROLAG®World for transport load unit types used as packing units. The height was entered at the packing area. You can now stipulate that the width and depth of a packing unit should also be entered for shipping. The packing unit template now includes fields for the measured width and measured depth.

All dimensions are entered at the packing area – either at a workstation or on a mobile device. If the packing area is skipped, there is an additional query for entering the dimensions when a list is booked using a mobile device (if a packing unit is created automatically). If a list is booked in the browser and the packing area is skipped, no dimensions are entered. In this case, the dimensions entered in the transport load unit types are also valid for the packing unit. The unit (cm, mm etc.) for entering the dimensions can be configured.

UPS: Quantum view
Relevant module: Parcel delivery service UPS 403-07

Benefits:
The UPS notification service Quantum View is now available to PROLAG®World users. 


Description:
Users of PROLAG®World now have access to UPS’s Quantum View service. This lets you monitor the status of deliveries and configure status notifications for you and your customers via email and SMS. Configuration settings can be made to determine which notifications are sent to which recipient.

UPS, Dachser and Fortras: Neutral shipping (cover address)
Relevant modules: Parcel delivery service UPS 403-07, Forwarding interface for DACHSER 403-54, Standard forwarding interface FORTRAS 403-64

Benefits:
Neutral shipping is now possible for UPS, Dachser and all forwarding companies connected through the standard Fortras interface, that is, shipping on behalf of another company or sender.

Description:
The delivery order template now contains additional fields for entering a cover address. If a cover address is specified, it appears as the sender on all shipping documents. The cover address and the actual sender address are both transmitted in the EDI message to Dachser and through the standard Fortras interface.

Dachser: Transmitting dimensions
Relevant module: Forwarding interface for DACHSER 403-54

Benefits:
A number of functional enhancements mean that shipping with Dachser is now even more flexible and easy to use in PROLAG®World: Dimensions, volumes and other data such as the weight of individual packages can now be transmitted to the forwarder. A cash on delivery service is also available for Dachser.

Description:
Transmitting dimensions and volumes:
Transmission of the package dimensions can be activated in the configuration file for Dachser. The packages are grouped by dimensions as well as package type, since the dimensions can only be transmitted at item level and not at package level. The volumes of the packages can also be transmitted.

Transmitting individual package data:
Settings can also be made in the Dachser configuration file to determine whether a separate item is created for each package. The item contains data such as weight, volume and dimensions. If each item contains one package only, the data can be assigned to this package. If one item includes several identical packages, the weights and volumes of these packages are added together to give a total. 

Shipping with cash on delivery service including specification of currency:
A cash on delivery service is now available for Dachser. The stock value or COD amount is expressed in the currency of the shipment or packing unit. Partial delivery is not allowed for cash on delivery shipments. All packing units for the shipment must be closed and loaded at the same time.

Automatic fast packing

Relevant module: Packing area 403-01

Benefits:
The new automatic fast packing functionality speeds up your shipping process even further, since homogenous transport load units containing one-piece shipments can be packed with just one click. 

Description:
Lists picked in a two-step picking process without consolidation are not split when they are set down at the packing area. The list can be called up in the packing area template. By clicking the fast packing button, all packing units are automatically allocated to the relevant shipments and registered as packed. The shipping labels are printed automatically.

Example: 
100 customers each order a copy of the same book. A Euro pallet containing 100 books is transported to the packing area. The employee at the packing area scans the Euro pallet and clicks on the fast packing button. 100 shipping labels are printed automatically. The employee can pack the books into individual boxes without further delay and affix the relevant shipping labels. 


6. Transportation


Reorganisation of free stock in automated storage areas

Relevant module: Cross-sectional occupancy - article 201-10

Benefits:
PROLAG®World ensures that the stock for an article or owner distributed as evenly as possible across multiple aisles or storage groups in the warehouse. This enhances your delivery reliability since if there is a malfunction in one storage area or aisle, identical stock can be accessed in another area.

Description:
A new scheduled task has been developed which can be used to redistribute your articles across multiple aisles or storage groups in order to achieve cross-sectional occupancy: PROLAG®World checks which aisles/storage groups contain the most articles and distributes the surplus among the other aisles/storage group. After PROLAG®World has carried out the analysis for one article, any necessary stock relocations are triggered. Only once these relocations have been made does PROLAG®World continue with the analysis and relocation of further articles.
