Locanis Site Optimizer 360°

Supply Chain Execution System

What is an SCES based on a Real-Time Location System?

  • Locanis’ SCES is the only software that is developed to include dynamic location sensors that are attached to various in-motion assets, resources and inventories such as forklifts, AGVs, robots, manual operators or even a person walking through the facility
  • Utilizing unique IDs, the Locanis’ SCES can dynamically locate and track these tags / assets and provide dynamic information about performance and pinpoint position (X, Y, Z)

So why is this disruptive and unique?

Locanis Site Optimizer 360° solution is the only one that can provide the following features:

  • True real-time, accurate pinpoint mapping of all operational in-motion assets, resources and inventories on the site (forklifts, AGVs, robotics etc.) as well as true dynamic view of granular inventory
  • License plate control of inventory without the requirement to scan bar codes for each movement
  • Labor management based on actual travel paths, not forecasted engineered paths
  • Intelligent rule-based task management for all site task movements based on actual operational in-motion assets, resources and inventories, not the last location scanned (method used by all legacy WMS solutions)
  • Holistic optimization of in-motion assets, resources and inventories
  • Only SCES with US patent based on optimized task management
  • Think Uber vs. traditional taxi dispatch
What does the

INDUSTRY SAY ABOUT US

By utilizing Real-time Location Tracking Systems (RTLS) technology as a cornerstone of their WMS and Workforce Management Solutions, Locanis has developed a “game changer” in the Supply Chain Execution software market. Their technology allows them to dynamically optimize task management and task interleaving across the warehouse for all in-motion assets including lift trucks, robots, AGVs, trains, etc. This greatly reduces congestion and provide task productivity reporting based on actual warehouse travels paths. I’ve been in the Supply Chain Execution market since the late 80’s and have global experience with all of the WMS and Workforce Management solutions, the Locanis’ patented software is quite unique and has the potential to be very disruptive to the legacy WMS status quo. Legacy WMS solutions are comparable to the old taxi systems, Locanis is like Uber.

The Only

E2E SUPPLY CHAIN EXECUTION SYSTEM IN THE WORLD BUILT ON RTLS!

Yard Management


The SCES Yard Management functionality check-in the vehicles and automatically give instructions to the truck or container driver what to do and where to go.

Either he is directed to a parking place to wait and when the optimal loading or unloading dock is available (automatically calculated by SCES). SCES automatically instruct the truck driver, to go to the specific dock.

When the vehicle is assigned to a dock, SCES automatically assign tasks to assets and resources, to make sure the activity is performed as safe and efficient as possible.

When the vehicle arrive the dock, SCES automatically activate the assigned assets and resources to start the loading or unloading.

Asset Management


Manage and control all types of in-motion assets as well as AMHS equipment in use

Forklifts and other manually operated vehicles. If the asset is a forklift, tugger train, cart or similar, the operator receives the task to a tablet, in real-time. The tablet, is designed to instruct and visualize the specific task to the operator, and to visualize how to complete the task (driving order), in the safest and most efficient way.

Automated material handling equipment (“AMHS”), such as AGVs, AIFs, Robotics etc. If the task is distributed to an automated guided vehicle, the Site Optimizer 360° Supply Chain Execution System is the central brain that decide what tasks are sent to the different automated guided vehicles, that all tasks are holistically synchronized through the entire operations.

Safety for operators, machines and visitors. Due to the 3D interactive functionality and the mapping of the site, our customers can create a safe work environment in the SCES. Create pathways for visitors and configure the system that only certain amount of assets is allowed in defined areas with operators, the safety module covers:

  • Man / Machine
  • Machine / Machine
  • Truck / Man
  • Truck / Machine

Inventory Management


The Site Optimizer 360° is probably one of the most advanced Inventory Management Systems on the market today.

With 3D interactive real-time data visualization, dynamic control and optimization of warehouse and production location inventory, it brings your inventory management, utilization and efficiency, to the highest possible level.

Real-time 3D interactive control of your products, XYZ pinpoint position where your products are located, eliminates “search-and-find” or “go-and-see” and other inefficiencies.

Task Management


The Site Optimizer 360° Supply Chain Execution System is probably the best Task Management solution. Disruptive, unique and patented Task Management technology completely change the way you work, compared to traditional legacy WMS systems and other systems:

  • Standardization. Extreme level of standard functionalities, easy to adopt to customer needs, plug & play, configuration instead of coding and fast to scale-up.
  • Automation. The patented software algorithms and unique 3D in-motion push-task technology for assets and resources, go from manual decisions to a system-run operations.
  • Optimization. The automatic, directed E2E 3D in-motion task management functionality for all logistics assets and resources on the site (yard, warehouse and production), guarantees phenomenal efficiency increase and operational savings.

Transport Management


Transport Event Management System (TEMS): SCES functionality that control and monitor inbound transport movements with production material in 3D real-time (GPS), to proactively improve production planning, with the help of predictive and prescriptive digital real-time information.

Resource Management


Manage and control all types of in-motion resources (operators, pickers, kitting etc.) in use.

SCES supports all tasks made by different types on resources on the site, such as pickers, kitting assembly and others. Tasks done by an assembly (or kitting, picking etc.) operator at a certain workstation, are automatically distributed by SCES using its Auxilus functionalities.

Example: SCES Auxilus provides automatically a sequence of batch manufacturing orders to the picking operators which enables them to facilitate assembly work by kitting the right parts, using a tablet or other mobile devices. SCES is easy to integrate with Automated Material Handling Systems (“AMHS”), such as Pick-by-Voice, Pick-by-Light, Pick-by-Vision and others.

AMHS


Locanis RTLS-based SCES sets itself apart from traditional legacy WMS vendors as it is the only software in the world that can replace task management logic from AMHS systems.

Level 4: Locanis Site Optimizer 360° SCES replace the task management logic from the various AMHS systems and centralizes the orchestration and execution of all tasks and movements in ONE system

Level 3: Locanis Site Optimizer 360° SCES “Black box” or silo integration with 3rd-party AMHS such as AS/RS, AGVs, robotics and others, to provide a dynamic 3D real-time data visualization of all movements

Level 0: Traditional WMS systems with no task management logic for Automated Material Handling Systems (“AMHS”)
