The annual validation by the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics underlines and emphasizes the performance and quality of the future-oriented software system.
The speedy power pack warehouse management software KlinkWARE® is a completely new development and is based on up-to-date technology and software architecture. The processing speed of the control jobs in form of PLC-telegrams is up to five times faster than in the present system existing so far.
During the development, the specialists placed a strong emphasis on both the ease of use of touch panels, tablets and forklift truck terminals and on the clearly structured, ergonomic graphical user interface of the stationary and web-based version. With KlinkWARE®, the new generation of the previous Klinkhammer warehouse management software DC21, the user is provided with a long-lasting and future-oriented software which already today allows for the trends in connections and functions.
The mobile touch variant of the warehouse management software works in a similar way to an app. The slide function avoids laborious and extensive scrolling, the "smear" tool navigates easily through lists and by tipping the relevant functions zoom in. Scalable views offer with the "one-page" function the possibility to decide for an overall view or partial view by one touch. The lean and easy to use software thus considerably facilitates the handling for the user and saves time.
The menus of the stationary PCs and of the web version of the warehouse management software are logical to follow, self-explanatory and the ideal basis for the daily work. Meaningful icons and an easy, graphical navigation through the warehouse management processes allow a fast and easy orientation within the software. This way, the familiarization of the user with the software is reduced to a minimum.
Thanks to the completely new technology platform the processing speed of control jobs in form of PLC-telegrams is much faster than with the previous Klinkhammer warehouse management software. In tests with 4 PLC-controllers running simultaneously around 50 telegrams per second and PLC could be received and replied just as quickly. This corresponds to a throughput of 400 telegrams received and sent per second. This speed increase is achieved by the fact that job processing is not done sequentially but in parallel and thus more control jobs can be processed in the same time. Another innovation is the use of the "in memory" database technology being used for the rapid processing of statistical assessments, data exchange and archive functions. For these applications, not a conventional, relational database, but an object-oriented "in memory" database is used that works like a main memory and allows an extremely fast access to the data. Evaluations, data exchange and archives consequently do not affect the performance of the logistics system and are even faster.
KlinkWARE® integrates into existing system landscapes and offers a link to ERP, shipping and special systems. Interfaces can be adapted easily by means of own configurations and Java scripting such that they can be even programmed by the user itself. This is possible thanks to an interface converter, the integration framework WRX, which is used for complex migration and connection processes.
After a brief familiarization period you are able to select or change the warehouse strategies - whether FiFo, ABC-classification, height and weight categories, order release rules, order picking sequences or the supply to the packing stations. The warehouse management software has been designed such that it features a maximum of flexibility to adapt to customer-specific processes. Whether highly complex automated logistics systems or conventional manual warehouse area - the warehouse management software KlinkWARE® utilizes all potentials of the warehouse optimally and guarantees cost-efficient processes. With professionality during the project realization phase and a perfected competence in applying methods the Klinkhammer experts offer assistance in all questions concerning software operation.
The partnership between the Klinkhammer Group, general contractor and system integrator in intralogistics for almost 50 years, and the SWAN GmbH, a SAP logistics and automation specialist, guarantees that we will get the best out of SAP for you as customer. The direct connection of the SAP EWM material flow material flow computer to the controllers of the automated warehouse programmed by Klinkhammer guarantees an optimum integration into the existing SAP environment. The SAP interfaces were optimized to the Klinkhammer systems and are made available as modules.
The Klinkhammer Group, in cooperation with the development partner SWAN, accompanies the customers when introducing custom-fit SAP EWM logistics solutions from consulting and conception to implementation, training and support. SWAN contributes its logistics expertise gained from more than 500 man-years of successfully realized projects in various branches of industry.
The Klinkhammer visualization system KlinkVISION® illustrates the system in dynamized overview screens - for a rapid alarm diagnostics in the warehouse and minimized downtimes. . The Software always informs the user on the current state of all system areas.
