Intelligent Design – Selective Architecture
DATASCOPE e.net Business Objects
- Online orders are imported into SYSPRO ERP (using SYSPRS e.net business objects)
- Their code then reserves inventory for that order (using the DATASCOPE Auto Reservation object)
- They then release the picking slip/s (using the DATASCOPE Pick Slip Release object)
- They then fire the label prints on eth conveyor line (using eth DATASCOPE carton label print object)
Triggers have been added to many areas of the DATASCOPE WMS software and can be used to fire off an event such as a 3rd party software solution or an email.
A good example of using a trigger is as follows. One of our DSPs developed software to build the required EDI XML file and then posts this to Cadacus (SYSPRO Shipping) for every dispatch note. They then configured a trigger from DATASCOPE WMS to fire after every dispatch note is processed within the DATASCOPE WMS software. This trigger fires off the DSP’s software and passes the newly created dispatch note number to the 3rd party EDI software.
Data Extraction Tool
This module of selective architecture allows for the automation of a regular output of data from DATASCOPE WMS. These Data extractions can be created within the DATASCOPE WMS software where they are given a unique ID and a configures set of input variables. A 3rd party software can then fire the Data Extraction Tool, call the unique query ID, pass the variables and this module will return the block of data to that software.
This tool allows a user to automate any store procedure off the SQL database.
A great example of this tool is a customer using this module to pass shipping data to their logistics services providers. As cartons arrive at the LSP cage, they scan the cartons in their application. Then their software fires a call to the DATASCOPE Data Extraction Tool and the resulting query passes back a full set of the details of that cartons order including delivery addresses etc.
The full realization of the power of the Selective Architecture module is seen when these tools above are used together in automating processes and integrating the DATASCOPE WMS software with advanced automation hardware such as carousels, conveyor lines, sorting systems, in-line printing solutions etc.
With this toolset our customers are driving delivering world class automated distribution centers.
