Westfalia Staging

From Conventional Low-Bay Facilities to High Rise Systems AND Version 2.3 Savanna.NET® WMS Visualization & Demo


YORK, PA., October 11, 2010 – On show at Westfalia’s Modex booth #3611 are flexible Automated Storage & Retrieval System designs proving AS/RS solutions for all size and shape warehouses – from doubling or tripling storage capacity of existing conventional low bay warehouses to new green field high rise projects -- and Westfalia's Version 2.3 of their Savanna.NET® Warehouse Management Software.  

Westfalia’s 35 years of experience developing flexible Automated Storage & Retrieval System (AS/RS) designs for all size and shape warehouses will be demonstrated through case studies from a variety of industries, including, food, beverage, dairy, publishing and more. Stop by their booth to learn more about recently completed high density AS/RS projects, including Gehl Foods AS/RS in a building only 22’ high where storage capacity was nearly tripled, and FAGE USA’s AS/RS expansion which enabled growth within a minimal footprint. In addition to spotlighting their experience in low bay warehouses, Westfalia’s booth will highlight integrating AS/RS with order picking via High Speed Layer Picking and Mixed Layer Picking. 

Key features of Savanna 2.3 include real time 3D visualization of the warehouse; a dashboard for tracking key statistics of warehouse operations; streamlined user rights management interfaces; and improvements to the order picking module for integrating third party picking solutions (i.e.; high speed layer picking and mixed layer picking).  Savanna user screens applying actual warehouse data will demonstrate the 3D Visualization of a warehouse from any angle, including walking through it and bird's eye view.    

SavannaThe Savanna 2.3 Dashboard is web-based, and allows clients to plug in the statistics they wish to track, with real time data.  User improvements include the ability for users to develop and save their own data filters, thereby allowing even greater flexibility for all levels and types of users. Also, user groups and rights are easier to configure and manage with Savanna 2.3.  Like all other aspects of Savanna, the new dashboard and 3D Visualization modules are flexible enough to be integrated into warehouses controlled by other WMS’s, where Savanna WCS is used.
