So how to start?

At the beginning you should draw the walls of your warehouse. To do that choose from our drawing tool library either simple rectangle warehouse or polygon if its not regular shape.

Ready for placing first rack?

Almost all your effort should be put into the design of the shelves of the racks in order to obtain the actual location dimensions. This is very important as the system can calculate exact locations to put the goods into the correct places. Choose from our design tool library "rack" and palce it on a map. Then you can change the actual size and go to rack settings.

In the main view of rack settings it is possible to set up quantity of spans and rows for each side of it. Also the naming of locations can be configured. All locations consists of rack name, side, span and row to form names like: A1-B-2-1. All the parameters of the rack name can be either numbers or letters.
The rack settings can modify all shelves making as complicated structure as it is needed to obtain real looking rack. The video below shows haw easily the rack can be modify.

How to speed up?

When the first rack is placed and all other looks the same as it is common situation in warehouses it is easy as copy and paste to create quickly whole structure of warehouse. The last necessary element on the map is to place the zone and check it as a outcome zone. This gives the Artificial Intelligence the information where the picking process should end.

So how much time it will take to create whole warehouse?

Thanks to Pinquark WMS map designer the whole structure of warehouse can be created in just several minutes to few hours. Below, complete map of our client warehouse, it took just about 1,5 hour to draw all racks. The most difficult here was that almost each rack had its own modifications done by rack settings.

In opposite to standard WMS there is no need for table like location creation. Users can now design whole warehouse in most natural and understandable way which is graphic.
