Process automation along the entire supply chain is becoming increasingly important, now also encompassing the interface between the warehouse and transport. inconsoYMS (Yard Management System) is a software solution for planning and controlling the yard activities of plants and depots – with a new release offering expanded key functions, yard control via an App and expansion modules for the ‘smart yard’.
The new release of inconsoYMS provides comprehensive functionalities for efficiently controlling loading and unloading and managing all yard resources.
This includes the completely modernised graphical dashboard for improved tracking of yard processes and transports. inconsoYMS also includes extended functions for the management of multi-deep bridge and semitrailer locations, as well as collection points. With sophisticated, configurable display options, the functionally expanded solution thus optimises various yard topologies.
The new version of inconsoYMS also includes the newly developed, multilingual business App with an integrated control system. It serves as a navigation system for arriving trucks and a medium for communication between the planning level and the drivers. Thus, inconsoYMS is able to replace technical components, such as pager systems and local WLAN infrastructures for controlling yard movements. In combination with the App, inconsoYMS provides a comprehensive overview of planned truck arrivals for improved prioritisation of loading and unloading processes. inconsoYMS also allows for integrated voice control scenarios when used together with the standard releases of Amazon Echo, for example.
The system can also be seamlessly integrated into existing system landscapes, but in standalone operation, inconsoYMS provides high flexibility when managing the internal yard.
