Key DELMIA Apriso Roles for Warehouse Management

Warehouse Operator Role

The DELMIA Apriso Warehouse Operator Role is a powerful tool for efficient warehouse operations. Operators can easily access the production area and perform various inventory duties in this role. They can supervise the arrival of materials and make operational choices using Android or IOS scanners. One of the critical features of this role is its search function, which allows users to search by location or container easily. Additionally, operators can scan containers to suggest an appropriate area based on predefined put-away guidelines. This feature is readily available and can be used with a scanner or tablet device, making it highly versatile and user-friendly.

Key Benefits:
  • Provide tasks and direction to the operator for all key warehouse activities
  • Support all key warehouse functions including receiving, material movement, production line replenishment, shipping, and counting

Warehouse Supervisor Role

The DELMIA Warehouse Supervisor (WMS) Role is an essential feature of the Warehouse Management System that offers a complete solution for effective warehouse operations. This role simplifies all the critical processes in supervising a warehouse, allowing supervisors to access five primary cockpits: Receiving, Picking, Inventory Lookup, Counting, and Prefixes Configuration.

The WMS role provides a comprehensive view of a single site, encompassing multiple warehouses, bins, and locations. With filtering functions, supervisors can easily view the details of master and simple containers, streamlining container and inventory creation. The tool is highly versatile, available as an out-of-the-box application, and accessible via desktop, laptop, or tablet devices, enabling supervisors to view single or multiple sites and optimize inventory management.

Key Benefits:
