After four decades of providing comprehensive system integration solutions incorporating a wide variety of material handling equipment and fulfillment automation, DCS recognized the need for a new breed of warehouse execution system (WES). One built from the ground up, and independent from the software offered by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). One with the ability to deliver on the promise of scalability, availability, flexibility, and reliability.

DATUM powered by DCS

DCS’ new WES solution does just that.

The DCS WES blends warehouse control with tasks traditionally handled by a WMS. It handles order planning, intelligently releases tasks, synchronizes all current work, and continuously reprioritizes it for the optimal process flow. It can be deployed in semi-automated or completely automated distribution centers to fill high-velocity orders with specific delivery deadlines. It features the following:

Adaptable Software Integration

Just as DCS is brand independent, enabling us to design and engineer the optimal solution available for our customers, so too is the new WES. Thanks to its flexible, secure API gateway and integration bridge, it easily interfaces with virtually every warehouse management system (WMS) software—including those from all major suppliers, legacy systems, and homegrown solutions—as well as directly with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. This enables operations to increase their agility by expanding current capabilities beyond the limitations of any existing WMS software.

Modular Hardware Configurability

To remove silos of automation, the DCS WES integrates with a broad range of material handling hardware and warehouse automation. This includes conveyor, sortation systems, programmable logic controllers (PLC), autonomous mobile robot (AMR) fleets, goods-to-person fulfillment automation, light-directed picking, automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS), unit sorters, auto-baggers, palletizers, voice-directed picking, pick and put walls, mobile devices, and more.

Multiple Deployment Options

DCS WES can be deployed in the manner that best suits an operation. It can be hosted in the Cloud, on-premises, or in a hybrid configuration that minimizes the server hardware investment, while providing the required speed and connectivity. Depending on the degree of real-time information accessibility needed, DCS software experts can help a facility determine which deployment works best.

Intuitive User Interface

With a modern, easy-to-navigate, web-based user interface, DCS WES has been designed and extensively tested to provide key business information through full text search across all available data collections. Information is synthesized and analyzed in real time to deliver answers—not just data—about key performance indicators (KPIs) in easily understood aggregated dashboards and reports. This built-in analytics function helps operations managers quickly pinpoint and address material handling equipment and order issues before they become serious problems, including operating faults and exception handling.

Robust, Stable, and Secure Platform

Developed using widely used components that already form the backbone of the systems used by major software and service providers—including Google, Netflix, and Meta—the DCS WES base platform is both innovative, and extensively deployed worldwide. Its microservice architecture makes it both robust and well supported, with billions of users continuously improving and refining the source code. Further, because it was created from widely used technologies, DCS WES is steeped in the latest security protocols and standards. That foundational architecture makes the software extremely dynamic, easily updated and scaled, and highly resilient for maximum solution reliability.
