Oracle/DC Solution Overview
The Oracle DC software solution automates standard Oracle receiving, inventory movement & counting, and shipping transaction processing.
As each vendor shipment arrives, your receiving clerk will scan the bar code labels, capturing and verifying your purchase order number, part numbers & quantities, lot numbers, etc., against your own receiving tolerances. You can also prompt the clerk with put-away locations and/or direct issues to the shop floor. Oracle inventory is updated immediately upon receipt. Receiving labels may also be printed and applied to automate receipts from vendors not compliant with your label specifications.
Your personnel can bypass time-consuming paperwork and manual data entry by scanning part and locations to perform inventory transfers, issues, adjustments and returns, and update Oracle in real time. Counting procedures are also simplified by downloading count items, locations and bin contents to the user’s terminal with no need to log into Oracle.
Quickly selecting the right item in the right quantity for the right customer – every time – is the key to shipping success. When the Oracle pick list is downloaded to your shipping clerk, the exact item, quantity and location information guides the clerk to make the proper selections, and verifies the accuracy of each pick. Your customer’s specified shipping labels will print automatically, saving the time and potential for manual data entry errors.
Real time shop floor visibility requires automated production reporting. Bar coded manufacturing documents are scanned to simplify production data entry and labor calculations. Oracle jobs or schedules are automatically updated with completion quantities and elapsed labor and machine times.
Predefined bar code label formats are delivered for and integrated with each Oracle DC transaction. Label data is pulled from your Oracle database, eliminating manual data entry and outside label databases. You may also configure existing label formats, or produce your own formats, to meet virtually any labeling requirement.
The Oracle DC IntelliLabel intelligent label system monitors the status of each user-defined container (pallet, carton, box, etc.) throughout your inventory and shipping operations. A single scan of the bar coded ‘license plate’ will update Oracle with the status of the master container, as well as the status of each detailed container and/or item inside.
