Time windows

Planning makes sense

Clarity

Particular time windows are presented graphically in the form of a diagram. The windows can be shifted, copied or deleted with a mouse, directly on the diagram. The diagram also shows window occupancy and the status of advice note assigned to particular windows.

Speed

The process of advising multiple typical visits may be accelerated by means of templates. Thus, in the simplest variant, it suffices to provide the date and time of a planned visit to complete the process of advising a delivery.

Performance

The system allows one to manage multiple locations, where multiple warehouses and docs can be defined. Thus, one may efficiently manage even a highly extensive structure of an enterprise and do so within one system.

Schedule of deliveries

Do not keep anyone waiting

Proper planning of the realization of particular advised events allows one to rationalize and order warehouse functioning and to get rid of organizational chaos. Once appropriate time windows are defined and a specific amount of time is allocated to handling of particular operations, one can avoid the burdensome queues of vehicles waiting to be admitted into the warehouse.

Dockscheduling - Integracja pracy

Work integration

Work alone or in a group

Operations may be planned by one person or several persons, on detailed screens prepared for this purpose. In a most complex and extended case, the ordering party introduces an operation to be performed, a contractor selects the forwarding agent to perform the operation, the forwarding agent indicates the term that is convenient for him (from among those made available by the warehouse), while the freight carrier provides the detailed data of the driver and the means of transport. It is also possible to configure mixed solutions.

Advising of deliveries

Plan what you can

Time windows may be defined for particular docs, while taking advantage of pre-defined templates that cover a model week of work. A time window is a period of time, within which a particular operation is performed. Time windows may follow each other directly or there may appear a break between particular windows, for instance, due to temporary technical unavailability of a given dock. Each dock may also be assigned selected types of means of transport (e.g. refrigerated trucks) that this particular dock can support.

Dockscheduling - Czas operacji

Delivery planning

Time matters

The duration of a given operation may be precisely defined or it may be conditioned on the amount of goods to be handled within a given operation or on the type of means of transport that participates in such an operation. If the duration of an operation exceeds the span of a single time window, the following adjacent time windows get reserved, so as to ensure the total time of occupied time windows is larger than the calculated duration of the operation in question.

Advising of scheduled operations

To each according to his needs

Operations prepared beforehand may be scheduled to be performed by particular process participants, and each of the participants has got access only to these operations, which they are in charge of. Thus, employees of the client support office may get a preview of all operations, while particular contractors have access only to their own operation, and all this in a single system. When scheduling operations to be advised, the ordering party may decide what and when is to be delivered to or received from a warehouse.

Cooperation within delivery networks

Communication and responsibility

Monitoring

Once an advised event is scheduled, the user monitors the progress of the advice note realization. It is possible to get information concerning the time, when a means of transport arrives to the warehouse, when it leaves the site and when particular operations are commenced and completed. Moreover, the system makes available detailed information about operations performed (e.g. the amount of goods).

Communication

All the pieces of information related to a given advise note are stored in a single system and are available to various participants in the process. Therefore, there is no need to contact a contractor outside the system itself. As it is possible to accompany advise notes with attachments and comments, it also becomes possible to make available additional documents related to a given visit.

Quality

The probability that means of transport shall be provided on time in the required location increases, because all the participants get engaged in the process of scheduling and realization of an operation. As a contractor can choose an advised term that is convenient to him, he can adapt it better to other obligations he is to meet within the same period. Timely realization of operations means quality for all the participants of the delivery network.

Management of time windows

Time really counts

As available and occupied warehouse docks are presented graphically, one can quickly and easily monitor their current and scheduled utilization. One can verify scheduled warehousing operations at a glance and adjust the number of employees assigned to handle advising events in particular time spans and warehouses.

Dockscheduling - interfejsy

Interfaces to other systems

Integration brings profits...

Wherever it is necessary to enhance works automation, Qguar DS may get integrated with external systems. Thus, data may be quickly and automatically exchanged between systems.
