Most WCS systems out there are 20-30 years old. And, their use of antiquated communication and integration methods make them feel like it. Built with modern technologies like DataGrids, Kafka Messaging, and a standards API, ElasticWCS can be deployed in any combination of on-premises, hybrid, and cloud deployments.
But beyond a myriad of deployment options, what this means to the WMS is this: Simple, secure REST calls to send routing information and an even simpler and secure WCS Event service. Posting back to the WMS, we expose all the WCS events with which the WMS may have interest.
ElasticWCS handles one or multiple PLCs running on industry-standard EtherNet/IP networks.
Our next release will include support for Pick-to-Light/Put-To-Light and an ASRS abstraction. Additionally, we will release our WCS emulator, now being trialed by a couple our large multinational customers who use automation heavily, able to mimic the interactions of a variety of ASRS, aAGV systems and commercial WCS systems.
ElasticWCS, as with all the AttunedLabs/GetUsROI innovations, is free for our customers and partners to use.
