TruStor is a complete Warehouse Management System (WMS) consisting of material handling equipment automation and supervisory logic to optimize storage space and efficiency. It allows for dynamic configuration as storage needs change. TruStor uses a granular system of rules and algorithms to adapt to a wide variety of applications. It is also capable of interfacing to other systems via a variety of standard methods.

TruStor Configurability

  •  Algorithms for optimizing product placement and retrieval as product mix changes
  •  Computer simulations aid in optimizing logic and measuring efficiency
  •  Heuristic algorithms for system learning (future)
  •  Physical arrangement of equipment and storage locations
  •  Virtual storage models
  •  Interface to upstream systems (ERP, corporate or plant ordering systems)
  •  Flexible vehicle load weight and sizes

TruStor delivers Level 1 and Level 2 systems as an integrated solution for warehouse needs. Traditionally companies build warehouses sourcing L1 and L2 from different companies. TruStor contains advantages in efficiency with L1 and L2 integrating more information for improved logic decisions. Level 3 (ERP or other) interfaces with TruStor using flexible methods of communication.
