Westfalia Technologies to Highlight New Firefly Fault Recovery Visualization Tool at ProMat 2017
Logistics solutions leader will showcase the latest update to its warehouse execution system (WES) suite of applications at booth #S1238 and host two educational seminars during the premier supply chain event
February 28, 2017 – Westfalia Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of logistics solutions for manufacturers and distributors since 1992, will showcase its latest warehouse automation technology at booth #S1238 at ProMat 2017. During the event, Westfalia will highlight its new fault recovery visualization tool, Firefly. Westfalia will also host two educational seminars, “AS/RS & Automated Layer Picking Systems: A Robust Robotic Combination” and “Preparing To Automate: How to Evaluate Your Operations.” ProMat will take place April 3-6 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Westfalia developed Firefly as part of its Savanna.NET® WES application suite. Firefly provides a three-dimensional (3D), augmented view of the warehouse, inventory and automated systems managed by Savanna.NET® to help facilities run more efficiently and recover from automation faults more quickly. Utilizing an interactive, drag-and-drop user interface, Firefly translates user screen interactions with back-end commands to greatly simplifying the fault recovery process. In addition, Firefly runs on virtually any device, which gives companies the ability to view and manage their inventories from anywhere in the world, provided that they have the authorization to connect to their facility server and the Savanna.NET® WES application.
Dave Williams, director of software development, Westfalia Technologies, said, “The ability to recover from faults quickly is imperative for automated facilities. Firefly greatly reduces the time needed to identify and recover from issues and increases efficiency throughout the facility.”
Westfalia’s first seminar at ProMat 2017, entitled “AS/RS & Automated Layer Picking Systems: A Robust Robotic Combination,” is to be hosted by Account Executive Aaron Corcoran and is scheduled to occur from 10:30 – 11:15 a.m. (CT) on Monday, April 3 in Theatre I. During this seminar, attendees will hear from Cimcorp’s Derek Rickard and a representative from Sargento Foods, Inc., a Westfalia customer, to learn about the benefits of integrating an automated layer picking system with an AS/RS.
Westfalia’s second ProMat educational seminar, entitled “Preparing To Automate: How to Evaluate Your Operations” and also hosted by Corcoran, is scheduled for Tuesday, April 4, in Theatre E from 12:00 – 12:45 p.m. (CT). During this seminar, attendees will interact with two of Westfalia’s customers, Sargento Foods, Inc. and the Breakthru Beverage Group to discuss the process of properly evaluating your operations prior to implementing an AS/RS.
