Oracle WMS and Peoplevox improve warehousing management of leading aircraft landing gear manufacturer

In 2008, Peoplevox overcame the following issues for leading aircraft landing gear manufacturer, Messier-Dowty, combining it with Oracle WMS (warehouse management system):

>> Intermittent data loss from handheld barcode data terminals

>> Uncertainty as to source of external interference on wireless network

>> Uncertainty as to what would happen when installing additional high lift carousels

>> Existing handheld terminals becoming old

>> Support systems from suppliers needed improving

Together, Peoplevox in partnership with Motorola for the hardware and Oracle for the application software as part of the Oracle E-Business Suite, provided the following solutions:

>> Conducted a thorough wireless site survey covering all potential interferences both externally and internally from motors, switching of large ovens, spraying and welding operations

>> Checked parameters for coverage leakage and security

>> Conducted a thorough spectrum analysis identifying redundancy coverage with access ports, thus maintaining a minimum coverage in case one goes pop

>> Identifying areas where the signal was low due to reflection and absorption

>> Ensure future proofing for introduction of 802.11n high data capacity capability along with Rfid and VoIP

>> Back-up for system failures including potential land connectivity between buildings

>> Replacement of DOS based solution with latest CE handheld devices from Motorola, to integrate with the latest Oracle WMS

>> Deployment of service portal by Peoplevox to enable issues and repairs of complete system to be logged online
