PlusFlex Order Packing System is a software package for management of order packing jobs on automatic production and labelling lines as well as manual packing stations.
Based on the production orders or customer orders the PlusFlex Order Packing System manages the packing and labelling lines – i.e. all data, required for labelling the products and information about outer packaging, pallets and similar data will be transferred automatically to the labelling line from the production orders or customer orders.
The PlusFlex Order Packing System may also handle printing the despatch documents automatically. When the ordered quantity has been produced, the batch will be completed automatically.
The system can be set-up to automatically proceed to labelling the next customer order directly without stops, if the line is used for producing the same product type for a longer period.
Then a order has been labelled and is ready for despatch, the data is automatically transferred to the master database system, where the order is registrered with informaton about the actual quantity produced, weight and number distributed er batch/loti. It's also possible to register key figureinformation about date, time, line ID, operator and rejected products, if any, and reason for production stops.
Using the PlusFlex Order Packing System will eliminate or reduce the operator's manual job, keying-in data - this contributes to high realiability, short or no time for switching job and no risk for incorrect labelling.
The PlusFlex Order Packing System kan be extended with an ERP module, enabling automatical transfer of order data to/from the administrative office system. This will also eliminate manual working procedure and the risk of entry-errors.
An operator terminal with touch-screen will normally be placed at each labelling line. Here the operator can pick the customer orders, start them up and monitor them during the entire packing process.
On the automatic Espera WPL-lines the orders are picked directly on the Espera-terminal.
