Supply chain software vendor Tecsys has launched a no-code, out-of-the-box 3D representation of the warehouse. Tecsys claims its Digital Twin 3D Heat Map as the supply chain industry’s first no-code warehouse digital twin dashboard and 3D heat map. The system is a customisable analytics solution that allows end users to visualise and optimise warehouse operations.

Tecsys’ Digital Twin 3D Heat Map does not require custom code or lengthy services engagements. It automatically maps warehouse data to a 3D representation of the warehouse floor and enables customers to track pick and replenishment operations by navigating the warehouse on their device.

Users of Tecsys Elite WMS warehouse management platform can use the new system to navigate through the complexity of typical warehouse data by visualising warehouse data and identifying areas of high interactivity where there are opportunities to improve workflows and throughput.

This new embedded composable dashboard connects directly with Tecsys Elite WMS platform, which provides system drill-down capabilities. This gives organisations the ability to track and monitor performance metrics, as well as make layout adjustments using an intuitive drag-and-drop interface. The mobile-friendly solution makes for an easy-to-use and dynamic user experience.

“We are very excited to launch our Digital Twin 3D Heat Map solution, which is a game changer for warehouse operations,” said Chris McPherson, director of Analytics at Tecsys. “This is an adaptable and interactive solution that provides our customers critical insights and the ability to track key performance metrics. It empowers them to make informed decisions to drive efficiencies in labour and operations.”

Tecsys’ Digital Twin 3D Heat Map solution is backward compatible with multiple versions of the Tecsys Elite WMS product, which allows both new and legacy customers to leverage the benefits of this new analytics solution. The digital twin representation can be generated automatically with Elite WMS data, a process that usually requires manual input and mapping. By delivering a compatible and visually intuitive tool, Tecsys is unlocking digital twins to any warehouse operator, an innovation no longer reserved for organisations with significant financial resources.

“This is the way we make digital twins in the warehouse accessible and mainstream,” said Vito Calabretta, senior vice president of Global Operations. “Traditional solutions that provide this degree of twinning require massive amounts of custom work by professional service providers. We turned that model upside down so that every organisation can tap into the performance benefits of digital twin analytics in the warehouse.”
