The module AMCS Reporting provides the ability to closely monitor the transportation and the related business both on an overall level and in details via numerous KPI calculations.
The AMCS Reporting module can, for example, be used to set up extended management/call center/logistics reports and/or advanced operational reports. As the layout and the content of the reports can be customer-configured, only relevant data is displayed to the relevant parties.
Reports could for example include the following: Weekly trip report (overall level), daily trip report all vehicles (overall level), daily trip report (vehicle level), customer service (overall level), customer service (vehicle level), loading list publishing, warehouse activities, warehouse performance and forecast report.
The AMCS Forecasting module is an advanced forecasting tool and an integrated part of AMCS’s planning systems.
Based on historical data, the module forecasts the replenishment time of stocks, or reversed, forecasts when stocks are filled up and need collection. AMCS Forecasting automatically generates orders, which are moved to the planning system’s order bank for planning.
The forecasts are generated based on historical data. The more historical data that are in the system the better, but the system can also forecast based on only one or two weeks of data. The short term data provide insight into the trends at the current stage, and data going one or more years back will have a smoothing effect on the forecasting making it more precise.
The module AMCS Geocoding possesses outstanding geocoding algorithms for automatic geocoding of address data.
Based on address data the module automatically positions orders/customers geographically by assigning X and Y coordinates. Moreover, the module shows a report on the geocoding quality. Thereby, the user is enabled to verify positions and/or change suggested positions by spelling the address again or by pointing in the map.
The AMCS Geocoding module serves purposes such as:
- Cleansing data
- Searching addresses (auto-complete when typing address)
- Verifying positions
What-if SimulationsRead more
The module AMCS Analysis can be used for developing what-if-scenarios. This is highly useful when analyzing, simulating and assessing the consequences in regards to possible changes to terminal structure/placement, selection of vehicle types, subdividing areas into territories, changing customer conditions, or in relation to transportation negotiations and bidding.
With AMCS Analysis it is possible to:
Simulate what-if scenarios
- Estimate long-term resource demand according to the expected level of activity
- Calculate and define the desired service level provided to customers
- Make reports of key performance indicators
- Make budgets for future periods
With the AMCS Loading module, users are able to perform automatic load optimisation and stacking of goods based on route plans generated by AMCS’s route planning system. This means that it is possible to find the best way of packing the goods while still respecting the order sequences on each route.
AMCS Loading is an integral module of AMCS’s planning systems. Based on data regarding truck dimensions and the dimensions of the ordered goods, the 3D load planning algorithm of the system creates an effective loading plan. Subsequently, the loading plan is sent to the ERP/WMS.
