New Orleans, LA--August 29, 1996--The MK Group, an independent business unit of Computer Associates International Inc. introduced a new functionality for Advanced Warehouse Management to MK, its integrated ERP product for mid-size manufacturers.
Advanced Warehouse Management (AWM) fully supports the management of all warehouse activities, personnel, and equipment. With AWM, MK users will be able to manage warehouse inventories using sophisticated techniques for random location, directed put-away, and cross-docking, with full radio frequency support. AWM functionality has previously been available as CA-Warehouse Boss, and has been successfully implemented in many warehouse environments.
The AWM module will be first available for MK users in the Windows NT and Hewlett-Packard HP-UX operating environment with identical application functionality available shortly for users of Digital Unix, IBM AIX, and Sun Solaris.
The MK product, formerly known as CA-MANMAN/X, is a comprehensive, rules-based solution that is suited for mid-size assemble-to-order, made-to-order, configure-to-order, engineer-to-order, light repetitive, or mixed-mode manufacturers. MK, an acronym for Manufacturing Knowledge, is an open system, which allows users to select the supporting platform and database. The first release of the product will support the CA-OpenIngres and Oracle databases, with additional database support planned for the future.
