DMLogic (Booth 3584) showcased stepLogic, its development and customization tool aimed at simplying extensions or changes to warehouse management system (WMS) software or other applications.

Robert Kennedy, VP of business development for DMLogic, said the tool works with any WMS, not just the WMS software from DMLogic. The tool uses a Web-based, point-and click user interface that replaces traditional development tasks with simple configuration steps. This means customizations to systems don’t need to be handled by IT consultants or WMS services organizations, said Kennedy.

“If you go in and ask a company with a WMS how their system is working, they’ll often say it’s doing OK, but they usually have a list of changes or extensions they’d like to see with the system,” said Kennedy. “With stepLogic, we empower the end users to do more of those changes on their own.”

The tool was released last fall, said Kennedy, and is seeing use among users of various warehouse management systems who want to design new processes, build new screens, or streamline steps and processes. Changes made with the tool will migrate forward to future releases of a WMS, though if the WMS data structure changes, some minor adjustments may be needed, Kennedy said.

The tool can create screen and processes for terminals or full-form screens, and can even be used to create stand-alone applicaitons. One early user, said Kennedy, is using stepLogic to create an application that tracks accidents.
