ETS is designed to schedule and move material under an automated
environment. The Equipment Scheduler performs this task by interfacing
with a variety of devices such as automated storage / retrieval stacker
cranes, automated guided vehicles (AGVs), conveyor systems etc.
Load Tracking System tracks/controls the movement of specific loads from one point to another and performs the routing operation. ETS was designed to take advantage of the Windows 95/98/NT environment. It has a Visual Basic front-end coupled with back-end SQL database connectivity via ODBC. So ETS not only can communicate with MHS but also to most host systems for the transfer of information.
