Most warehouses receive freight and small packages from DLA and commercial vendors. These items are normally labeled with military shipping labels or with IRRDs (DD 1348s). The shipments are sometimes accompanied by radio frequency (RF) tags. If you receive small packages via FedEx, UPS, or other carriers, you may receive those under a separate function.
The receive function is also used to add lineitems, enter logs and discrepancies, and create activity reports. This section will show you how to receive freight and small packages using different receipt methods; BCR, RF tags, and manually.
The forward function allows you to dispatch all received freight and small packages to other on or off base locations. AMS keeps track of where these items go. You can load both freight and small packages onto outbound trucks. You can also print tally sheets for the recipients to sign off on the items, either manually or digitally. In this section, you will learn how create, edit, and close out tally sheets.
You will also learn how to generate TK transactions and create CDO (Confirmation Delivery Order) records.
The ship menu allows you to ship material that is tracked by TCN. The ship menu allows you to create documentation and/or RF tags to accompany your shipments. You can start with lineitems to create multipacks and consolidate them into containers. You can create convoys and even ship a single item. This section will show you how to use the various options for creating and editing shipments and creating the appropriate documentation for each shipment.
The data menu allows you to work with the data in your AMS system. This is where you can protect your data by using the backup function, restore data from your backups in case of data loss, archive old data to keep your database clean and current, and search for records using the search function.
The system menu is used to configure AMS and set up hardware and software options. It's important to set up the system correctly to ensure that AMS operates the way it should for your site. Changes to the system setup are password protected. Ask your AMS administrator for assistance.
This section is designed to show you useful information about hardware used with your AMS system, such as scanners. You'll find instructions on how to load the AMS software onto your scanners.
