Warehouse Control System Planning

Improve your Distribution Resource Management

A Warehouse Control System provides more than just conveyor routing directions. An advanced or extended WCS includes intelligence for planning based on workload and staffing and visibility in real time to orders being processed.


Finding Your Balance

Sequencing and balancing work throughout your warehouse so the orders arrive at the right time down in the shipping lane area is a constant challenge when you have different methods of order fulfillment in your picking areas. Some of the typical parameters evaluated when sequencing work include: type of material handling equipment, operator picking rates, order profiles and staffing levels.
