WCS News will examine the supply chain and efforts to control the movement and storage of materials within a warehouse and process the associated transactions, including shipping, receiving, putaway and picking. The weekly news magazine will also look at best practices in directing and optimizing stock based on real-time information about the status of bin utilization.
WCS News is a fast look at warehouse management involving the receipt, storage and movement of goods, (normally finished goods), to intermediate storage locations or to a final customer. WCS News recognizes the roles of central warehouse, regional warehouses (serviced by the central warehouse), and potentially retail warehouses (serviced by the regional warehouses).
WCS News provides up-to-date information how WCS systems utilize automatic identification and data capture technology, such as barcode scanners, mobile computers, wireless LANs and potentially radio-frequency identification (RFID) to efficiently monitor the flow of products. Processes such as batch synchronization or real-time wireless transmission to a central database will be discussed in each issue.
Tier 1 warehouse control systems solutions are helping because even the best WMS has a brief lag time in transmitting instructions to a high-speed sortation system. There are simply too many warehouses with tens of thousands of decisions being made daily that require split-second timing.
