WCS News Issue 2 Talks Traffic Cop of Material Handling Equipment

WCS News Issue 2 Talks Traffic Cop of Material Handling Equipment

 
PRLog - Aug. 13, 2014 - In the second issue of WCS News, a weekly e-news publication, Warehouse Control Systems (WCSs) was discussed as the "traffic cop" for the warehouse/distribution center. The WCS is responsible for keeping everything running smoothly, maximizing the efficiency of the material handling subsystems, and overseeing the activities of the warehouse associates themselves. It provides a uniform interface to a broad range of material handling equipment such as AS/RS, carousels, conveyor systems, sorters, and palletizers.

The newsletter also reviewed several other examples of WCS in the news including an example of one large distribution which ships more than 135 million units a year.  The company implemented a WCS to synchronize manual processes, like full pallet and pick-to-pallet picking operations, with a voice-driven piece picking operation that also used conveyor and a sliding shoe sortation system. The WCS also updated the warehouse management system (WMS) in real-time, ensuring that all of the components of an order arrive at the dock at the right time to get best-selling titles to retail and wholesale booksellers.
