WCS News also highlights the relationship between SKU count increases and space requirements. As SKU count increases, so does the space required to access (pick) them. Slow movers, which make up the majority of SKUs, are taking up more and more space. Outside storage is costly and inefficient. More efficient internal storage and picking methods are needed.
The upcoming WCS News also clarifies the new phrase Warehouse Execution Software (WES) is not a new breed of warehouse software. It is the effort of marketing professionals to create product differentiation where none exists. Best-of-breed WCS solutions meet the demand, flexibility, and versatility by bridging people and automation.
Issue 3 of WCS News will be available on August 18th and will addresses the value proposition of robust warehouse control systems.
