Running your warehouse or distribution center with efficiency for high profits can be challenging in a fast paced, demanding environment. Realizing the full potential of your warehouse software is critical to achieving success with order fill accuracy, efficiency and profitability. If you are struggling to realize your full potential and looking for warehouse software with real time control, you should learn how a warehouse control and execution software system can take your warehouse management to the next level.
Difference Between Warehouse Management and Warehouse Control
You may be thinking of replacing your current warehouse management software, or maybe you are considering hiring additional labor to fill the void between order planning and execution? This is where knowing the difference between a warehouse management system (WMS) and warehouse control system (WCS) is vital to achieving maximum profitability.
A WMS typically focuses on broad activities, such as processes and people, and is helpful to schedule labor in relation to order fulfillment requirements and inventory. The key function of a WMS is to act as a business planning system, and usually does not operate in real time, nor does it provide any control over automated equipment.
Achieve Efficiency, Accuracy and Profits with Warehouse Control System
A WCS will interface with your WMS, providing control & execution of material handling systems such as sorters, automated conveyors, carousels and a host of other automated equipment. The WMS will tell you what you need to have, when and where you need to have it, but if something changes and creates a bottleneck in your process, a WMS won’t adapt to the new situation.
A warehouse control and execution system will prevent a bottleneck in the first place by adapting to situations in real time, and telling your equipment how to respond for the most streamlined operation. This powerful warehouse software acts like a floor supervisor, directing your equipment and labor to work in the most efficient manner with accuracy and consistency.
