Cincinnati, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/06/2014 -- The second issue of “WCS News” (a weekly e-newsletter) addresses the critical aspects of managing the demands of any distribution center's fulfillment requirements. This includes basic automation of manual processes to advanced automated material handling systems. The value proposition of robust warehouse control systems (WCS) was discussed including intelligent sortation logic, dynamic routing, inline scale interaction, data logging, and non-standard/seasonal operations capabilities.
Other topics addressed in the next issue of the e-newsletter include the space required to access and pick SKUs as counts increase. 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 August 11th issue also looks at the fact that picking errors lead to customer dissatisfaction and higher costs. Adoption of product-to-person technologies will improve both speed and accuracy. Distribution center (DC) managers need to know exactly where every item is located in the DC as well as the ongoing status of the order fulfillment process.
