Cincinnati, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/28/2014 -- QC Software is featured in the current issue of AutomationsMedia.com online magazine. Manufacturing journalist and author, Thomas R. Cutler, discussed the confusion when to apply a WMS software solution versus a WCS. According to Jerry List, Vice President of QC Software, “WCS directs real-time data management and interface responsibilities of the material handling system as well as provides common user interface screens for monitoring, control, and diagnostics.”
List explained that there is a place for both warehouse management systems (WMS) and warehouse control systems (WCS). Often a WCS executes instructions provided by an upper-level host system, such as an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system or a WMS system. Tier-one WCS software provides advanced management capabilities including inventory control, resource scheduling and order management. The best-of-breed WCS systems are modular in nature, easily configurable and platform independent, with a scalable architecture to satisfy the needs of any size warehouse.
Companies experiencing exponential growth are re-engineering distribution operations. Companies are implementing a third fully automated picking line which enables the output to double. June 10th at Noon EST there will be a comprehensive discussion about when to choose WCS or WMS. The webinar is free of charge and hosted by QC Software.
