What is a WMS?


A Warehouse Management System (WMS) is an integrated hardware and software solution designed to control the movement and storage of materials within a warehouse and process the associated transactions, including shipping, receiving, putaway and picking. The objective of warehousing management is to optimize the cost of timely order fulfillment by managing the resources economically. A WMS must be flexible to change so it can easily adapt to fluctuating customer demands, evolving technological advances, and Continuous Improvement efforts.
