Warehouse Control System acts as the “traffic police” for your warehouse or distribution center to keep everything in order.

A warehouse control system (WCS) is an application for organizing the processes and workflows in a fulfillment or distribution center. The WCS creates an ecosystem by coordinating with all the material handling equipment like conveyors, DWS systems, put to light systems, print & apply systems and sorters. Whenever a task needs to be accomplished, the WCS creates a logical workflow and directs all the equipment to work collectively to achieve the desired result.

SOME OF THE MAIN FUNCTIONS OF OUR WCS SYSTEM
  • Passing on data to WMS and exchange of information to manage the day to day activities

  • Giving directions to all the material handling systems and coordinating between them to achieve the desired result

  • Sharing real time data with the operators and the PLCs to accomplish the tasks like sorting, conveying, picking etc.

  • Gathering statistics data about the performance levels which will help to maintain maximum equipment uptime.

  • Generating detailed report of the results which can be used by other host systems

  • Releasing the orders in sequence after checking the incoming & outgoing items, to have an uninterrupted and continuous flow.

THE CONTROL HIERARCHY 

WMS (Planning): This controls the incoming and outgoing inventories and performs tasks like receiving orders from the customers, assigning inventory, creating invoices and shipping labels etc. It interacts and exchanges the details with WCS, but on a non-real time basis.

WCS (Control): This is the main traffic cop which manages and interfaces data on real time basis. It receives the data from the WMS, directs and coordinates with systems like conveyors, sorters, print & apply systems to accomplish the tasks.

WES (Execution): It’s a hybrid system which performs some combined tasks of WMS and WES. The WES organise sequences and coordinates between the man and machine to move items inside the warehouse.
