Reviews for 'Application Development, Integration and Management - Others'
Gartner defines a warehouse management system (WMS) as "a software application that helps manage the operations of a warehouse or distribution center (DC)." WMS applications offer capabilities such as receiving, put-away, stock locating, inventory management, cycle counting, task interleaving, wave planning, order allocation, order picking, replenishment, packing, shipping, labor management and automated materials-handling equipment interfaces. These systems incorporate mobile devices along with bar code and, possibly, RFID scanning/sensing to form the transactional foundation of a WMS. Gartner includes integrated functionality what we refer to as extended WMS capabilities as components of a WMS evaluation. These include labor management, slotting, yard management, voice picking, parcel manifesting, value-added services, light manufacturing/kitting and third-party logistics (3PL) billing. We do not, however, consider stand-alone solutions in these areas as part of this market
