Press Release Summary: WCS (Warehouse Control Systems) Lead by QC Software in New Directory
Press Release Body: The warehouse control system enables an automated warehouse or distribution center to reach peak operating performance. These new technologies remove the inefficiencies commonly associated with under or over element of lean manufacturing and elimination of waste, a warehouse control system pulls product through an automated warehouse or distribution center increasing overall productivity and throughput.
Jerry List, Vice President of Cincinnati, Ohio-based QC Software (www.qcsoftware.com) recently noted that the company's inclusion in the new directory, "Premier List of Warehousing Software" compiled by Philip Obal for Industrial Data & Information.
According to the author the following personnel in an organization can benefit from this publication: Consultants, Integrators, Information Technology Management, Operation Management, Purchasing Management, Logistics Management, Customer Service Management, 3rd Party Logistics providers, 3rd Party Fulfillment, and owners of the company who are involved in the search for warehouse software.
Some solutions offer that the key to the optimization of material flow by warehouse automation is tracking key performance indicators such as the current and anticipated workloads at workstations in order to make key material routing decisions; inbound and outbound order tasks to make key material release decisions.
Obal suggests that Warehouse Control System is software that directs the material handling equipment via PLC's and controllers. Sorters, diverters, AS/RS, carousels, robots, and other ME types are controlled by the software. The MHE will perform the operations and the WCS will notify the WMS/ERP system that it has accomplished that task. WCS is used in high volume warehouses and manufacturing plants with heavy automation.
