ABSTRACT
Two aspects determine the performance of a modern Warehouse Management System (WMS). The first of these is the sophistication of its store control features. The second is the effectiveness of the interfaces through which it communicates with the installation's automated equipment, site operatives, host network and the relevant manufacturing or marketing personnel. The storage, retrieval and even the handling products are influenced by the set of parameters by which they are categorized. Locking has an important role to play in stock control. For the purpose of stocktaking, individual products can be frozen wherever they happen to be on reception, storage order preparation or dispatch. Any WMS should strive to meet the specific needs of its clients with respect to performance, security, real-time management, stock traceability and evolution. It should enable the generation of audit trails in every case listing who had access to it and who was responsible for it.
