Unil now, our focus has been on field mobility, but for the next few days we’re going to duck indoors and take a look at Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) product types and warehouse groupings.
Warehouse management systems (WMS) are used to manage the movement and storage of materials in a warehouse. There are three types of products: Tier 3, Tier 2, and Tier 1. Tier 3 warehouse management systems (WMS) are the least expensive type. They allow warehouse personnel to manage the flow of materials on conveyors and can be integrated into picking systems. Tier 2 WMS applications are more robust than Tier 3systems, but do not contain all of the features of a Tier 1 WMS. Typically, warehouse management systems (WMS) are used in large-scale or high-volume warehousing environments. Storage location management, automatic order selection, inventory control and replenishment, and shipping and receiving are common features.
