Modula: WMS and Automatic Vertical Storage Systems
The Warehouse Management System (WMS) is the software that supports operators in the management of a warehouse:
- From the control of incoming goods
- To the management of goods during the storage phase
- Through the preparation of shipments to customers (or departments)
Thus, keeping track of each item during each phase of the production process and much more.
The WMS facilitates the management of all aspects of a warehouse, whether manual or automated, from the information regarding items to the systems designed to support picking operations, through the tracking of all goods that are not even stored but pass through the warehouse during the manufacturing process.
Modula’s WMS can also manage orders and direct requests to the manual warehouse, direct to the Modula vertical lift machine or to both.
The WMS transfers the order page assigned to the RF terminal and the terminal then becomes associated with that order.
The terminal receives all the information for the picking through the respective control, so that the picking operation can be easily executed.
