Impact of Warehouse Management Software on Supply Chain Management
Supply chain management is an important aspect to consider for individuals engaged with operation of warehouse facility. The warehouse management software system can properly control movement and storage of goods and can maintain an updated inventory on a real time analysis which can be highly assisting for a warehouse owner. This software is enabled with special features which can display any transaction involving warehouse goods in seconds.
A user can access the shipment, receipt, picking of correct goods, and packing or ordered items by using this software. This software system can also advise you about the latest inventory and thereby can provide you with an early notice about which bins needs to be filled. This software works on highly advanced computer algorithms which allow it to handle stock receipts and track any return of goods back to the warehouse. It can provide an owner with a complete representation of the warehouse facility anytime and can also suggest for improvements like proper rack spacing etc..
Most of these systems use technology which falls under the category of ‘Auto ID Data Capture’ or commonly known as ADIC. Such technology can capture and read bar codes, access local area networks and radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. This software is available as either ‘stand-alone supply chain execution program’ or ‘enterprise resource planning’ configuration. The former configuration performs all necessary tasks of warehouse management whereas the later configuration is integrated across an organization’s complete network. The former ones are basically components of larger systems.
Proper management involves movement, storage and tracking of goods in a warehouse, and once this is achieved successfully, the profits of an organization shoot up right away. This software reduces overhead costs and extra labor charges thereby effective for management. You can avoid over-stockade or under-stockade of goods by using this software.
