Applying Warehouse Management Technology Within A Manufacturing Environment

Warehouse Management Systems: They Are Not Just For Distribution Anymore 

Today’s modern supply chain typically focuses the application of Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) technology on the automation of the outbound finished goods process. Industry leaders, however, have realized significant returns by applying that same WMS technology to more efficiently and accurately manage the inbound flow of raw materials through the manufacturing process, a.k.a. Production Logistics. 

The supply chain is, after all, often defined as the flow of resources into and out of the enterprise’s collective operations. Logistics is the part of the supply chain process that plans, implements, and controls the flow and storage of goods, services, and related information from a point of origin to a point of consumption in order to meet customer demand. Production Logistics manages the progressive stages of track and trace, beginning with the inbound transportation of raw materials from suppliers to a processing facility through to the delivery and consumption of that material as it is transformed into finished goods.
