The book looks at the necessary steps for a warehouse or IT manager to take prior to a WMS program vendor involvement. From previous WMS program involvement for a warehouse projects, several factors became very apparent. These are (1) your warehouse team members must have clear understanding of what, when, how, why and where a WMS program benefits a warehouse and a WMS program impact on existing and future warehouse sku and customer order (CO) physical flow and activities and (2) your IT team have a basic understanding for a sku and (CO) flow through a warehouse and a WMS program impact on future & existing IT programs and sku & CO information flows . To assist in yourteam member WMS program understanding, your design team (1) Defines your warehouse with a WMS program, (2) Knows your sku purchase order flow, CO flow, vendor sku physical flow and CO sku physical flow, (3) States and Reviews your WMS program objectives, (4) Looks at some signals that identify your warehouse need for a WMS program & (5) Prepares for your warehouse to implement and use a WMS program. For your warehouse to receive all WMS program benefits, your design team has an understanding of all your warehouse (physical WMS ID skus & COs movements or flows) and WMS program (with WMS ID sku or CO and position scan transactions sent to a WMS program for update or information flows) WMS ID sku & CO update to track and account for an accurate sku inventory and CO status. To prepare your WMS program development and implementation, important concerns are (1) your existing ting vendor delivered sku and CO physical and information flows and projected future sku and CO volumes for your daily work hours, (2) understand various standard WMS rogram features for your proposed warehouse activities and sku & CO volumes, (3) what, why and how the requirement for modifications to a standard WMS program that includes time & cost for features implementation in your warehouse activities and WMS program, (4) select a project team & (5) establish your warehouse with a WMS program start-up and turn-over dates. When your plan is to implement a WMS program into your existing warehouse, more than likely your WMS ID sku or CO physical movements will continue over existing travel paths, between existing storage and pick positions and through your check, pack, manifest & ship activities. It is understood that your warehouse activities to complete transactions have potential modifications to assure WMS ID sku or CO status update in a WMS program. To assist in this project, you obtain existing warehouse drawings, written specifications, procedures, practices, policies & description of operations. You consider your IT host computer, warehouse material handling & scanning equipment and warehouse equipment computer capacity to handle your projected vendor delivery sku & CO process volumes and required information flows within the desired time period. As your warehouse transactions physically move a WMS ID sku between WMS ID positions & scan transactions that include sku quantities are sent to a WMS program for sku & position status update in a WMS computer. Warehouse activities & WMS program WMS ID sku tracking/accounting starts as vendor delivered or returns skus enter a warehouse. After a WMS computer releases COs to a pick activity, pick activity sends COs to a check, pack & manifest/ship area with scan transactions that are sent to a WMS computer for update. Warehouse activities occur on a daily basis and WMS ID skus or COs physically flow through the activities, WMS ID sku, quantities & COs scan transactions sent to a WMS program that tracks & accounts for a WMS ID sku or CO. On a daily basis, picked skus are readied for CO shipment, a completed CO is packaged, checked & manifested/loaded onto a freight delivery truck, a WMS ID CO is considered complete and received at a CO delivery address.
