The Savanna.NET® WES Design Philosophy
Westfalia Technologies’ Savanna.NET® Warehouse Execution System (WES) is a tightly integrated Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Warehouse Control System (WCS) solution. As a system-wide software solution, Savanna.NET® directs, controls and optimizes material flow within and between warehouses. Operative control includes optimizing paths throughout the system – from inventory creation through shipment – keeping your inventory organized in the most efficient manner. Savanna.NET® accompanies these warehousing processes using a corresponding flow of real-time information, ensuring data security and stock transparency. Furthermore, the application provides the information necessary for analysis and management control in a clear and concise manner.
The Savanna.NET® WES enables companies of any size to implement only the functionality needed to address their warehousing process needs. Its functionality is also easily enhanced by client-driven customizations.
While a WES is able to replace WMS and WCS applications altogether, its flexibility allows for various deployment options. For those with an existing WMS looking to introduce a WCS to assist in automation, it is best to opt for a WES instead. This allows the company to continue using its familiar WMS, integrate it with the WES, and the enable the WCS functionality. Alternatively, if an organization has not yet introduced automation warranting a WCS, they are still able to implement a WES, only utilize the WMS capabilities, and then "turn on" the WCS functionality when needed. This allows operators to utilize a familiar user interface, reduce training time and shorten the system start-up duration.
