The Savanna.NET® WCS Functionality:
The Savanna.NET® WES Warehouse Control System (WCS) functions directly control the real-time activities of automated material handling equipment, such as equipment control and storage optimization for product retrieval. Automation requires WCS functionality; without automation, there is no need for a WCS. An effective WCS provides functionality allowing the operator to optimize their application and material handling investment, while improving the efficiency of their operations.
The Savanna.NET® WES allows users to enable or disable the WCS functions as needed. This approach allows companies to implement an integrated WMS and WCS solution, while only using the functionality needed at the time. As automation is introduced, the WCS functionality can be enabled, thus saving time, training and other costs associated with buying a new system.
