WCS, WES, WMS – What software solutions do what? There is no concrete definition or agreement among those in the industry.
A Warehouse Management System (WMS) is responsible for a facility’s master inventory, and its flow into and out of the building. That includes product receipts, cycle counting, slotting, order creation and other high level functions.
A Warehouse Control System (WCS) runs automated systems inside your facility. A WCS handles order processing & completion, conveyor & machine control, container tracking & routing.
A Warehouse Execution System (WES) ecompasses functionality of both WCS and WMS. A WES is a more advanced iteration of a WCS. A WES not only performs all of the tasks a WCS does, it also provides advanced decision capability and inventory control in coordination with a WMS.
