How a warehouse control system works

A warehouse control system (WCS) is a software application for managing and controlling material handling systems. It’s the link between the warehouse management system (WMS) and intralogistics systems. The WCS is responsible for the efficient and correct operation of conveyors, shuttles, pick-to-ligh systems, AGV’s and AS/S systems, among others. Based on predetermined data and real-time data, the WCS controls the various systems. The software also continiously monitors performance, so that quick and appropriate action can be taken if necessary. This ensures optimum utilization of the systems and maximum efficiency.
