What is a Warehouse Control System?

A warehouse control system (WCS) is a software platform that coordinates and directs a wide range of warehouse receiving and fulfillment activities. The WCS is typically integrated with a warehouse management system (WMS) and/or enterprise resource planning system (ERP), as well as a wide range of warehouse automation technology including material handling equipment types such as conveyor systems, warehouse robots, carousels, automated storage and retrieval (ASRS) systems, sortation systems, palletizers and more. The WCS receives order and product information from the WMS/ERP system and coordinates the timing and tasks of the facility’s equipment and staff.

The Numina Group’s RDS WCS solution is differentiated by its advanced real-time control capabilities and added warehouse execution functionality, all on one unified platform.
