Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Warehouse Management System?
A warehouse management system is a specialized software designed to track inventory and manage the warehouse operation processes, making the running of warehouse operations easy and efficient. One of the misconceptions about warehouse management system is that the software is only for recording inventory balances in the bin locations within a warehouse.

What are the goals of a Warehouse Management System?
The warehouse management system (WMS) is critical for any warehouse or distribution center. The WMS aims to optimize the flow of goods through the warehouse, from receiving to shipping. In this blog post, we will discuss the goals of a warehouse management system and how it can help your business achieve its goals.
How can WMS help your business?
A Warehouse Management System (WMS) can assist a business in automating tasks, optimizing inventory storage and retrieval processes, refining order processing, and fostering improved interdepartmental communication. With real-time inventory visibility, streamlining operations, reducing errors, and ultimately improving customer satisfaction through timely and precise deliveries.
What are Receiving Rules in a WMS
Receiving rules are business rules when warehouses receive inventory from suppliers. For example, whether to accept or reject over receiving of an ordered item. The warehouse management system is to assist warehouse operation to manage the processes. Because garbage in will always result in garbage out, hence receiving inventory into the warehouse is the most critical step in a warehouse operation.
What is Put Away?
A putaway is a process after receiving the inventory into the warehouse, the inventory then needs to store into the warehouse. So the process of moving the inventory from the receiving area into the storage locations, are then referred to as putaway process. It is a very important process in a warehouse management system.
What is a Pickface?
A "Pickface" (also referred to as a forward-picking location) is a location in a warehouse usually setup for loose pick activities. Loose-pick means picking quantity is less than one (1) pallet. These can be carton picks or inner pack picks or each picks.
What is Wave Planning?
If you play “Tower Defense” games, you understand that enemies attack you in groups by waves. But why? Why don't the game designers make all the enemies attack you at once? Because that would take away the fun, the fun of strategizing, planning and executing.
What is Replenishment?
Replenishment is a process where stocks stored at non-pickface locations(also referred to as reserved locations or bulk locations) are sent to the pickface locations within the warehouse. A pickface(also referred to as a Forward Location) is a location set up for loose picking. Loose pick usually means picking for less than a carton quantity, and often loose pick can also mean less than a pallet quantity pick.
What are Picking & Packing?
The Picking process in a warehouse management system is about task execution. After running a wave in the WMS (Warehouse Management System), a list of tasks are generated in the system waiting to be carried out. When the warehouse operation decides to work on these pick tasks, the wave is then “released”.
What's Sorting in WMS?
The sorting process is an essential part of warehouse management. Sorting applies to both the inbound receiving of goods and the outbound picking of inventory. When goods are received, they must be sorted and placed in the correct location. Similarly, when products are picked for distribution to customers, they must be sorted and placed in containers that are appropriate for their destination.
What are Loading & Shipping?
Loading process is to load the physical inventory into a truck or a container, where shipping is to confirm the inventory loaded into the truck has already left the warehouse. The difference is that after loading, the inventory is still in a warehouse, but after shipping, the inventory is no longer in the warehouse.
What is the difference between Stock Take and Cycle Count?
Warehouses perform “Stock Take” when they want to count all their inventory stored in the warehouses and compare the physical count result with the records in the warehouse management system (WMS). Cycle count is to physical count specific products, batches, locations or stock conditions (for example high-value items). For example, counting from row 1 to row 2 is a cycle count. The term “wall to wall count” means to count everything in the warehouse, which means “Stocktake”.
What are the components of a WMS?
A WMS comprises several vital components, each serving a distinct purpose. The six main components include Order Management, Inventory Management, Pick Efficiency, Real-Time Inventory, Shipping and Order Fulfillment, and Labour Management. Let's explore the role of each.
