Wireless Control System ( WCS ) / Warehouse Management System ( WMS
A warehouse control system (WCS) is a software application that

centers (DC). As the “traffic cop” for the warehouse/distribution
center, the WCS is responsible for keeping everything running
smoothly, maximizing the efficiency of the material handling
subsystems and often, the activities of the warehouse associates
themselves. It provides a uniform interface to a broad range of
material handling equipment such as AS/RS, carousels, conveyor
systems, sorters, palletizers, etc.
A warehouse management system (WMS) is a software application,
designed to support warehouse or distribution center management and
staff. They facilitate management in their daily planning,
organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling the utilization of

out of a warehouse, while supporting staff in the performance of
material movement and storage in and around a warehouse.
