It ensures that warehouse operations are aligned with inventory levels and demand forecasts, leading to optimal inventory management.

 

  1. Order Management Module: The WMS module integrates with the order management module to receive order information, prioritize orders based on fulfillment rules, and update order status. This integration ensures efficient order processing and accurate order fulfillment within the warehouse.

 

  1. Procurement Module: The WMS module interacts with the procurement module to receive purchase order information, track inbound shipments, and update inventory records upon receipt of goods. This integration enables seamless coordination between procurement activities and warehouse operations.

 

### Formulas

While the WMS module primarily focuses on process automation and warehouse optimization, it also utilizes various formulas and calculations to support decision-making and operational efficiency. Here are some commonly used formulas within the module:

 

  1. Inventory Turnover Formula: Inventory Turnover = Cost of Goods Sold / Average Inventory Value

   – This formula measures how efficiently inventory is managed and replenished by calculating the number of times inventory is sold and replaced within a specific period.

 

  1. Pick Accuracy Formula: Pick Accuracy = (Number of Accurate Picks / Total Number of Picks)  100

   – The pick accuracy formula calculates the percentage of accurate picks made within the warehouse. It helps measure order fulfillment accuracy and identify areas for improvement in the picking process.

 

  1. Warehouse Space Utilization Formula: Warehouse Space Utilization = (Used Warehouse Space / Total Warehouse Space)  100

   – This formula calculates the percentage of warehouse space being utilized. It helps organizations assess their warehouse capacity utilization and make informed decisions regarding warehouse layout and storage optimization.

 

These formulas provide valuable insights and support decision-making related to inventory management, order fulfillment accuracy, and warehouse space utilization.

 

### Conclusion

The Warehouse Management System module of our ERP system empowers organizations to optimize their warehouse operations, improve inventory management, and enhance order fulfillment accuracy. By integrating seamlessly with other modules, it ensures efficient collaboration and data flow across various functions. With its advanced features and powerful formulas, our WMS module helps organizations achieve warehouse excellence, reduce costs, and deliver exceptional customer satisfaction.
