Warehouse Control Systems (WCS)
In the past WCS systems simply provided control of conveyors and machinery with the possible integration of PC based SCADA and Operator Interfaces used for additional diagnostics and remote control. However the modern WCS with high performance Server, PCs and PLCs, integrated with high speed communications, provide the ability to extend the range of operations under their control and fulfil many of the back end operations within the warehouse , once considered only in the domain of Warehouse Management System (WMS).
IDC’s WCS solution extends this approach with the WCS integration of its wireless product range thus creating end to end visibility of operations and product flow in real time throughout the warehouse.
A central feature of the WCS is the application of overhead flat screens which provide warehouse operators with ability to interact the system in real time using ZB111 wireless hand scanners. In addition managers and supervisors have an immediate overview of the current status of warehouse operations
