WMS Network Design Document Proposal 5 Project outline The warehouse management system is the main process whereby the warehouse division maintains various products of customers, and utilizes processes so that items can be received and orders for customers can be picked and shipped out in a timely matter. Some of the processes/tasks that get performed are inbound shipments that need to get into the system for inventory, manually generate customer orders for outbounds which would need to be picked from a generated order by personnel and packaged on pallets with the correct lots for each item, this ensures the inventory is being properly rotated using the first in first out (FIFO) logic, and maintain an accurate inventory for customer reporting and availability of products. Structure of the company The structure of the company consists of the main Corporate headquarters, the building is a four-level structure built over top of a two hundred bay dock. The building serves as a main hub and also a truck loading location. There are roughly four hundred employees working at this single location which include, IT Department, office of the CEO, human resources and accounting, accounts receivable and billing department, asset protection, along with a fully equipped maintenance department to fix all equipment inhouse.
