Oracle Warehouse Management

NEXT GENERATION WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT FROM ORACLE

Over the past several years, Oracle has brought to bear the full force of its software research and development power to renew and deepen its Warehouse Management Solution (WMS). Now a leader in this arena, Oracle's investment has delivered hundreds of advanced features and offers unprecedented flexibility in deployment regardless of your existing application footprint.

Flexible Deployment Options
Oracle WMS's new distributed deployment capability is a true game changer in the field of enterprise warehouse management. It challenges the traditional idea of integration by providing a seamless, yet decoupled warehouse management solution. Oracle WMS can be deployed to power global operations independent of other enterprise systems—or tightly integrated with EBusiness Suite. It's your choice. So regardless of your version of E-Business Suite or host system, you can expect exceptional implementation flexibility, greater availability of mission-critical warehouse systems, and all the latest features we offer.

It's just part of the next generation WMS from Oracle.

Hundreds of Advanced Features
If you knew Oracle WMS in the past, then it's time to a new look at the many rich features, including:

  • Advanced Wave Planning—Minimizing material movements, optimizing labor resources, and tightly integrating warehouse activities with transportation planning;
  • Demand-Driven Replenishment of High-Volume Items—Minimizing labor movement, improving labor productivity, and reducing pick-time in outbound flows;
  • Cross-Docking—Synchronizing warehouse material handling with transportation activities, eliminating unnecessary inbound material handling steps, and increasing material velocity.

Oracle WMS's pre-integration with core enterprise processes, use of standards-based technologies, and extensive network of implementation partners are all part of our commitment to bring you the lowest total cost of ownership.

HIGHLIGHTS

Adapt to Volatility and Innovation
Your complex warehouse operations must adapt quickly and easily to changes. Your company is constantly innovating—and as your business model rapidly changes, the expectations for warehouses change, too. Whether because customers' changing behavior to conserve operating cash in a constrained credit market, or because your business decides to ship products with the longest remaining shelf-life to the best customers, your warehouse management systems must quickly respond.

Oracle's WMS delivers adaptive customer processes enabling your organization to make logistics a source of competitive differentiation.

Converge Multiple Value Chain Processes
Warehouses increasingly perform more and more functions—assembly, manufacturing, repair. They are part of extended value chain processes including transportation management, procurement, manufacturing, order management, spare parts and repair operations, asset management, and maintenance.

Oracle's WMS pre-integrates with the processes and applications driving these functions in your company. As a result, you get optimized execution of materials handling transactions on mobile and traditional terminals.

Scale in Complexity from Small to Large Operations
Customers demand the goods they want, when they want them, in perfect condition—and to their unique specification. Warehouses must handle more items, with greater velocity, in increasingly complex orders. To address these challenges, businesses need a robust and scalable solution. They need a solution that will help them to optimize their operations—no matter how large or small.

Oracle's WMS offers a broad range of materials management functionality from the most basic to the most advanced. No matter how big or small your operation, you will improve inventory accuracy and labor productivity while reducing overall warehousing and distribution costs.
