dbo:abstract
  • Warehouse Execution Systems (WES) are computerized systems used in distribution operations (Logistics) and are functionally equivalent to a manufacturing execution system or MES. Distribution operations are a form of a manufacturing operation that receive, store and track inbound material and then select and combine (assemble) various materials to form a finished product, order, or shipment. Features of both a WES and MES track and control work process. WES software organizes, sequences and synchronizes work resources necessary to complete the assembly and shipment of finished product. WES works in real time to enable the control of multiple elements of the production process (e.g. inputs, personnel, machines and support services) where changing conditions in one work process may require changing the directions of upstream or downstream processes (reactive). The WES is an intermediate step between an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, warehouse management system WMS and the resources necessary to perform the various tasks. These resources include workers as well as process control systems. The WES communicates with resources to collect information and direct work effort. (en)
