All the 5 main processes of a warehouse
management system are taken care off ,
First comes the Inbound process
Pre Receipt Notification, Recording and Tracking:
Receipts have name of item, their
quantity, Its UOM (Unit of Measurement) and all the information
related to that specific item. Serial no, Lot no, manufacturing
and expiration dates, statuses of various inventory statuses,
rules of default receipt status these elements should be
tracked. For getting speedy inbound process we need to reduce
entering the information manually. Pre receipt process is
When the goods are arrived , we tally
the delivery challan with the ASN or PO we verify weather the
quantity is same , if it varies further updation takes place
after this a unique serial number is allotted to every good and
then they are processed for quality check .
Quality of the good received in the
warehouse is checked and if the quality of the goods fails they
are rejected and submitted in the damaged zone
Put away is finally moving the goods to
their respected bins. It includes barcoded information about the
SKU (stock keeping unit).
This keeps the record of all the
inventories and hence is used for viewing inventory.
This is one of the most important
process in inbound as well as outbound. Some products have their
expiry dates. Hence this is one of the crucial part of outbound
process so that customer would be able to get best product in
case of its quality.
Sales order is an indication for the
customer that he is ready to purchase products.
Pick and Pack:
The picking process starts by allotting
a picker with a pick list who then goes to the respective bin
and pick the particular USN as mentioned in the list, then that
good is moved further to the packaging area with invoice.
However in packaging area items are prepared for shipment by
packing them .
The final step includes the
transportation of the good which provides a tracking number
which is further used for tracking the shipment.
RTO (return to office)
The RTO process comes when the product
is returned by the customer , at this stage when the product is
received at the warehouse the quality check is taken place and
at this stage if the product is damaged it is send to the
damaged zone else it is restocked in the inventory bins
RTV (return to vendor)
The return to vendor process comes when
at inbound process the quality process takes place and the goods
doesn't match the ASN or PO ie. there might be change in
quality, quantity or at any other platform . then the same
product Is filed for returning it back to the vendor.
