Warehouse Management System (WMS)

Definition - What does Warehouse Management System (WMS) mean?

A warehouse management system (WMS) is an enterprise software application that automates and manages the processes of an organization’s warehouse. WMS provides a centralized software interface for processing, managing and monitoring a warehouse's operational processes.

Warehouse management system may also be called an inventory management system and store management system.

Techopedia explains Warehouse Management System (WMS)

A warehouse management system provides a suite of features and services that address a comprehensive set of warehouse operations. Although each WMS might provide different secondary level services, the primary features of a WMS are centered on inventory management. A typical WMS may provide features such as inventory record management, inventory shipment details, stock location within the warehouse and overall warehouse capacity management. WMS is generally a part of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solution, but it can also be a standalone application. Moreover, a WMS is generally directly integrated with other information systems such as supply chain management system, production/manufacturing information system and sales information systems.
