WCS warehouse management system

Warehouse management tasks are centrally processed by WMS system, while task dividing, equipment monitoring, task processing, etc. are processed by WCS system. As for WCS, WMS first sends tasks to WCS in batch, then based on the requirement of optimizing process, WCS divides and sends them to the corresponding equipment according to the running condition of automated equipment.
