Recently, some warehouse managers of electronic factories are struggling with a problem: whether to choose WMS or invoicing system for the warehouse management system of electronic factories. The most intuitive expectation is: I hope to help the electronics factory warehouse management, transparent warehousing and inventory, and accelerate the corresponding degree of logistics and customers. Then, in front of these two electronic factory warehouse management systems, who is the more suitable choice between WMS and inventory? Don’t worry, let’s have an in-depth understanding of three problems. First, what are the problems in the warehouse management of your electronics factory? What is WMS mainly responsible for in the warehouse management system of electronic factory? What is the main function of the purchase, sale and inventory software in the electronic factory warehouse management system?
Don’t always think that warehouse inventory and management are lagging behind. In fact, they have worked very hard. Therefore, problems can be solved only when problems are found, so we must first clarify: what problems exist in the warehouse management of your electronics factory? There are many kinds and quantities of parts and components, and the multi-attribute management is difficult; Long delivery cycle, high risk, material inventory is easy to stagnate; Less internal information, opaque, difficult to trace the use of raw materials Or what else? Therefore, we must first understand the current situation and pain points of warehouse management in electronic factories, so as to lay a good foundation for the following choices.
Just as acloudear, an expert in digital transformation of high-tech industry and a platinum partner of sap, pointed out in its “acloudear white paper on digital transformation of high-tech enterprises” that it is feasible to understand the current situation and pain points of warehouse management in electronic factories, and then choose a targeted warehouse management system in electronic factories.
Although WMS warehouse management system and purchase, sales and inventory software both contain warehouse management modules, they play a very different role in material warehousing, warehouse rent billing and so on. Purchase, sales and inventory software is mainly used to record, check and manage warehouse operation results, such as registering material data and printing documents when goods are in and out of the warehouse; WMS management system needs to do intelligent analysis of the warehouse situation before business operation, for example, providing a scheme for placing materials in multiple storage positions when they are put into storage, which is often impossible for purchase, sales and inventory software. In short, purchase, sales and inventory software is the “post record” of business data, and WMS is the “process guide” of warehouse management. How do you choose?
According to their own electronic factory warehouse management pain point actual and future development needs, to choose the corresponding electronic factory warehouse management system. There is no fixed standard configuration whether to choose or not. Enterprises are more inclined to improve the efficiency of internal procurement, purchase, sales and other processes, or to provide refined and intelligent guidance for warehouse management. These priorities affect the adaptability of enterprises and management systems. In response, experts said: we might as well refer to the choice of 14000 related enterprises covering almost most of the electronics industry.
When we refer to sap, the management master behind the world’s top 500, we can draw a conclusion: in the future enterprise overall operation cloud scheme architecture proposed by SAP, from material demand planning, supply chain design to inventory evaluation, warehousing management is everywhere. The intelligent process oriented warehousing management mode of SAP cloud products can accurately track production procedures and make the operation process more standardized, accurate and transparent.
Combined with SAP cloud product inventory management solution, it provides perfect batch management function for material management. From the management of material receipt, stock in and stock out, for materials with batch management enabled, all inventory movements need to enter batch numbers, which means that material warehousing has strong traceability, and distribution plans can be better connected with third parties.
In fact, if only from the perspective of electronic factory warehouse management, it is not difficult to find a suitable software. What is the difficulty? It is difficult for warehouse managers in electronic factories. How to comprehensively consider the core value and significance of warehouse management for enterprise operation from the aspects of industry, enterprise, task chain and business is the difficult problem that managers should carefully consider.
