Warehouse management – SMM

Warehouse management

In combination with other modules (Marketing, Research and development, Production), the Warehouse management module (material commerce) is the foundation of the entire supply process, where acquisitions are required.

Warehouse management

In most cases, close cooperation with the modules Finances is required, but this link can be disconnected if necessary. This way, the Warehouse management module can work independently.

The main functions included in this module, are:

  • Planning the material consumption
  • Storage operations and stock management
  • Material records
  • Spare-part classification (enables searching by stock and suppliers)

Warehouse management

The vital function of the Storage module is the spare-part classification. This allows the modules Marketing, Research and development and Production to search for existing (known) spare-parts and components, currently in stock. A structural classification key is used. This key is a combination of the identification number (most appropriate criteria for the production department) and a rich functional and shapely description (most appropriate criteria for the development department). An effective classification key makes the typification of spare-parts and sub-assemblies possible and makes quick and effective search of known parts possible.
