Expiration Date Management:
An inventory control technique that is triggered by a product’s expiration date. The WMS should provide the ability to automatically calculate an expiration date by product category, based on an actual manufacturing date, or often the received date as a proxy. The WMS would then enforce the different rules customers have defined relative to that product’s shelf life in the inventory allocation process. It should also provide different tools to view the product in a DC by remaining shelf life.
