Work Order Management:

 

The processing of value-added services or even light assembly operations in the DC, either as part of the WMS or as an add-on module, allowing for the creation of planned jobs (work orders), and based on a bill of materials direct the movement of component inventories to the work order processing area. The packaging/assembly of the new goods will be directed, as well as inventories used or consumed as part of the process.

More advanced capabilities include support for multi-level bills of material, full cost calculation (labor and materials, including direct and packaging materials), and the ability to factor-in an expected scrap rate.
