It gets chaotic - despite or because of ERP software

Static storage, where everything has its own place, is classic. One variant is the Dynamic - or chaotic - warehousing. Here, storage spaces are used by the ERP Software automatically. Therefore, it is also possible that the same articles are stored in different places, ergo can only be found by the system. A system that works with dynamic warehousing must therefore also include individual factors in the planning. Weight or size can play a role here. But also the Order picking must be controlled automatically by the system. Therefore, companies that work with dynamic warehousing are dependent on a system that works error-free and in real time. For this reason, it makes sense for companies to invest in a solution that is tailored to their needs. This effort is relevant for Pursue who are dependent on spatially comprehensive warehousing and whose warehouse therefore often becomes confusing.

A good data set can tell a lot about the efficiency of the warehouse management. Thereby the metrics be defined accordingly, such as throughput times, routing analysis or packing performance.
