Basic Concepts

In the following pages we will go over the basic concepts that are important to understand in order to get full benefit out of the system. The most important issues are:

  • Where and how an article is placed in the warehouse.
  • Information on the goods  In order to optimally manage the warehouse optimally, SHARK needs some basic information about the articles to be stored. This information is kept in SHARK's goods database.
  • Orders and transactions. The work to be done in the warehouse is typically managed by orders from a host system.
  • The work processes such as article picking, put-away, receiving of articles, consolidation, shipment, stock-counting and internal stock maintenance.
