While some believe that the Warehouse Management space is mature, others continue to invest in the rapidly evolving landscape of distribution robotics.

A case in point are Order Fulfillment Systems in which the WMS directly controls picking sub-systems such as Voice, pick carts, put walls and pick-to-light without the need for any additional third-party control software.

This provides significant benefits to distribution operations, such as dramatically lowering hardware costs for the picking sub-systems and devices, eliminating the need for integration between the WMS and the picking system control software, and enabling enhanced optimization of the end-to-end picking process through complete control with one system.

Current WMS research includes areas such areas as capturing and utilizing demand signals from IOT devices, use of next-generation real-time location systems in the DC and leveraging machine learning techniques in the WMS.
