Distributed Warehouse Management System

Overview of the Distributed Warehouse Management System

The Oracle Warehouse Management System (WMS) is an integral part of the Oracle E-Business Suite comprised of transaction source systems, like Oracle Purchasing and Oracle Order Management, and execution systems, like WMS, residing and operating within the same instance. This integrated solution eliminates the need for reference and transaction data integrations which are typically required when WMS is implemented as a "bolted-on" solution (that is, installed independent from the E-Business Suite).

However, when a business is required to implement Oracle EBS WMS outside the framework of the E-Business solution, Oracle Warehouse Management provides a distributed deployment option that supports all the routine warehouse and inventory functions currently available in the E-Business suite. This solution enables WMS to be independent from the enterprise resource planning (ERP) instance while still capable of serving multiple independent warehouses or organizations.
