HowToImplement integrated WMS

  • Do your due diligence, perform an ROI calculation and keep that ROI focus

  • Document your goals and objectives / the problems you need to solve

  • Work closely with your vendor's implementation team to design the process

  • Create a thorough implementation project plan

  • Break it down into manageable pieces. Early successes = buy-in from your team

  • For a fluid install have a pre and post implementation plan to manage the production environment (go-live)

  • Test every function of the WMS to verify the setup; further testing is needed if modifications are required

  • Training users when they are not responsible for warehouse functions to get their full attention

  • Give your people pre-implementation practice time to get comfortable with the technology

  • Document procedures for later retrieval by end users

  • Assign personnel to manage the go-live that will work with users and troubleshoot
