Warehouse Management System Implementation

Design sessions in a Warehouse Management System (WMS) implementation cycle are often incomplete - requirements are missed, individuals attending may not be the right ones, others may not be adequately prepared, and system capabilities are not always known up front.

This can lead to extended project timelines, additional costs, and implementations with a compromised “end” state.

WMS Implementation Pre-Design

The typical software implementation cycle consists of some form of the following phases - Design, Configuration, Development, System/Integration Testing, User Acceptance Testing, Training, and ultimately, Go-Live of the application.

The Design phase has always seemed to be the “start” of the implementation process, but is it really?

Consider challenging what has traditionally been the status quo for an implementation and learn how some advanced preparation will help achieve a higher level of success in the Design phase and beyond.

In this white paper from Veridian, you’ll learn:

The Components of the Pre-Design Phase

  • Participant Planning
  • Subject Matter Expert (SME) Preparation
  • Application Access

Pre-Design is a time period intended to take the necessary steps to ensure greater overall success in the Design phase.
