growth prospects, continuous innovation, fair play and a great work culture makes Wipro an
exhilarating place to be in. Internship – Context and Introduction: Oracle Retail Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a software application, designed to support
warehouse or distribution center management and staff and enables companies to maximize their labor
and space utilization. Specifically designed to support the needs of distribution, manufacturing, asset-intensive, and
service businesses, WMS provides a single-platform across an entire global supply chain, with
complete visibility and control of orders and inventory throughout the distribution process. The main goal of a warehouse system is to manage the storage and the movement of the products within
the 4 walls of the warehouse (receiving, storage, picking and shipping) and completing value-added
services (like labeling, price-marking or kitting). The Warehouse main objectives are: - Prevent store “Out of Stock” – acting as a buffer. - Keep inventory as low as possible, always preventing store “out of Stock”. - To be the most efficient possible, providing as near as possible of JIT services, in order to
keep company inventory as low as possible. - Space utilization/warehouse layout – If you don\\\'t optimize storage systems, racking and
pallet patterns, the amount of space necessary to house inventory increases. Inefficient warehouse
layouts also cause unnecessary labor. For instance, if you have high-selling inventory in the back
of the facility, you’ll drive further more often than would be required if the warehouse layout
was better optimized. Internship - Goals: The space utilization is one of the major concerns of a warehouse system. Even so, WMS unlike other warehouse management apps, it’s not design to allow the setup of
multiple SKUs in one single picking location. The objective of this internship is to design and implement this new specification in order to be be
possible to: - Optimize picking operations, for warehouses that still have manual processes in place, there
tends to be no common route taken to pick items for shipment, which adds unnecessary time to the
process. With multiple SKUs in one location the routing is easily automated, reducing labor
force. - Optimize and accurate picking areas replenishment operation. Internship - Plan: This Information will be shared in a later stage. Innovation Aspects / Scientific Relevance: This Information will be shared in a later stage. Technologies: - PL-SQL - Oracle Forms - Oracle Data Base - Oracle Applications Server The list of technologies are not limited to the above list. We welcome new ideas and the creativity of the candidates that will integrate the project. Related links:
