+* WCS = Warehouse Control System: talks to the [Programmable Logic Controllers = PLCs](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programmable_logic_controller) ( runs conveyors, cranes, etc.).
+* WMS = Warehouse Management System creates the accounting transactions through an integration to the Enterprise Resource Planning system = ERP. Some data (e.g. master data) about the products also comes in from ERP.
+1. When the product is brought in from the truck it is checked in via [RFID](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio-frequency_identification). OV now takes possession of the goods, and the inventory goes into a Received status.
+2. A fork lift driver brings the pallet over to a staging area, near the Infeed, at which point it goes into a Staged status.
+3. A fork lift moves the pallet onto the infeed conveyor, it now goes into an Infeed status
+4. The ASRS (automated storage and retrieval system) moves the pallet into storage and notifies the WMS that it is put away. The pallet goes into a ASRS status. The WMS has no idea where exactly the pallet is. Only the WCS knows.
