The logistics control centre is a tool for monitoring and controlling operational procedures. The WMS provides the user with key warehouse figures and information on the logistic and/or warehouse-relevant processes. In more complex situations, a control centre continually visualises and analyses the key figures and logistic processes, identifies deviations from the target and recommends actions to the user. A detailed description of the control centre functionality can be found in standard VDI 4493 Part 1. Relevant key figures for warehouse logistics are found in standard VDI 4490.
