Understand how a Labor Management System fits into the supply chain

A labor management system (LMS) is a software and engineering system used to maximize employee performance, productivity and warehouse utilization. The key to making a LMS program launch a success is keeping the lines of communication open and making sure the associates are kept in the loop at every step.
