The Net-WMS project proposes a software solution enabling the expected new generation of networked businesses WMS. Net-WMS will handle networked communication and co-operation processes through the integration of decision-making technologies, generic 3D placement primitives, virtual reality for 3D visualisation, interactivity to design packing models and knowledge modelling. The added-value and competitiveness increase of the Net-WMS solution will be characterised by shared expertise, easy deployment and maintenance, flexibility, interoperability, better resource handling and access to remote services..
