Order Streaming technology, within Manhattan Active® Warehouse Management, takes a more intelligent approach to orchestration logic by constantly ensuring real-time alignment between orders to fulfill available inventory. Manhattan Active WM is also the first and only data-driven warehouse management solution that knows how to learn and adjust orchestration logic in real time to maximize asset utilization.

Wave and Waveless, Simultaneously 

With Order Streaming, operations don’t have to choose between wave and waveless processing, because the system does it all at the same time. That means when a request for a large block of work is submitted, Order Streaming bundles the discrete demands and processes—like a traditional wave—allocating resources to fulfill in bulk. But when a request for an individual, direct-to-consumer order is registered, Order Streaming processes that piece of work immediately, without any dependency on other workflows. The technology can even bundle lower-priority, direct-to-consumer orders within waves to gain efficiency.

With the intelligence and flexibility of Order Streaming, distribution centers can dynamically scale to accommodate any quantity of any type of workflow in real time, simultaneously. Manhattan Active WM helps you maximize throughput and utilization like never before.
