Warehousing

  Warehousing menu item Warehousing   Warehouse management, inventory control and labor management provide the biggest gains in operational efficiencies and cost-reduction initiatives. The utilization of best practices to effectively manage those three key areas of your operation will dramatically affect your bottom line.

  High Tech menu item High-Tech   Most often, companies think of Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) when planning their strategy for warehouse optimization. Initially, these systems were designed to control the storage and movement of inventory. Over the years, however, WMS technology has matured and applications have become much more robust; expanding their functionality to include order management, picking, receiving, shipping, put away, slotting, and reporting tools. WMS solutions offer significant benefits, but finding the “right” solution and configuring it to your unique operation can be extremely challenging.

Some best-of-breed WMS solutions our logistics consultants have implemented include JDA/RedPrairie DLx, Manhattan WMOS, Manhattan ILS, Manhattan iSeries, HighJump Warehouse Advantage, Infor WM4000, Made4Net's Warehouse Expert and many more.

      In addition to a WMS, there are other areas where considerable improvements can be made to further optimize your operation, such as: maximizing warehouse space utilization, designing the most efficient pick path, employing good housekeeping and safety initiatives, purchasing efficient equipment - pallet jacks, material handling systems, forklifts, conveyor systems, etc. - and providing proper equipment maintenance, ensuring employees have the basic tools to perform their jobs effectively, and more.
     

Inventory Control:

There are several ways to attain control over your inventory while substantially reducing costs.  Analyzing your SKU velocity to identify the fast and slow movers and designing an efficient pick path, or slotting, will ensure your operation is making the most of valuable real estate.  Consider liquidating or donating those items where little-to-no profit can be realized.  Cycle counting, Advanced Shipment Notifications (ASN), cross docking, and directed put away and replenishment are other ways to augment inventory control.

Labor Management:

Effective labor management will help you achieve peak performance in your warehouse operation while realizing the full potential of your workforce.  A Labor Management System (LMS) measures productivity based on predefined best practices and key performance indicators (KPI's).  It's a very effective tool that can help identify bottlenecks and obstacles, unproductive use of time, the need for further training and diminishing performance levels.  As with any solution, an LMS needs to be configured to your unique warehouse operation in order to provide the biggest bang for your buck.
