One of the most overlooked aspects of making a distribution operation work at optimal levels is improving your facility’s slotting strategy. Warehouse slotting is moving your product to the most efficient locations to increase your order pickers rates with less time used handling/searching for the product. Our slotting analysis focuses on an economic based formula which optimizes your product location by cost of the storage space, equipment required, and storage medium. This software is also used to help prevent a facility move by providing a capacity analysis. There are three core areas we focus on when looking a slotting strategy for your company:
By improving these three areas we are able to help clients eliminate overtime in picking processes, accommodate seasonality, plan for current marketing promotions, reduce replenishment cycles, reduce cost of holding excess inventory, and prevent a facility expansion due to space constraints.
As part of every slotting analysis project we design your system in 3D before making physical changes to your layout. This allows your team to physically see the changes prior to implementation and gain a deeper understanding of the impact of these changes.
