Today's analytical tools can help harness the massive amounts of data being captured by distributors' Warehouse Management Systems (WMS). The challenge ahead is no longer getting the data out of the system or organizing it in a way we can digest it, but rather focusing our efforts on the key metrics that can provide the greatest improvements to our operations.
You may already be familiar with: fill rate, shipped on time, order accuracy. We will discuss these more common concepts, but also reach into areas like employee productivity by task, picks by zone, out of place products, and incomplete tasks by operator, function or delivery method.
Much time is spent in the warehouse finding things. Finding inventory, finding misplaced orders, finding what else needs to be done. Adding visibility to your warehouse alone can reap huge rewards. Come join us in this session to discuss what metrics we should focus on to increase productivity and reduce errors.
