Five simple ways to improve warehouse efficiency.

Five simple ways to improve warehouse efficiency Maximise and optimise all available space Rather than expand the footprint of your warehouse, consider better use of vertical space. Adding taller storage units and the right equipment to pick and store material can help you keep more in the same square footage, rather than adding expansion costs. In addition, think about the type and variety of shelving used. Lean Inventory Adopting lean inventory for your warehouse is just as important as it is in manufacturing. The basic premise of lean is only what you need, and nothing more. Possibly reduce or eliminate safety stocks, and try to get suppliers to deliver smaller quantities more frequently. Adopt enabling technology. A warehouse management system (WMS) or an ERP system with a strong WMS module can improve efficiency by suggesting the best routes and methods for picking or put-away. In addition, the system provides automated pick lists that can be sent to mobile readers and devices to help eliminate mistakes and reduce wasted time and paper. Your warehouse will be neater and greener. Organise workstations. Organizing workstations improves productivity because workers do not have to search for tools or equipment. Use the "5S" method from lean manufacturing to ensure your workstations are as organized as possible. It consists of: Sort; Set in order; Shine; Standardize; and Sustain – all techniques designed to keep clutter at bay, reduce errors, and improve safety and organization. Optimise labour efficiency. If your WMS doesn't have the ability to generate efficient picking plans, create them manually. Analyse your material usage patterns, and store high-volume items together near front of the warehouse eliminate tim Also, items that are frequently sold together near one another. Basically, you will streamline operations if you try to keep the items you pick most often in the most accessible locations to eliminate picking delays. Improving warehouse efficiency is as much about common sense and the right storage equipment as it is about fancy picking algorithms. Follow these simple steps and watch your efficiency soar.
