Picking Perfection News Magazine Discussed Importance of Warehouse Layout to Increase Productivity
East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- The current issue of Picking Perfection, discussed the importance of warehouse layout to achieve greater efficiencies. Minimizing travel time between picking locations can greatly improve productivity. To achieve this increase in efficiency, companies must develop processes to regularly monitor picking travel times and storage locations. Warehouse operations that still use hard copy pick tickets find that it is not very efficient and prone to human errors. To maximize efficiency world-class warehouse operations adopt pick-to-light technology.
The October 27th issue of Picking Perfection, suggested errors that occur in the warehouse are costly. Not only is the number of errors important but who is making the errors. It is useful to track the pickers' work and offer additional training or technology to help the distribution center (DC) workers correct the mistakes. By reducing the pick errors, DCs reduce the cost associated with fixing the mistakes that end up going out the door. If picking is being done manually, each picker needs to be held accountable. DCs must be able to identify how the error occurred and hopefully correct the error so it does not happen again.
