Lean Manufacturing Identifies Waste in Non-Picking Tasks Which Increase Costs


East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/14/2015 -- Picking Perfection newsletter reported keeping the worker on the work floor, eliminating non picking tasks, axiomatically reduces "walk-time" because the picker need not return to the starting point following each task. Some of the immediate kaizen event net gains means that paper lists are eliminated, consumable cost reduced, and eliminating the need for an operator to man the printer.

Technology which handles the orders in real-time, ensures current and accurate pick information is always up to date. The warehouse manager must have instant visible work status, at both the shift level and the picker level. The data gathered on pickers' performances are easily recorded and monitored both historically and in real-time.
