As a logistics and warehouse professional you may see the need to improve your warehouse operation. Productivity could be higher, lead times shorter, stock take easier, delivery errors fewer. The software that is currently running your warehouse has a great bearing on the efficiency and effectiveness of your operation...
- You may have specifically developed warehouse management software that has been in place for years – the legacy syndrome.
- You may be using the WMS module of your ERP system, which is no longer able to cope with today’s Supply Chain demands
- You may have heavily customised WMS that was configured to meet the demands of your customers, products and order profiles years ago.
These types of WMS systems bring their own set of problems. They use outdated and old-fashioned methods to run the warehouse, they generally require higher staffing levels to complete the warehouse operation and normally the system has a continuing inability to cope with today’s highly pressured Supply Chain Execution demands. As a result your business could be suffering from
- Batch control and traceability problems
- Stock put-away and pick issues
- Service level agreement failure
- Warehouse throughput issues
- Inaccurate and incomplete data
- Lack of data visibility
Whilst it may be a daunting prospect to consider the implications of updating or changing the software, the benefits of operating a new cost effective and efficient warehouse are many. Improvements can be made in
- Putaway rates
- Pick inaccuracies
- Pick rates
- Stock visibility
- Warehouse space
- Staffing Levels
- Warehouse reporting
- Delivery lead times
- Delivery errors
- Service level agreement achievement
to name a few.
