Slotting Analysis Services Optimize Order Picking Efficiency
SI Systems’ Slotting Analysis Services can significantly improve order picking and order fulfillment throughput and efficiency by recommending the optimum placement of your inventory (SKUs) in any order picking system.
The day you design and implement your order picking system is the same day its efficiencies degrade. Every hour, day, week and month that goes by means your system is not performing up to its capabilities. Whether your system is manual, automated or semi-automated, a tune-up using Slotting Analysis Services can bring you back to top performance.
SI Systems Slotting Analysis Services will review and analyze your inventory and order picking data. By evaluating your SKU and order profiles special attention will be paid to every SKUs physical size, velocity, commonality and cross reference where and how its stored and picked. Whether you use pick modules, automated storage and retrieval systems, shelving and rack or pallet positions, a well slotted facility keeps SKUs in the proper material handling equipment and logically located to reduce labor, floor space and on hand inventory requirements.
Good slotting help keep fast, medium and slow moving SKUs in the appropriate material handling system and located in the most logical location. Items picked together often are kept in close proximity. Faster moving items regardless of the velocity is directed to be stored in the closest and most ergonomic positions. Moving SKUs from material handling system to system based on popularity, velocity and trends keeps a well slotted facility performing at peak performance.
