Warehouse Optimisation

The right goods in the right place at the right time

4Sight | OT |Asset Simulation provides expert warehouse solutions for optimization with the use of the Optislot software, developed by Optricity. We assist warehouses improve ROI by optimising operations with advanced slotting technologies. Benefits include: increased efficiencies and labour reduction. Overall order quality and customer satisfaction improves and capital expenses can be reduced or delayed.

Advanced Slotting Technology Addresses Operational Challenges
  • Inefficient picking operations due to SKU proliferation and variability in seasonal and promotional volumes
  • Running out of warehouse space; but not yet ready to expand or move
  • Management demands to increase productivity without new equipment purchases
  • Existing space not fully optimised creating picking and put-away inefficiencies
  • Product damage is impacting customer satisfaction
  • Picking travel distance and congestion increase as new products are shoved into first available space without regard to pick path
  • Ergonomic challenges increasing workers compensation expenses
Achieving ROI

Choosing 4Sight for your slotting solution, enables you to maximise warehouse efficiencies and improve your ROI through the following methods:

  • A reduction in labour costs associated with picking and replenishment tasks
    Revenue growth from higher fulfilment volumes, without adding staff or space
    Maximising space utilisation by determining optimal locations
    Optimising product placement and picking productivity in response to seasonality and volume changes
    Improving picking efficiencies by slotting product in direct proximity to pick zones
    Reduction of travel times to locate and pick SKUs
    Integration of slotting moves with other warehouse tasks
    Planning of labour required to perform re-slotting

Before and after Optimisation: Using OptiSlot DC™ to optimise warehouse slotting with a user-defined slotting strategy yields a 95% score improvement in the example below:

OT Asset Simulation Business Intelligence Achieving ROI

Traditionally, the larger the distribution centre and the greater the number of SKUs, the more complex the slotting issues become. Increasingly, operations with lower SKU counts, but high inventory turns are recognising, they, too, can benefit substantially from slotting improvements. As such, large complex distribution operations and lower SKU/high turn environments experience tremendous benefits with rapid return on investment.
