What You Will Learn

Are you trying to gain an advantage, shipping high volume e-commerce orders from a high SKU count inventory? Are you faced with significant fourth quarter peak demand? Do you want to understand how to reduce labor while enhancing outbound order quality? This case study will demonstrate methods by which such achievements can be gained through careful application of automation and efficient, best practice procedures. A review of the design process, facility layout and simulation videos will help to illustrate the overall concept as well as the details of the benefits gained. We will conduct a virtual tour of the facility, reviewing its functions from receiving through to shipping. We will look at how orders are waved and tasks passed along to pickers. We’ll follow the items till they join up with the rest of the order. Then we’ll see how the order is prepped, packaged and sorted for shipment, reusing the single most costly element in the system.

Key Takeaways

How appropriate levels of automation can provide justifiable benefits even when underutilized throughout much of the year.

How to develop a design with both the flexibility and scalability necessary to adapt to today’s e-commerce environment.
