Pay Attention to Design
One of the most influential elements in warehouse operations is its design. Poor warehouse design will invariably lead to poor organizational operations. If your warehouse’s flow is not coherent, your business will never reach its maximum profitability.
Here are three important elements of warehouse design that you should evaluate closely if you want to improve your operations.
Flow: You want to make sure that both workers and products have clear ingress and egress lanes of flow. If you can manage to accentuate the efficiency of flow in your day to day operations, you will experience a vast improvement in the operation of your warehouse.
Accessibility: Having a clear and precise flow through your warehouse will do little good if your products are not easily accessible. Your operators need ease of access to your products if you wish to maintain top efficiency. Specific types of racking solutions can offer more or less direct access to your offerings, so consider carefully how organization and accessibility go hand and hand.
Capacity: You must accurately calculate your actual storage capacity and inform every other decision you make with that information. If you miscalculate your storage capacity you may end up with a workforce that is unable to keep pace, or worse yet, a workforce who is idle due to empty spaces in your operation workflow.
Properly Label Your Merchandise
Imagine a scenario where there is a high demand for your product, you have more order processing to do, and in order to handle this extra demand, you hire temporary workers. These workers will not be as familiar with your warehouse operations as your regular crew, so if there are any discrepancies in your product labels, your new temp workers will grind to a halt and cost you valuable time and money.
Select The Most Appropriate Storage Solution To Each Product
You must constantly review the most active storage solutions that your warehouse depends on. Relying on the wrong pallet or stack for your particular product is one of the easiest roads to warehouse disaster.
Each system has its distinct advantages and disadvantages. In fact, there are a number of variables, such as the size of your organization and the degree of variability within your product offerings, that will make certain storage solutions more valuable than others.
