Service Parts

01 / Challenge

Key indicators implied that the service level performance of picking and packing, as well as receiving handling times were not met to customer expectations.

  • Processes were performed 2 hrs later than expected.
  • Inbound processes were performed 24 hrs later than expected. \Inventory counts took longer than 2 days to perform.
  • Picking large volume shipments of Return to Vendor materials, which consisted of defective or returned materials took more than 4 days to complete.
  • Inventory accuracy was only 90%.

02 / Process

We consulted with the warehouse in order to understand the root cause of this underperformance. We understood that the weak areas were as follows:

  • Scarce space at the warehouse which was derived from disorganized working procedures.
  • Defective items were not contained in one area which lead to long picking times.
  • Items were not consolidated according to standard procedures.

Optimizing space and workload by setting organized working procedures:

  • Consolidation of items of the same category at the same location – lead to reducing the picking time and put-away time.
  • Identification of “high-runner” items and storing them on a floor level lead to reducing the picking time and effort (some of these items were large and required a fork lift to complete the picking).
  • Set up of bin locations and beehive racks to contain the small and envelop size packages in an orderly fashion, to optimize the picking and put-away time.
  • Dedicating a pallet rack area for defective items and setting up a process in which an order is issued every time this rack area is full – lead to reducing the pick time of large shipments for Return to Vendor requests.
  • Dedicating a pallet rack area for returned material pending review and inbound – helped in creating a more organized work area, clearer information flow and smoother handling.

03 / Results

  • Outbound picking time reduced from 2 hours to 20 minutes.
  • Inbound receiving and put away reduced from 24 hours to 3 hours.
  • Inventory counts are done in under 24 hours.
  • Inventory accuracy is 99%. 100% of orders are shipped the same day – none are missed due to lost inventory or handling time.
