Warehouse Management Systems Slotting

Why do you see inventory items in a store on the end-caps or strategic locations on shelves? Why does it cost suppliers more discount allowances to the store for those items to be located on an end-cap instead of the middle of the shopping aisle? They are visible, quickly picked up, and are more likely the buyer will purchase them. So give your customers what they want, faster and more efficiently.

Posted by Gerry Poe

Many changes within the warehouse can have a negative impact on productivity making the original slotting setup less than optimal. SKU stock or velocity, new products, discontinued products, new trends in the industry and new technology are examples. The changes can happen slowly and may not be apparent.

It's been proven that a properly slotted warehouse drives down operation costs and improves distribution productivity by 8% to 15%, and can yield space savings up to 30%.  It is possible to understand the issues and opportunities with a hits and movement analysis, by mapping it out, or by following pickers. Even so, it's very easy to overlook the true opportunity of slotting and underestimate the impact it can have on productivity.
