How to Support Your Supply Chain Operations with Lean Inbound Logistics Lean, Transportation

August 19, 2014

The webinar discussed why and how to implement lean logistics to support the lean supply chain operations - both in manufacturing and distribution, and how the efficient flow of inbound materials through your supply chain can have a significant impact on cost, quality, service, and delivery to your customer. With continued pressures from globalization, market volatility, and innovation expectations, companies are extending their reliance on lean principles to outside the four walls of the manufacturing facility. Lean inbound logistics requires strategic coordination to synchronize suppliers, transportation providers and multiple supply chain partners. And like all complex multi-party operations, the road to improvement will have its challenges. Such hurdles could include balancing inventory cost with transportation cost, the lack of leadership understanding and support, and the realities of incumbent manufacturing and procurement contracts and systems.

Engineering Your Warehouse Warehousing

February 28, 2013

Managing your warehouse by "ABC" analysis gets you the big obvious efficiencies, but do not overlook yet another level of efficiencies that is as large in aggregate. "ABC" analysis treats all SKUs as if they were one of three types, and otherwise identical within types. This made sense before computers, but makes little sense now when computers enable us to manage individual SKUs. Saving a centimeter here and five seconds there, when summed over many transactions and many pallets/cases/pieces, can add up to significant efficiencies!

Warehouse/Distribution Center Layout Warehousing

October 10, 2012

Your facility layout has a major influence on your productivity and material handling costs. If you have not reviewed it lately, you may find good opportunities for improvement. Better layouts: reduce travel time to and from storage areas, shorten pick paths and improve picker productivity, improve space utilization, and improve utilization of specialized equipment. In fact, a good layout is the key to lean operations and effective material flow. Systematic Layout Planning (SLP) is a comprehensive, step-by-step method for planning any kind of warehouse or distribution center. Highly practical and easily-learned, we have taught this method to thousands of logistics professionals over the past 20 years. In this one-hour webinar, Lee Hales, President of Richard Muther & Associates, provided an overview of the SLP method and the below key aspects that are covered in detail as part of our Warehouse/Distribution Center Layout professional education course. Relationship charting - an essential step in layout planning Quantified flow diagramming and what it can show you How to estimate floor space required How to evaluate and select the best layout for your facility
