DO THE MATH: Using Modeling to Optimize Distribution Center Automation

Use mathematical modeling to tailor an automation strategy to your business.

One of the first questions to answer when considering automation is: how much is enough? An over engineered system increases complexity and could delay your ROI for years. Under engineer the system and you stifle future growth. So how do you find your sweet spot? You do the math (or find someone to do it for you). Modeling SKU velocity, order activity and other variables ensures your automation system is optimized for cost, throughput and flexibility. Get the full story in our white paper, Do the Math: Using Modeling to Optimize Distribution Center Automation.

Solving the Automation Challenge in Beverage Distribution

Early attempts at automating beverage distribution were overly complex and inflexible because they failed to account for the true business case for automation. The solution is to focus automation strategically on slower-moving products. This gets to the root of the real driver for automation in beverage distribution – the SKU proliferation that has eroded pick efficiency — without the complexity and rigidity of full automation. It delivers pick rates comparable to full automation with greater flexibility and at a fraction of the cost. Our white paper, Back to the Future in Beverage Distribution: How Wave Picking is Solving the Automation Challenge, tells the full story.
