Selecting and sequencing activities in order to streamline the flow of materials and goods. This is achieved through innovation, best practice design, and simulations.
Introducing optimisations to existing operations with simple process, incentive and WMS changes, or by introducing new equipment and technologies.
Product slotting and profile design
Positioning goods intelligently within a distribution centre to reduce stock movement, reduce effort, and ensure store friendliness. Slotting models also output optimised slot types for picking and reserves.
Standard operation procedure (SOP) development
Developing concise operational handbooks to regulate operations as they were intended.
Optimising workspaces to reduce fatigue and stress on the body resulting in higher productivity.
Assessments and time studies
Auditing and process mapping
Operations and warehouse management systems (WMS) functional process audits to define as-is processes to understand areas for improvement.
Labour incentive program development
Developing an engineered workforce incentive foundation that is fair, increases motivation, and reduces staff turnover.
Time and motion studies
Measuring and analysing productivity by capturing times for each activity in a process. Outputs can be used for operational benchmarking, and as inputs for labour incentive programs.
Activity based costing
Understanding the cost of each task or junction within a supply chain to recognise the real value-add of processes and evaluate them against industry standards.
