The client required lean process improvements, material flow, Warehouse Management System (WMS), software configuration alignment, Best in Class warehouse layout, and material handling equipment.
These solutions resulted in the following:
- $1.58 Million in labor savings
- 35% reduction in warehouse footprint
- 30% increase in pick productivity
52% reduction in overall facility footprint (435,000 ft2 to 210,000 ft2 while adhering to complex business requirements.)
The multi-disciplined team at DSI diagnosed the production and quality hindering symptoms that our client had been experiencing. We then engineered the right solution for their business across all spectrums of the project. Two solution paths were identified – improve the current facility or move into a new one. After a business analysis, moving into a new facility proved to be a more valuable solution for our clients future goals and growth.
