Roima Theses on how to improve intralogistics, part IV
Efficient, effective and flexible warehouse cannot be created with a single trick. Instead, all parts of the supply chain process must be efficient and of high quality. Isolated “duct tape solutions” will not eliminate the root cause of ineffectiveness if no one wants to look for it.
Therefore, we recommend analysing the effective and qualitative performance of the entire warehouse. Digitalization creates whole new types of opportunities. Digitalization can be used to generate speed, additional services and cost efficiency. In trade and wholesale, intralogistics has already for a long time been one of the central success factors, and in state-of-the-art factories, intralogistics plays an important role in production.
You decide whether your warehouse is a competitive factor – we help to make it happen
We think that harnessing your warehouse operations for increasing competitiveness is definitely an investment worth making. You will have a number of tools at hand, such as customer service and a direct impact on your warehouse efficiency, which you can use to boost your business.
“Take with you as you go, bring with you as you come, do while you are there” – this old Grandmother’s wisdom still holds true today and probably will do so in the future as well; it is in fact Lean! Lean thinking is a management philosophy which concentrates on eliminating waste (that is, unprofitable operations), with the aim of increasing customer satisfaction, improving quality, reducing operating costs and shortening production lead times. The objective is to have the right product in the right quantity at the right place at the right time, in the right quality. At the same time, everything unnecessary is reduced while also staying flexible and open to changes.
