Research Triangle Park, N.C. - December 1, 2009 - Optricity <http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102843454992&s=271&e=001GKqUrXtELxGXf2OLYiCxPt2hjrX072LpdlrOm5oby6AU8fvGx_An1b6P3_pbj5nnd76PmEYkfvA1ivFItO7Rsq9U2Y5z9CdaQQtafgED04CyLSZJ1Hbbjw==> , supply chain optimization software innovator and provider, released its latest whitepaper, "Warehouse Slotting: Increase Performance Using the Five 'P's in Your Slotting Universe." The new whitepaper discusses the increasing complexity of the warehouse environment and how understanding the warehouse "universe," in particular, the universe of warehouse slotting, facilitates a smooth flow of goods.
The warehouse sits squarely at the juncture between suppliers and customers with the expectation of shipping the right product to the right people using the right process at the right time. In today's data-driven world, that job requires knowledge inside and outside of the four walls of the warehouse in order to effectively balance competing goals and constraints to achieve success. As the slotting universe expands inside and outside of the four walls, increased goals and constraints compete. Understanding the slotting universe increases the chance to maximize warehouse performance. Fine tuning the warehouse along the Five Ps, defined as product, performance, people, pallet and purchaser, creates a roadmap for warehousing success.
Dan Basmajian, Optricity's President and CEO, describes why this topic is so important to warehouse operations: "As an operation's slotting universe expands to include goals and constraints inside and outside the four walls of the DC, the ability to maximize warehouse performance decreases. But fine tuning the warehouse using the Five 'P's and understanding the slotting universe mitigates these circumstances, increasing the chance to maximize performance."
Optricity's latest whitepaper focuses on the role of warehouse slotting, rich in data complexity, and ripe for understanding how it can impact overall supply chain success. To illustrate effective slotting, the paper explores the Five 'P's of slotting, ultimately defining how warehouses, which sit squarely at the juncture between suppliers and customers, can enhance performance and more efficiently meet expectations by balancing goals and constraints.
