Dramatically Cut Travel & Increase Productivity With Dynamic Work Optimisation

Day 1 – Wednesday 15th March at 10.45

Labour is the single largest operating cost in most DCs, and traveling between pick locations often accounts for as much as 50% of labour time. WMS and other systems that direct picking use simplistic batching and sequencing rules that result in excessive travel. Using advanced mathematical models, Lucas has built a tool called Dynamic Work Optimisation that can reduce travel time for warehouse processes by up to 70%, resulting in increased productivity and lower labour costs.

During the presentation, we highlight Lucas customer examples of how these gains can be reached without making any changes to warehouse layout, picking processes or product slotting.
