Rethinking Your Reslotting Strategy


This whitepaper focuses on the elements that go into achieving a solid reslotting strategy. Optimal slotting benefits from slot maintenance performed in sync with distribution center dynamics. Opportunistic responses to destabilizing events – such as product volume and mix changes, seasonal demands, and promotions -  allow for reslotting that increases picking efficiency. Identifying inflection points and reslotting at the appropriate time using underutilized labor at standard rates minimizes costs and improves payback cycles. Once a slotting strategy has been determined and resultant rules established, slotting technology can be employed to achieve a reslotting strategy that minimizes costs and optimizes efficiency according to the predetermined warehousing objectives.

Increase Performance in Your Slotting Universe


This 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. Focusing on the role of warehouse slotting, rich in data complexity, and ripe for understanding how it can impact overall supply chain success, this paper illustrates effective slotting by exploring the Five 'P's of slotting, defined as product, performance, people, pallet and purchaser, 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.
