Low Impact Ways to Boost Throughput:

How an industrial parts supplier increased throughput 25% while 400,000 SKUs kept shipping

Speakers for this event:

  • Mark Hollebeek, Director of Control Systems, viastore systems, Inc.  Learn More
  • Cindy Zeiger, Product Manager, Accu-Sort Systems, Inc. Learn More

    Bar coding proves greater than the sum of the parts for an industrial parts supplier with 400,000 SKUs.

    Learn how one warehouse maintained workflow during a major upgrade and minimized impact on current operations.

    Highlights include:

    • Teaching a single scanner to read bar codes with extreme variability in contrast
    • Installing less equipment which then requires fewer spares and less service
    • Working around the existing warehouse layout
    • Minimizing the need to interface with a slow mainframe

    This webcast is for warehouse and logistics managers who seek best practice ideas for increasing throughput and lowering costs via automation.
