 Re-engineering

An analysis of existing processes often reveals hidden opportunities. Modest investments in process changes can move these recovered dollars to the bottom line. Beware the pitfall of over-engineering and rushing to solution.

More often than not significant improvements can be made in distribution facilities with little or no changes to systems. We have helped organizations improve productivity and safety without making any changes to the computer systems.

Analyzing productivity numbers and operating costs relative to industry standards is one of the ways to determine whether or not there is an opportunity to improve the bottom line.

If the opportunity is there it is then a matter of determining what changes can be made, with the least difficulty and cost that will return the most benefit. We have worked with companies to redesign facility layouts, change to more appropriate storage racking, and change work methods, to name a few.
