Are you wasting your best space on slow movers? Do your frequency classifications get out-dated? Do you spend too much time on optimizing product placement with your current tools? If the answer is yes, you need Astro WMS® Slotting, a dynamic slotting tool for optimizing product slotting.
Using the data stored by Astro WMS®, the dynamic slotting module will help you analyze and adjust SKU placement in your warehouse for optimal picking efficiency. Placing fast movers at easy-to-access locations will reduce your picking times and distances. And you can identify SKUs that are regularly picked together and place them in adjacent locations.
Slotting analysis can also reduce product damage. For example, you can arrange your picking strategy and layout so that heavy items are located at the beginning of pick runs. This will ensure they are placed on the pallet first.
Another important area for slotting is replenishment. Slotting analysis can help you determine the appropriate slot sizes based on picking frequency. This information will help you determine costs for replenishment and placement activities, providing you with a balanced view for making an appropriate financial and space decision.
