Manhattan Warehouse Slotting

The Value of Effective Manhattan Warehouse Slotting

Slotting keeps your distribution operations running smoothly by ensuring product is in the optimal pick location. Periodic slotting keeps your pick faces more efficient, and provides more ergonomic and safer picks for your operators. However, simply having the tool is only one piece of the puzzle.

Manhattan’s Slotting Optimization tool is a powerful, web-enabled math engine that swiftly calculates the optimal locations for your inventory. With its speed and robust functionality, this highly effective solution allows you to re-slot your warehouse as often as necessary, not just once a season or even less frequently.

To make the most of your slotting tools, you must determine why you want to slot your products in the first place. Examine your full supply chain to determine the desired goal for your slotting. If your goal is to make your warehouse more efficient, what would implementing slotting do to downstream activities, such as those involving your store unloaders?

Each company has unique questions and approaches to slotting. 4SIGHT experts can mentor your teams to develop the right slotting strategy for your operations.
