Slotting Optimization

The Value of Effective Manhattan Active® Warehouse Slotting Optimization

Slotting keeps your distribution operations running smoothly by ensuring the product is in the optimal pick location. Experienced 4SiGHT experts can help you leverage the benefits of slotting to size your pick faces more efficiently, reduce picker travel time, determine optimal stock levels, and provide more ergonomic and safer picks for your operators.

Manhattan Active® Slotting Optimization integrates with Active Warehouse Management to supercharge warehouse operations. It uses applied intelligence to continuously optimize inventory placement based on configurable factors such as seasonality, sales trends, and location sizes. Slotting moves and picking activities are interleaved to leverage the power of consolidated task management that reassigns items to locations while maintaining preferred-item sequencing and family groupings to boost replenishment efficiency and balance workloads. With its speed and robust functionality, this highly effective solution allows you to re-slot your warehouse dynamically 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 entire 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 receiving and stocking associates?

Each company has unique questions and approaches to slotting. 4SiGHT’s certified Manhattan Active Slotting Optimization experts can mentor your teams to develop the right slotting strategy for your operations.
