Four Ways You Waste Space in the Warehouse

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Feb 19, 2020 12:46:40 AM

Ask a facility manager to list the biggest challenges they face, and they almost unanimously include “space” in their top three, if not number one. This is often a symptom of growth outpacing the ability to expand into more space, but is most often the result of space being used ineffectively. In a perfect world, your facility is full of robots, modular racking that adapts to changes quickly, and A WMS with an AI feature that automatically places everything in its optimal space, ensuring every inch is utilized and every unused inch is known and tracked.

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Feb 4, 2020 7:00:00 AM

As we continue our series of “challenges” that we started four weeks ago and will continue leading up to MODEX, we’re going to keep drilling down and spend a second week on the Eight Forms of Waste as they relate to Inventory. Last week we delved into the three areas of “Talent (Underutilized Resources)”, “Waiting Time” and “Extra Motion” (See “Eight Forms of Waste – Inventory, Part I”). This week we’ll look at four more forms of waste and how they impact your Inventory processes:

  • Defects
  • Transportation
  • Extra Processing
  • Over Production

The Eight Forms of Waste – A Look at Inventory

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Jan 27, 2020 7:25:48 AM

Last week we continued our drill-down into the common challenges facing manufacturers and distribution businesses by focusing on Inventory (See “Four Inventory Management Challenges for 2020”). This week we’re going to dig down another level within the Inventory space by looking at it through the lens of the Six Sigma’s “Eight Forms of Waste”. Since we like to keep things to a short read of 5-7 minutes, we’ll focus on three of them today specifically in how they relate to the challenges of Inventory management.

Four Inventory Management Challenges for 2020

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Jan 14, 2020 7:00:00 AM

Our last regular article of 2019 was about the major challenges we see coming in Manufacturing and Distribution, particularly in the food industry. This year we wanted to start with something that drills down a bit deeper into one of those challenges – Inventory Management. The good news on this topic is that most of the challenges you will have in 2020 are the same as the ones you were having in 2019. The bad news is that they are just getting harder is the speed and complexity of transportation and logistics continues to evolve, and there is one important new one.

Today we’ll cover FOUR challenges you need to be monitoring and solving for if you are not already doing so:

  1. Knowing Your Inventory
  2. Inefficient Processes
  3. Customer Demand
  4. The Coming Packaging Revolution

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Dec 23, 2019 10:41:13 AM

It’s that time of year when we are all revving up the household fib generator to ensure we preserve the mythical story of Santa for our children, as we hide presents, bake cookies, decorate, wrap presents and hide them again, customize playlists to avoid too many versions of “The Little Drummer Boy” per hour, and for some of us, start packing for the holiday visit or prepare the spare rooms when we become the destination.
