What do “density” and “throughput” have in common in Warehouse Management? Density is important, as it refers to how efficiently the available space is used for raw material and finished goods storage. Throughput, meanwhile, is a measurement of how many items can be moved through the warehouse over a period of time. Correctly calculating throughput and optimizing density is key to well-managed and efficient working warehouse operations.
Corning Data has helped many customers achieve best in class warehouse operations by leveraging JD Edwards Warehouse Management and DSI to automate and mobilize warehouse activities. In one case, Corning Data worked with a client who was “bursting at the seams” in their warehouse. As a solution, they were considering an expensive warehouse expansion project. Corning Data helped optimize the density of their facility, leveraging the existing space as effectively as possible. By deploying JD Edwards Warehouse Management, the client avoided the warehouse expansion, saving them over $500k.
So what separates JD Edwards Warehouse Management from standard Inventory Control? With directed tasking (directed picking, directed replenishment, and directed putaway), warehousing activities are systemically determined based on rules you establish. Tie breakers, FIFO, Allow Partials, Allow Breakdown and location characteristics are part of the rules you’ll establish for your directed tasking configuration.
