Lean Warehouse


Lean Warehouse

Why would you apply "Lean" to your warehouse processes.

Lean thinking is the concepts of customer value, continuous flow, pull, and relentless waste reduction to all warehouse activity.

The results will surprise you.

What is Lean?

Lean is an integrated set of industrial principles and methods first developed by James P. Womack and Daniel T. Jones and articulated in their landmark 1996 book Lean Thinking (Simon & Schuster).

It grew out of the authors' ground breaking study of the Japanese automobile industry, The Machine That Changed the World (Simon & Schuster).

Lean thinking enables companies to find the best way to specify value for the customer, to identify the value stream for each product, to cause the product to flow smoothly from concept to customer, to permit the customer to pull value as needed from the producer, and to make a lean leap toward perfection.

The concept of value, value stream, flow, pull, and perfection are deployed by means of lean techniques for product development, production, purchasing, and customer support. What better area than your warehousing and distribution.

Do I need an Agile Warehouse?

In addition to lean warehouse processes need to be agile.

Agility and flexibility are the essence of a good warehouse process and intelligent logistics management.

Adaptive and able to move-quickly is necessary for an effective distribution strategy.

Each order must be handled differently.

Each customer has their own set of instructions and requirements to satisfy by the warehouse.
