30,000 Stock-keeping units
200 New items added every week
150,000 Cases of product shipped daily

The Challenge

 

Joe Beydoun, Lipari’s director of supply chain management and business intelligence, was trying to figure out how to arrange items and choreograph movements in the new warehouse to maximize speed while minimizing breakage. The facility needed to store 30,000 distinct stock-keeping units (SKUs), add 200 new item types a week and ship 150,000 cases of product each night. Then he thought about the heat maps used by sports teams to understand hitter or shooter tendencies. Could Lipari, Beydoun wondered, build a visual representation of its new warehouse that likewise showed areas of the most and least activity?

In a competitive business like ours, time is of the essence. The visual warehouse goes beyond the charts and graphs we were getting with our existing analytics, to give us an instant view of exactly what’s happening with our inventory.”

The Results

Once the warehouse opened, Lipari was able to use the new system to more efficiently use its space and increase the productivity of its workers. Throughout the day, warehouse managers monitor key indicators, such as the hourly rate of items picked from shelves and average item travel time. The visual display helps to identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies in the order in which items are picked and packed. And it informs optimal routing for forklift drivers.
