Beyond the technology itself, we offer project management, staff augmentation, training, and ROI assessments to ensure a smooth lifecycle from start to finish.

  • Optimisation of Rosters: Beyond simple volume forecasts, we develop rostering
    solutions that consider the nature of activities, ensuring a more refined approach to workforce management.

  • Warehouse Machine Speed Calibration: By measuring the operational speeds of
    warehouse machinery, we ensure Labour Management systems reflect the most accurate travel times for associates’ tasks.

  • Volume Drivers and Units of Measure: Through validating and refining these metrics, we enhance the precision of labour standards and system customisations.

  • Activity Measurement Using MOST: This predetermined time and motion system allows for precise measurement of warehouse tasks, laying the groundwork for customised labour standards.

  • Variable Analysis and LMS Customisation: We examine factors such as racking type, case size and weight, and handling difficulty, allowing for further refinement of labour standards.

  • Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) Alignment: Collaborating with Subject Matter Experts, we ensure SOPs are in sync with timing standards, fostering unity and buy-in among all warehouse personnel.

  • Training Program (OPTIMIZE): Our comprehensive training for supervisors and
    associates facilitates the successful implementation of new systems, driving change management and long-term sustainability.

  • Staffing Analysis and Shift Optimisation: Before making shift adjustments, we validate staffing needs based on activity, exploring opportunities for more flexible shift lengths and volume-based staffing levels.
