A study sponsored by Intermec in 2012 found that an average warehouse worker can lose 15 minutes a day due to process inefficiencies. That translates to 3,000 Labor Hours lost to inefficiencies every year! How does one begin to chip down on that number? The principle is simple. Chipping away at it day by day can make all the difference.
The process begins with measuring and defining certain metrics.
Benefits of Using Performance Metrics for Your DC
There are numerous benefits to using performance metrics for your DC. These include:
With improved productivity, there is a greater chance that you will reduce the overall costs of machinery, assembly, and manufacturing. Hence, you will reduce the overall costs per unit. This is a great arrow to have in your quiver to lower overall costs and boost overall profits.
With greater utilization of performance metrics, you can improve overall employee retention by paying employees commensurate to their labor exactly. This will reduce the overall cost of acquisitions and recruitment and thus will leave more revenue for expansion and improving efficiency.
More Productive Overtime
With the right performance metrics at hand, you can utilize resources more efficiently and increase the ROI over time. This effective utilization can multiply over time and give you compounded results far greater than if you would simply institute efficiency measures in a single department.
