Up Your Output

If you don’t mind working hard and paying close attention to detail, you may very well be able to achieve productivity improvements of 15%-30% in your distribution center — without having to make radical changes to your current processes. This good news is presented in a new Tom Zosel Associates’ white paper titled “The Seven Keys to Improving Distribution Productivity.” Clearly written and well organized, the white paper describes the factors that readers need to take into account when they set up productivity improvement programs. Individual accountability, for example, underlies all productivity, but is often overlooked.

Successful campaigns to achieve general productivity improvement rely on three components: engineering, labor reporting software, and execution management (which refers to training supervisors and managing the changes such a program requires). The white paper makes clear that unless all three of these elements are included in an improvement program, the chances of its success are seriously diminished.
