Productivity growth is important to the firm because more real income means that the firm can meet its (perhaps growing) obligations to customers, suppliers, workers, shareholders, and governments (taxes and regulation), and still remain competitive or even improve its competitiveness in the market place.
While productivity depends on several factors: motivation, talent, training, work environment, support from others, time management, luck... it's almost too much to think about. But when everything lines up, and the right equipment is in place, things get done.
Instead of walking back and forth from a deskbound computer to printers and other devices used in tasks such as inventory management, process control, on-demand label printing, product testing, order picking, cross-docking, weighing, scanning, etc., all necessary equipment can be brought to where the work is taking place. An operator can have real-time access to WMS, ERP, and automated data collection.
A productive warehouse:
- Slots the fastest-moving products to be closest, easiest.
- Brings product to pickers, not pickers to product.
- Makes sure supplies are easily accessible for packers.
