The Benefits of Using Warehouse Device Data to Improve Workflow

In business, gathering data and attempting to maximise time efficiency is analogous to budgeting in your daily lives. That S6 coffee may appear to be a low-cost purchase, but if you grab a coffee for a rupee less each morning, you’ll save roughly S365 over the course of a year. When you multiply it by 100 people, you have a total savings of S 36,500.

It is safe to believe that human workers contribute 70 percent of the value added on the sales floor, and contrary to common perception that this figure will substantially reduce with automation, humans will stay at the centre of production, logistics, and the supply chain for the near future. This ecosystem cannot exist in the absence of a human-centered starting point. As a result, increasing the functions associated with data tracking aids in maximising output. For example, by linking all scanners to the IoT devices, time is saved by lowering the distance a worker has to move around the warehouse.

Furthermore, tracking measures completed by workers as a collective benefit (for example, overall time saved and enhanced productivity) can be acquired via wearables to enhance workflow efficiency. They can also spot flaws in day-to-day processes that were previously undiscovered. Like with the personal expenditure scenario, the savings can be astounding until you start adding up numerous little sums and multiplying them company-wide. Companies who apply the right warehouse technology can achieve efficiencies of up to 20 percent in certain areas.

As per one German study, warehouse transit time amounts for an average of 40 percent of overall picking time. This includes the worker’s travel to and from the pickup point, and also the time spent at the site itself. Scanners connected to the Internet of Things would be able to collect this data, which artificial intelligence will be able to analyse for improvements. Is there a better way or a better order in which products can be collected?

Such variables can be determined using programmes. Sometimes the most dangerous condition is one that goes unnoticed. Identifying those blind spots via data collection and analysis can be a major game-changer.

While the Suez Canal was closed for about six and a half days, Suez Canal Authority Director Osama Rabie estimated that $15 million was being wasted every day the crisis lasted. However, the actual cost of the incident was much higher. Being a week behind implies that the following week is likewise delayed, forcing to further delay the following week as resources are gathered. This starts to compound and worsen the problem, making the money lost much more extravagant.

On the other hand, by enhancing efficiency through newer technologies, positive compounding effects can occur throughout the supply chain. As employees save more time, not only can more be achieved, but this “generated” time may be used to enhance efficiency and invent technologies that will save even more time down the road.

Companies could make better judgments if they can find and invest in technology that deliver process analytics throughout the warehouse. It has the potential to increase productivity and safety while also laying the groundwork for the creation of a human digital twin, in which employees are linked to a growing IoT and contribute information to enhance efficiency. It all begins with placing the worker first.
