Obtaining a Competitive Advantage with Warehouse Automation

Today, one of the most promising solutions for achieving a competitive advantage is warehouse automation technology, this paper is a complete resource to obtaining a competitive advantage with warehouse automation. By Westfalia




Automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) technology has come a long way in recent years.

Component materials have never been sturdier, and engineering designs are thoroughly vetted.

Warehouse management system (WMS) and warehouse control system (WCS) software has undergone numerous refinements and operates almost flawlessly.

In fact, one of the biggest changes is that these two warehouse software systems can be integrated with one another and have become known as warehouse execution systems (WES).

While warehouse automation technology - an AS/RS and WES - can help manufacturers and distributors keep products fresh, prevent and mitigate recalls, enable compliance with industry regulations and protect consumers, they also provide long-term benefits that generate additional cost savings.

The AS/RS-WES combination allows companies to improve overall efficiency, meet growing customer demand, raise productivity, lower risks, boost throughput and increase inventory accuracy.

Plus, an AS/RS has an average lifespan of 25 to 30 years.

Manufacturers and distributors are looking for new, strategic ways to obtain a competitive edge.

For most, this means doing things a little bit differently in order to operate more efficiently, improve customer satisfaction and cut costs.

Today, one of the most promising solutions for achieving a competitive advantage is warehouse automation technology.
