The Warehouse Guide to Lean Labeling

This whitepaper will explain what lean labeling is and how to identify and diagnose your labeling issues.

Why “Lean Labeling”? From our past experience at Newcastle Systems, our biggest challenge has always been about helping our customers see a problem they didn’t know they have.

While Receiving has permanently changed by solving a previously unknown problem, the warehouse has plenty of other similar challenges that are not necessarily “ignored”, but just not considered big enough to gain the attention it may deserve.

Labels are apparently one of those challenges that doesn’t get enough attention, but now is the time to change that, as doing so will make a big difference in your business.

Lean Labeling Basics

Lean Labeling is no different than any other process to which you would apply “Lean” analysis and the changes that come from it.

The reason we call it out here with the name “Lean Labeling” is mainly because even as a “sub-process” in most other warehouse processes, it is rarely given the attention it requires and even then, it is often not “intentional”, but a result of a very visible problem or emergency. When a problem crops up suddenly, the fix is often a band-aid that don’t address the core problem.
