A series of breakfast seminars to be delivered throughout July 2010 by Dematic will offer attendees the opportunity to find out why leading distributors around the world have been quick to embrace the amazing productivity, accuracy and safety benefits delivered by the new Goods to Person (GTP) order fulfilment solutions.
The supply chain has undergone dramatic change over the last 10 years. Delivery performance, cost reductions, and productivity improvements are no longer the only drivers for logistics system design. Equally important considerations today include labour availability, occupational health and safety (OH&S), and flexibility.
Goods to Person systems have revolutionised order fulfilment by storing and sequencing the stock required for orders, prior to transporting it to ergonomic workstations to facilitate efficient order assembly.
Workstation operators can achieve high levels of accuracy and productivity by just transferring stock to the relevant order. Safety is also improved by minimising the need for forklifts and other materials handling equipment. This also reduces on-going operating costs.
Pas Tomasiello, Dematic’s Integrated Systems Manager will provide an exciting overview of GTP giving valuable insight into this major innovation in materials handling, and drawing from Dematic’s experience with the world’s leading retailers, manufacturers and distributors.
Discussion points include:
• When it is more efficient to let the stock and orders do the travelling
• When to use people in picking and assembly, and when to automate
• High rate, ergonomic workstation designs for efficient order assembly
• How GTP will help the business to work smarter, not harder.
