Needs Assessment and Operational Analysis

Needs Assessment from warehousing logistics experts at DAK

An important part of every distribution system design is identifying the differences between the current operational conditions and where the system needs to change to become successful. Collecting performance information, establishing a baseline and comparing the difference in order to develop a strategic plan is an essential part of intralogistics success. DAK Equipment project managers work with you to collect the necessary data and identify solutions that fill in the gaps between "good enough" and "great".

 
Space & warehouse planning

Survey of Existing/Proposed Uses of Space

Space & warehouse planning

Space planning builds on the needs assessment and operational analysis to ensure that the available area is used efficiently and effectively. Special processes and workflows must also be considered when evaluating square footage and clear height. Future growth and flexibility are additional aspects that are incorporated in surveying and evaluating the available space.

 

Inventory Survey

Now that the operational needs and space are understood, it's time to consider the inventory being processed. Number of SKU's, reserve needs by product, packaging, dimension, weight, perishability and other factors all must be carefully evaluated to ensure success. By gaining a complete understanding of a customer's inventory, DAK project managers obtain the ability to meet both strategic and tactical distribution needs.

 
Cost Reduction

Slotting Analysis

Cost Reduction

Product slotting or profiling is the calculated placement of product in a warehouse or distribution center to optimize efficiency. By identifying the most efficient placement for each item, productivity can be increased by as much as 20%. Slotting your facility can be a daunting task, but the rewards exceed the investment. When done properly, slotting can identify obsolete inventory, help reduce stock quantities, and increase throughput. DAK Equipment will work with you to carefully profile your products and operation and help you achieve all the benefits that result from a well-slotted facility.
