Storing stock in the least space is essential for controlling storage costs. SEQOS configurable rules allow or disallow mixing, depending on type of product and product attributes, such as mixing (or prohibiting) ranges of expiry dates, receive dates, batches, lots, style-colour-size, and many other product types and attributes.
Good warehouse layout can significantly reduce operating costs by minimising travel times for operation personnel. Slotting the warehouse stock of the fastest-moving products near the despatch area reduces the total time for the day’s picking. SEQOS analyses product throughput to classify the products, typically ABC Inventory Classification, but can extend to any number of classifications.
Setting up the most storage locations in the least physical space is achieved by reducing the number of aisles or aisle widths and using the full height of the warehouse (minus the required distance from fire sprinklers). Location configurations include Drive-in racking, Double-deep racking, Pallet flow racking, Black stack, Vertical carousels.
Storage location zones may be configured according to products’ different storage and handling requirements such as frozen, refrigerated, secure, and hazardous. SEQOS ensures stock is always stored in its correct storage location zone.
Numerous safeguards can be configured in SEQOS to ensure that goods are not inadvertently released from the bonded area.
SEQOS space management software helps warehouse managers optimise their space by providing visibility into real-time inventory levels, analysing current inventory storage configurations, and providing insights into how to improve space utilisation. The software also enables easy tracking of storage allocation changes, planning and forecasting warehouse space needs, and improved accuracy in locating products. SEQOS’s space optimisation features include automated storage and retrieval systems, automated slotting and binning of products, and intelligent pallet racking.
1. Bulk Storage: This method involves the storage of large quantities of one product in a single location.
2. Pallet Racking: This is a standard warehouse storage method where pallets are stacked on racks and stored for easy access.
3. Shelf Storage: This storage method involves using shelves to store small items and components.
4. Bin Storage: Use this method to store smaller items.
5. Automated Storage and Retrieval System: This automated system uses robots to move materials within the warehouse.
6. Vertical Carousels: These automated systems rotate shelves to store and retrieve items.
7. Mobile Shelving: This storage method uses shelves mounted on motorized carts that move along a track.
8. Flow Racking: This storage method uses a series of rollers to move products along a conveyor.
9. Pick Modules: This storage method uses modular shelving units to store and organize items.
10. Pushback Racking: This storage method uses vertical rails to store products on inclined shelves.
The SEQOS storage management software can increase revenue by improving storage utilisation efficiency. It can maximise the amount of storage available for use and provide better visibility into the utilisation of storage resources. This can help to manage the storage resources better and make more efficient use of them, resulting in cost savings and increased revenue. Additionally, storage management software can help identify areas of potential cost savings, such as unused storage, which can reduce storage costs and increase revenue.
1. Analyse and Optimize Storage Space: Analyse current warehouse space and identify areas for optimization for more efficient storage.
2. Utilize Automation: Automation can help reduce human error and increase efficiency in the warehouse. Invest in automated systems such as automated storage and retrieval systems.
3. Implement a Warehouse Management System (WMS): A WMS can help streamline processes and improve data accuracy, allowing you to manage warehouse inventory better.
4. Utilize Vertical Space: Installing racks, shelving, and other vertical storage systems can help maximize the available space in a warehouse.
5. Conduct Regular Inventory Checks: Regularly checking inventory levels and tracking item locations helps ensure accuracy and prevent out-of-stock situations.
6. Train Employees: Educate employees on the importance of proper storage practices and the best ways to maximize the available space.
SEQOS WMS helps manage space by organising, using, and optimising the available space within a warehouse facility to meet the organisation’s current and future storage and operational needs.
With the SEQOS technology, you can track inventory, determine the most efficient storage methods, and adjust and monitor the use of space over time to maximise efficiency and minimise waste.
