Siemens Energy warehouse located in Suwanee, GA runs out of space in the Precision Lab due to rapid growth, seasonal peaks, and poor space utilization. The objective of the project is to redesign the Precision Lab layout and improve the tool assessment process to increase efficiency, productivity, and profitability.
The first solution is to add shelves in the Precision lab as well as the Torque lab and reduce the honeycombing effect on the shelves, which results in a 120%-150% increase in the storage space. We propose adding Tablets that include barcode scanner features to reduce the time spent on the tool assessment process by entering data in the system electronically rather than manually. Our last proposed solution is to include booklets with toolkits to reduce the number of items lost or damaged. As a result of this project, we have an increase in storage space and a reduction in costs and processing times, which will have a significant positive impact on the warehouse operations and accommodate future growth.
