Today at CSCMP EDGE, HighJump is showcasing the top benefits of dynamic waves.
Handling unique, one-off online orders coming in anytime, from anywhere, is big enough a challenge for today’s distribution centers. Combining this with traditional store replenishment and drop shipping, while striving to meet expectations for faster, cheaper deliveries adds to the complexity. With the right process in place, these challenges become opportunities. This is dynamic waves.
Deploying a WMS with dynamic waves enhances the following:
- Throughput: Waveless processing eliminates the pauses that occur as waves start and end, upping the amount of orders fulfilled.
- Labor management: Work orders are constantly released, eliminating underutilization that typically occurs between waves.
- Picking: Operators receive real-time notifications to adjust unit numbers and re-route as orders arise. Picking trips marginalize as the queue is constantly re-evaluated.
- Same-day delivery: Traditional waves require a firm cut-off day to plan resources, often a day or more. With tasks released in real time, dynamic waves allow same-day processing.
HighJump’s Warehouse Management System is the first to offer dynamic waves. An example of HighJump’s capabilities with waveless order processing is Fox Racing, which improved picking accuracy and drastically increased productivity.
