  • 23. Consider the following…
    42.4
    million bags were mishandled or delayed in 2007 by the airlines
    13
    % of all orders are either shipped with the wrong item
    or quantity or delivered late to the customer
    13.2
    Retail shrink is estimated to be $13.2B in the US
    19
    % of items put away in a large warehouse operation whose actual location does not match the WMS
    Virtually all these errors would be eliminated by connecting the controlling enterprise application to physical world activities in real-time.

  • 51. Attributes that will see most benefit from a RTVS
    Complex multi-step material movement with extensive human involvement
    Processes that have time sensitive materials movement requirements
    Vertically integrated businesses
    Environments with wide throughput fluctuations
    Utilize returnable containers
    Commonly loose track of inventory, orders, etc..
    “Tribal knowledge creep” for operation of warehouse or factory floor
    11
  • 52. 3 phases of a RTVS deployment
  • 53. Observe Phase: Record and Replay
    Minimal change to existing processes
    Record on-the-ground activity
    Capture pick-and-place sequences, asset movement
    Pallet/tote/item cycle times
    Location cycle times
    Forklift cycle times
    Flow monitors
    Replay and understand events and points of interest
    The objective is to clearly identify and measure points in the existing material flow where high-cost errors occur
  • 54. Observe Phase: Investment needed
    Software (RTVS) Components
    Hardware Components
  • 55. Direct Phase Goals: Eliminate high cost errors
    Immediate detection and notification when errors occur
    Prevent the domino effect
    Alert users and present choices
    Integrate logic to enforce standard operating procedure sequences and best practices
    At the same time encourage initiative, not busy work
    Allow flexibility where possible - user actions may occur out of order but still be in compliance
    Define cooperative warehouse and manufacturing processes
    The objective is to provide real-time alerts and direction to catch errors as they happen and prevent them from cascading
  • 56. Direct Phase: Investment needed
    Software (RTVS) Components
    Hardware Components
  • 57. Improve Phase: Continuous process improvement
    Goals:
    Systematic record keeping
    Both common path and exception flows
    KPIs, dashboards, analytics
    Offline analysis for systemic faults
    Make process changes with confidence
    Investment needed:
    Customization: Extract, transform for data aggregation
    Customization: New process flows, analytics and KPIs
    The objective is to dynamically build out a central business information platform that grows with your evolving operational needs for real-time data.
  • 58. Re-cap: 3 phases of a RTVS deployment
  • 59. Case Study: RiteCare Pharmacy
    Products from suppliers received, associated & put-away in totes with RFID tags
    Store orders shipped with 50%less turnaround time and lesser mis-ships
    Location information used to pick remaining orders with hand-held application
    Incoming store orders cross-referenced with products received
    Additional totes slotted at warehouse, location dynamically associated based on bin tag
    Totes satisfying incoming orders directly sent to cross-dock

  • Getting Started
    Quantify the current state of your operation
    How many assets do you have in play during “normal” operations
    Quantify labor costs for ‘normal’ activities related to these assets
    Quantify labor costs associated with exception handling and error recovery activities
    Deploy an observational system
    Hardware and software to capture real data on current system
    Minimal or no change to the current processes
    Identify the low-hanging fruit which have immediate return
    Expand the observational system to eliminate errors
    Focus on the high-return items
    Automatic alerts and warnings
    Automatic reconciliation
    Refine and evolve processes over time
