With the advent of Siri and Alexa, we can see how artificial intelligence (AI) has become a part of our daily lives. AI is everywhere. It has become so entrenched in our lives you may not even notice that it is AI anymore.

In the warehouse, put AI to good use and it will help you improve your warehouse layout.

How?

  1. Machine Learning
  2. Optimize location of high velocity items
  3. Analyze processes and suggest improvements

 

Machine Learning

Computers have the ability to analyze vast quantities of data. Use the abundance of data that you have from your inventory management system. Let AI determine which items are purchased most frequently. Use it to see which products are commonly purchased together. Keep track of inventory that sold and allow AI to automatically schedule a reorder of stock before you run out. Knowing this information will allow you to make informed decisions.

 

Optimize Location of High Velocity Items

Knowing which items sell the fastest will help you when you organize your warehouse. Those items which sell the fastest should be placed in easy to access locations that require the least amount of movement through the warehouse. This will create a faster and more efficient pick.

 

Analyze Processes and Suggest Improvements

If you use AI to track employee productivity, you will learn a lot. With the information on hand, you will be able to analyze the methods of your most productive employee as compared to the least productive. AI will actually provide suggestions on how to improve your processes based on this information.
