Successful distribution centers realize the importance of combining lean processes with automated technologies with a warehouse design tailored to their needs. Order fulfillment operations in many industries such as healthcare, food and beverage and consumer goods must meet orders accurately and efficiently. Designing order fulfillment processes with the most streamlined path while incorporating automated technologies maximizes productivity and profitability to support business growth.
Lean Processes Provide Streamlined Distribution
Warehouse design should include value stream mapping exercises to evaluate velocity movement with SKU analysis and identify areas for improvement. Eliminating wasted touches with a lean, streamlined order flow is mandatory to achieve success in order fulfillment and distribution processes. A streamlined order path should include:
Your warehouse design with lean, streamlined order flow must be completely tailored to your needs.

The acquisition and merger of a medical supply manufacturer required a new warehouse distribution center to be constructed and designed with streamlined warehouse automation. The Numina Group is a recognized leader in warehouse design and implementation of automated technologies and was more than happy to help accommodate this returning client with automated warehouse solutions.
Numina provided a thorough and detailed new warehouse design for the original client project which entailed supporting over 2,000 SKUs in a temperature-controlled environment, requiring refrigeration and ambient temperature control. This distribution center had to meet high volume production requirements consisting of processing 33 million bottles of product annually, with distribution to all 50 states through five different supply chain channels.
Warehouse Designed for Streamlined Automation
The Numina Group provided a warehouse design which encompassed converting their current 280,000 square foot facility into a new 100,000 square foot facility, with automated technologies and reduced labor touches. Resizing the operation was the biggest challenge for Numina who embraced the opportunity to utilize the entire cube of the 100,000 square foot facility.
Numina’s skilled warehouse design engineers conducted several analytical studies based on combined order volumes with five-year projections. We recommended and developed a multi-level pick module design utilizing the optimum picking technology for maximum automation. Our recommendations provided the ROI the executive management team was looking for while meeting order fulfillment requirements. Numina provided automated warehouse solutions which resulted in a reduction of pick labor expense by at least 50 percent with an increase in productivity doubling from 110 lines per hour (LPH) to 222 LPH.

Real-Time Warehouse Control and Execution
RDS integrates with your existing warehouse management system to direct order fulfillment applications in the most efficient, streamlined process available. WMS integrated with WES-WCS provides maximum efficiency and automation.
WMS systems send order picking details to the WCS, which builds order waves to evenly distribute warehouse tasks. Batch carts may be incorporated to reduce walk time to further streamline the picking process. With voice picking incorporated in the WCS, voice commands direct operators to load carts or totes from pick zones from a lightweight, wearable Wi-Fi computer using natural voice commands. High volume SKUs can be directed onto an automated conveyor system which may incorporate automated print and apply labeling or inline scanning, weight and dimension verification.
The WCS and WMS communicate seamlessly, with your WMS system continuing to update inventory records while the warehouse control system provides added value such as labor management and productivity reporting.
Numina Group provides detailed time studies to determine the best warehouse automation solution for your order fulfillment process. Our warehouse execution and control system (WES-WCS) seamlessly integrates with your WMS to provide maximum automation and return on investment.

A good warehouse design requires both a short-term implementation phase along with long-term defined goals, both aligned with the company’s overall business objectives. Companies must first determine their multi-year goals and objectives across the entire organization and realize where they are in their long-term plan. Without this overall long-term approach, businesses will only yield incremental, limited returns and benefits that may be costly to change and incorporate their long-term goals when realized.
A proper warehouse design should assess which improvements can be made across all aspects of the operation, picking, packing, and shipping. It may seem easiest to correct the low hanging fruit, usually the section with the highest touches. However, correcting one aspect of the warehouse usually forces a bottleneck into another. The best approach would be to consider your workflow as a lot size of one, and streamline your processes across all warehouse operations. This is accomplished by performing an in-depth valuation with value stream mapping practices to clearly identify wasted touches and excess steps in each process.
