Fm Page 17 Wednesday, November 19, 2003 2:43 PM Order-Fulfillment and Across-the-Dock Objectives PACKAGE WEIGHING AND 17 MANIFEST At an order-fulfillment or across-the-dock operation, the next activities are the shipping carton weighing and manifest activities. The customer-order shipping carton weighing and manifest activities’ objectives are to ensure that each customer carton receives the proper transport fee or postage; list the customer-discrete identification number and weight; send the package by the most cost-effective transport method; have the proper documentation in the customer-order shipping carton; obtain the exact weight and manifest per the customer-discrete identification number; and verify that the customer-order was completed by your operation.

Cube your employee or automatic pick machine work. Provide queue space. Level the work volume over the week work days. Use part-time employees. Apply the golden zone theory to the SKU pick positions. Change from a paper order pick document method to a self-adhesive label, paperless order pick, or automatic order pick method. Develop a good equipment layout, piece flow, and facility layout. Provide clean and clear aisles. Ensure well lighted aisles. Change from a human-paced to a machine-paced method.

This philosophy has all your promotional, seasonal, special sale, and fast-moving SKUs in one pick aisle or pick line zone. This SKU arrangement increases your order picker hit concentration (picks per aisle number) and hit density (hits per SKU number). A high hit concentration and hit density means high order picker and replenishment employee productivity due to a short travel distance between two pick positions. The key to an accurate, efficient, and on-time small-item, flat wear, GOH, carton, or pallet order-fulfillment operation with the power SKUs in one area method is to have the storage pieces available to replenish a pick position and to have a completed customer-order or picked SKU take-away transport method.
