Buffering and Sequencing
Manufacturing companies without buffer storage may experience waiting times between individual production steps resulting in expensive downtime.
In addition, many warehouses lose valuable space when buffering customer orders ready for dispatch in the shipping area. Manual storage on pallets or in static shelves is chaotic, takes up more space than necessary, and requires longer travel distances and search times for personnel.
The implementation of automated systems for intermediate storage and consolidation of materials and goods ensures safe, fast, and smooth material flows in the production and shipping departments. What type of buffer storage best suits your needs, saves space, and can efficiently integrate into an existing warehouse?
