Studies show that 50-60% of warehouse workers’ time is spent traveling. The process of multi-task interleaving involves executing multiple tasks in a single trip. As a warehouse worker finishes a task, the system determines the next task based on overall warehouse and task priority as well as to proximity to the work area. The Datex Labor Management System reviews changing priorities and conditions and can bypass tasks that would potentially cause congestion in specific locations. Typical interleaving tasks include receiving, repacking, shipping and more.
The broader the list of potential tasks that are defined in the task management engine, the more possibilities for potential work assignments. This increases the opportunities to efficiently reduce deadheading, efficiently combine tasks and enhance labor productivity.
Datex Multi-Task Interleaving helps your business “do more with less”. By optimizing the amount of work your labor resources can do by handling multiple tasks in close proximity, there is less wasted time and effort.
Using task interleaving may lead to changes in scheduling, flow
