Webinar Series: Four Lifecycle Management Strategies for DC Success
In the never-ending push to meet rising consumer demands, distribution center (DC) operators often overlook the important role of lifecycle management. While they’re laser-focused on meeting daily fulfillment goals, many forget that their key performance indicators (KPIs) — such as uptime, throughput and resource utilization — are all intrinsically dependent upon the equipment reliability, maintenance effectiveness and performance outcomes that these programs can provide.
In June, the expert Lifecycle Support Services team from Honeywell Intelligrated will conduct a four-part On The Move webinar series designed to help improve your company’s lifecycle management strategies. From spare parts and machine control obsolescence to throughput optimization and predictive maintenance, these informative, 30-minute sessions will give you the insights to transform ineffective lifecycle initiatives into robust, value-driven programs. Plus, attendees of each webinar will receive an informative, free guide to implementing lifecycle management best practices in their operation.
How to Optimize Your Critical Path for Maximum Throughput
Tuesday, June 22 at 3 p.m. EDT (12 p.m. PDT)
DC operators rely on key components of their material handling systems to meet daily throughput targets. Maximizing the performance of this “critical path” requires continual distribution center optimization that includes: a technical review of equipment; an evaluation of current operations versus design specifications; and an analysis of key performance data. Learn how this process provides the insights to act and sustain optimum warehouse productivity levels.
Seven Best Practices to Effective Spare Parts Management
Wednesday, June 30 at 3 p.m. EDT (12 p.m. PDT)
Keeping a distribution center running at full capacity requires access to the right parts at the right time. But many DCs either don’t have the correct spare parts on-site or are unable to find them at crucial moments — whether that’s during planned maintenance or an unexpected equipment outage. Learn seven proven best practices to help you avoid getting caught without the spare parts you need to maintain your operation.
Achieve Operational Goals With Outcome-based Services
Reactive, inflexible lifecycle management programs are quickly becoming an outdated concept. Modern strategies leverage operational data and customizable programs geared toward driving site-wide effectiveness and meeting a much broader range of business metrics. Learn how programs go beyond maintenance while providing flexible staffing options to meet evolving needs — without requiring contract reviews or changes.
From Obsolete to Modern: The Upgrade Path for Machine Control Reliability
As the foundation of warehouse automation, machine control software is essential for long-term operational success. But many programmable logic controls (PLCs) and machine control platforms are in the sunsetting phases of their lifecycles. Learn how and why you should upgrade to a modern machine control platform that serves as a stable foundation upon which you can build best-fit warehouse software solutions.
