June 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 roles that lifecycle management strategies play within their overall operational success. While most operators are laser-focused on meeting daily fulfillment goals, many forget that their key performance indicators (KPIs) — such as uptime, throughput and resource utilization — all depend upon the equipment reliability, maintenance effectiveness and performance outcomes that lifecycle management programs can deliver.

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 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 within their operation.

This webinar series will kick off on Wednesday, June 9 and continue with one session taking place each week for the rest of the month. Each session represents a specific strategy that, when considered as a whole, constitutes a more holistic approach to lifecycle management.

Register now for the following webinars:

Achieve Operational Goals With Outcome-based Services
Wednesday, June 9 at 3 p.m. EDT (12 p.m. PDT)
Reactive, inflexible lifecycle management programs are quickly becoming an outdated concept.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 equipment 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
Tuesday, June 15 at 2 p.m. EDT (11 a.m. PDT)
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 software solutions.

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 optimization that includes: a technical review of distribution center 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 times. 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.
