If humans are machines, we are error-producing machines. We can’t help it; that’s the way we’re made. Automation can reduce human error—by a large magnitude.
If a data clerk enters data manually from one system to another, errors creep in, at a rate of one per every 300 keystrokes, according to the Multichannel Merchant. But if the data is electronically transferred by Deposco’s warehouse management system, you’ll see increased accuracy.
That’s one way a warehouse management system (WMS) increases accuracy. Automated, paperless picking instructions lead to fewer errors. Scanning bin and location numbers helps, too. Bar code scanning reduces errors to one per every 3 million scans, according to the Multichannel Merchant.
Numbers you can expect to go up: pick accuracy rates, shipping accuracy rates, inventory accuracy, order fulfillment capacity, and perfect order rates. Numbers you can expect to go down: errors, order cycle times, and dock-to-stock cycle time.
