Of all the areas of a business, one of the most directly tied to operational efficiency is the warehouse. Identifying the right ergonomic warehouse equipment makes operations more effective and comfortable for employees.
In a previous post, we’ve discussed the basics of workplace ergonomics for the warehouse. Managers can help their employees avoid strain and injury by removing unnecessary movements, excessive weight, and hazards from the packaging line. There is more that can be done to improve the packaging line beyond these core optimizations. The concept of Pack Space Excellence covers several key areas.
Put simply, the optimization of both solution design and packaging area space to create the most efficient environment possible. It breaks down into several core elements that can be balanced by professional integrators. Below, we look at what these areas are, and how a holistic approach to optimization can impact them.
A pack space excellence assessment can help determine where a system can be included within the warehouse. Because no two workers are exactly alike, this might mean the need for adjustable configurations. Customized integrations also help to keep a low profile and avoid the possibility of accidents.
Within this case example, the original layout of the packing area was poorly optimized for workers’ bodies. Awkward movements required to access key packaging items often resulted in bending and twisting, leading to injury and absenteeism.
Space within a packing environment is a critical resource. When evaluating solutions for packaging, how much room they will occupy within a warehouse can have direct correlation to economic efficiency. Space that is taken up by packaging materials and equipment could be used more effectively. For example, allowing employees to move around the warehouse or housing inventory being shipped to the end-consumer.
Within this scenario, limited space was available within the warehouse to increase the number of packing tables. Any newly integrated wrapping solutions would need to become part of the existing infrastructure. This made Geami HV into the ideal system, perfectly suited to be located within the existing footprint of the pack-station.
increased productivity is the final point of the pack space excellence triangle. Custom integrations allow packers to make more efficient movements and give them freedom to navigate the warehouse without obstruction.
Within this scenario, the plastic air bag system in place within the warehouse was creating a bottleneck in productivity. The packing line was revamped with a focus on automation and improvement in output. By replacing a plastic airbag solution with a paper void fill system, environmental improvements were also made.
