This research was designed to gauge the relative importance placed on improving efficiency in warehouse operations, the impact of bar-code scanner downtime occurrences on materials handling operations, and the preferred approach to service and the level of satisfaction with that approach.
The Survey revealed a number of important trends:
- One-third of the respondents have actively implemented programs designed to increase the efficiency of their warehouse operations.
- An occurrence of bar code scanners downtime has an average cost of $90,000 through incurred labor hours, reduced throughput, and lower customer satisfaction.
- Satisfaction with suppliers’ service performance doesn’t measure up on those aspects of service considered most important.
