Revolutionizing Supply Chain Efficiency with Luminate Warehouse Tasking

The Challenge

After spending countless hours manually updating task priorities and assignments, a multibillion-dollar international health, hygiene, and nutritional products manufacturer of familiar consumer brands determined it was time for change.

Having experienced a successful implementation of both Blue Yonder Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Warehouse Labor Management (WLM) solutions to standardize operational processes across eleven different warehouses, they decided to continue the partnership with Open Sky Group (OSG). Together, OSG and the client would now implement Blue Yonder’s Luminate Warehouse Tasking to further improve labor utilization and dock utilization, while reducing manual tasking actions.

A key driver for the decision was the fact that the company’s current manual approach required constant monitoring and maintenance. The Blue Yonder Luminate Warehouse Tasking would automate task prioritization and assignments while simultaneously providing operational stability. Luminate Warehouse Tasking would allow leadership to focus on strategic decisions, rather than on the continuous need to manually adjust operations.

The Solution

OSG’s familiarity with the client’s business, and their enhanced insight into the requirements for success, made OSG the clear choice for this project kick-off. With over 20 associates involved, OSG integrated Luminate Warehouse Tasking seamlessly without onboarding. With a deep understanding of the client’s sites, teams, and business needs, combined with expertise in Blue Yonder Luminate solutions, OSG was the perfect partner for implementation.

The Results

The implementation of Luminate Warehouse Tasking (LWT) led to several key improvements for the company:

  • Reduced Manual Effort: The need for manual task adjustments decreased significantly, streamlining operations and improving efficiency.
  • Improved On-Time Departure: Prioritization by LWT ensures tasks crucial for on-time trailer departures are completed promptly, reducing carrier fees and ensuring timely deliveries.
  • Enhanced Dock Utilization: LWT intelligently monitors dock space and usage through the sequencing of tasks to optimize space availability and workflow.
  • Better Management of Tasks Around Weekends, holidays, and Shift Changes: LWT adapts task prioritization based on true working hours, ensuring efficient task management during weekends, holidays, and shift changes.

Conclusion

Through the partnership between the client and OSG, Luminate Warehouse Tasking has revolutionized the client’s ongoing operations. This case study underscores the power of strategic partnerships and innovative solutions to drive supply chain excellence.
