Whether planning a new DC or upgrading existing operations, product and sales data drive automation strategies, technologies
from Supply Chain Digest
Based on the amount of activity at MODEX 2012, it is apparent that many companies are giving some serious thought to upgrading their DC operations. Seeking a bigger "bite-of-the-apple" they are looking to launch new marketing and sales programs that will impact on current order fulfillment operations. What is not so apparent (to many of these companies) is that they will need to become much more intimate with the critical data that drives order fulfillment strategies and automation technologies. They must become aware of what data is needed, what data is available within their business systems, and how accurate that data is. Another critical question in that regard: Does the company's historical data base represent what future activity will be? If not, how will it be different?
