Warehouse Slotting Software for Slotting Optimization

Warehouse slotting—managing the physical location of inventory—is critical to your workforce's ability to fill orders quickly, accurately and safely. Manhattan Associates’ Slotting Optimization software scientifically determines the best picking profile for your warehouse and enables you to make timely, intelligent adjustments as inventory trends change.

Slotting from Manhattan Associates has improved so much of our already improved operations… It all paid off extremely quickly. We started seeing improvement four months after implementation. It usually takes three or four times that long…
Jim Beck, President/CEO, Nature’s Best

Our Slotting Optimization software uses data on each product's physical characteristics and order frequency to calculate a relative value for each potential slot position within your warehouse facility. The values for all products are aggregated. It then compares millions of slot combinations against your user-configured strategies to determine the optimal layout for your warehouse.

As input data changes, such as seasonal ordering trends or new or discontinued products, Slotting Optimization can incrementally revise its recommendations to keep your warehouse at maximum efficiency without costly overhauls.

Working with our best-in-class Warehouse Management solution, Slotting Optimization can also track changing inventory to enable continual improvements. The software can be used from day one to plan racking requirements and maximize capital investments in costly warehouse slotting infrastructure.

Slotting Optimization automates and manages many critical warehouse slotting components, including:

  • Determining the best placement of inventory
  • Solving space utilization problems by determining the appropriate storage capacity and volume-balancing levels
  • Determining the appropriate amount of racking and racking type based on projected inventory levels
  • Maintaining your preferred item sequencing and family groupings
  • Importing sample sets of data and simulated picking assignments to enable advanced cost analysis and determine optimal personnel placement
  • Capturing data and simplify analysis for tracking key warehouse slotting performance indicators
  • Recommending incremental adjustments as products are added or deleted, to meet seasonal demand, or to accommodate other changes as they occur
