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.
