Turning to Lucas to Support Growth

The Objective

Owens & Minor has consistently focused on improving operations in its DCs through a combination of process improvement and technology investments. Those efforts had plateaued, and the company was facing rising costs due to increasing volumes of orders for less than case quantities. The challenge was to improve productivity and reduce the costs for picking low unit of measure (LUM) items, and to increase picking accuracy compared to their existing RF-based process which required scanning every pick line.

After we rolled out the plan and implemented it, we were extremely suprised in how easy it was to implement. We were very happy with how easy it was to train people on the system and how easy it was to use.
