Program and Project Management Services: Lead for all program and project management services as well a analysts for a Greenfield WMS implementation and Roll Out – IT and Operational.

WMS Implementations:

  • Implementation of Manhattan SCALE WMS system into a provincial distribution centre – 75,000 sq/ft, Omni Channel with eCom and Retail Store replenishment. DC has over 8,000 sku’s with requiring strict Lot/Date control as well as a returns process. 
  • Roll out #2, of a much larger facility. Design is currently in progress by BIS.

MS365 / Shopify Integration: Integration with MS 365 ERP systems.

SCI Reporting: Reporting, visibility, and alerting.

LMS: Implementation of DC optimized slotting and Operations management reporting and SOP’s to meet customer KPI’s.

WMS RFP/RFI Execution: Analyzed and defined current state and future state requirements and produced a business requirements document (BRD).  Managed and executed an extensive Tier 1 WMS RFP with BIS 6 Step methodology using Matrix weighted scoring to pick best WM and develop gap list prior to contract negotiations.

SAP ERP Regression Testing: Extensive documenting of how the system worked in its current state, followed by detailed execution of testing the system after a full system upgrade.

Performance Testing:  modeled, designed, built MHE testing scaffolding + processes, and executed load testing to accurately simulate peak season volumes to validate hardware/server, network, database, and software performance of the company’s warehouse management systems (and associated integration).

Distribution Processes:  Performed a full 360 of all distribution, MHE, and product flow operational processes, and created future state designs / BPs.  MHE processes included Pick-and-Pass Zone Pick, Put-to-Light, Case Pick to Induction, and Flow-through Ship Sortation.

Product Flow Strategy:  Implemented new processes for more streamlined mechanized cross dock operations.  Implemented new flow strategy for mechanized flow through operations.  Implemented improved processes for reverse logistics.

Mechanization:  Rapistan Rapidpick Pick to Light system used for Batch Put to Store operation (250 Store Put Locations).  Pick-and-Pass Area and 24 Lane Ship Sorter (Pop Up Divert) with Rapistan Conveyor, and Custom Written Sortation Software.

Warehouse Management:  Built best practices and detailed future state operating procedures.  Assisted in the design and implementation of interfaces to SAP and other company host systems.  Assisted in processes and interfaces for integration with mechanization – pick-and-pass, put-to-light, and ship sortation.

Integration:  Assisted in integration analysis, design, development support, and testing between various company systems.

Distribution Processes:  Overhaul and redesign of an early MARC WMS system.  Implemented detailed processing procedures for satellite storage & replenishment, receiving, putaway, mechanized/MHE replenishment (pallet-flow, case-flow, conveyor), pick-to-tote, break-pack, full case, full pallet, pick sortation, non-conveyables, packing, value-added-services, ship sortation, loading, and carrier manifesting.  Managed all specifications from design to customer sign off, software development, testing (system and integration), training, implementation and support.  Managed full system DC deployment.

Mechanization:  Beumer tilt tray sortation for pick/pack sort, and Mathews conveyors systems and slat shoe sortation for case-flow replenishment, case pick, induction tote staging, in-line scale interface for parcel weight/manifest, and parcel ship sorter for carrier and zip zone skipping.

Order Splitting Reduction:  Analyzed order patterns by commodity type and implemented procurement procedures (product profiling methods) to locate products at the “correct” distribution center.  Reduced shipment splits from 37 per hundred to 16 per hundred.

Order Sourcing Methods:  Implemented improved order sourcing methods and shorts reprocessing methods, to reduce carrier costs (optimization of zip zone / service level / carrier cost).

Supply Chain Visibility and Purchasing Procedures:  Implemented improved replenishment procedures with Procurement group.  Main thrust was increased inventory flow visibility via implementation of real-time supply-chain visibility solutions.

Demand Forecasting:  Implemented I2 Demand Planner for three vendors.  Implemented business processes with Merchandising and Buying groups.
