First, look at the inventory: Is it pallets? boxes? SKUs? No, it is money. It is money in a bank. The bank must be secure. No one should roam the warehouse and take parts for samples/sales unless they notify the warehouse staff. It is money you are taking! One of the root causes for variations in cycle counting on hand in the warehouse versus on hand in the computer is: theft!

The Elimination of Waste, Increasing efficiency, and Achieving Cost Reduction through Interleaving of Tasks

in Blog 

Interleaving

Task interleaving is designed to reduce deadheading, or waste in movements through the warehouse—a Lean doctrine, i.e., when a worker, for example, picks products and drops them off at a dock and then returns to the picking area without performing any useful tasks along the way. In most operations, some workers are dedicated to picking, while others are dedicated to put-away. Task interleaving is most common in operations with workers that have permission to do both. So instead of a warehouse associate returning all the way across a warehouse to a pick zone, they may stop at a nearby receiving dock, pick up a pallet for put-away, and then store it in a location near where their next pick occurs.
