A large proportion of the SCCG projects centre around the successful warehouse operational design or improvement completed by our specialist warehouse consultants.

Our team of warehouse consultants includes experts in warehouse management system (WMS) specification, selection, and implementation. 

Our WMS consultants can help with:

  • Maturity analysis & initial business case for change
  •  WMS strategy (or surrounding strategic elements)
  •  Process mapping & requirements gathering
  •  Significant experience running WMS tenders
  •  Assistance with commercial & contractual negotiations
  •  Implementation assistance

How can we help?

Using the planning base information, our warehouse consultants can estimate the required size of warehouse, considering each area e.g., reserve storage, picking, packing, inbound and outbound marshalling, returns processing, value added services, allowance for forklift charging, offices, staff welfare etc. This can then be refined through a full warehouse design process.

Where long-term / full-time programme management is required, we provide experienced programme managers from our professional network.

Our Warehouse Services

Our warehouse consultants have the right experience and skills to address all these matters, and to do that we have developed a range of services:

Warehouse Operational Review

Our warehouse consultants will spend time on site to understand the current processes, layout, systems, equipment, and resourcing.  We will walk through the processes in detail, for example goods in including new product procedures, put-away, pick-face replenishment, picking, packing, marshalling, despatch, returns, value added services, stock checking etc.  Based on this we can assess the current warehouse’s storage capacity, throughput capacity and productivity performance.  We will make recommendations as to how capacity and productivity can be improved, process changes, recommend investments, and provide supporting cost / benefit analysis.

Warehouse Sizing

Working closely with the client and our analytical team, our warehouse consultants will analyse business data such as product master files, order line data, receipts data and stock data for peak and average periods. 

The output of this will be a material flow analysis – a “day in the life” of the warehouse operation, to which growth and other anticipated business changes are applied to reach a ‘planning base’. Using the planning base information, our warehouse consultants can estimate the required size of the warehouse, considering each area, e.g., reserve storage, picking, packing, inbound and outbound marshalling, etc. 

Warehouse Technology Evaluation and Process Design

Following on from an initial operational review and high-level sizing exercise, we will undergo a warehouse technology evaluation, from which our warehouse consulting team will arrive at several options that may be suitable. 

These might include more manual options such as multi-order trolley picking, semi-automated options such as conveyorized zone picking, flexible automated solutions based on autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and fixed automation solutions such as automated storage and retrieval (AS/RS) systems. For each option, we will determine the type and quantity of equipment required, the capital equipment and one-off costs and develop a task-based resource model to support our assessment of operating costs.

Warehouse Layout Design

Implementing the most efficient and relevant warehouse design can be profound as it can improve capacity and productivity and lead to significant financial benefits. SCCG’s warehouse consultants have the knowledge and understanding to implement a bespoke warehouse design required to operate an efficient distribution centre.

WMS Consultancy

From reviewing and determining your Warehouse Management System (WMS) specifications and process mapping to selection and implementation, our consultants can support you in all areas concerning Warehouse Management System.

Implementation Support / Project Management

For clients looking for help beyond the initial design stage, SCCG’s Warehouse Consultants offer ongoing support to ensure your warehousing operations are continuously running well.

Services include transition planning to minimise disruption, coordinating with stakeholders to deliver the programme on time and budget, setting up governance and support with tactical tasks such as defining racking location codes and supporting equipment procurement through structure specification and tender processes.

Where long-term/full-time programme management is required, we provide experienced programme managers from our professional network.
