“Switch On Opportunity”
Legrand said: Help us implement a new warehouse management system and operational processes in a consolidated facility. Our goal is to reduce our supply chain spend.
Scott Sheldon engineers said: We can do that.
Scott Sheldon has served as a strategic supply chain partner for Legrand/Pass & Seymour for more than five years, providing engineering, consulting and technology solutions. In 2009, Legrand asked Scott Sheldon to assist with the implementation of a consolidated facility that brought warehouse systems and operational processes under one roof. The greenfield site combines several Legrand operating companies, products and customers.
The “ah-ha” moment
We recognized that in order to meet the project goals, Legrand would need a provider that could develop, execute and then manage a holistic cost reduction strategy that would also improve service.
The engineers at Scott Sheldon applied a fast-track WMS implementation methodology to quickly design the proper warehouse configuration to support their standard business processes.
Scott Sheldon engineers provided expertise and leadership in these areas:
- Greenfield facility layout and racking configuration
- Warehouse and transportation management system implementation and support
- Product velocity analysis and slotting
Legrand saved more than $800,000, developed a ‘distribution excellence’ roadmap and conducted an assessment that informed recommendations for a WMS go-forward strategy that met the unique needs of their business.
