Rubbermaid Case Study

Project Background

Rubbermaid initiated a project to standardize warehouse management operations across 8 of its North American locations. In addition to the system, Rubbermaid sought to establish new business processes based on best practices that would reduce inventory and lower operating costs.

The Action

Scott Sheldon leveraged our Global Design Methodology to identify improvement levers, manage the overall program and accommodate an aggressive time line.

Our Global Design Methodology streamlines implementation as it sets and enforces standard operating procedures, system configurations, metric measurement, and financial reporting.

Our supply chain engineering team managed all program planning, systems design, implementation, support, and program/project management activities. These responsibilities included the setup of a programĀ  team, executive level communications, budget management, change management processes, and risk management. Additional responsibilities included the integration of various sortation systems and the implementation of an integrated RFID solution.


The project was successfully completed in 28 months and exceeded the expected benefits; each location documented productivity improvements over 10%, helping align Scott Sheldon as a long-term partner.
