Trending data in order fulfillment allows distribution center (DC) operators to identify patterns that can be used to prevent costly downtime. Visibility into these patterns within an organization can help pinpoint repetitive issues, such as jams on a sorter, and address underlying root causes. Honeywell Intelligrated is currently engaged with customers, gathering real data from their DCs and applying machine-learning algorithms in order to provide insights into asset performance, utilization, and productivity.
The Connected Distribution Center by Honeywell Intelligrated enables a predictive approach to asset reliability, allowing DC operators to fix issues before they happen. The system collects data on asset health to uncover early warning indicators of possible equipment failure. When an issue is detected, you’ll receive alerts right to your phone, allowing you to respond quickly and eliminate costly downtime. Learn more about the power of a connected platform.
Labor management software (LMS) is an essential tool for increasing employee productivity and maintaining high customer service levels. Learn how LMS by Honeywell Intelligrated can be used to foster trust and transparency with a customer, which in turn can boost retention rates and satisfaction.

The rise of e-commerce means that there are now more and more orders coming in during peak timeframes, with customers expecting faster, cheaper, and more accurate order fulfillments. To improve efficiencies, automate manual processes and fully optimize fulfillment operations, you must navigate a labyrinth of workers, material handling equipment and numerous software systems. Learn how the Momentum™ warehouse execution system (WES) by Honeywell Intelligrated can help.
Rick Graff, senior product manager, discusses the different uses of shuttles in a distribution center. Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) help you move higher volumes of product and make the best possible use of valuable storage space. Powered by Honeywell Intelligrated’s innovative Momentum™ warehouse execution system, AS/RS are a key component of integrated systems that combine the right mix of automation, software and labor to optimize the productivity and throughput of unique operations.
Jason Franklin discusses the range of productivity gains possible through the implementation of labor management software (LMS). Throughput gains are defined by the handling characteristics of the actual product and the starting point of the workforce. LMS not only defines the performances of individuals, but it also provides coaching and incentives, monitors work consumption, and determines where labor would best be utilized.
For every 100 people earning $15/hour, a 10 percent performance improvement will result in $225,000 in annual operational savings.
By connecting processes, workers and equipment within the DC and across the enterprise, companies have the power to make informed decisions, cut costs, and deliver the highest possible customer service levels.
The Connected Distribution Center supports a predictive, condition-based monitoring approach to asset management, helping retailers increase system reliability, reduce downtime incidents, and lower maintenance costs.
