RightFIT Methodology Increases Order Fulfillment Success
The new RightFIT™ methodology from Conveyco Technologies provides organizations with a seven, step-by-step process to assure project success. This process allows for a more efficient execution while helping to address future growth and meet or exceed the business case.
The necessity for converting warehouse and distribution center operations from overhead to a profit center has never been more critical. By focusing on each segment of the journey, the RightFIT methodology helps guide
organizations to determine their best solution.
“By following the RightFIT methodology, Conveyco is able to provide customers with both an immediate impact and a long-term investment which aligns on strategic goals and reduces operational costs in the supply chain,” says Ed Romaine, VP Marketing & Business Development. He continued, “This process is part of a commitment to subscribing to a customer for life mentality and practice.”
The seven step RightFIT methodology includes:
- Deep dive data analysis
- Design Objectives
- Alternative Analysis
- Business Case
- Clear Path to Success
- Execution Roadmap
- Life Cycle Nexus
By performing a comprehensive data deep dive analysis, creating models that illustrate a 360-degree understanding of the existing state of the 4 walls within an operation and incorporate the “nuances” which make an organization unique and loved by its customers, you have the foundation to build success. Next, the organization’s strategic goals and metrics are applied to identify the shape and scale of systems, processes, as well as resources required to meet future demands.
By understanding the current metrics required to define success of the future state, an evaluation of technologies, concepts and configurations is conducted. An emphasis is placed on a solution that optimizes people, processes and systems. In fact, alternative solutions are reviewed and analyzed to determine the very best fit for an organization’s requirements.
Using an outcome-based approach and RightFIT methodology generates a business case focused on delivering of the solution’s benefits, accommodating growth and flexibility and allowing a phased capital investment. A clear path to success is set and defined by creating a holistic vision that aligns the scope of work with all available resources. An execution roadmap is set which includes process documentation to hardware and software integration, phased realization testing and go-live extensive training.
The final step is the creation of the life cycle nexus. By working together with client partners to keep system up time and performance at peak efficiencies, accountability is enhanced along with the ability to move beyond the old design build paradigm. This allows the RightFIT methodology to help exceed clients ever changing and increasing demands.
