In one particular instance, our team identified an opportunity to improve the picking process. We had 35-40 pickers performing the same process in almost as many ways -- some ways effective and some not. We asked, "Why are we walking all over the warehousing picking every unit for one box, when we have a conveyor system that can bring the box to the pickers and eliminate the wasteful motion?" Through leader standard work, kaizen events, picking patterns, and other applications learned from SCL courses, our team was able to improve flat picking productivity from 50 units per hour to 130 per hour.
