Improving space utilisation, safety, staff productivity & reducing theft
The smart warehouse operational area can be mapped into measurement zones of 2.5 x 2.5 square meters each. Using indoor tracking analytics, operational managers will be able to gain new insights on warehouse management, which will lead to increased efficiency, staff productivity, improvement in the loading & unloading process, reduced theft, and mishandling of cargo inventory. Besides the capability to remotely monitor space utilization in different zones, the wait time of trucks in arrival and dispatch zones,, time spent in unloading areas, the temperature, & humidity, movement of workers, tracking of visitors, warehouse forklifts, and enforce rules related to the workplace norms such as keyman safety, hazardous & no go zones.

Warehouse productivity tools
The key aspects of deploying a smart warehouse system are in the design of the solutions and overall implementation time. Typical installation for these solutions would take about a week or two, depending on the total area of the warehouse.
To get these types of smart solutions to work, management commitment is a key element. Low-powered tags will have to be deployed on forklifts, pallets, bins, crates, and trolleys.
Warehouse space utilization
This is one weak area for many of the traditional warehouses in developing nations. They do not have modern systems to track the movement of forklifts, key workers, inventory arrival time, delays, and wait time at critical nodes of the operation. With the help of rule engines, alerts and notifications can be triggered to ensure timely action in the event of delays.
