ShiftLaunch | October 12th, 2020
Austin, TX – October 12, 2020
Warehouse operations frequently see between 15% and 30% of unrecoverable productivity loss during the first hour of a shift. CognitOps has added its ShiftLaunch tool to its Align product to help businesses start fast and stay at maximum efficiency throughout the day.
Businesses continue to face eCommerce spikes, aggressive shipping cutoffs, and labor cost and availability challenges. COVID-19 protocols such as social distancing are compounding these issues. CognitOps worked with its subscribers to deliver the industry’s first start-of-shift optimizer to drive productivity at no charge. CognitOps is committed to innovating not only warehouse solutions but how businesses procure and leverage the platform.
CognitOps designed and developed ShiftLaunch as part of its continuous product release commitment using its proprietary MLOps framework to deliver immediate value and 100% active usage. ShiftLaunch incorporates AI-driven forecasts and productivity analyses to recommend changes that are most likely to leave the warehouse in a state most closely matching the desired starting conditions for the next shift. Some of the critical features of ShiftLaunch include plain-text and analytics-enriched guidance around:
- Work release guidance
- Initial labor allocation
- Equipment activation
By “priming the pump” for the start of the next shift, ShiftLaunch eliminates the slow ramp-up typically seen at the beginning of shift, launching the operation into a stratosphere of productivity that will set them up for success through the end of the shift.
