Active inventory management

Forward picking zone holds the active inventory that is planned for picking. Therefore, any forward storage space is a premium location. It becomes very important to ensure that slow-moving SKUs are removed from the system to make space for newer inventory. GreyMatter has richer insight and real time view of orders and it continuously optimizes the space in the forward pick zone to free up the premium space for more popular SKUs. GreyMatter triggers replenishment based on inventory levels at the pick locations. When the quantity in a pick location drops below its re-order point a replenishment task is generated.
