Rises in e-commerce and consumer expectations have created complex productivity issues for distribution and fulfillment centers. The popularity of e-commerce has created service level agreements that shrink delivery windows after purchases are made. For distributions centers (DCs), this means an increase in productivity and a decrease in the amount of time allocated to execute orders. DCs and fulfillment centers are no longer able to rely on old strategies to meet the new demands of consumers. They must find ways to adjust to the changing environment. There are constant changes in product demand and resources; machine learning must be able to accommodate those needs without affecting output. Operators now can rely on machine learning and sophisticated techniques that couple data analysis with shifts in resources in order to reach optimal productivity in ever-changing order fulfillment environments.
