It might be hard to believe, but there are things that warehouses and fulfillment centers can learn from retail. From time to time retail operations undertake a process called “reset.” The Chronicle explains that a reset is a whole-store rearrangement of products that can include everything from rearranging shelves to moving gondolas, to remodeling the entire store. Why do this? It has to do with the flow – both the flow of customers through the store as they select their products, in the flow of products from the stockroom to check out. In retail stores manufacturers compete for space at eye level, it is a premium that drives sales. When a store’s sales decline or merchandise simply sits, it might be time to change things up and do some rearranging.
