What You Will Learn

Much of the equipment installed in warehouses and distribution centers through the 1900s and 2000s is beginning to show its age and approach End-of-Life (EOL) or End-of-Service (EOS). In many warehouses, downtime is increasing. Spare parts may be getting harder to find. Ambient noise levels are rising. As such conditions increase, failure is inevitable, but cost pressure drive warehouse managers to try to squeeze maximum performance from existing assets. This strategy may deliver short term cost savings, but increases risk to sustainable success. However, implementing a rational, engineering-based modernization approach can maximize savings and reduce risks in the near, medium and long term.
 

Key Takeaways

• Reasons/justifications to invest in existing assets now
• Options to consider when upgrading assets.
