Techniques to Improve TAT for Warehouse Operations

Turnaround time (TAT) is a measuring metrics concept to evaluate a production’s operation throughput. This concept defines the amount of time taken to fulfill a request. The goal is to deliver the final product to the customer in the shortest TAT while ensuring the proper allocation of resources and saving cost/ times and making higher profits.There are several reasons that the TAT can increase in warehouse operation for e.g.: workers are not working properly and following the process, and if the maximum efficiency could not be reached, the process would be delayed. Secondly, improper infrastructure could be an obstacle for the TAT reduction.
