Middleby Corporation Uses TransLution™ Software to Manage Spare Parts for Appliances: The Middleby Corporation is a world leader in three business segments: commercial cooking, industrial baking and processing, and residential appliances. After the successful roll-out of TransLution™ Software in the Residential Appliances segment of the business, Middleby elected to implement TransLution™ to manage the spare parts for these appliances. The Middleby parts department ships approximately 250 sales orders per day, in a warehouse with about 20 000 bins containing 15 000 parts – each with a unique item code. With so many codes and such a large warehouse to manage, the goal of the project was to not only track items, but also to optimize labor usage among warehouse staff. TransLution™ was the ideal system for the project.
