What is a Water Spider?

The water spi­der plays a crit­i­cal role in help­ing an orga­ni­za­tion achieve smooth flow. They move mate­ri­als through an oper­a­tion, step in to relieve team mem­bers, and pre­vent non-rou­tine tasks from inter­rupt­ing the work­flow. Learn how the role of a water spi­der dif­fers from that of an inter­nal logis­tics deliv­ery dri­ver, the three types of water spi­der tasks, how to set their work inter­val, and how to cre­ate stan­dard work for a water spi­der role.
