Mastering Warehouse Mechanics Order Picking, Layout, Design & Equipment Options

One key to effective warehouse design is the relative dominance of picking or storage activity.  These two warehouse functions have opposing requirements—material handling access versus space utilization—so the challenge is to find the balance that’s right for your operation.

Techniques that maximize space utilization tend to complicate picking and render it inefficient, while large storage areas increase distance and tend to reduce picking efficiency.  Ideal picking requires small stocks in dedicated, close locations, but this requirement works against storage efficiency.

Though mechanization and automation of picking, storage, and handling can compensate for these opposing requirements to a degree, this type of equipment is generally expensive to install and operate.

To complicate matters further, warehousing buffers inbound shipments from suppliers and outbound orders to customers.  Customers usually order in patterns that are not compatible with the capabilities of the warehouse’s suppliers.  The amount of storage depends on the disparity between incoming and outbound shipment patterns.

This intensive and practical seminar, mastering warehouse mechanics, will help you stay in touch with the most important concepts in warehousing/distribution facility design.
