Having an important growth during the last years that triggered an expansion if their factory and warehouse, the client asked us to calculate optimum warehouse model to stock finished goods for both infraestructures and processes. To start with this project, a previous phase should be done to define warehouse sizing: a deep analysis of production planning processes.
After analysing current warehouse processes and identifying infrastructure and equipments limitation, we used information obtained during previous project phase regarding to stock sizing and flows definition, such as volumes to be handled, mono and multi client references and logistic handling units used for picking.
The client requested us the analysis and definition of infrastructures and handling processes of auxiliary manufacturing materials. For this, a study was made considering the quantity to be consumed of auxiliary material by manufacturing lot, taking into account the defined stock policies (project made for finished product).
