Warehouse planning and design 2021-06-20 16:56:23 Broadly speaking, warehouse management refers to economic and technical methods and activities that serve all inventory materials. The management methods used are both economical and purely technical, including the following aspects. Mainly refers to the location of the warehouse, the determination of the building area of u200bu200bthe warehouse, the layout of transportation roads and operations in the warehouse, etc. The following factors should be considered for the location of the warehouse: (1) Cost factors. What needs to be decided is whether the warehouse is close to the raw material production place or the consumption place. If a warehouse is to be established between several production places and several consumption places, a linear programming model needs to be used to minimize the freight. This of course only considers Freight. (2) Availability of venues. Whether the area of u200bu200bthe candidate site for building the warehouse meets the storage capacity. For example, it is obviously impossible to build a warehouse of 10,000 square meters in the center, so the land price must be considered. (3) Convenience of transportation. To build a comprehensive logistics center, it is obvious that the convenience of transportation needs to be emphasized. It is not appropriate to build a logistics center far away from roads, railways, waterways or airports. (4) Time factor. The establishment of an integrated logistics center is to minimize the cost of the entire supply chain and to respond effectively to customer needs. Therefore, the time limit for the delivery of goods to customers must also be considered. (5) The price of building materials. This is also a factor that has to be considered. Where to build a logistics center, a large part of the building materials are obtained locally, so the low price of building materials can also save a lot of money. The above are the factors that often need to be considered in warehouse planning. These factors must be considered together and can be solved by using the linear programming model in Advanced Operations Research. When building a database, we must also pay attention to the strategic development of the enterprise. Sometimes we need to take a long-term view. Perhaps the cost of site selection is relatively low now, but it is not conducive to the future development of the enterprise. The problem of warehouse site selection needs to be viewed from the perspective of a strategist.
