Description du Livre

The topic of this book is the science of warehouse layout and operations. We say “science” because we develop mathematical and computer models. Too much of current warehousing practice is based on rules-of-thumb and simplistic ratios. This is fine as far as it goes; but there is much more that can be done. Most warehouses have elaborate records of exactly what every customer ordered and when. Typically this information is generated by the IT department as part of financial reporting; but this information can be used by operations to “tune” the warehouse layout and operations to the patterns of customer orders. This book shows you how to do this.
There are other books on warehousing but they mostly confine themselves to listing types of equipment, types of order-picking, and so on. This is necessary and good; but the emphasis here is not on taxonomy but on developing methodology to optimize warehouse operations.
