Warehouse & Distribution Centre Capacity & Productivity Modeling

Many of our customers request that we assist them in modeling the capacity, or ‘useful life’ of warehouses and distribution centres. This can be a critical step in understanding the future needs of a growing business, and assessing the alternative methods of handling that growth.

Capacity models can be built to meet the specific needs of your business, and typically take account of the following:

 

Inputs

  • Product master data
  • Demand data

Key Capacity Drivers

  • Receipt velocities
  • Storage needs
  • Order picking needs
  • Despatch velocities

Primary Constraints

  • Space
  • Equipment
  • Processes
  • Human resources

Key Process Capacity Estimation

  • Receiving
  • Putaway
  • Storage
  • Picking
  • Staging
  • Despatch

Assessment of Capacity Extension Options

  • Improved DC processes
  • Changed shift patterns
  • Better use of the storage ‘cube’
  • Altered supply processes
  • Extensions to existing buildings
  • Additional facilities
