We are going to deal with “Storage Space Planning”

We are going to deal with “Storage Space Planning” considering the turnover rate of the products. Suppose the storage area for the warehouse is designed as shown in the following figure. A single input/output (I/O) point serves the storage area. All movement is in full pallet quantities. The storage area is subdivided into 10’×10’ storage bays. Three classes of products (A, B, and C) will be stored. Please classify the items given in the table below. Note that Items 1-10 require 10’×10’ storage bays and the remaining items require 5’×5’ storage bays. Finally, calculate the expected average distance traveled for the dedicated storage layout.

Item 12 34 56 7Turnover Rate (per week) 50% 60% 70% 80% 50% 50% 50% Item 89 10 11 12 13 14 Turnover Rate 20% 20% 20% 0%
