Warehouse Design - Open Model

 Welcome to Fhyzics, an international channel partner of APICS, USA. As an     international channel partner based out in India, we offer end to end support for       CSCP, CLTD and CPIM certifications. In this video we are going to discuss about   various aspects of the warehouse design and major functions of the warehouse.    Traditionally warehouse services for three functions: receiving for storage & shipment     of goods that are received here and then to be sold then prepare for the shipment. A    warehouse has the two sides one is supply side and the other is demand side and the    supply side is occupied by various suppliers as well as manufacturers. The same way    the demand side is occupied by your customers and consumers. On both supply side   and demand side we have variability due to various factors. On the supply side the   variability may be due to the production disturbances in a manufacturing facility    and on the demand side the variability could be due to change in customer demand    over a PDF.

We have variability both on supply side and the demand side, how then do you ensure a smoother supply chain. For this we introduce a warehouse in between that is, between supply side and demand side and this is the main value addition of these warehouses. The key purpose of the Warehouse is to observe the shock in the supply chain. With the introduction of the warehouse we introduce a smoother transition. Across the world various authors and concepts have come out with various prescriptive models for the design of the warehouse but unfortunately the problem is these models are very successful in certain situations and the wizardry fades in other conditions. So to avoid this I recommend an open model for our consideration which is not based on any pre-defined model but based on detailed analysis of the various conditions in which the warehouse has to function both in present and the future. All this goes as aspects that get into the design of the warehouse.

In an open model Warehouse we carry out your detailed analysis of the various factors that get into the design of the warehouse post which we disturb all the factors and analyse them in a detailed manner. Here we have listed various factors for a particular warehouse and these factors are very interconnected and they're interdependent. Let us go through them one by one here: product is the most important factor that need to be considered in the design of the warehouse. This is connected to the questions like: what is the value of the product you are going to store, what is the nature of the product and what is the size of the product and several other factors. When we say nature of the product questions like whether it is a chemical product or agriculture product, or information technology product or a medical device crops up.

What the kind of products you are going to store within the warehouse also in a great way influences in a greater manner the design of the warehouse. While designing a warehouse have answers to questions like: While the goods move in and out of a warehouse what is the volume and frequency of such movement, where is your market located, how you need to support your market, what is the demand from the market, what is a kind of demand you will be facing from the market today and in future, where are your suppliers located and what is the nature of the suppliers you are dealing with the service level agreements in place, the cost of operation of the warehouse like is it like ok to have a minimal cost or it should be kind of like I want to provide a better customer service. Also you could encounter to work on questions like can I offer a higher cost of operation and if so what is the capital expenditure you are going to invest on the land, building, name and centre missionaries within the warehouse.

How many levels you want to store so all the mentioned factors discussed previously are to be considered in the design of the Warehouse. We also need to consider the various factors such as the material handling equipment and also if we are going to use within the warehouse the regulatory framework within which the warehouse has to operate the insurance requirements, safety, security the load factor that is the load-bearing requirements of the particular warehouse the local condition that means kind of like the area in which the warehouse is going to be located the weather and the climatic condition of the particular area then the list of software that is Warehouse management system, transportation management system then the enterprise resource planning then how these software's like they will then be kind affect used within the warehouse then the transportation requirements also we need to consider a broader framework including social economic political and environmental factors that gets into their design of a warehouse.

Once the macro-level parameters are considered we need to get into the various operational aspects of the warehouse that is the number of decks required how many shipping docks are required, the spacing to accommodate the office space, restrooms, security office, labour conditions in that locality along with utilities such as water and power look out for ventilation. So from the above discussion it becomes evident that to design a warehouse rather than going with a fixed mind set it is good to be open and search for exhaustive factors, carry a detailed analysis and then narrow down on actual influencing factors and then develop a model of the warehouse.
