State-of-the-art warehouse planning

We show you the most economical solution for your warehouse

We are your warehouse planner – from manual to fully automated

At warehouse planning the necessary data must first be collected and analyzed. This includes the master data of the products to be stored as well as the movement data or performance data of the warehouse. In addition to the product types, the dimensions and weight are also important master data. Properties such as explosive or flammable are also important information. Furthermore, it is important to know which load carrier is to be stored, such as a pallet or a small load carrier (KLT). Performance data includes information such as the number of warehouse movements such as storage and retrieval. With this basic information, the warehouse planning can now be started. The focus is on screening suitable storage systems. These range from manual to fully automated. The warehouse technology that promises the greatest economic benefit is selected. However, factors such as expandability or flexibility are also in focus. Bross & Partner supports you in the creation of the planning basis as well as the preparation of an economic warehouse concept.

Inventory-optimized warehouse planning along the supply chain

In addition, Bross & Partner examines the number and level of storage stages in a holistic approach. This prevents unnecessary storage at the wrong point in the value chain. The requirements for warehouses are becoming increasingly complex. For example, because certain industries have special specifications. In addition, maximum flexibility with corresponding cost-effectiveness is crucial. As a consultancy for factory planning and logistics, we examine which storage system is most suitable. Possible solutions range from manual to fully automated warehouses.

Warehouse planning with economic benefit

What is stored where, what is it and how much of it is in the warehouse? A warehouse concept needs a lot of data of the products to be stored in order to work efficiently with it. For example, you not only need to know which products are in the warehouse in the first place, but also where they are and whether certain storage conditions need to be observed. In addition to master data, movement data and performance data are also important. Only when all this data has been collected can you move into warehouse planning. Now it is a matter of finding the warehouse technology that promises the greatest economic benefit. Suitable storage systems range from manual to fully automated. Furthermore, factors such as flexibility and expandability are in focus.

The four core components of warehouse planning

The requirements placed on a warehouse are becoming increasingly complex. Factors such as maximum flexibility and economic efficiency are decisive. Warehouse planning consisting of four core components should therefore always be common practice:

Warehouse organization
This includes warehouse control and storage location management

Storage and transport technology
Important points are the storage service type and the rack type

Stock unit
The storage aids and the stored goods are to be defined here

Warehouse layout
A distinction is made here between coarse layout and fine layout.

On the way to optimal warehouse planning, the first step is to determine the goals, which consist of the requirements for the warehouse. By determining the basics, existing data can be prepared and analyzed. Through the warehouse organization, the warehouse process is optimized, whereby flexible storage areas are defined as well as concrete delivery concepts. Now the storage and transport technology is selected before the final layout is designed.
