This paper presents a detailed study of the analysis on stockroom design, efficiency evaluation, functional case research, and computational support equipment. This and an earlier review on storage place operation provide a comprehensive report on existing educational research results in the framework of a methodical classiﬁcation. Every single research place within this framework is talked about, including the identiﬁcation of the restrictions of past research associated with potential upcoming research guidelines.

1 ) Introduction This kind of survey and a companion paper (Gu et ing., 2007) present a comprehensive overview of the state-of-art of stockroom research. Whereas the latter is targeted on warehouse procedure problems relevant to the several major factory functions, we. e., obtaining, storage, buy picking, and shipping, this kind of paper focuses on warehouse design, performance analysis, case studies, and computational support equipment. The goals are to provide an all-inclusive overview of the readily available methodologies and tools for improving storage place design techniques and to identify potential long term research guidelines. Warehouse design and style involves ﬁve major decisions as illustrated in Fig. 1: identifying the overall storage place structure; sizing and dimensioning the warehouse and its departments; determining the detailed structure within every department; selecting warehouse tools; and selecting operational approaches. The overall framework (or conceptual design) can determine the material ﬂow pattern inside the warehouse, the speciﬁcation of functional departments, and the ﬂow relationships among departments. The sizing and dimensioning decisions determine the scale and aspect of the factory as well as the space allocation amongst various warehouse departments. Section layout is the detailed conﬁguration within a factory department, for example , aisle conﬁguration in the retrieval area, pallet block-stacking routine in the hold storage area, and conﬁguration associated with an Automated Storage/Retrieval System (AS/RS). The equipment assortment deci* Matching author. Tel.: +1 404 894 2317; fax: plus1 404 894 2301. Email address: marc. [email protected] gatech. edu (M.

sions determine a proper automation level for the warehouse, and identify products types intended for storage, vehicles, order choosing, and selecting. The selection of the operation technique determines how a warehouse will probably be operated, for instance , with regards to safe-keeping and purchase picking. Operation strategies label those decisions about operations that have global effects about other style decisions, and thus need to be deemed in the style phase. Samples of such operation strategies are the choice between randomized storage space or dedicated storage, whether or not to do sector picking, as well as the choice between sort-while-pick or sortafter-pick. Thorough operational plans, such as how you can batch and route the order selecting tour, aren't considered design and style problems and tend to be discussed in Gu ain al. (2007). It should be stressed that storage place...
