Warehouse Physics Part I
Warehouse operations are subject to inherent relationships which trace back to flow dynamics principles present in all flow systems. However, warehouse systems have specific characteristics which urge for special modelling attention.
- Warehousing as a flow system
- Flow systems dynamics
- Warehousing as a special set of flow systems
Part B (Basics)
Three key warehouse parameters revisited:
- Lead time
Part C (Laws applied)
- Applications of warehouse physics: the mathematical implementations
- Hands-on mathematics
Warehouse Physics Part II
The concept of the “closed system” in the warehouse.
- Explaining the case we are working on and calculating through the different topics, including management objectives
- Characteristics of buffers and flows in the warehouse to function within the closed system
- Handling units in the warehouse moving through the flow and buffers and transformation of the handling units
- Characteristics of the resources and their limitations to realise the flows
- Impact of the concept on the organisation of the operation and the layout of the warehouse
- Planning and control model with explanation of algorithms to calculate the best fit within the closed system given variability of some inputs
- Performance measurement in this concept
- Linking the “closed system” to the warehouse environment (transport, production, purchasing and inventory management, …)
- Expected benefits and risks of this concept
