SCSA adds value by producing warehouse designs that reflect the role of the warehouse, the value that the warehouse adds to customers’ supply chains and the relationship between people, process, technology and the facility.
The mix of major processes should be considered first. These include (as necessary): Pick and Pack, Cross-dock and Flow through processes incorporating receival, putaway, picking, despatch, packaging, stock maintenance and kitting activities.
Appropriate information, materials handling, storage, packaging and security technologies and their applications can then be selected.
Attributes of people required can then be determined including: number, roles, competencies, knowledge, skills, attitude, Human Factors Engineering, productivity/KPI, management and supervision.
Then finally the facility concept design to house the optimum solution can be described including: area, height, access (size and location of doors/thoroughfares/restrictions on support locations etc), floor capacity, floor level, ventilation, lighting, orientation, docks, temperature, fire, security, elevation, site location, services (type and location) and traffic flow – internal and external.
