Capacity Utilisation and Effectiveness of Layouts

With the aid of drop down menus and system prompts the Warehouse Auditor reporting tool will assess the Capacity Utilisation and Effectiveness of the layouts within the warehouse facility focussing on the following areas; in addition to making comments, observations and where needed recommend corrective actions:

  • Does the layout make effective use of floor space?
  • Does the layout make effective use of available height?
  • Are the bulk storage locations well utilised?
  • Are the pick locations well utilised?
  • Are pickfaces appropriate for nature of product?
  • Are bulk locations appropriate for nature of product?
  • Does overall layout support good flow of product?
  • Are working patterns appropriate for use of capacity?

Warehouse Capacity Utilisation and Effective Layouts go hand in hand to ensure that the entirevolume of the warehouse (not just floor area) is, or at least has the potential to be, optimised.
