Store Optimizer 3.0

store optimizer

Store Optimizer 3.0 is a decision-support tool (DST) for warehouse design and operations management for less-than-unit-load and unit-load forward-reserve OP environment. Such system supports the design of complex multi-zones forward-reserve picker-to-part storage systems and provides a set of scenarios and configurations to fit SKUs and customer requirements of generic businesses. The proposed interactive computer platform implements a set of quantitative data-oriented analyses involving the most relevant criticalities of a storage system. The tool, considering a set of problems and decisions (e.g. layout planning, storage allocation, storage assignment, zoning, routing, order-batching and benchmarking), leads the decision-maker to handle real case studies, highlighting and interdependency among processes and related decisions and to pin down useful guide lines over storage issues.

lane optimizer

Lane Optimizer 1.0 is a decision-support tool (DST) for warehouse design and operations management for unit-load storage environment. The proposed tool focuses on the design and management of unit load warehouses, where pallets load are moved in, through and out the system. These systems are the simplest to design and manage since layout and operation concerns are suitable to mathematical approach and modelization. Pallet-load storage systems typically handle commodities and other products characterized by large volume demand and high throughput. There are many enterprises and general industry sectors adopting these common and simple storage systems formats such as tissue, beverage, dry food, fashion, etc. [...]
