Abstract

The goal of this project was to reorganize and design the warehouse at Brierly Lombard Company, Inc, to enable a more time efficient order filling process. We observed the current operations and consulted with employees to collect data on product location, sales volume, space utilization and physical dimensions of the warehouse. Then the warehouse layout was revised to better suit the company's needs. The reorganized warehouse can serve as a solution to the problem of space utilization and long order filling times.
