Warehouse Product Placement

You need to improve the receiving, picking, packing and shipping performance of your warehouse without the investment associated with a large scale change to layout and shelving, or moving to a new warehouse. The challenge is to determine the optimum physical location of stored items within the warehouse so as to minimise time taken (footsteps) to get to an item by locating fast moving items closer to the order assembly area than infrequently requested items and locate items that commonly go together (e.g. nuts next to bolts) to minimise the travel distance between related items.
