Abstract:For many years, Vezet has faced growth in turnover and production volume. The production facility in Warmenhuizen is recently expanded, new machines are bought and new products types are introduced, but the warehouse operations have not fully participated in this growth. So, Vezet encounter more often problems with storing products in the warehouse. The managers of Vezet decided that it is time to review the warehousing performances and to research the future requirements at warehouse level. We identified multiple topics which were relevant for warehousing, and concluded that the volume utilization and location utilization were the most important measures for the Vezet warehouses. In the warehouse the main problem is related to the location utilization, while in the EAA-warehouse, the main problems are related to the volume utilization of individual locations. We created a model that is able to analyze the warehouse processes. This model helps us to acquire understanding about the warehouse operations.
