Abstract:This thesis presents efficiency improvements for the warehouse of Trioliet. The ever-increasing trend towards more product variety and short response times has placed an enormous emphasis on the ability to establish smooth and efficient logistic operations. The efficiency and effectiveness in a distribution network is largely determined by operating of the warehouse. In this thesis the current performance of the warehouse is analyzed for exposing inefficiencies. Literature is reviewed and practical solutions are thought of for solving these inefficiencies. New solutions are judged upon the improvement of the efficiency of the warehouse. For the solutions that improve the overall efficiency implementation plans are created.
