Summary:
Warehousing System is a complex problem, requiring simultaneous consideration of a large number of intricately related issues. In this research author focuses on the computerization opportunities that are unique in maintaining smooth storage and retrieval operations and recouping a controlled inventory status of a warehouse system. The main objective in this research is to define how layout decisions can both depend on warehouse's operations and effect inventory control decisions of a warehouse system. Author had defined, designed and implemented a simulated warehousing system using SIMAN. In particular, author uses simulation modeling as an approach to analyze layout design and operations of a warehouse system. Also, author had developed a database management systems software application using dBase IV. This relational database is used to dynamically forecast inventory level. A case study is used as a test bed to verify and validate the work done.
