Abstract

A number of domestic and foreign companies have long been struggling with the problem of storage and supply. Warehouses are an important part of the logistics chain as a link among the supplier, the manufacturer and the final consumer. As such, their concepts and use should be considered in the light of defined strategic objectives of the company. Inventories in all their forms (input materials, semi-finished products, inter-operational supplies, stocks of finished products, etc.) significantly affect the entire logistics system, which they conclusively belong to. Their optimal management is reflected in the economic performance of the company.The paper presents a case study of the distribution warehouse design in conditions of engineering company. This store should serve to balance unequal customer demand. A specification of key factors had been carried out, in particular, the types of stored materials and their distribution by type of packaging, inventory analysis, sales analysis. Subsequently, the size of the expedition store was determined. The proposals were verified with a dynamic simulation. That helped determine the suitability of the proposed solution.

Keywords: Storage, expedition, material analysis, dynamic simulation
