    Abstract

    This on-going MBA work shows what main problems a leading warehouse management faces nowadays and attempts to tackle one of the problems within the packing area. It also suggests ways to improve warehouse productivity that affects construction management performance using simulation technology. Research problem of allocating resources to two different prioritised packing lanes is addressed. A framework for a simulation model is developed to initiate the packing operations for both regular and important lanes which called VIP packing lanes. Case study of one of the warehouses located in Nuneaton, UK is considered. A logical diagram is developed to reflect the workflow in the packing area. A future work “As-Is” and “What-If” scenarios will be developed to manifest problem areas and try to fully utilize the resources between different packing lanes.
