Abstract

This ongoing 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 using simulation technology. Research problem of allocating resources to two different prioritised packing areas is addressed. A framework for a simulation model is developed to initiate the packing operations for both regular and important areas which called VIP packing areas. 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” scenario will be developed to manifest problem areas.
