Abstract

Nowadays any improvement of warehouse performance might bring a competitive advantage for the company in respect to highly competitive logistics market. This ongoing MSc research presents the previous practice of adopting mathematical programming to improve warehouse management process. The warehouse layout with a number of operating constraints was determined for future improvement. The investigation of the state-of-the-art of warehouse modeling practice is the first stage of this research. This stage is necessary in providing an idea about development of linear programming model and all possible areas of improvement. The linear programming model development was next stage of the research. Further the proposed model will be validated
thought a real case study. Sensitivity analysis will be applied in order to test the affect of changing a number of inventory policies.
