Secrets of the Smart Warehouse

Ten ways to think smarter about distribution center design. This paper will review four functional areas that are key to smart warehouse design and operation.

Distribution center planning and design requires a strategic approach and careful consideration. Is there an optimum distribution center design? Perhaps there is in the theoretical. To be sure, flexibility and scalability must be integral to the design in order to achieve the perfect balance between initial investment and future expandability. Data-driven analysis and metrics alone are insufficient. They must be tempered with experience in the day-to-day operation of a distribution center. The Secrets of the Smart Warehouse white paper reviews four functional areas - situation assessment; planning/design; workflow considerations; and health, safety and environmental issues - key to the smart warehouse.
