The logistical organisation, as part of the routing of products, from manufacturing to the points of consumption, is a succession of transport and warehousing phases. Within the framework of the logistical platform, storage is the upstream part of the process, handled by the reception and stock management departments. While the downstream process managed by order preparation and dispatch corresponds to de-stocking.
In this report, we will address the different facets of storage, taking care to analyse the logistics theory, and also the constraints of the reality on the ground. Indeed, in terms of physical storage structures as in-stock management activities, to take just these examples, the reality of storage may differ from standard rules due to the specificities of the products, the location of the site or the organisation of the cells inside/outside the site.
[...] It will be prudent to consider as many classes of products as you have cells or distinct zones for. C. Focus on the implementation of stocks in picking The pickings are the places on the ground, under the pallets, where the handlers pick up the ordered goods and operate the palletising (arrangement of the products on the pallets and packaging). However, this method of preparation involves a certain number of constraints, in particular, that of ensuring that the quality of the products is preserved (no damaged packaging, etc.). [...]
[...] Customer satisfaction, particularly in terms of lead times, will be achieved by appropriate storage and stock management procedures and the best use of space in the warehouse. II. Stock management The job of the stock manager is not only related to storage, so to stay on the subject, in this report, but we will only address the techniques of these professionals that allow a better configuration of stocks, it is a question of optimising space and time. The main subject of the study concerns the implementation of stocks on the platform. A. [...]
[...] The risk of stacked storage and above all the probability of collapse. It is therefore up to the forklift driver/manager in charge of storage to identify possible problems of overweight of a massif in view of the quality of the supports of the products, which he does not necessarily know in advance Second problem: the height of the bed In order to optimise storage, the manager will always want to use the maximum ceiling height allowed by the dimensions of the storage cell. [...]
[...] Warehousing as an important link in logistics optimisation What is usually called logistics optimisation is to be linked with the satisfaction of the end customer's needs. Indeed, it is about delivering the right product, to the right place, at the right time and at the best cost (which allows the salesman to remain competitive, or to align with the competition with a higher margin). A. The right product Delivering the right reference in itself is not necessarily related to the storage function. [...]
[...] At the right time This is where storage is a key phase in the logistics organisation. A good method of storage lends itself to fluidity about the activity inside the warehouse. As a reminder, there are four main departments on a logistics site: the reception department, which unloads, checks the goods on arrival and then stores them; the stock management department, which ensures the quality and quantity of the references in stock, monitors them and looks for the causes of any discrepancies; the order preparation department, which provides the products of good quality and quantity; and finally the dispatch department, which checks the goods on departure and loads them into the vehicles destined for the correct destination.
