Abstract

One of the largest companies in Slovenia has been confronted with the dilemma of building a new storage distribution centre (SDC) or to find additional capacity by optimizing the exiting one. The company initiated a project with a goal to describe and analyze operation of the existing SDC and to propose measures for operation improvements. The research methodology and the results are based on a simulation model of SDC that allows more detailed analysis of the system operation, obtaining technical efficiency under different constraints, identifying the potentials for optimization and verifying effectiveness and justification of the proposed improving measures.
