The paper focuses on warehouse and internal logistics management. The objective of the paper is to investigate the effect of some critical parameters (i.e. the number of incoming trucks from suppliers, the number of outgoing trucks to retailers, the number of forklifts and lift trucks, etc.) on the warehouse internal logistic costs. To this end the authors develop a parametric simulator equipped with a graphic user interface (for changing the most important warehouse parameters) that the user can use for performing what-if analysis and scenarios investigation. An application example is finally proposed: after a sensitivity analysis, the analytical relationship between the internal logistic costs and the warehouse critical parameters is evaluated.

Abstract

The paper focuses on warehouse and internal logistics management. The objective of the paper is to investigate the effect of some critical parameters (i.e. the number of incoming trucks from suppliers, the number of outgoing trucks to retailers, the number of forklifts and lift trucks, etc.) on the warehouse internal logistic costs. To this end the authors develop a parametric simulator equipped with a graphic user interface (for changing the most important warehouse parameters) that the user can use for performing what-if analysis and scenarios investigation. An application example is finally proposed: after a sensitivity analysis, the analytical relationship between the internal logistic costs and the warehouse critical parameters is evaluated.
