Overview

Business Problem

With the rise of e-commerce comes an increase in warehouses. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of warehouses has increased by roughly 7% in the last 5 years alone. Having the right material and personnel in place at the right time has been one of the most challenging aspects of warehouse resource planning. If a warehouse has too much material on hand, not only will it result in a poor use of working capital, it can also result in additional holding and storage costs, and occupy space needed for other material, hindering operations and slowing production. On the other hand, if the warehouse doesn’t have enough inventory, this will result in lost revenue, as well as customer frustration. Warehouses continue to struggle to efficiently plan resource usage.
