Logistics site planning: the holistic view of the project?
Logistics planning is about creating a concept for logistics processes and enabling their implementation. Integrated into this planning step is a look at the logistics concept so that all sub-aspects can be taken into account.
Logistics site planning includes the following individual aspects:
- Sequences and structures of all logistic processes
- Specifications of the sites, buildings as well as other facilities
- Analysis of the operating resources and IT systems that can be used
At the beginning of logistics site planning, TARGET values (tasks, goals) as well as requirements are defined. This is considered and prioritized together with key business data so that criteria can then be established and actual values integrated. The following analysis includes about variants of possible storage concepts, which are presented for discussion.
A finished logistics site concept includes data on organization and dimensioning, budget and technology deployment, and a comparison of individual variants.
