dc.description.abstract This project design could be used to determine whether more space can be created within the Nissan Parts Distribution Centre by changing the way part are binned as well as the binning layouts. It factors in the sizes of parts as well as the demands. When designing a warehouse system, the following needs to be addressed: • Space utilization • Equipment utilization • Accessibility and traceability of all parts • Protection and security of all parts However, there are various other factors that also need to be considered, such as good housekeeping, implementation of newer technologies that in the long run, would prove beneficial to the warehouse as well as classification of parts into groups. When parts have been classified into appropriate groups based on sizes, demands and values, the warehouse can be designed as such as to promote the quick distribution of these groups. Parts that are of high demand and high value, such as Group A parts need to be located in the warehouse in such a manner that travel distances and picking times are kept to a minimum. en
