thesis / dissertation description
Warehouses can be hazardous, inefficient, and costly if not managed correctly. A commercial brake testing facility sought a warehouse inventory management system to reduce cost, save time, and minimize storage area. A tool was designed using Microsoft Excel to organize items in inventory and eliminate unnecessary items. This reduction allowed for the option to relocate the storage area. A cost analysis involving data collection and CAD floor plans showed savings in time, cost, and area. The inventory management system will be easy to implement and utilize.
