Performance Data and Graphs on the “Warehouse Core” System

By Interroll

Flow storage has undergone continuous development in recent years, with technological innovations in flow storage technology and successful links with partial and fully automatic operating techniques leading to new system and integration concepts. This development at all levels has led to the development of new application functions and focus industries. Flow storage technology presents an attractive logistics-based and efficient alternative to conventional racking techniques within defined storage parameters.

The Department of Planning and Control of Storage and Transport Systems at the Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany has collated relevant influencing factors and compared flow storage technology with conventional static racking to present efficient applications for flow storage technology. Their calculations were based on investment and cost variables commonly applied in Western Europe. The results and following information are based on order picking warehouses with standard pallets.

The goal of the study was to ascertain the optimum storage volume, i.e. the ideal length, width and height dimensions of the warehouse core, according to the racking technology used. Full enumeration was used to calculate all the feasible options and select the optimum solution.
