Too small

Dimensioning or determining the required dimensions. For a new mezzanine floor, for example, or your new to be build warehouse. So that it is big enough and has enough room for growth. But no too big, as that costs too much money.

Pretty delicate decisions, which is not always easy as we see in practice. Many new warehouses appear to be too small within 2 years after delivery. How do you prevent that?

Impact analysis

Usually growth scenarios consist of only one number: the average expected annual growth  for all product groups across all sales channels. We don't believe in this approach and that's why we make always an impact analysis. Why? Two percent growth per year in voluminous, fast-moving articles in the B2C channel can easily lead to a three times larger warehouse compared to an annual five percent volume growth in slow-moving small goods in the wholesale channel.

That is why. Awareness leads to better decisions and our software can help with that.

Servator sizing model

We collect sales, product master data and key figures and map the existing storage and operational areas. The better the data, the more accurate the results. Together we determine a broad but realistic range of growth scenarios per product group and sales channel. All data then enters the model. We use sensitivity analyzes to show which scenario will be the biggest driver of space and investment. As a catch, you get an optimal layout of the storage and the expected hit rate per storage zone.

Then the choice is yours and we can start talking about possible designs.
