    THE INFLUENCE OF DISTANCE CALCULATION ON THE LOCATION OF CENTRAL WEREHOUSE

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 3 (2018), Issue 1, pg(s) 21-24

    Choosing the right warehouse location is very important question which should be considered with great care, because it has a direct influence on the operating cost. For solving this problem many methods are on disposal. According to the way of determination of new warehouse location these methods can be divided in two groups’: qualitative methods and quantitative methods. Quantitative methods are often used in practice from the reason greater objectivity and possibility to analyse obtained results. Most often used methods are: gravity method, load distance method, Weber problem and many others. For calculating of distance in the load distance method two approaches are in use rectilinear distance and Euclidean distance. Neither one of these two approaches credibly describes transport routes because they not taken into consideration any physical obstacles that might occur between potential warehouse locations. With the goal to determine the influence of distance calculation on the result of the load distance method, choice analysis of optimal location of warehouse for retail stores, shops in the urban area was performed and presented.

    DETERMINING OF STORAGE SITE LOCATION WITHIN PRODUCTION SYSTEMS

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 11 (2017), Issue 10, pg(s) 490-493

    Analysing of material flows within the boundaries of the production system it is possible to conclude that the sources and sinks of those material flows are storages. In those storages in the function of the kind and the type numerous processes are implemented. These storage processes along with the material handling processes are responsible for quantitative and dynamic balancing of material flows and as such have a significant impact on the total cost and productivity of the production system. Due to the above reasons, the design of storage is an important task which needs to be adequately accessed. Regardless of the kind and the type and the associated processes within storage one of the main activities in the design phase of storage is to define its location, with special emphasis on interaction with other elements of the production system (production and processing equipment, material handling equipment and devices, etc.). Namely, selection of the right location, among other things ensuring the necessary conditions which will make the process of storage to meet the technical and technological, economic, organizational, IT and other requirements upon it.
