Abstract

This study presents the improvement of the storage location for the finished goods warehouse in sportswear manufacturing.  The objective is to increase the efficiency of finished goods storage in more operational work. In the current condition, the warehouse has stored finished goods at the non-fixed location explicitly, causing them to take long time for moving to the storage location. Therefore, the authors determined the locations for storing the products. ABC analysis with the concept of grouping analysis theory was applied to organize into groups of goods from its movement. In addition, MATLAB, software for computing the storage location on the principle of the binary integer linear program, was enhanced to determine the location for storing products appropriately by considering the moving time significantly. As a result of the study, the storage improvement by the new storage location enhances to diminish the overall storage time of the classified group A and B to 16.12 % and 11.55%, respectively. Classified group C has an average moving time of 23.71 seconds per one shelf.
