Abstract

In today‘s rapidly changing and globally volatile world, manufacturers pay strong efforts on conducting lean production, outsourcing their components, and management on the complex supply chain. Warehouse management plays a vital role to be a successful player in the any kinds of industry which put-away process is a key activity that brings significant influence and challenges to warehouse performance. In this dynamic operating environment, minimizing the operation mistakes and providing accurate real time inventory information to stakeholder become the basic requirements to be an order qualifier. An OLAP based intelligent system called Fuzzy Storage Assignment System (FSAS) is proposed to increase availability of decision support data and convert the human knowledge into system for tackling the storage location assignment problem (SLAP). To validate the feasibility of this proposed system, a prototype will be worked out for a third party logistics company.
