MGT 496 Week 2 Discussion 2
As the warehouse director for B.M.W for the new facility, I believe the measures put in place will assist the organization in the efficient movement of product. However the one change I would advise is the implementation of the Adjustable pallet racking (APR) technique. This system is identified by the use of adjustable horizontal beams between the vertical uprights. This will allow for flexibility in changes to the production line run. The only problem would be need for wider aisles. The fix would be In the text it states “APR rack lengths of around 25 to 30 meters favor good flow movements with gaps as needed to give cross gangway access” (Emmett, 2005, p 124). This improved access will allow for faster movement in the facility and in turn reduced cycle time.
