The first consideration is the shelf-like nature of items.
Shelves are for goods, and the size of goods determines the size of shelves. Second, we need to consider the weight of the goods, so as to determine the materials and load. The third point is to choose different shelf types according to different storage units. For example, the unit USES pallet, storage cage, box, the type of shelf selected must be different.
The second factor to consider: warehouse plant architecture.
One of the first things we consider when we design the shelves is the warehouse structure. The main considerations here are: 1. The height of the warehouse determines the height of our shelves. 2. The position of columns and beams, which affects the overall arrangement of this shelf. 3. The bearing capacity of the floor affects the installation of the shelves and the loading of the shelves in the future. Consider lighting and fire protection.
A third consideration: shelf access.
The relationship between shelf storage and storage density is the same as the relationship between fish and bear's paw. The general plan is a compromise between the elements.
The fourth consideration is cargo handling equipment。
An important factor in providing warehouse efficiency on moving equipment, usually warehouses are configured for use by stacking trucks. This requires us to take full account of the stacking car specifications, models when designing the width of the shelves.
The last point is: input and output.
The amount of stock in and out can measure whether the type of shelf we choose is wasted. For example, some shelves have good storage density, but low inbound and outbound volumes, which is not a good fit.
These are some of the things we need to pay attention to when we design the shelves. But it is very important. It determines whether the shelf design is reasonable, whether the material is wasted, and whether it meets our storage requirements.
