Warehouse is a storing distribution goods. The point is to processor buffer the inventory. Goods stored can be in the form of raw materials for production or goods that are ready to be distributed. Functionally, warehouses support inventory or inventory so that the items needed are always maintained in the right amount of time when needed. For example, in the factory, there will be a warehouse for raw materials, while the distribution for warehouses is also needed as a storage medium. Warehouse location also has differences, for example for raw materials, the location will usually be located near the factory, while for distribution warehouses located near the area to be distributed. The characteristics of the items to be stored also vary. For example for electronic goods will be different from handling chemical goods. This difference can be indicated from the warehouse needs, for example, temperature, humidity or physical form of the self storage.
From these differences in needs, what is needed is called warehousing management. Warehousing management will do planning for location, site arrangement, planning of goods flowing in and out, human resource management and facilities and infrastructure that support processes in warehouses such as tools, pallets, shelves and software/software needed. Modern management of warehousing management, not only does the management of goods in and out, but also analyzes all the processes that occur in the warehouse. The goal is to make continuous changes so that the process in the warehouse is more effective and efficient. The production company previously planned what and how much to produce. From the plan, orders are made to suppliers to support the production process. Some things ordered to suppliers include raw materials, product packaging materials.
From the supplier, raw materials will be sent according to the needs of the manufacturer. If the goods ordered from the supplier have arrived, then the process is then carried out production and produce the product. From these products are distributed to distributors or to customers directly.
