A Step-by-Step Process in a Warehousing Startup

It starts with a plan. The plan describes the warehouse you want once the operation is underway. The plan includes expected results.

From the plan, create the process, and that is a step-by-step description of how the warehouse will work, starting with receiving and ending with shipment.

The next step is to provide a test inventory layout, including tentative decisions regarding slotting. The layout considers space utilization and the minimization of travel.

What tools will be used maximize storage effectiveness and to minimize labor?

Finally, install those KPIs (or metrics) that will allow you to easily measure quality and productivity.
