Limited space Self storage for products is a common problem in the management of the business or goods-based industries. This will greatly affect the pace of production operations with activities forced to be temporarily suspended as there is no space available to store manufactured goods. With a wide variety of products, this will further increase the complexity of managing storage areas such as placing goods, finding goods, and picking up goods. Putting items into several special groups will certainly structure the search so that it becomes more focused. Even in this case, you will easily find the item you need. Transportation activities will certainly be more targeted.
However, there is a study conducted to test the level of reliability of the warehouse storage space management system, where the study shows that random or random storage systems have greater potential benefits, especially in terms of reducing total costs and also utilization of storage space. In other words, the operational activities of warehouse storage become more efficient when implementing this random storage policy. Of course, this is while still paying attention to several things so that its effectiveness is achieved properly. The main advantage of this random storage system is related to better space utilization compared to other storage policies.
This is because there are no bulkheads or restrictions on certain product items that can only be stored at certain locations in the warehouse. This condition allows for better optimization of space use where each storage area is treated equally for each type of product. Meanwhile, the effect of using the random item placement system is that it will increase the travel distance to find the location of stored items. Of course, in this case, when you need an item urgently, of course, you will find it difficult to find it because the pile of items is irregular.
