Warehouse Design and Layout

The first step in creating solutions for any warehouse design is understanding the business and its needs. At Naumann/Hobbs, we start every project by learning the details so we can design an efficient, balanced solution.

Customized for Your Business, and Your Storage Needs

  • People and processes
  • Spaces and facilities
  • Operational processes
  • Material handling equipment, technology and systems.

Data-Driven Approach

  • Practical
  • Adaptable
  • Efficient
  • Cost-effective
  • Flexible
  • Scalable

Goal-Oriented Solutions

We then consider all feasible alternatives against very specific design criteria before evaluating and analyzing until the optimal solution is developed and designed. We begin without any preconceived bias, allowing the data and the analysis to inform the very best solution, driven by your business goals.

Warehouse Layouts for Optimized ROI

Before any solution is designed, we work with our clients to establish the business case and criteria for ensuring that their ROI is achieved. The business case includes ensuring that new solutions:

  • Deliver the expected financial return (ROI)
  • Integrate with existing and/or new operations, processes, and systems
  • Implement per client requirements
  • Flex and scale to meet future requirements

Our design engineers develop solutions based on your requirements, including:

  • Inventory — SKUs, cubic velocities, product slotting
  • Order characteristics — lines and units per order, peak-to-demand ratios
  • Processes — receiving, put-away, picking, replenishment, packing, QC, sortation, shipping
  • Customer service — value-added services, store/client readiness
  • Facility — space and flow
  • Business — growth, flexibility, scalability, agility
