Abstract

Vytec Corporation is a subsidiary of Owens Corning and is a leading manufacturer of vinyl siding. The operations analyst wanted to determine if there was a more efficient way to organize the company's warehouse. After finding some high demand products being stored a long distance from the shipping dock, his first reaction was to move the product closer to the shipping area, reducing the time and distance required to retrieve the product for shipping. Doing so, however, would displace another product that should also be near the docks. Further research into the problem revealed many other issues. Two files are available - the case data file, product '7B03E013' and the solver model '5B03E13'.
