Stadtwerk Tübingen – Between December 2012 and March 2013 IntechLog conducted a process analysis for the Stadtwerk Tübingen to optimize the indoor and outdoor warehouse layouts, with the objective of reducing the surface occupied especially by the outdoor warehouse.
Such a warehouse is peculiar, since the service offered does not follow strict revenue principles, but it is more citizen-oriented with a particular care for the public eye. The level of service is extremely high and the need of parts is mostly unpredictable, with the exception of pre-planned works, such as the renewal of streets. Parts range from heavy pipes to cables to screws and nails.
The project resulted with an optimization design of the layout for the outdoor warehouse: the developed concept offered the advantage of state of the art low-cost equipment enabling the vertical development of the warehouse, hence reducing the occupied surface of about 1.300 squared meters.
