A set of computer programs provides the warehouse designer with information necessary for optimization of material storage and retrieval in proposed warehouse layouts. The programs use input from existing stock item files and the designer's storage specifications to calculate the quantity required of each storage mode and size. Given further data from the designer on the proposed warehouse layout, the programs produce specific item location addresses according to each item's volume and frequency of demand.
