Direction of Storage
STORAGE  BY  SIZE.—  The  principle  of storage by size is that the storage or warehouse layout is determined by the size and bulk of the material being stored. In addition to size and bulk, some factors to be considered are the anticipated stock  level  for  an  item,  the  frequency  of  receipt and issue, and the difficulty in moving the item. Storing items by size does not always permit the fast-moving items to be closest to the issue point. POPULARITY  STORAGE.—  In  popularity storage, the items with the highest turnover rate are stored as close as possible to the receipt and breakout  point.  Figure  7-6  illustrates  this  method of  storage.  Popularity  storage  is  generally  con- sidered the best method of storage since it allows quick  access  to  fast-moving  stores.  Experience  and conditions  show  that  a  combination  of  the  various methods  of  storage  will  better  suit  your  needs. STORAGE  DETERMINED  BY  MATERIAL CHARACTERISTICS.— The  material  character- istics of some items make it necessary to provide special storage areas for them. Two examples of this are hazardous materials, which must be stored in an area where the material hazard is controlled or  eliminated,  and  pilferable  items,  which  must be stored in buildings or areas where security for the items can be maintained. WORK  AREAS.—   The  storage  layout  of  a warehouse  should  contain  provisions  for  an  of- fice and work area. This space should be kept to a minimum and not exceed an area larger than that  required  to  handle  an  average  workload.  The office  and  work  area  should  be  located  as  close as   possible   to   the   main   access   door   of   the warehouse. Aisles One  of  the  most  important  features  of  good warehousing is aisle arrangement. Five types of aisles are used in Navy warehouses: main, cross, personnel,  fire,  and  service. MAIN AISLES.— The main aisles serve as the lifeline  or  arteries  of  a  warehouse.  Main  aisles generally run the length of the building and should be kept clear at all times. They are located so that they give direct access to shipping and receiving platforms,  doorways  between  sections,  and  in multistory buildings they give access to elevators and  conveyors.  The  number  of  main  aisles  in  a section  or  on  a  floor  of  a  multistory  building depends on the number of communicating doors and  elevators  required  to  move  material  in  and out of the area. The number of main aisles is also determined somewhat by the size of the lots and Figure 7-6.—Popularity system of storage. 7-19
