The correct approach to plan for warehouse automation is to develop a Warehouse Strategic Master Plan (WSMP). The WSMP provides the future direction for the warehouse over a five or ten-year period. It addresses the facilities, staffing, equipment and inventory required throughout to meet the corporate business plan. The role of warehouse automation is a significant portion of a WSMP. The automation plan should be regarded as one component of a broader view and not a separate end unto itself.
