1 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi FAALC Distribution System Operational Improvements FAA Logistics Center Joe McClure, Darryl Thompson University of Oklahoma Principal Investigators: Tom Landers Shivakumar Raman Research Assistants: Stephanie Cox Aylin Civan, Kelli Robinson Global Concepts Randy Kirk

2 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi FAALC Distribution Center for Field Service Parts Profile: National Distribution Center supporting field locations and local circuit card repair shops High mix of low volume service parts Extremely high field system up-time requirements

3 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Reasons for Improvement Roof Refurbishment & Stock Room Moves An opportunity to review the layout Make improvements where needed Mini-Load ASRS Hard to Support Parts hard/impossible to find More frequent hardware failures Extremely costly to operate

4 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Analysis and Design High Level Material Flow Planning Performance Assessment of the Mini-Load ASRS Review data and profile activity(inbound, stocking, outbound) Detailed Design of Stocking and Layout

5 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Previous LSF Layout C D E F G A & B Inspection Repack & Crating Bulk & Over-sized Storage Repairable Items Serviceable Items MINI- load AS/RS Secure Storage & Other Storage Shipping Packing Bulk Storage Receiving

6 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Mini-Load ASRS Assessment Utilization: 75% Up-time: 75% Storage/retrieval cycle time: 1-2 min Space Utilization: 30% of 12” bins empty < 50% of 24” bin cubic space empty Costs: Pending Upgrade:$1M O&M:$500K/year

7 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Mini-Load ASRS Assessment Low Rise System – poor floor- space utilization Reliability Problems Outdated Technology Lots of Unused Bin Space Costly De-commission the MINI!!!

8 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Overall Material Flow Assessment 10% of stock(4,100 items) cause 90% of activity 19,000 items have not moved in 2 years Travel distances long Large conveyor little used, blocking flow Need Streamlined Flow!!! Popularity-Based Buffering!!!

9 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Operational Improvements Considering “80-20 rule”, best practices, & growth: Centralize operations in south end of LSF (Area G): tShipping/Receiving docks, Crating, Inspection, & Repack tCentralize Packing in Area G, also Remove the MINI & the conveyor system Put high activity items closest to Area G (Area F); put slow movers further back (Areas E - C)

10 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Additional Improvements In key areas use carton-flow rack & static shelving to store more in less space Use wheeled lift-truck or cart traffic in place of conveyor system (more flexible) Continue with study of Warehouse Management System (WMS) software

11 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Planned Straight-line Flow C D E F G A & B Inspect & Repack Crate TSF Receive & Ship Pack High Activity Items Low Activity Items Very Low Activity Items Growth 90% of Activity Secure Storage

12 Center for Engineering Logistics & Distribution CELDi Impact of Improvements Investment -- $1M Savings One Time -- $2M(cost avoidance) Mini Upgrade:$1M Roof Refurbishment in D:$1M Annual -- $500K Fast Payback!!
