Planning the store

  • P. J. H. Baily

Abstract

A store which has been properly designed or planned can be operated efficiently and makes economic use of space and equipment. Planning involves a number of compromises. Space can be saved at the expense of time. Time can be saved by using more space. Manpower usage can be balanced against labour-saving machinery; in countries where land is cheap, wages are low and people are looking for work, the automatic warehouses used in high-wage economies do not make economic sense.
