Research on Logistics Center Layout Based on SLP

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE,volume 286)


Systematic layout planning (SLP) has been widely applied to the production system, but not to the service system. Combined with the goals, influencing factors, and conditions of logistics center layout, this paper probes into the application of SLP to the layout of the rapidly increasing logistics centers in large- and medium-sized cities in recent years. According to the logistics relationship and non-logistics relationship between work units in the logistics center, the author decides the position of work units and maps out the initial position relationship chart. Through further amendments and adjustment based on the move line and other factors, the author gets the feasible layout plan. Finally, this paper uses a medicine logistics center in Jiangsu Province as an example to design, analyze, and evaluate for the purpose of providing some theoretical basis and method for reference in the service system layout.

  1. 1.

    The sectors at all levels in a logistics center are called work units.

  2. 2.

    The distance of movement of logistics products in a certain time of cycle is called logistics intensity.
