Abstract:

A non-profit organization often has a wide variety of constraints. These include staffing, equipment, or the need to maintain a minimum break even cash flow, This means that such organizations must be effective and must run efficiently. SHARE-Tampa Bay is a non-profit organization that distributes food packages out of a warehouse facility. This research focuses on improving the effectiveness of material handling in the SHARE warehouse. The major areas of focus included movement of the food pallets for the satellite warehouses, the process flow and associated material handling on Distribution Day, and the layout design of the facility.
