Warehouse Modernization & Planning Guide (NS529)
NAVSUP Publication 529
This massive sourcebook for warehousing design is packed with over 700 pages of illustrations, procedures and design data. It explains how to analyze, select, design and evaluate warehouse operations, plans and equipment. It contains detailed procedures for analysis of inventory and transaction activity and how to use this analysis for equipment selection.
NAVSUP 529 was prepared by our affiliate, The Sims Consulting Group, for the U.S. Navy. This publication has become the de facto standard for all Department of Defense warehouses. While published originally in 1983, the procedures are timeless, information is surprisingly current and even the cost data is still relevant for comparison. This downloadable pdf file is a scanned copy of the original publication.
