Research Insight: Organizing warehouse management

One of the most read articles in the International Journal of Production and Operations Management is Faber et al’s “Organizing Warehouse Management” (Vol. 33 Iss: 9, pp.1230 – 1256).   We’re not surprised this has been reviewed so often, this is a topic that is fairly fundamental to operations management but is under researched.   Moreover the article is very good at doing what it says i.e. explaining how warehouses are organised and managed, and identifying the main factors that influence this – namely task complexity and market dynamics.
