During the past ten years, product proliferation, the trend toward larger facilities serving more markets, dramatic increases in the cost of labour and of plant and equipment and customers requiring faster, more dependable deliveries of smaller quantities have greatly increased management's awareness of the need for product flow planning and control. It is now well recognised that the movement and storage of goods is a vital link between production and marketing which is capable of having a significant impact on the overall profitability of the firm and, therefore, must be carefully planned and controlled.
